#WeinerGate, Bevacqua, Facebook and Twitter


A POSSIBLE EXPLANATION FOR WEINERGATE?

Questions arise after a look at a politician's "tweetstream" ... Michelle Malkin has finally jumped into the #WeinerGate debate, offering a package of links and VIDEO!

Michelle has an idea as to what may have actually happened: "As a dedicated Twitter user myself, the most likely scenario is that Weiner himself mistakenly DM’ed (direct-messaged) the “prank” photo to the young woman in Seattle and intended it to be private. It takes just one wrong keystroke for a private DM to appear in one’s public timeline." We'll wait and see, I guess!

Onto other things:::

RIP Jonas Bevacqua

Your personal internet experience ::: are you being cheated by Facebook, Google, etc.?

Here's a snippet, in case you find yourself blocked by one of those "pay walls" ---

Eli Pariser, the author of “The Filter Bubble: What the Internet Is Hiding From You.” Personalization on the Web, he says, is becoming so pervasive that we may not even know what we’re missing: the views and voices that challenge our own thinking.

You know I limit the number of people I follow on twitter to 300. Look at what follows below: Should I think about cutting that number in half? Anyone? Aldon? Larry?

Speaking of Larry B, he's posted 18 articles targeted at LinkedIn users, which "explore a wide range of viewpoints, and they will hopefully help you to formulate and implement your LinkedIn plan".

  1. WASHINGTON (AP) _ NEW YORK CONGRESSMAN ANTHONY WEINER (WEE'-NUR)
    IS DENYING THAT HE SENT A LEWD PHOTO FROM HIS TWITTER ACCOUNT TO A
    21-YEAR-OLD WOMAN.
    BUT HE ALSO SAYS HE ``CAN'T SAY WITH CERTITUDE'' THAT HE'S NOT
    THE PERSON SEEN IN THE PHOTO OF A MAN'S BULGING UNDERPANTS.
    THE DEMOCRAT TELLS MSNBC THAT HE DIDN'T SEND THE PHOTO, AND THAT
    IT WAS THE WORK OF A HACKER.
    WEINER YESTERDAY ANGRILY REFUSED TO ANSWER REPORTERS' QUESTIONS
    ABOUT THE INCIDENT. TODAY, HE'S BEEN GRANTING INTERVIEWS, IN HOPES
    OF PUTTING THE MATTER TO REST.
    WEINER SAYS HE HAS HIRED AN ATTORNEY, AS WELL AS A PRIVATE
    SECURITY COMPANY TO FIND OUT HOW SOMEONE COULD PULL OFF SUCH A
    PRANK.
    THE PHOTO WAS POSTED ON FRIDAY AND SENT TO A FEMALE COLLEGE
    STUDENT IN SEATTLE. IT WAS QUICKLY DELETED.
    WEINER WAS A TWITTER FOLLOWER OF THE COLLEGE STUDENT.
    THE TWEET OF THE LEWD PHOTO FIRST WAS REPORTED SATURDAY BY A
    WEBSITE RUN BY CONSERVATIVE COMMENTATOR ANDREW BREITBART.

COMMENTING CHARGES
Per comment rate: $2
Payable by either clicking the BitCoin "tip me" button or the PayPal "donate" button in the sidebar.

WAIT, WHY DO I HAVE TO PAY TO COMMENT?
Because, like the fine publication Tablet, whom I borrowed this concept from, I too am committed to bringing you the best, smartest, most enlightening and entertaining reporting and writing I'm able to provide, all free of charge. I take pride in my loyal readership, and I'm thrilled that you choose to engage with me in a way that is both thoughtful and thought-provoking. But the Internet, for all of its wonders, poses challenges to civilized and constructive discussion, allowing vocal—and, often, anonymous—minorities to drag it down with invective (and worse).

I'm asking people who'd like to post comments on my blog to pay a nominal fee—less a paywall than a gesture of your own commitment to the cause of great conversation. All proceeds go to helping me bring you the provocative and/or entertaining articles that brought you here in the first place.

I NEED TO BE HEARD! BUT I DONT WANT TO PAY.
Readers can still interact with me FREE of charge via Facebook comments and Google+ comments! You can also reach me via Twitter @davelucas

I hope this new largely symbolic measure will help create a more pleasant and cultivated environment for all! Those of you who choose to contribute, thanks for your support.
