"it's unclear why DDoSecrets was banned for republishing hacked material while Wikileaks has been doing the same for years while retaining its Twitter account" https://www.businessinsider.com/blueleaks-twitter-bans-ddosecrets-account-published-secret-police-files-2020-6
@micahflee I've heard conflicting reports on the content of the data. For instance, that there's no police disciplinary data but there is victim data?
@Greg I haven't looked through the content yet myself. The data is from fusion centers, where police departments cooperate with each other.
One big story I've heard from it so far is that FBI has been monitoring social media and sending posts critical of police to local police departments
@micahflee Maybe they go after the easy target, meanwhile Facebook allows far more, hence Ben and Jerry's have now pulled advertising..
@micahflee torrent anyone? Magnet 🧲?
@CyberSocialist torrent is here: https://data.ddosecrets.com/torrent/BlueLeaks.tar.torrent
It's a 22mb torrent, and their server is hammered, so it might take a minute to download. And the magnet link is too long for a toot lol
@micahflee why not torrent the ‘torrent’ then??! And I only need the 🧲 hash!!
there have been various tracker problems and the torrent has been behaving badly
@micahflee 🙏 DHT not working? And out of curiosity what does ‘behaving badly’ mean and why - interference from law enforcement/ someone else?
@micahflee stuck on 99.9% ???
@micahflee Same reason why Trump can post hate or violent speech in violation of platform policy and is still on the platform. Money and too many complaints of Wikileaks were silenced. Smaller entities are easier to silence.
@micahflee good on Twitter for making the leaks suddenly 100 times more interesting to the public. Might as well slap a sticker on it saying, "This is the info Twitter doesn't want you to see!"
@micahflee twitter bad!
