So proud to announce I raised MORE MONEY from individual donors than Stephen Lynch did in Q1! Lynch's donations included $15k from CORPORATE PAC money! He works for corporations not people. Help me make up the Corporate PAC gap by contributing today!

This is a slap on the wrist—a fraction of the profits Facebook makes in a year. Facebook is a repeat offender & fines like this won’t stop them from breaking the law & violating our privacy again. It's going to take big, structural change. #BreakUpBigTech

In this Twitter exchange, jetBlue explains to a passenger how it got a photo of her face -- from the DHS https://boingboing.net/2019/04/23/in-this-twitter-exchange-jetb.html …

We absolutely need a strong legal framework around facial recognition. Right now, it’s anything goes - and it’s going to become Orwellian before we realize it. #techpolicymatters

Quoted @ValentinaInLA

Tesla reports huge $702 million dollar loss in the first quarter on just $4.5 billion in revenue. Last quarter, Tesla recorded a profit of $139 million on sales of $7.2 billion. A year ago, Tesla lost $710 million on $3.4 billion in revenue. @RaiNews

Tesla had a Q1 loss of almost a billion dollars. But the shift to EVs is about more than a stock price. It’s about getting off gasoline and addressing climate change. It’s frustrating that their success will only be evaluated in terms of money.

I would 💙💙💙 to see everybody who thinks differently from the misogynistic troglodyte quoted here donate a bit to Brianna’s election campaign. https://secure.actblue.com/donate/brianna-wu-for-congress …

For well over a decade, Detroit has been struggling with retaining their cops. In response, an avalanche of private security companies have rushed in. We follow one firm to find out more about their private police force on #VICENewsTonight at 7:30PM EDT on @HBO.

For people asking, this threat came from a @TutanotaTeam address. I reported it to their abuse team, and this is how they responded. “Hi Brianna, Thank you very much for reporting. Best wishes, Meike”

I don’t usually pick up calls from unknown numbers, but had one from MA today—glad I picked up because it was @BriannaWu! We chatted briefly about encryption and @ProtonMail... She would be an awesome member of Congress.

Facebook promoted the lawyer that authored the Patriot Act to chief council. This law damages our civil liberties to this very day, so it’s perfectly on brand for Facebook. They truly have no moral compass.

A message I got from a former FB employee on the co's new general counsel: "How fucking perfect. The platform — with its tentacles in every last aspect of people's lives — is now receiving legal counsel by the woman who authored much of the Patriot Act."

“When I first ran for the Senate, I would see little girls in the crowd. And I’d get down on one knee like a teacher and say, ‘Hello. I’m Elizabeth and I’m running for Senate - because that’s what girls do.’” #WarrenTownHall

I woke up this morning, and my Havanese Rocket had been given a bath. 

I asked Frank why and he said, “You REALLY don’t want to know.” He was right. I really did not want to know.

New post: "Elizabeth Warren's plan to cancel student loan debt would be a slap in the face to all those who struggled to pay off their loans" https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/opinion/elizabeth-warrens-plan-to-cancel-student-loan-debt-would-be-a-slap-in-the-face-to-all-those-who-struggled-to-pay-off-their-loans …

I paid back my student loans while working minimium wage at Gamestop. And amazingly, I don’t want other people to suffer like I did. “I was abused by this system so you should be too,” is a terrible argument.

Also want to share a link to a job posting for an "administrator" position on the new Stardew Valley team I'm in the process of forming: https://www.stardewvalley.net/administrator_needed/ … please check it out if you're interested!

This job listing has been mocked in gamedev circles all weekend. Smash hit Stardew Valley needs a web developer, production manager and community manager. But, rather than pay three people - they want to hire one and work them to death. The game industry needs to unionize.

Worth noting, without the fearless journalism of @backlon, @JoannaStern, @stevekovach, @markgurman and others, Samsung would have released a $2000 device that easily broke. Thank you for your integrity.

Judi at the Wallingford @StopandShop is overwhelmed with emotion at returning to work this morning. But she wanted customers to know: "The only thing that has kept us going is our customers." We are so happy to be back at work today and we wouldn't be here without you!

We’re so glad to support all of you! And know, myself and the entirety of New England will have your back if they try this again. Fair wages for fair work! #UnionStrong
