The Information Commissioner tells me at the Commons Digital & Culture Committee that when the Conservative Party racially profiled 10 million voters, that was illegal. @CommonsDCMS

So Elizabeth Denham states to @MrJohnNicolson that collating 10 million ethnic profiles by @Conservatives was illegal, but she then asks:

“what did our report say?”

Well: it *did not say* and *did not explain the boundaries*. That was the problem.

Testimony from Elizabeth Denham of the @ICOnews to the @CommonsDCMS as it relates to the investigation of Cambridge Analytica | A THREAD ⬇️

First up, Ms. Denham says the Senate Intelligence Committee did not contact the ICO despite the SSCI in the their report saying they did.

This really is very odd indeed

Denham fails to specify what changed between April 2019 and October 2020 for there not to be a final report issued. Over 700 TB of information analyzed and the @ICOnews chose not to issue a final report on an almost 2 year investigation. @carolecadwalla @jason_kint @EmmaLBriant

A LOT going on this morning. Here’s UK Information Commissioner Elizabeth Denham revealing details of legal settlement with Facebook in its Cambridge Analytica investigation cannot be put into the public domain. Would very much like to hear from @nick_clegg why this is so

"You'll be a disruptor and an innovator who approaches the news in a provocative and entertaining way".

That's not what news is. But it is the Boris Johnson school of journalism, which has caused utter destruction to this country 👇

We don't need 'news' that is 'provocative' and 'entertaining' - we need journalism that informs, investigates, illuminates, educates, raises consciousness, holds power to account, and supports generative dialogue across partisan lines in the public interest

New and potentially cool:

Twitter is launching ‘Birdwatch,’ a Wikipedia-ish moderation forum to combat misinformation. I have some concerns about the safety of contributors, but it's got promise!

I have MANY concerns with Birdwatch.

Unlike Wikipedia, Twitter is not one cohesive community, and users are not dedicated to a common purpose of sharing knowledge.

Imagine the harassment and disinfo you already see in replies and QTs, but transposed to a “fact check” context!

EU regulation limits what banks can charge in transaction fees. Now that the UK is out, Mastercard plans on growing charges for British shoppers buying from EU companies.

Quoted @newtgingrich

Establishment politicians should think long and hard before turning President Trump into the American equivalent of Alexei Navalny. Navalny is Putin’s major opponent-jailed, harassed, imprisoned, poisoned. Turning President Trump into a martyr will deepen political conflict.

Trump tried to steal a fair election, Navalny wants to have one. Trump was impeached for inciting violence, Navalny was poisoned and arrested by a dictatorship. The only thing they have in common is that they both deserve justice.

The @navalny protests in 🇷🇺 today are undoubtedly the largest since the Bolotnaya protests in 2011-2021. Numbers are difficult to compare, but these now seem to be far more spread all over the country. It’s no longer just Moscow.
