Veritas Expose – Twitter employees are looking at your private messages including those of your privates…

Updated 2019 – Did you ever consider that Twitter might be looking at your private messages?  James O’Keefe of Project Veritas caught twitter employees candidly discussing how they can and do read your MOST PRIVATE MESSAGES.  Hundreds of employees are paid to sift through your most intimate tweets and private messages.

Project Veritas exposed Twitter employees openly talking about how they can view the most personal of private tweets.

The original Project Veritas expose of Twitter was published in January 2018. 

Clay Haynes: “There’s teams dedicated to it… at least, three or four hundred people… they’re paid to look at d*ck pics “

Pranay Singh, Twitter Engineer, Says “All your sex messages… d*ck pics… like, all the girls you’ve been f*cking around with, they’re are on my server now…”

In other words, ANYTHING you send using twitter is stored and hundreds of Twitter employees have access to it.

Once you send or tweet something. It remains on Twitters servers even if you delete it.

They even said that they have information about users even if they don’t log on or have a Twitter account.

Even those without Twitter accounts have their data stored in their databases, according to Conrado Miranda: “You leak way more information than you think. Like, we have information from people–Like, if you go to Twitter for the first time, we have information about you.”

In other words, if you follow a link to a tweet, and who doesn’t? Twitter can grab information from cookies and other methods. You could slow this down by browsing incognito from a proxy but very few people will actually take the time to do this.

“Twitter is aggressively harvesting your personal information and tracking your every movement, selling your virtual dossier to the highest bidder ” says Project Veritas Founder James O’Keefe.

What can you do to prevent Twitter looking at your private messages?

Unfortunately, there isn’t a whole lot you can do unless you join a monastic order in the alps where there is no technology within 50 miles. If you don’t take that route, here are some common sense ideas:
  • Make a rule for youself to never email, tweet, PM, message Post or otherwise send anything that you would not want on the front page or your local newspaper. Ok, maybe the newspaper is an aging technology. Let’s say, anything you would not want sent to every person you know, have know, or ever will know.
  • Learn about private key encryption for email. If you just have to send off color jokes and pictures of your junk, at least encrypt it.
  • Be aware that what you post could lead to your being blackmailed. Take a little time to think how you would react to that. Years ago an American Colonel was being blackmailed by the GRU after he was trapped by a honey pot. The GRU agent met him and told him that he would now give them any and all information that they wanted. The Colonel grabbed the Photos and walked off. The GRU agent scoffed “We have the negatives”.   The Colonel went right to his CO’s office and handed the pics to the CO. “The GRU is attempting to blackmail me”.  Hats off to the Colonel for not succumbing to blackmail.
