#Protip for those who ride #BART from #SanFrancisco to the #EastBay every day: if you usually try to get on at the #Embarcadero station and are frustrated that you can't find a seat, consider a little maneuver I like to call "the J". Basically what you do is take #BART back to #CivicCenter and get on your train there.
While you're not guaranteed to get a seat, you have a much higher chance of enjoying your commute.

I stopped the car, rolled down the window and said, “Sup turkeys…” to which they actually responded with… well, more than a few of them gobbled at me. I have taken this as a sign of the following:
#Motel6 to pay $12M to pay restitution for giving #immigration information to ICE without a #warrant. Ironically, that's the same amount of money that I would require before I'd willingly step foot sober in a #Motel6. - https://www.cnn.com/2019/04/07/us/motel-6-immigration-customs-enforcement-settlement/index.html

The only thing I needed to know about this entire train wreck was already given to me in the last three words of the headlines: "Kirstjen Nielsen's Resignation" - https://lifehacker.com/everything-you-need-to-know-about-kirstjen-nielsens-res-1833890154
Saying that you vow to be better at #privacy than #Facebook is like saying you plan on being better at not smoking than George Burns: https://www.cnn.com/2019/04/04/tech/snapchat-ads-facebook/index.html

TikTok was found to be not following privacy rules.
And then, in the process of trying to comply with them, made a series of mistakes that cost people access to their videos. https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2019/03/why-are-creators-paying-tiktoks-mistake
No one thinks it was a good idea for the FCC to abandon oversight over the broadband industry. But some in Sacramento think CA should do the same. AB 1366 would set the state backwards on promoting broadband competition. Tell your legislator to vote NO. https://www.eff.org/deeplinks/2019/03/californias-legislature-contemplating-abandoning-oversight-over-broadband-0

Maybe you all don't care about what your customers need to do to buy from you, but you should. 🤢 🤮
