Companies take note from what's happening w/ #BoycottInNOut right now: it's a really, REALLY bad time to be making donations to the Republican party, even if you have without incident in past. Deporting U.S. citizens, denying vets passports, and ~500 kids still in jail? C'mon.
Pro tip for all the #BoycottInNOut boycotters: such actions extra effective when they give the company a concrete step it can take to stop boycott i.e. making a public stmt. that it wouldn't choose to donate to GOP again until it reunites every fam, stops deporting citizens etc.
No, @innoutburger, a company donating money to the party that isn't deporting U.S. citizens doesn't magically cancel out the bad ethics of donating to the one that is. Use your common sense for goodness' sake. #BoycottInNOut

Longtime #GrabYourWallet supporter and Georgetown law professor Dr. Heidi Li Feldman 👇 has started a GoFundMe to help cover Dr. Christine Blasey Ford's security costs! She's already raised $1k in 1 hour. I just donated. You should too!
Wow. @HeidiLiFeldman has raised over $16k for Dr. Blasey's security in just two hours. I am dazzled. What better way to show her that we truly have her back? Thank you Heidi and also @warrenleightTV for adding early fuel to the fire!…
Just in case anyone is wondering if we mean it when we say we have Dr. Blasey's back. Thank you @HeidiLiFeldman for organizing this!

.@Jack, from the bottom of my heart: thank you. This will make the lives of a lot of people tangibly better. I will now unblock every company on the #BlockParty500 list. All: if you've been manually blocking as a part of this effort, pls. manually unblock.…
Some are saying @Jack only made this move b/c #BlockParty500 affected Twitter's ad revenues. That may or may not be true, but I think it's important to acknowledge it when companies do the right thing for any reason b/c it's not inevitable they will, even w/ coordinated pressure.
By the way, I hope that Twitter banning Alex Jones means that Wil Wheaton will come back to Twitter. I get that he's having a better life now and all but he needs to understand that this is about MY needs. 😉 Shout out to all #DeactiDay participants! You guys are hardcore. 💪

"We don't believe we should put the burden of abuse and harassment on the victim of it." That's great @Jack, but stop talking about algorithms. An algorithm shouldn't be the line between us a guy like Alex Jones. A grown up human being with human judgement should be.
The DMV doesn't have the same set of requirements for a Toyota Camry driver as it does a Freightliner semi-truck. When a guy with an audience of almost a million people is being abusive and defamatory, it CANNOT be down to an algorithm.
Content creators at Alex Jones' level are more sophisticated than they seem. They know how to skirt the line while still feeding red meat to people who harass and threaten the subject of the coverage. No algorithm can deal w/ that.

Good morning! To encourage Twitter to drop Alex Jones, I just blocked the Twitter accounts of every Fortune 500 company w/ a Twitter presence. Ready to mass block Twitter's most lucrative advertisers with me? There are three quick & easy ways. Instructions are in this thread.
Option One: The quickest, easiest way is to use a free tool called Block Together. Using it, I created a custom block list to which you can subscribe w/ a few clicks. This doesn't negate/overrule your own block list. You’ll just be blocking my own list in addition to your own...
To subscribe to my block list, just click this custom link: Then click the button that says “Block All and Subscribe.” Then click the blue “Authorize App” button. Voila! You’re now blocking all the companies on my list!
