Excellent study that does not just examine how Google may have been sharing extensive personal data via RTB with Rutarget, an adtech/data firm owned by state-owned Sberbank, but more broadly, how Google shares data with hundreds of firms across the planet:

From 2014 to 2019, Twitter asked more than 140 million users for their phone numbers and email addresses to 'protect' and 'secure' their accounts, and then exploited the data for profit, violating a 2011 FTC order.
$150m fine + ban from profiting from deceptively collected data:

#Bitcoin is a Ponzi because it's not economically productive (as in being a system generating products or services) and because a person's gains are just the buy-in money of another person coming in later. This is not a complex argument.
You have the possibility to give feedback to the European Commission:
Du kannst der Europäischen Kommission Feedback geben:
A new study finds 3,000 websites on which third-party tracking companies scoop up what you type into forms in real time — even if you never hit submit. This happens on about 1,800 websites for E.U. users too, likely in violation of the GDPR.
Whatever the terms 'artificial intelligence', 'AI' and 'machine learning' mean or meant, they are now primarily used to obfuscate or glamorize things, so @GeorgetownCPT@twitter.com will stop using them in their work on how digital technologies affect society.
Chatkontrolle: Totale Überwachung?! | Tiemo Wölken
🇬🇧Me and 44 MEPs call on the British gov to stop the extradition of Julian Assange, the US gov to close the charges against him & to release him now! Too long have these proceedings threatened pluralism, freedom of the press, expression and information!
Die EU-Kommission hat mit der #Chatkontrolle jegliches Maß verloren. In einem gemeinsamen Eil-Appell an die Bundesregierung fordern wir sie jetzt dazu auf die Pläne zur Totalüberwachung jeglicher Kommunikation zu stoppen!
Dafür brauchen wir eure Mithilfe:
EU folks, the latest @EU_Commission proposal for scanning private communications and undermining end-to-end encryption is an extreme threat to privacy.
It threatens the right to meaningful encryption and would force your communications to be subject to scanning and classification by AI outside of your control. Truly dystopian shit.
This won't become law without the EU parliament's assent, so please follow this closely and speak up. See EDRI's analysis here:
