Yesterday, our team published an investigation into Women for America First and their cross-country disinformation tour leading up to Jan. 6. We watched 20+ hours of video to find out what they were telling people. Here's a thread what we found👇 https://t.co/0EGN83wQne

Madison Cawthorn was on Fox & Friends First for an interview this morning. He was never asked about the multiple sexual harassment allegations made against him, but he was given an opportunity to rail against the purported cancelation of Dr. Seuss. https://t.co/fC0XpVj8Lg

After checking that @sensityai doesn’t identify the face swap on this #deepfake @JaneLytv makes an interesting point: trust your gut. It does feel off. But is it because I know it’s fake? Showing to ppl who don’t know and ask for feedback may be a way to test this hypothesis. https://t.co/Wd0CxXomqo

About the ‘Tom’ account on TikTok: https://t.co/yav7t1hOS6 There are three deep fake videos available currently. The account is linked to @milesfisher who acted in one known TC deep fake: https://t.co/SgEzpYB03o Fisher’s LinkTree also points to TikTok https://t.co/lZP90cuuqa

One more thing: When I talk about Deepfakes, I tell people to pay attention to the gut feeling that something's off in a video. You might not be able to point out why you feel unsettled but you kinda just do. That's a good time to pause, assess the vid, and look for more clues.

And, crucially, this is a one-off. Deepfakes are vastly used for targeted harassment of women. Full stop. If you want to be creeped out by this technology, be creeped out by how it's already being used. More from Sam here: https://t.co/VXJHY6kDMc

New op-ed in @WIRED: increasing conspiratorial thinking on videos ("it's a #Deepfake', it's manipulated) compromises critical truthful videos showing realities in countries like #Myanmar. We need different responses to engage with video/photo manipulation. https://t.co/LypU4xHpD8

All of that of course involves knowing that we're looking at a deepfake in the first place. It's creepy and unsettling but it's also important to echo some good points here. As Max points out, this would have been *a lot* of work. https://t.co/UNHh8I3UgQ

My take on the Tom Cruse Deepfake is that it's misleading in illustrating the danger of AI in the same way GPT-3 hype is: the results from both require heavy curation/tweaking/production values that are not representative of typical use of the technology to get the viral results.

These videos are very, very convincing and I'd love to understand what's going on here. Those who are smugly calling them bad are wrong. For verification, a few things we could try: - find the location where this could have been shot - look into acct - contact Cruz reps

Those Tom Cruise deepfakes on TikTok are deeply unsettling. Let's run them through @sensityai's new deepfake detector tool to see how they do 👇
