Facebook and Twitter

Be afraid, be very afraid

Man at a computer

More than 100 pro-Trump websites were run from a single town in the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia

ROBERT MERCER uses his genius and his money to turn Facebook and Twitter into weapons of mass deception and mind control. He is a computer genius, a multi-billionaire and an utlta-conserative. Brexit and Trump likely owe their victories to him.

Exactly how he does this is stunning and scary. His own people call it “creepy.”

“It is creepy! It’s really creepy! It’s why I’m not on Facebook! I tried it on myself to see what information it had on me and I was like, ‘Oh my God!’ What’s scary is that my kids had put things on Instagram and it picked that up. It knew where my kids went to school.”

 

But that’s just the beginning.

The biggest
It was $10m of Mercer’s money that enabled Steve Bannon to fund Breitbart. Now the biggest political site on Facebook. The biggest on Twitter.

A data base of 220 million voters
Mercer’s company Cambridge Analytica makes the astonishing boast that it has psychological profiles based on 5,000 separate pieces of data per person on 220 million American voters.

A computer never sleeps
The Brexit communications director calls a Facebook “like” his most “potent weapon.” “Because the computer never stops learning and it never stops monitoring.”

Invasion by the ‘bots’
One third of all traffic on Twitter before the EU referendum was automated “bots” – accounts that are programmed to look like people, to make topics trend. Before the US election, they were five-to-one in favour of Trump – many of them Russian.

Brainwashed
“A computer can actually do psychology, it can predict and potentially control human behaviour. It’s how you brainwash someone. It’s incredibly dangerous."

Create the truth
"And if you use enough of them, of bots and people, and cleverly link them together, you are what’s legitimate. You are creating truth.”
