    New York (CNN Business)Elon Musk's legal team on Friday made public its official response to Twitter's lawsuit attempting to force him to complete their $44 billion acquisition deal. In the answer to Twitter's complaint, which includes counter-claims against the company, Musk's team attempts to refute the company's allegations that the Tesla CEO is unjustly trying to exit the deal. His team repeats allegations that Twitter has misstated the number of fake and spam bot accounts on its platform — a central charge Musk has made to justify terminating the acquisition agreement after originally citing a desire to "defeat the spam bots" as a reason for buying the company. Musk's response, which was filed publicly on Friday, states that the billionaire's team conducted an analysis of fake and spam accounts on the platform using data provided by Twitter's "firehose" of tweets and a public tool called Botometer created by researchers at the University of Indiana. It did not further detail the process of that evaluation and added that its analysis was "constrained" by a lack of time and information from Twitter....
    SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Twitter has filed a response to claims by billionaire Elon Musk that he has legitimate reasons for wanting to back out of his $44 billion deal to buy the social media company. In an unexpected twist, Twitter was able to file its response to Musk before Musk’s own counterclaims have been made public. A judge ruled on Wednesday that Musk’s counterclaim will be made public by Friday. In a reply filed Thursday in Delaware Chancery Court, Twitter calls Musk’s reasoning “a story, imagined in an effort to escape a merger agreement that Musk no longer found attractive once the stock market—and along with it, his massive personal wealth—declined in value.” “The Counterclaims are a made-for-litigation tale that is contradicted by the evidence and common sense,” Twitter’s response says. “Musk invents representations Twitter never made and then tries to wield, selectively, the extensive confidential data Twitter provided him to conjure a breach of those purported representations.” At the same time, the response says, Musk also accused Twitter of breaching their agreement by “stonewalling” his information requests....
    DOVER, Del. (AP) — Elon Musk’s answer to Twitter’s lawsuit over his attempt to back out of a $44 billion deal to buy the social media company will be made public by Friday evening at the latest, a judge ruled Wednesday. Attorneys for Musk wanted to file a public version of their answer and counterclaims in Delaware court Wednesday. But Twitter attorneys complained that they needed more time to review and potentially redact Musk’s sealed filing, saying it refers “extensively” to internal Twitter information and data given to Musk. Chancellor Kathaleen St. Jude McCormick held a quick teleconference Wednesday before agreeing with Twitter, directing that the public filing be docketed by 5 p.m. Friday. It could be filed earlier depending on when Twitter attorneys complete their review. Twitter attorneys argued that court rules require that five business days lapse before a public version of Musk’s filing is docketed. “Few cases attract as much public interest as this one, and Twitter is mindful of this court’s commitment to ensuring maximum public access to its proceedings,” Twitter attorney Kevin Shannon wrote. “Twitter...
    The Supreme Court is stocked with what many politely refer to as “conservative Christians.” The need to distinguish “conservative Christians” from standard Christians is not simply because many of them are Catholic, but because they all seem to follow a highly politicized, extremely ardent, and narrow version of Christianity. In fact, whether or not they believe that Jesus of Nazareth was the Christ and believing in him leads to the salvation of one’s soul is hard to know, since most of their decision-making seems to revolve around harming the majority of God’s creatures. The high court’s decision to roll back 50 years of reproductive rights using a clearly hypocritical and intellectually vacuous argument while also promoting gun violence, state violence, and abuse, and capping the session off by arguing that we are not stewards of the planet God gave us, has led to the hashtag #NotChristianity trending on Twitter. How does one square a decision to do away with clean air and the enforcement of better environmental conditions with Genesis 2:15? “The Lord God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to work it and keep it.” You do...
    Tom Williams/Getty Images Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) on Saturday denounced “the second guessing and finger pointing among state and local law enforcement” following the shooting at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, that left 19 children and two teachers dead. Cornyn argued that “complex scenarios require split second decisions” and that it is “easy to criticize with 20-20 hindsight.” The second guessing and finger pointing among state and local law enforcement is destructive, distracting, and unfair.

Focus now should be on through investigation and lessons learned to prevent future tragedies, not finger pointing.” The police response to the shooting has been widely criticized, as disturbing reports have emerged that police were scene for about an hour before the gunman was killed but decided not to enter the classroom where the suspect was located despite multiple calls to 911 from within the classroom while...

