On Mondy, James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas released a third undercover video exposing the social media site Twitter. In the latest video, Twitter engineers boast about how the company views all of its users’ private messages and analyzes them to create a “virtual profile” which is then sold to advertisers.
Moreover, the video indicates that “hundreds” of employees were allegedly hired to read private messages, many of which apparently include those of a sexual nature.
According to Project Veritas, the video features four current Twitter software engineers -–Conrado Miranda, Clay Haynes, Pranay Singh, and Mihai Alexandru Florea.
Haynes, an engineer who was featured in part one of the Twitter exposé, admitted in a January 6, 2018 meeting that Twitter has hired hundreds of employees with the express purpose of looking at “d*ck pics,” stating:
“There’s teams dedicated to it. I mean, we’re talking, we’re talking three or four… at least, three or four hundred people… Yes, they’re paid to look at d*ck pics.”
Haynes said that even he has seen these pictures:
“I’ve seen way more penises than I’ve ever wanted to see in my life.”
“That’s, yeah… You know, actually… This sounds horrible, but I’m actually glad and fortunate it’s just d*cks, it’s just bl*w job pictures, it’s just that type of stuff.”
Pranay Singh, a Direct Messaging Engineer, bragged that “everything you send is stored on my server… So all your sex messages and you, like, d*ck pics are on my server now…
“All your illegitimate wives and, like, all the girls you’ve been f*cking around with, they’re are on my server now… I’m going to send it to your wife, she’s going use it in your divorce.
“So, what happens is like, you like, write something or post pictures on line, they never go away… Because even after you send them, people are like analyzing them, to see what you are interested in, to see what you are talking about. And they sell that data.”
Moreover, Miranda indicated that the company harvests data of visitors who aren’t Twitter users.
“You leak way more information than you think. Like, we have information from people -–Like, if you go to Twitter for the first time, we have information about you,” Miranda said.
Worse yet, Miranda said “there is no way” to protect people if that power falls into the wrong hands.
“It is a creepy Big Brother. It’s like a level… I don’t want to say it freaks me out, but it disturbs me,” Haynes said in a December meeting.
He was also asked if this information could leak from Twitter.
“Oh yeah, and it’s a genie out of the bottle kind of thing after that point. You know? Sure, I can fire them. Heck, I could probably even sue them, in some cases. But, the genie’s already out of the bottle. Like, how do actually recoup costs… you can’t calculate the cost or the damage of that,” he added.
Writing at Breitbart, Charlie Nash said Twitter’s attitude “may spur further calls for regulation in Silicon Valley.”
As we said here, Congress needs to take action — fast. Otherwise, the situation will get even wose than it already is.
