Imagine killing an aid worker. Imagine killing his family too. Imagine seven of them were actually children, smiling little tots.

Then just rising from your chair to grab a coffee and saying, "mistakes were made."

This is absolutely unforgivable. t.co/GAP397szbe

UK tabloid reports on #chatcontrol 2: "The EU Commission is pushing to oblige all providers – such as #WhatsApp, #Skype and #Signal – to scan private chats. If an image sent privately pings an automated system as being suspect, the chat provider will send it to investigators."

One of the best articles I've read so far on FB's #metaverse: "Facebook can claim originality in at least one thing. Its combination of scale and irresponsibility has unleashed a set of diverse and fascinating sociopolitical challenges that it will take lawmakers, scholars, and activists at least a generation to fix."