"'Algorithmic justice' is a lesson to all you activists and matchstick men that politicians will say whatever ridiculous shit you come up with. Can't be too far out. Just go nuts.

    Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) said at a Tuesday press conference that Florida is looking at potential action against Twitter, Inc. over the recent decision to use a “poison pill” play in an effort to prevent billionaire Elon Musk from taking over. The state’s pension fund, claimed DeSantis, is a Twitter investor. During a presser at The Villages, DeSantis was asked if he would “commit to completely divesting” the state’s Twitter shares over the company’s positions and policies. “If we did that, we would not have standing to hold the board of directors accountable,” he said. “It gives us standing to do it.” DeSantis said that as a matter of course his office does not get involved in the pension fund investments, but acknowledged that they do in some cases, such as with Ben & Jerry’s over the company’s BDS stance. DeSantis argued that if the board has lapsed in their financial responsibility, Florida as a shareholder has standing to object. “If the board is acting in ways that are breaching their fiduciary duty, if they’re doing it for reasons...
    A professor pulled the 'Don't you know who I am card?' to try and bully Marriott into banning Fox News from being played on a TV at a NYC hotel gym. Michael Mann, who leads the atmospheric science department at Penn State University, tried to shame the hospitality giant into changing the channel by bragging about his Twitter following. The pompous professor began his quest on Saturday, having spotted the offending channel being played while working out at the Marriott Times Square's fitness room. He took to Twitter and raged: '[email protected]: The Fitness center at your NYC Times Square hotel has TV fixed on “Fox News”— a network that promotes anti-American, pro-Russian propaganda. 'The manager of the facility says he can’t change the channel, it is set by you. This is deeply offensive.' Marriott initially ignored his screed and follow-up nags from Mann, prompting the egotistical academic to up the ante by boasting about his 206,400 followers. He sniped: 'Hi @MarriottBonvoy -- Don't want to pull rank, but I've got more followers than you. And the tweet now has 3k+...
    Rumors are flying regarding Aaron Rodgers’ new Instagram post and offensive lineman David Bakhtiari took to Twitter to share his thoughts on things.  The NFL world is officially on Aaron Rodgers watch.

    Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (AOC) has called for Facebook and other US firms to be 'broken up' for 'sabotaging' the global response to the Covid-19 pandemic for being complicit in spreading 'disinformation'. The Democratic Senator for New York also argued that the tech giant, which recently changed its name to Meta, should be subject to anti-trust action for its 'corrosive abuse of democracy' and role in 'contributing to and accelerating social violence'.  Facebook and other social media goliaths like Twitter have been criticized over the past 18 months for providing a platform to spread what some perceive as false information about the virus. But there are numerous examples of the same social media networks introducing blanket, seemingly arbitrary bans on reputable scientists as well as politicians challenging the official response to Covid-19.  The progressive lawmaker's latest tirade against Mark Zuckerberg's Facebook and other US firms comes last than a day after she returned to Twitter, having declared less than 24 hours before that she was taking a break from the platform due to 'negative comments that caused anxiety'.  AOC has one of...

    KHABIB NURMAGOMEDOV brutally trolled Tony Ferguson after the former interim UFC lightweight champion tried to mock him on social media. In November, fan favourite Ferguson tweeted a mock-up picture of himself elbowing Nurmagomedov with the accompanying caption: "Alphamoad - CSO - #ThatTypeOfGuy Stay Sharp My Friends - Champ Run Fathead Run #Road2Gold Be Ready." 4Khabib Nurmagomedov and Tony Ferguson are still involved in a bitter war of wordsCredit: Getty 4El Cucuy recently took aim at the retired Nurmagomedov on TwitterCredit: Getty 4And Nurmagomedov responded to his rival by tweeting the date of his last victoryCredit: TWITTER El Cucuy followed that up the following month by bizarrely mocking the creation of a 165lb division in Nurmagomedov's Eagles FC promotion. And the retired Nurmagomedov eventually responded to his old rival with a short and blistering tweet. He tweeted: "June 8, 2019." Nurmagomedov's tweet was in reference to the date of Ferguson's last victory, which came against Donald Cerrone at UFC 239. Ferguson, however, refused to let his Russian rival have the final word. He replied: "UFC 209, [he] blamed it on the...

