I think it would be good if we became more naturally suspicious of groups that are very white, mostly male, loud and very self-righteous.

Your progressive points are a lot less progressive if you make them by disseminating imagery that may traumatize strangers on the Internet. Just because Nazi or klan imagery doesn’t impact *you* doesn’t mean you should send it around to make your cute little point.

Not to say Iran should not be shamed for its disgusting barbarity. It's just this type of international pressure has not been working. Case in point, the need to stop the execution of a child tomorrow morning. STOP the execution of #ArmanAbdolali!
URGENT - #ArmanAbdolali is set to be executed **tomorrow** at dawn in #Iran. He was just 17 when arrested - #Iran – you are breaking international law by sentencing children to death. RT for @Khamenei_fa to stop Arman Abdolali 's execution now.

We hadn't had much weather for months and then suddenly all the weather we had missed arrived on a single day. And it was loud.

What a great profile of @cherthedev by @ReedAlbergotti For all the press about whistle blowers & a different era ppl like her are still facing intense backlash. Apple truly operates with impunity, they don’t seem to think twice about overt retaliation. washingtonpost.com/technolog…

At the very other end of the spectrum, I once phoned the company I worked at — a team of then four people — and a colleague didn't recognize my voice and thought I was mistaken about the company I called.
SCOOP - And a wild one… Fraudsters used “deep voice” tech - as in deep fake for speech - to clone a company director’s voice. They then convinced a bank manager to send $35 million to various accounts across the world. AI-powered cybercrime is big. forbes.com/sites/thomasbrews…

Hello, if we're in a video call and a cat appears in your window I think that's cute and if a child appears in your window I think that's even cuter. That's the tweet.

My spare room is used for sewing and as a recording studio and I just hope I don't lose the thread halfway through the podcast recording

Tara is hands down one of the best people I've ever worked with and I am so excited about this award recognizing the work she, Eva and others have done and will continue to do.
Replying to @evacide
Tara Hairston is not on Twitter, because she knows better than to waste her time on this hellsite, but she also accepted the award, which is well-deserved because she is the glue that holds @StopStalkerware together.

I do a few speaking events for free each month. I've got my November free events in the books and am taking Dec and Jan off (Jan is off so that I don't do prep work in Dec!) So what I'm saying is, if you're looking for a speaker for your Meet Up/free event from Feb on, reach out!

How did people manage to spell 'occurrence' correctly in the time before spellcheckers?

People come to me to tell me about prominent people in my community who have sexually assaulted them with terrifying regularity. I ask them how they want me to treat their abusers and the answer I get most often is “just don’t let them have any of your social capital.”
Replying to @EvilleAlly
You have the social leverage to make it unacceptable for rapists and enablers to wine, dine and network publicly. Use it. You support women? Stop being socially polite to rapists! (4/4)

And, they are having trouble finding *any* remote work because of downsized homes and screaming kids needing schoolwork help in the background eliminate the possibility of phone support work and they lack degrees or certs for more flexible white collar professional work.
