Word of the week: Cow

Last week’s headlines were full of bovine references. I’m not talking about the usual bull: This was all about a fake cow with hundreds of thousands of (presumably) real Twitter followers—a cowfluencer, you might say—that’s being sued by a sitting U.S. congressman. The cow in question (1,200 followers on March 18, 634,000 followers on March 24):   The congressman (404,000 followers):   Yes, Devin Nunes of California’s Central Valley, the ranking Republican on the House Intellige...

Can We Build Ethics Into Automated Decision-Making?

"Machines will need to make ethical decisions, and we will be responsible for those decisions," argues Mike Loukides, O'Reilly Media's vice president of content strategy: We are surrounded by systems that make ethical decisions: systems approving loans, trading stocks, forwarding news articles, recommending jail sentences, and much more. They act for us or against us, but almost always without our consent or even our knowledge. In recent articles, I've suggested the ethics of artificial intellig...

Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall become first royals to visit in Cuba in 60 years

They have already been accused of playing into the Communist regime’s propaganda machine with their royal visit to Cuba. Now there is a chance Prince Charles and the Duchess of Cornwall may come face to face with Fidel Castro's brother Raúl after royal aides refused to rule out a surprise appearance by the revolutionary during their controversial tour of the socialist state. Although there are no official plans for the royal couple to meet Castro, who is First Secretary of Cuba’s Communist P...

The ethics of internet culture: a conversation with Taylor Lorenz

Taylor Lorenz was in high demand this week. As a prolific journalist at The Atlantic and about-to-be member of Harvard’s prestigious Nieman Fellowship for journalism, that’s perhaps not surprising. Nor was this the first time she’s had a bit of a moment: Lorenz has already served as an in-house expert on social media and the internet for several major companies, while having written and edited for publications as diverse as The Daily Beast, The Hill, People, The Daily Mail, and Business Insider,...

Elon Musk Is Still Fighting the SEC in Court Over His Bad Tweets

Pacquiao polls Twitter on who to fight next

Philippine boxing legend Manny Pacquiao took to social media to poll millions of fans on who they think should be his next opponent, having brushed off calls to hang up his gloves after turning 40.

The poll, also linked to Pacquiao's Facebook wall, has 18 more hours...

Twitter as an Engagement Medium for State Bar Associations

Twitter, by definition, is an online news and social networking service on which users post and interact with messages known as tweets.  In just twelve years, Twitter has changed journalism, business, politics and social networking in ways we could never have never predicted — mostly in a very positive way. Every state bar association, except one, is using Twitter. Many bars make their Twitter communications prominent on the front page of their website. Most invite people to follow t...

Elon Musk defends tweets in SEC’s contempt proceedings

Tesla CEO Elon Musk argued Friday that his Twitter use did not violate a settlement agreement with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission and that the agency’s request to have him held in contempt is based on a “radical interpretation” of the order, according to court papers filed in Manhattan federal court. The SEC has asked a judge to hold Musk in contempt for violating a settlement agreement reached last year over Musk’s now infamous “funding secured” tweet. Under that agreement, Musk...

In 2010 Nunes Defended Protesters’ Right To ‘Smear,’ ‘Say What They Want’

Back in March 2010, Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) was an ardent supporter of the rights of those who wish to “smear” or “say what they want” to lawmakers they disagree with. But in the age of Twitter, when lawmakers can be mocked via fake “cow” accounts, the former chairman of the House Intelligence Committee has grown a bit sensitive. During an interview with C-SPAN in 2010, right around the time House Democrats were gunning to gather enough votes for their proposal to overhaul health care — a mov...

Tenth Lawsuit Against Social Media Providers for “Materially Supporting Terrorists” Fails–Sinclair v. Twitter

This is the 10th different case where a judge has rejected allegations that Twitter and other social media services materially support terrorists. As with most of the others, the plaintiffs’ lawyers are Excolo Law and 1-800 LAWFIRM. I’ve blogged the other nine dismissals, so at this point, there’s not much new to say about this case. Most of the plaintiffs’ arguments have been rejected in prior cases, and the plaintiffs’ lawyers are building a thick wall of adverse precedent that has become near...

Why newsletters are the best form of social media: “You don’t have to fight an algorithm to reach your audience”

In The New York Times, Mike Isaac explains why newsletters are a better way of communicating than Facebook and Twitter. For me, the change has happened slowly but the reasons for it were unmistakable. Every time I was on Twitter, I felt worse. I worried about being too connected to my phone, too wrapped up in the latest Twitter dunks. A colleague created his own digital detox program to reduce his smartphone addiction. I reckon he made the right choice. Now, when I feel the urge to tweet an idea...

Dershowitz Issues Blunt Rebuke Of Nunes Suit: ‘He Has No Case At All’

Trump cheerleader Alan Dershowitz is not siding with the President or Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA), one of Trump’s staunchest allies, over the congressman’s lawsuit against Twitter and parody accounts that was filed Monday. During an interview with Fox News on Wednesday, the Harvard professor said Nunes has “no case at all,” neither on the grounds of Twitter’s alleged discrimination nor defamation. “No, he has no case at all and it is wrong from a political and ideological point of view.  If you d...

Nunes Lawsuit Backfires: ‘Cow’ Account Soars To 300K Followers Overnight

Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) stepped in it. After filing a lawsuit against a fake Twitter account — which is named after his “cow” and posts farm-related insults about Nunes, like calling him “udderly useless” — to spotlight Twitter’s bias against conservatives, the account’s followers soared. Before the suit was filed on Monday evening, the account, “@DevinCow,” had 1,200 followers. As of Wednesday morning, “Devin Nunes’ cow” had more than 360,000 followers, including journalists like Jennifer Ru...

Sponsor of the "Discouraging Frivolous Lawsuits Act" sues Twitter cow-account for $250 million

Devin Nunes (previously) is a Trump-loyalist whose scandals have ranged from secretly moving his family farm to make it easier to hire undocumented workers to a bizarre obsession with the Steele Dossier; and like a lot of far-right types, he's big on "preventing frivolous lawsuits" (which is to say, he wants to make it harder for the public to sue companies that harm them, which is why he cosponsored last year's Discouraging Frivolous Lawsuits Act. Another trait Nunes shares with a lot of f...
