After Jack Hack, Government Starts Taking Wireless 'SIM Hijacking' Seriously (techdirt)

Wireless carriers have been under fire for failing to protect their users from the practice of SIM hijacking. The practice involves posing as a wireless customer, then fooling a wireless carrier to port the victim's cell phone number right out from underneath them, letting the attacker then pose as the customer to potentially devastating effect. Back in February, a man sued T-Mobile for failing to protect his account after a hacker, pretending to be him, ported out his phone number, then managed...

Facebook and Twitter say they will allow candidates to pay them to be able to lie about opponents

Ellen DeGeneres is trying to block a video slamming her controversial friendship with George W. Bush but it's gone viral

Ellen DeGeneres defended her friendship with former president George W. Bush in a speech on her show on Tuesday. Activist Rafael Shimunov produced a video satirizing the speech by projecting images of the Iraq War behind DeGeneres. The next day Shimunov said Twitter had removed the video on copyright grounds — but other Twitter users have started re-uploading the video in response. It's an example of the Streisand Effect, in which attempting to censor something online can often end up making i...

Twitter admits it used two-factor phone numbers and emails for serving targeted ads

Twitter has said it used phone numbers and email addresses, provided by users to set up two-factor authentication on their accounts, to serve targeted ads. In Tuesday, the social media giant said it did not know how many users were impacted. The issue stemmed from the company’s tailored audiences program, which allows companies to target advertisements against their own marketing lists, such as phone numbers and email addresses. But Twitter found that when advertisers uploaded their marketi...

Ellen Pao calls out Twitter’s ‘public town square’ model as flawed

Project Include CEO Ellen Pao, who has been working to foster diversity, inclusion and ethics in the tech industry, called out Twitter’s “public square” model as flawed — and a decision that indicates a lack of ethical consideration, on Twitter’s part. The topic of Twitter came up on a panel at TechCrunch Disrupt SF 2019 this morning, when Pao was asked her opinion as to whether Twitter should make exceptions to its platform rules for public figures — like President Trump, for example.

Twitter cofounder and former CEO Ev Williams said Twitter would have prioritized removing abusive content had the leadership team been more diverse.  Williams founded the company with three other white men, including current CEO Jack Dorsey.  Multiple studies have found greater team diversity leads to more better performance and more sound decisions.

Opinion: The good life has changed

Not too long ago, the rich and famous sought sleek cars, extravagant hotel rooms, and private jets. But for modern moguls like Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey, luxury no longer means swilling martinis and feasting on expensive steaks. By his definition, the lavish lifestyle involves regular fasting and ice baths. The meaning of living wealthy now prioritizes living healthy, and high-end products have been replaced by more experiential spoils. Fitness, mental resilience, togetherness—these are the new...

Trump Wants Your Social Media Gripes — And Zip Code, Email And Phone Number

The White House on Wednesday asked social media users to submit their tales of suspected political bias by platforms like Facebook, Twitter and others.
