We are 9 months into the pandemic and I just got this alert from the US State Department that anyone traveling to the US has to show a negative Covid test.
This is a measure other countries adopted what, 6 months ago?? https://t.co/bLq7kJgwN2

True sentence: The pillow tycoon urged The Apprentice host to fire the CIA director.

That moment where you are caught between deleting Twitter and just not giving them the satisfaction.

Apparently Facebook cares about violence in the U.S. but what about India, Myanmar and Ethiopia, human rights groups say. via @satariano https://t.co/UB3asvgBRV

@GavinNewsom worth noting that Pharmacies are saying today they got direct orders from your office to start cancelling appointments of people 65+. This contradicts your own tweets.

Just total chaos/confusion down in LA over whether people 65+ can get the vaccine. People have been spending hours refreshing pages to make appointments, only to be told afterwards that the pharmacies aren’t even sure who they are authorized to give Covid vaccines to. Madness.

In QAnon world influencers have been pushing a message to not attend any rallies or protests on the 17 or 20 as there are all false flag events set up by the Deep State/Antifa/BLM government to perform mass arrests of patriots. Not attending is a widely accepted narrative.

NEW from me: On December 8, a foreign account sent multiple prominent rightwing figures a large Bitcoin donation. Funding, including from overseas, a subject of interest to U.S. law enforcement post U.S. Capitol riot: https://t.co/XpqdcaHmee

"Easy Spanking" doesn't like my voice. 
( I normally don't call this type of thing out, but I am so tired of women being told that their voices aren't fit for public consumption). https://t.co/nJpMT6CoXz

the perfect storm of fears around big tech + a disastrous privacy update from WhatsApp has sent signal and Telegram downloads skyrocketing. w/ @jacknicas & @sheeraf https://t.co/6GHWl2Rcwp

Just a totally normal stew of factors: 1) Anxiety over a bungled WhatsApp privacy policy; 2) the Capitol mobbing spurring a search for secure apps; and 3) Elon Musk. https://t.co/jS1Dsl46Hm

Waiting for the QAnon crowd to jump and claim that 1) Trump has been drugged/compromised or 2) It is a body double.

As we were finishing edits on our story, I got an update letting me know that my dentist was now on Signal. Here's why it seems like everyone you know just joined Signal and Telegram. https://t.co/k28hLkqnGH

A perfect storm of fears around Big Tech and rumors about Whatsapp's new update has led to millions of people downloading encrypted apps like Telegram and Signal. Story with @jacknicas and @MikeIsaac https://t.co/k28hLkqnGH

Lol. We bought this rug for our living room 2 years ago after our then-baby spilled juice on our real Moroccan Berber rug. (Was only $60 back then!) Proof that kids will force you into mom normcore. https://t.co/VjagnwBCiB

Spoke to the Daily today about how militias and other far-right groups are moving to new encrypted platforms to plan their next steps after Jan. 6. https://t.co/4a8NjK9r5X
