Back in December of 2022, I wrote that Twitter, after being purchased by Elon Musk, was inviting me back on to their platform with our Health Impact News account that we used for years, but that not only were we NOT going to reinstate our account on Twitter, but that we were deleting ALL of our accounts on Social Media, except for our video platforms that allow us to turn off comments. See:
Health Impact News received notice this week that our Twitter account has been reinstated.
However, we will not be logging into this account and using it, and in addition, we have now deleted our other social media accounts and will no longer post any articles on Social Media.
We will maintain our video accounts and Telegram channel, where we can turn off comments.
This ends over 2 decades of social media use for myself and my companies, as I started utilizing the Internet and Internet discussion groups back in 2000 and 2001, after we saw that the Internet survived Y2K.
In the early days, the Internet and social media groups were a tremendous asset to truth seekers, allowing us to bypass corporate media censorship and take our message directly to the people.
We were utilizing social media before Facebook and Twitter were even around, and even before Google was selling search result advertising through “pay-per-click” (PPC).
When Facebook became popular, we established our brand and spent a lot of money promoting our Facebook Page for my online business, and then also started a Facebook Page for Health Impact News when we started back in 2011.
Before Facebook banned us, we had 2 million followers we had collected over almost a decade. Facebook became the best place to advertise our products also, as we could tailor our ads to very specific people who met the profile of our consumers. They quickly became the best platform on the Internet for advertising, because people so willingly published information about themselves and their interests.
But what became a great tool for businesses advertising their products, also became a great tool for intelligence agencies like the CIA, FBI, and others. These social media giants became not only resources to surveil and track people, but also to influence what they think and believe by using fake users, which we called “trolls.”
At one point, it was estimated that over half the user accounts on Facebook were fake users, and Twitter also had a large percentage of these fake users which Elon Musk complained about before he bought it.
In 2014 I published an article commenting on an article written by Glenn Greenwald based on Edward Snowden’s leaked documents from the National Security Agency (NSA) which showed that British and American intelligence agencies were paying “trolls” to influence opinion online and destroy people’s reputations. (Read the full article.)
Ever since Elon Musk purchased Twitter, I have been warning people that Musk bought Twitter to develop an “everything app” similar to China’s WeChat app, which is the main app China uses to combine social media, digital identity, vaccination and medical status, criminal history, tracking and surveillance, digital currency, shopping, carbon footprint, and other digital information which can then be used to determine one’s “social credit score.”
Musk kicked his plans to develop Twitter as a tool for evil into high gear recently by rebranding Twitter into “X”. See:
In the comments section of that article, one reader posted a link to a .pdf file he created with his interpretation of how “X” is tied into the occult, and its Satanic meanings.
Today, August 18, 2023, it is being reported that Elon Musk and his “X” platform is about to roll out biometric IDs as a requirement to log in to one’s account, that will require a government-issued ID, along with a “selfie” picture of one’s face.
Au10tix selfie biometrics for identity verification coming to X
X, the social media platform formerly known as Twitter, is rumored to have introduced a new selfie biometrics and ID document verification process, according to app researcher Nima Owji (@nima_owji).
Owji notes via screenshots that the new identity verification process will require users to take a selfie and photograph a government-issued ID. These images will be sent to third-party service Au10tix, which will handle face biometrics matching. It is reported that X will store these images for a maximum of 30 days.
This move follows the platform’s recent efforts to increase user accountability and foster a more trustworthy and secure online environment and is inevitable, given the platform’s “super app” ambitions. Critics are raising concerns about potential privacy issues associated with storing sensitive personal information. (Full article.)
Another announcement regarding Twitter/X in my newsfeed today, is a Tweet from Elon Musk that he is planning on eliminating the ability to block people on your Twitter/X account.
This will give free reign to trolls and SPAMers, and give free access to the Intelligence Agencies to dispatch their paid trolls to discredit anything you write that does not fit the Globalist narrative.
Musk says X’s ‘block’ feature is going away
“Block is going to be deleted as a ‘feature’, except for DMs,” Elon Musk wrote. “Makes no sense.” The post was a response to a Tesla fan account who asked whether there was any reason to use block instead of mute.
Regarded as a safety feature by many users, the suggestion that block could be going the way of the service’s old verification system was greeted with backlash from concerned users.
“Twitter gives people a variety of tools to control their experience, including blocking,” the company writes on its help page. “Blocking helps people in restricting specific accounts from contacting them, seeing their Tweets, and following them. If you have been blocked by another account on Twitter, you can still block other accounts (including any that have blocked you).”
While Mute may still remain, the features are not the same. Block restricts fellow users from interacting with, viewing and following an account. Mute simply hides your posts from their stream. Users are not made aware that they have been muted. Musk adds that the block feature will remain for direct messages. (Full article.)
Many publishers in the Alternative Media have foolishly flocked back to Twitter/X and have even hailed Musk as a “hero” supporting “free speech.”
Nothing could be further from the truth.
Twitter’s track record of complying with government demands to turn over data on Twitter users has actually INCREASED dramatically since Elon Musk took over Twitter.
Twitter is complying with more government demands under Elon Musk
It’s been exactly six months since Elon Musk took over Twitter, promising a new era of free speech and independence from political bias. But Twitter’s self-reported data shows that, under Musk, the company has complied with hundreds more government orders for censorship or surveillance — especially in countries such as Turkey and India.
The data, drawn from Twitter’s reports to the Lumen database, shows that between October 27, 2022 and April 26, 2023, Twitter received a total of 971 requests from governments and courts. These requests included orders to remove controversial posts, as well as demands that Twitter produce private data to identify anonymous accounts.
Twitter reported that it fully complied in 808 of those requests, and partially complied in 154 other cases.
Most alarmingly, Twitter’s self-reports do not show a single request in which the company refused to comply, as it had done several times before the Musk takeover. Twitter rejected three such requests in the six months before Musk’s takeover, and five in the six months prior to that.
More broadly, the figures show a steep increase in the portion of requests that Twitter complies with in full. In the year before Musk’s acquisition, the figure had hovered around 50%, in line with the compliance rate reported in the company’s final transparency report.
After Musk’s takeover, the number jumps to 83% (808 requests out of a total of 971). (Full article.)
EVERYTHING you put on Twitter/X is collected, analyzed, and stored in a database in the Cloud where you are categorized and your data is stored, where the new AI Large Language Models can now collate your information and put you onto lists and into categories that the government and the Globalists have access to.
And soon, they will have copies of your biometric data as well, such as scans of your face, allowing them to identify you in public and track almost everything you do, if you continue to use apps like this.
What comes next?
Unless there is major pushback by the public, what comes next are mandates to use X to participate in society and do things like, you know, use an ATM and get money out of your bank account, and many other things that people in a (semi)free society used to do.
Apple is one of the largest publicly traded companies in the world whose sales are starting to slump, so get ready for the Government to subsidize FREE Apple cell phones to those who cannot afford them, allowing them to then collect their social security checks, food stamps, and use medicare along with many other government services, by using apps such as Elon Musk’s X.
Welcome to the new BEAST market where you need to display your “mark” to participate in society.
