If you offer people easy access to cigarettes without so much as a warning about the risks, you might want to reconsider whether you really are against Big Tobacco or whether you’re doing their bidding.

We have 4.5k followers on Mastodon. If each gave just $2, we would double our fundraising goal the day.

Tor is vital for resisting tracking, surveillance, and censorship online.

If we get just a few thousand more dollars today, we'll even release a surprise.

Bonjour Mastodon ! πŸ‘‹
Vous avez un un lien vers une page qui rΓ©pertorie toutes les crasses faites par Facebook, que je pourrais laisser sur ce dernier avant de supprimer mon compte (que je n'utilise plus mais que j'avais gardΓ© jusque lΓ ) ?

So next time you see β€œBREAKING NEWS” on Twitter or Facebook, think twice about it. Who is broadcasting the message? πŸ˜‰
Peace! (and 17/17)

The Nazis were defeated not only by weapons and force, but also by smart propaganda, disinformation and SIGINT (breaking Enigma was probably a game changer). It’s depressing to see such methods being used in peace time just to cause confusion and chaos. (16/17)

Now the internet did change the playground but not the rules.

Everything is online, which implies 1) information gets shared immediately, and is rapidly out of control, but 2) information is relatively easy to fact check given enough work (compared to WW2) (15/17)

But the rest of the inland German infantry didn’t know that, and it was hard for them to distinguish what was real and what wasn't. And this was only one piece of the big information war the British launched against the Germans. Demoralizing troops was certainly effective (14/17)

They would then start broadcasting music for the benefit of the invading Allied armies on the former Soldatensender frequencies. In fact, Calais was only liberated between 25 September and 1 October 1944, by the Canadian 3rd Infantry Brigade. (13/17) t.co/nvFAaTVWN4

To demoralize German troops during D-Day, they made soldiers think Calais had already fallen in June 6, they renamed the station β€œSoldatensender West” claiming the French Resistance had taken over the "German" radio. (12/17) t.co/pgXoixdqeB

Of course, the English station then began its messages with the same announcement!

The Germans eventually figured out what was going on, and they preceded official instructions with a new message:

"The enemy is broadcasting counterfeit instructions on our frequencies. Do not be misled by them. Here is an official announcement of the Reich authority." (10/17)
