Possibly the dumbest and most self-contradictory thing i’ve ever read (today).


With a name like Dataminr, you know it’s hip!


So the spy agencies pay a third party to act as a proxy. Twitter has done little here but increase the cost of spying but has done nothing with this move to prevent it.


I remember when all the hipsters wore miner hats.


Kinda like they’re doing with one particular high-profile user…