    A Silicon Valley venture capitalist says that men who take six months of paternity leave are ‘losers’ and that ‘in the old days men had babies and worked harder to provide for their future’ which was ‘the correct masculine response.’ Joe Lonsdale weighed into the raging debate sparked by Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg’s decision to take paternity leave after he and his husband, Chasten, welcomed adopted twins into their family. Buttigieg was criticized for taking paid time off while the country continues to suffer from the effects of a major logjam at ports that has exacerbated the supply chain crisis.

    Twitter is exploring an option that allows you to vote against replies to tweets, so that only the most interesting reactions appear above. But an interesting tool on paper can lead to insufficient procedures. In the future, Twitter may categorize responses under a different post chronologically. The American company has actually conducted a test, which arranges the answers based on their success. This reputation will be limited by the number of unfavorable votes received. We seem to have more in the list of answers because we have less. The existence of the experiment was discovered by Michael Donohue on Twitter on October 12, when he woke up and shared a screen shot. Down the arrow we see a new small icon in a circle, as well as a window explaining the approach of the social network. It has been mentioned that the test cannot be viewed by the count of receiving unfavorable votes or made public elsewhere.

    White House officials offered to call rap star Nicki Minaj and connect her with one of the administration's doctors to answer her questions about the COVID-19 vaccine after she claimed without evidence that inoculation can cause impotence. Minaj tweeted Wednesday, before she later alleged on Instagram that she was in "Twitter Jail" and was blocked from tweeting, that the White House "has invited me," adding that she planned to attend, saying, "I'll be dressed in all pink like Legally Blonde so they know I mean business." However, a White House official confirmed the offer was only a phone call and not a formal invite, according to the Associated Press.

    Texas Senator Ted Cruz shared an article on Twitter Monday night that questioned the path forward for millions of Americans who lost unemployment benefits  Texas Republican Senator told more than 7 million Americans whose federal COVID unemployment benefits expired on Monday to 'get a job' that night, predictably provoking outraged responses from across the internet. The conservative lawmaker shared an Associated Press article on the unemployment stipend drying up on Twitter late Monday night. It was headlined 'Jobless Americans have few options as benefits expire.' 'Um, get a job?' Cruz wrote in an apparent answer to the outlet. 'There are millions of vacancies, and small businesses across the Nation are desperate for workers.' People on the social media site lashed out within hours.  'I wish someone would take yours,' wrote Daily Beast editor-at-large Molly Jong-Fast.

    England players look on from the half way line during a penalty shoot at the UEFA Euro 2020 Championship Final between Italy and England.Eddie Keogh - The FA | The FA Collection via Getty Images LONDON — Soccer stars of past and present believe social media companies need to up their game when it comes to tackling racist abuse on their platforms. Black England soccer players Marcus Rashford, Jadon Sancho and Bukayo Saka were the target of a torrent of racist abuse on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter following England's loss to Italy in the Euro 2020 final on Sunday night. Shaka Hislop, the former West Ham United and Newcastle United goalkeeper, who is a founding member of campaign group Show Racism the Red Card, told CNBC's "Squawk Box Europe" on Friday that social media companies need to do more, and accused them of "hiding in a self-serving manner."

    CNN show host Chris Cuomo once again became the subject of Twitter jokes on Monday over the subject matter of a photo he attached to a reply tweet he sent in response to a random critical mention.

Cuomo tweeted a report from Surfside on the tragic building collapse. In response, someone with fewer than 500 followers praised that report, but also referred to Cuomo as “Fredo” and expressed a lack of fandom. In reply, Cuomo retweeted the comment and said that he is no fan of people who claim to be Christian but “act like trash.” To which someone with just over 500 followers responded that Cuomo is doing “crucial work.” The CNN star and governor-brother then retweeted that person, saying he appreciated the comment and adding that “Crisis has no hue of red or blue.” When someone with 12 followers and a username...
    Rebekah Jones, pictured in her office at the Florida Department of Health, was a COVID-19 data compiler who claims she was fired last May. She announced her bid for the US House of Representatives on Tuesday A former Florida Health Department official who was fired for allegedly running a disinformation campaign about the state's COVID-19 response has launched a bid to unseat Matt Gaetz in the US House of Representatives.  Rebekah Jones - an outspoken critic of Florida's Gov Ron DeSantis, who's a close ally of Donald Trump and Gaetz - announced her candidacy in a Twitter statement via WPTV reporter Forrest Saunders.  Jones couldn't tweet the announcement herself because Twitter banned her on Monday for violating the sites 'rules against platform manipulation and spam.'

