Your privacy is not safe with social media

Not even if you are the President. Of course, you should have known that already -- so this is more about confirming the bias of the major social media platforms. When they are both biased and play such a large role in our lives, that's dangerous.

Also, there's this little tidbit:

Project Veritas“…he’s dangerous, I don’t like him and he’s a terrible human being and I want to get rid of him,” the self-described bleeding-heart liberal Haynes says in the video about President Trump. “In fact, we had internal reviews about that…”

This was a Project Veritas sting, which means someone probably called up Twitter and pretended to be law enforcement or part of Meuller's team to see what Twitter would do in response. They got someone who joined Twitter right before the election (so, hasn't been there very long). Not necessarily much of a story, it might just be him speaking off the cuff. Except... "we had internal reviews about that."

So people at Twitter, not just this guy, are thinking seriously about acting on this anti-Trump viewpoint.

Twitter Responds to Project VeritasThe individual depicted in this video was speaking in a personal capacity and does not represent or speak for Twitter. Twitter only responds to valid legal requests, and does not share any user information with law enforcement without such a request.

So Twitter's response is as predicted, claiming the man is speaking only for himself. But we had internal reviews about that. And, frankly, even if Haynes was just sharing his internal dialog about what he would be willing to do to look at President Trump's DMs... does Twitter have any internal safeguards to prevent Haynes from indulging his curiousity and abusing his authority as an admin and looking it up himself?

I have to assume Trump is smart enough to know this and treat his use of Twitter with the utter lack of seriousness it deserves, unlike, say, Anthony Weiner.
