NEW: Google has settled its shareholder lawsuit. It includes $310 million for diversity workplace initiatives, reforms to board procedures and updated workplace policies https://t.co/ut6TM1ZuTI

Having dug into this more, kids only show up in other kids' contact lists if their parents turn on a separate setting. But that affects kids who don't turn in on too, since FB is by default disclosing if you're friends with kids with the new setting on. https://t.co/u1NbZOvDzG

the consent part of this is a big fat red herring. "but that affects kids who don't turn it on too.." is the key here. thanks @JustinBrookman https://t.co/7m8gpUlKzt

1/ INCREDIBLE STUDY: 615 adults in Tokyo were prospectively recruited to take Sars-Cov-2 antibody tests. When the study began 6% had antibodies, indicating exposure. By mid-summer 47% did. Half the population. Not one person was hospitalized or died... https://t.co/XVoJfjEcrv

This is making the usual misinformation rounds. But it's not Tokyo. It's not a random serosurvey. It's a few locations in a single company. One cluster could explain it all. If this were true for Tokyo, it could & should be replicated quickly. But misinformation thrives on speed. https://t.co/xraXcMgoCJ

👇🏽 One of the many new restrictions on internal expression at FB. Employees can still use a limited number of photo frames (including one that says Black Lives Matter) but their profile photos have to be of themselves or their initials. https://t.co/7rGurUaLzA https://t.co/0Md90doeQ2

She had PTSD, lost 15 percent body weight. Threatened repeatedly by White Nationalists. She complained to Facebook and other social media platforms hundreds of times and never heard back from them.

Former Facebook Director of Monetization Tim Kendall: "To do this, we didn’t simply create something useful and fun. We took a page from Big Tobacco’s playbook, working to make our offering addictive at the outset." https://t.co/PnElByMyTT https://t.co/dfCnCsDbsq

Meanwhile, a former Facebook employee is testifying in a House haring at this very moment about how the company took a page from Big Tobacco to make the product more addictive. Tim Kendall testimony: https://t.co/9237p538e5

By the way, everyone paying attention knew this bait-and-switch was going to happen. What's wrong with you @Facebook? Just leave children alone.