    Former President Donald Trump said Wednesday that social media giants like Facebook, Twitter, and Google are wrong to have censored him over the past few months and should pay a price for doing so. The angry outburst from Trump came after Facebook's independent Oversight Board on Wednesday morning announced he will remain banned from the company's platform after his accounts on Facebook and Instagram were suspended indefinitely following his role in the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol. Trump has also been banned from popular social media platforms like Twitter, Reddit, and YouTube, which is owned by Google, "What Facebook, Twitter, and Google have done is a total disgrace and an embarrassment to our Country," Trump said in a statement Wednesday. "Free Speech has been taken away from the President of the United States because the Radical Left Lunatics are afraid of the truth, but the truth will come out anyway, bigger and stronger than ever before," Trump added.

    Gary O'Connor (above), the head of the Democratic Party in Lamar County, Texas used a racial slur to describe Senator Tim Scott, a Republican from South Carolina A leading Democratic Party figure in Texas has come under fire after he was accused of racism for referring to Senator Tim Scott as ‘Oreo.’ Gary O’Connor is the chair of the Democratic Party in Lamar County, which is about 115 miles northeast of Dallas. He wrote a controversial post on Facebook in response to Scott’s speech after President Joe Biden’s first address to a joint session of Congress on Wednesday. Scott, the only black Republican in the United States Senate, was chosen by the GOP to give a response to the president’s address. The senator from South Carolina said that the United States ‘is not a racist country.’ O’Connor wrote on Facebook: ‘I had hoped that Scott might show some common sense, but it seems clear he is little more than an Oreo with no real principles.’ The post has since been deleted. DailyMail.com has reached out to O’Connor seeking comment....
    On the heels of his delivery of the GOP response to President Joe Biden’s address to a joint session of Congress, Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) reacted to some of his critics in the wake of that response. Republicans lauded Scott for what had traditionally been difficult for the party not in power. Scott summed up the reaction as the left having “lost their mind,” and he questioned the motivations of their responses. “The left has lost their mind today,” he said. “It’s really saddening to see that. What the left is doing is fighting bigotry with bigotry. And they have exposed their hypocrisy and their true motivation. It has nothing to do with ending prejudice. It has everything to do with claiming or getting more power. I have never seen such power grab and using people in such a despicable way. It is really disheartening to see the left’s response, and frankly, even Twitter’s response to racism and racial slurs. If it comes from the left, it must be OK, according to Twitter’s response 12 hours later. But thanks to...

Twitter, after nearly 12 hours of the phrase trending, eventually blocked the topic. TWITTER BLOCKS TIM SCOTT 'UNCLE TIM' TOPIC THAT TRENDED FOR HOURS AFTER BIDEN REBUTTAL  But Hawley, R-Mo., slammed the social media giant’s response. "With that particular slogan, which is racist and grotesque, and it is meant to be racist and meant to be disgusting, and the people who are promoting it on Twitter know that," Hawley told Fox News. "If it's racism they attribute to other people, they say, 'oh, this is the right, and they’re using offensive speech,' they want to take it down immediately and want to lock out the people who are doing it, and that’s just speech they don’t like."

    Savannah Rychcik April 29, 2021 0 Comments Co-host of “The View,” Meghan McCain, is “disgusted by the response” to Sen. Tim Scott (R-S.C.) following his rebuttal to President Joe Biden’s address to Congress. McCain slammed Twitter for allowing “Uncle Tim” to trend for hours before taking it down. “So it’s okay to be racist and use racial slurs towards Black men as long as they are Republicans. I’m disgusted by the response to him. Hit him on policy if you have policy problems with him, but the way he is being talked about, the way he’s being disrespected, don’t talk to me about micro-aggressions with race in this country,” McCain said on Thursday.

    Progressives pounced on Republican South Carolina Sen. Tim Scott Wednesday night after he delivered the GOP response to President Joe Biden’s joint address to Congress. Scott said in his response that liberals often called him the N-word and “Uncle Tom” simply for being a Black Republican – and liberals on Twitter and cable news then proceeded to call him “Uncle Tim” so much that it trended on Twitter. The senator called on his Democratic colleagues to accept offers from across the aisle to solve America’s big issues: “My friends across the aisle seemed to want the issue more than they wanted a solution. But I’m still working. I’m still hopeful.” Twitter is choosing to trend a racist attack from the left on Sen.

