Twitter Forms Special Council to Tackle Abuse Issues

Twitter is taking the next step to deal with abuse on its social network.

The company today announced it will form a Trust and Safety Council to help in the development of products, policies, and programs that help make Twitter users feel safe.

The Twitter Trust & Safety Council will be made up of more than 40 groups including the Center for Democracy and Technology, the National Domestic Violence Hotline and the National Cyber Security Alliance to name a few.

“To ensure people can continue to express themselves freely and safely on Twitter, we must provide more tools and policies,” Twitter said in a blog post.

“With hundreds of millions of Tweets sent per day, the volume of content on Twitter is massive, which makes it extraordinarily complex to strike the right balance between fighting abuse and speaking truth to power. It requires a multi-layered approach where each of our 320 million users has a part to play, as do the community of experts working for safety and free expression.”

News of the council, which is made up of safety advocates, academics, and researchers, grassroots advocacy organizations and community groups, comes just two months after Twitter’s update to its violent threats policy.

Members of the Twitter Trust & Safety Council are:

Details of 29,000 FBI, DHS Agents Dumped Online

The names and personal details of 20,000 FBI agents and 9,000 Department of Homeland Security officers have been dumped online.

A hacker published the DHS info Sunday and the FBI details late Monday via Cryptobin along with the password — lol — to access the information.

Screen Shot 2016-02-09 at 11.17.14 AMIncluded in the dumps, which were announced on Twitter by the hacker, are names, job titles, phone numbers, state locations and e-mail addresses. The Twitter account announcing the dumps, @DotGovs, use a profile picture of Disney cartoon character Buzz Lightyear and the name ‘penis.’ Under that is the hashtag #FreePalestine along with the line “Fuck your government.”

The hacker got in touch with Motherboard, providing the publication with a copy of the data, which included the names of approximately 1,000 FBI employees in an intelligence analysis role. Job descriptions included titles such as: task force deputy director, security specialist and special agent, to name a few.

The hacker bragged to Motherboard that he duped a government employee into providing info that he was then able to use to access a DOJ portal that, in turn, gave him access to three different government computers.

Motherboard was able to confirm that much of the info was legitimate, although some appeared to be outdated.

The hacking incident remains under investigation by the Department of Justice.

“This unauthorized access is still under investigation; however, there is no indication at this time that there is any breach of sensitive personally identifiable information,” DOJ spokesman Peter Carr told Motherboard.

It is not yet known who the hacker is but, based on the Twitter account being used, it appears he supports the Pro-Palestine agenda.
