In the latest privacy blunder for the Big Tech platform, Facebook announced it discovered a bug in September that allowed the photos of up to 6.8 millions of users to be collected by third party app developers.
In its blog post, Facebook explains that third party app developers are typically allowed to collect photos users choose to upload publicly to their Facebook timeline. The bug gave third party developers access to private images users may have uploaded then chose not to post publicly, and images posted to Facebook Marketplace and Facebook Stories.
Facebook explains that as many as 6.8 million users may have had their private photos collected by as many as 1,500 third party apps built by 871 developers.
The company has been roiled by numerous privacy scandals throughout 2018, starting in April with the now infamous Cambridge Analytica data leak, in which the personal information of 87 million users was collected and traded by the research company, and potentially used to impact the 2016 presidential election.
Facebook experienced another privacy scandal only months later in September, when attackers managed to make off with private information of another 50 million users, and used security flaws to gain access to Instagram, Spotify, and other Facebook properties.
Facebook is recommending users review which apps have access to their photos and consider revoking the permission, and plans to give those users who may have had their photos collected a notification which will encourage them to review which apps have permission to collect photos and consider revoking it.
Twitter Blames Nonexistent White Nationalist Group for ANTIFA’s Role in Fomenting Riots
They are trying to disavow their role in allowing ANTIFA terrorists on their platform.
Social media giant Twitter has resorted to blaming a white nationalist group that no longer exists for fomenting riots that have resulted in death and destruction throughout the country.
One Twitter account, @ANTIFA_US, was lampooning the anti-American terrorist group with various posts mocking their extremist stances. They had written that the terrorist group was planning to “move into the residential areas” and “take what’s ours.”
Twitter, which has been known to harbor hate speech from ANTIFA domestic terrorists for many years, is blaming the defunct Identity Evropa (IE) group for the parody account that has since been removed from the platform. IE was officially disbanded in March 2019.
The American Identity Movement (AIM), a group that was founded to disavow the controversial history of IE, released a statement to address the phony reports running cover for ANTIFA terrorists.
“The unsubstantiated assertion was made without citing any alleged evidence upon which Twitter based such a dubious and inflammatory statement. No effort was made by Twitter to verify its contentions. The issuance of such an unlikely claim without any effort to verify it would be the height of irresponsibility even in normal times,” AIM wrote.
“There appears to be an organized effort by partisan politicians, advocacy journalists, and left-wing activists to shield the rioters who have shaken the nation from coast to coast in recent days by pushing a kooky conspiracy theory that “white supremacists” have infiltrated the rioters and are the “real” source of the arsons and attacks on policemen,” they continued.
“Neither Identity Evropa nor American Identity Movement have advocated, incited, or participated in violence or the fabrication of Antifa Twitter accounts. In addition to moral objections to such behavior, there would be no point in concocting such tweets when social media is replete with Antifa approval, incitement to and participation in such actions,” AIM added.
Journalist Laura Loomer has noted that Twitter has a long history of providing a platform for ANTIFA terrorists and has even called for Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey to be locked up for aiding and abetting and abetting the terror group:
Congressional candidate and banished journalist Laura Loomer is calling for Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey to be arrested because of his association with the ANTIFA domestic terrorist group.
“After censoring President Donald Trump’s tweets about violent riots, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey put #BlackLivesMatter as the header on the official Twitter Twitter account,” Loomer wrote in a post on the social media platform Parler.
Loomer noted that Dorsey has allowed his platform to be used by ANTIFA members despite the fact that they have egregiously flouted their terms of service by organizing terrorist violence and targeted harassment campaigns. At the same time, Twitter has punished conservative leaders like Loomer with lifetime bans for merely expressing their own opinions in a non-violent manner.
“Jack Dorsey is aiding and abetting terrorist organizations by allowing for ANTIFA terrorists and Islamic terrorists to have access where they are promoting anarchy and lethal riots,” she wrote.
“In the middle of a national emergency, he is also censoring the commander in chief who is posting about the army and national guard responding to the riots,” she added.
Loomer believes that there is a case for Dorsey to be tried with treason for his actions, and the feds should set their sights on him for enabling some of the worst rioting in U.S. history.
“For this, Jack Dorsey should immediately have his home raided by the feds Roger Stone style and be charged with inciting acts of domestic terrorism in America,” she wrote.
“It’s time for Jack Dorsey to be prosecuted for aiding and abetting terrorists and committing TREASON. #LockHimUp,” she added.
Twitter is desperately trying to cover for ANTIFA’s role in the riots so their association with this terrorist organization is not fully understood by the greater public.