    Twitter has been blasted for removing messages criticising the Indian government's response to Covid even as the daily death toll passed 2,800 people.  Opposition politicians said messages blaming Prime Minister Narendra Modi for the rapidly escalating crisis were blocked after Twitter agreed to the government's demands to take them down. Mirza Saaib Beg, a lawyer whose tweets were among those withheld, accused the government of risking more lives by suppressing information about what was really happening in the country.  Twitter has come under fire after agreeing to block messages criticising the Indian government's response to Covid (pictured, one of the blocked tweets) Opposition politicians said messages criticising the government and Prime Minister Modi for failing to handle the pandemic were blocked (pictured, one of the blocked messages) India is now reporting more Covid cases per day than any other country in the world, and today logged almost 353,000 infections 'Suppression of information and criticism of government is not only dangerous for India but it is putting people around the world at risk,' Beg said.

Amid a record breaking surge in COVID-19 cases, the Indian government wants Twitter to remove posts criticizing its handling of the outbreak, according to a report. Officials cited 21 critical tweets in an emergency request to have them taken down under the country’s Information Technology Act, Reuters reported.

    India is once again trying to silence online criticism of its government. Medianama and TechCrunch report that the Indian government has ordered Twitter to pull more than 50 tweets criticizing the country’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Twitter has since blocked residents’ access to the posts, which included critiques from a Member of Parliament, a minister and prominent members of the film industry. Twitter isn’t the only affected platform, TechCrunch added. The company didn’t directly address the removals in a statement, and instead outlined its policy. Twitter will only “withhold access” to content within a given region if it’s deemed illegal but doesn’t violate the social networks’ policies. The firm added that it notifies account holders “directly” when a legal order affects their service, and publishes takedown requests on Lumen . India is struggling with a record surge of COVID-19 cases after faring relatively well earlier in 2021. Hospitals have been overwhelmed, and oxygen shortages have compounded efforts to treat severe cases. Critics have blamed Prime Minister Modi’s administration for the failures, including packed election rallies, religious gatherings and...

    Getty Bill Belichick had a funny reaction to Mac Jones overthrow As usual, Bill Belichick is doing his due diligence, looking at prospects ahead of the NFL Draft. On Monday, he was in Florida for the Miami Hurricanes Pro Day. On Tuesday, he was in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, to visit with his friend Nick Saban and watch QB prospect Mac Jones’s second throwing exhibition. There was one particular overthrow that seemed to draw a funny response from Belichick. NFL on CBS posted this via NFL Brasil.

    An aggressive series of tweets sent from Amazon's corporate account against two of the Senate's most liberal members and frequent critics of the retail giant were ordered from the very top: company founder and CEO Jeff Bezos. Amazon went after Sens. Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders on social media following Bezos's orders to fight back against what the senators were saying about an ongoing drive to form a union at an Amazon fulfillment center in Alabama. Bezos expressed dissatisfaction in recent weeks that company officials were not more aggressive in pushing back against criticisms that he and other leaders deemed inaccurate or misleading, Vox's Recode reported. Warren, a Democrat from Massachusetts, and Sanders, and independent from neighboring Vermont, have both been slammed the company, with Warren tweeting broadsides about the Amazon not paying taxes or treating its workers fairly and Sanders saying it's trying to stonewall the union effort in Alabama.  An exchange with Warren on Friday began with her criticizing the company's tax payments and calling to 'break up' Big Tech.  Amazon followed with a response, saying: 'This is extraordinary...

    Kayleigh McEnany said former President Donald Trump is doing "just fine without social media." The former White House press secretary told Stuart Varney that Trump feels it is "kind of freeing not to have Twitter." "I spoke to him this week," McEnany said Friday on Fox Business, where she is a contributor. "I spoke to him, certainly in the wake of the Twitter ban, and he said it was kind of freeing not to have Twitter. He had a lot of time on his hands. So, I think he's doing just fine without social media."

When it comes to which state makes the best pizza, New York City-based restaurant consultant Jason Kaplan, owner of JK Consulting, tells Fox News that "it’s definitely not Connecticut," in response to New Haven-based Rep. Patricia Dillon and Sen. Gary Winfield’s bill to make it the pie state.
