Any chance the Murdoch-owned MySpace could see a resurgence in popularity? Or would no-one be desperate enough to stoop to something as shit as MySpace?

Can you make an account with MySpace at the moment?

I looked at it last year and it seemed to just be a closed archive of all the MySpace pages with all the music unavailable

Amusingly enough, given Parler used a trial version of a software to verify emails and password changes, and that was turned off, there was a bit of time where password changes were automatically accepted - so people were able to steal an admin account, and then create a number of admin accounts, and from these, they started grabbing as much content as they could, posts, videos, and of course, both sides of the driver's licenses of verified users......

So glad our health secretary has time to comment on Trump being banned from Twitter.

Quote
The decision by Twitter to permanently suspend Donald Trump from its platform could justify tightening the regulation for social media companies, a cabinet minister has suggested.

Matt Hancock said the move showed Twitter “taking editorial decisions” and by implication accepting that social media companies are not just platforms.

As a former culture secretary, Hancock said this raised significant questions about how social media companies are regulated, although he accepted this was not part of his current portfolio as health secretary...

Hancock's comments make no sense - it wasn't an "editorial decision", Trump broke the rules. I find Hancock's comments quite sinister - calling for tighter regulation will surely discourage Twitter from removing any other powerful people who break Twitter's rules from the platform.

Personally I think Trump got off very lightly, given that it took years for him to be banned despite all the shit he spewed on there. Does Hancock disagree with the Trump twitter ban but hasn't the guts to say?

70TB of data including everything people thought was deleted and because Parler didn't scrub Exif metadata the photos and videos have GPS coords intact.

Here is a description of what went down according to someone with far greater technical knowledge than me:

"so a group of developers latched onto the Press Release that Twilio put out at midnight last night. In that Press Release, Twilio accidentally revealed which services Parler was using. Turns out it was all of the security authentications that were used to register a user. This allowed anyone to create a user, and not have to verify an email address, and immediately have a logged-on account.

Well, because of that access, it gave them access to the behind the login box API that is used to deliver content -- ALL CONTENT (parleys, video, images, user profiles, user information, etc) --. But what it also did was revealed which USERS had "Administration" rights, "Moderation" rights.

Well, then what happened, those user accounts that had Administration rights to the entire platform... The hackers, internet warriors, call it what you will, was able to use the forgot password link to change the password. Why? Because Twilio was no longer authenticating emails. This meant, they'd get directly to the reset password screen of that Administration user.

This group of Internet Warriors then used that account, to create a handful of other ADMINISTRATION accounts, and then created a script that ended up creating MILLIONS of fake administration accounts.

Now that they had a way of creating admin accounts without interruption, they created a Docker Image (basically a virtual machine) called a Warrior, that anyone could download, and when fired up, would immediately start collecting data off of Parlre, in a coordinated fashion.

Consider it like SETI (Search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence) that people used to load up as screen savers when their computers were not being used. Same concept, crowdsourcing.

All of this data, the videos, the images, the posts, the metadata (including the GEO location of all images and videos, and the connections to the accounts that posted it, has been (since midnight) being uploaded to various cloud drives and storage arrays for the purposes of Archiving this information, for later retrieval by law enforcement, by the public, by Open Source Intelligence communities.

And the kicker.. is this: all of this information was thought to be secure and private by individuals who were making the posts. A significant number of those individuals went through the process of being a "Verified Citizen" on Parler. What does that mean?

It means they uploaded a picture of the front and back of their REAL State Driver's License........ Let that sink in for a second.

I am positive the FBI has been actively soaking in this information along with the Internet Warriors, but this is how they are going to officially track down.

And it's how the FBI, DHS, and FAA have been able to immediately and exhaustively create no-fly lists. Every verified attendee of the Capitol riot where they can find a real name has been placed on No-Fly Lists.

It might seem like a small geeky glitch or hack.. but in the age of Information warfare... this is the silver bullet for the people who used Parler as a place to organize their efforts.

Also, a lot of posts were deleted by Parler members after the riots on the 6th. Turned out... Parler didn't actually delete anything.. just set a bit as deleted.

Guess what has access to all "deleted" content?

Administrator accounts."

This is effectively entirely incorrect and it bothers me it's been upvoted so much. Someone reverse engineered the Parler iOS application, found an API endpoint (basically a web address that is used by the application internally to get data) that allowed them to enumerate the "public ID" of all posts, videos, comments, etc. Those public IDs are now being used to get the content. That's it. That's the whole story.

It's just part of paving the way to what's surely on the cards, much tighter regulation of what people are allowed to say on the internet. Thin end of the wedge and all that, but you can't say it hasn't been coming.

The question is arguably whether application of the rules constitutes an editorial decision.

Edit: It's fairly clear that the actual utterances that they did Trump on are … pretty harmless. Certainly in contrast to many of his tweets over the years. Yes, an argument can be made on the basis of extraordinarily important context - although this demands fairly fine judgements about public interest and the relative significance of acts of violence over the last four years.

That largely depends on the regulation being threatened.

They seemed to have finally removed Trump in large part in response to threats by the now-re-empowered Democrats to regulate social media with a greater emphasis on liability whatever they do. By contrast, by late 2020 the Trump Administration was threatening liability if social media companies didn't apply their rules more narrowly (which probably kept him on there a bit longer, until his days were numbered in the tens and his appointees in the FCC signalled that they were throwing in the towel).

Either way, we seem to end up with a major online public space being effectively regulated by whatever governments are big enough to command Twitter's attention, without any real accountability for either those governments or Twitter.

It's … nice that they've got rid of a bunch of people who deserved it this time.
