Del Harvey is head [VP] of Twitter’s Trust and Safety Team
01) Her Twitter Account
02) “Just an Ass-Backward Tech Company”: How Twitter Lost the Internet War
“Del Harvey, Twitter’s resident troll hunter, has a fitting, if unusual, backstory for somebody in charge of policing one of the Internet’s most ungovernable platforms. As a teenager, she spent a summer as a lifeguard at a state mental institution; at 21, she began volunteering for Perverted Justice, a vigilante group that lures pedophiles into online chat rooms and exposes their identities. When the group partnered with NBC in 2004 to launch To Catch a Predator, Harvey posed as a child to help put pedophiles in jail. In 2008, she joined Twitter, then a small status-updating service whose 140-character quirk was based on the amount of alphanumerics that could be contained on a flip-phone screen. She was employee No. 25, and her job was to combat spam accounts.
Harvey’s bildungsroman is legend inside Twitter, where she now serves as vice president of trust and safety, effectively commanding a massive, never-ending war between the company’s censors and a legion of Russian bots, sexual harassers, neo-Nazis, and Turkish hackers who have, at times, seemed to overwhelm the platform. For the past decade, she has been at the forefront of that battle…”
03) Meet Del Harvey, Twitter’s Troll Patrol
“Harvey was the 25th employee at Twitter, where her official title is vice president of trust and safety, but she’s more like Silicon Valley’s chief sanitation officer, dealing with the dirtiest stuff on Twitter: spam, harassment, child exploitation, threats of rape and murder.”
04) How to keep 240 million Twitter users safe: Del Harvey at TED2014
“Del Harvey is watching what you’re doing on Twitter. Head of the Trust and Safety Team at the social network, she develops ways to keep Twitter’s 240 million-plus users safe. With that many people — sending 500 million tweets every day — dangerous things are bound to happen, she says at TED2014.
For Harvey, the day-to-day is hardly boring. “My job is to ensure user trust, protect users’ rights, and keep users safe — both from each other and, at times, from themselves,” she says. “The vast majority of activity on Twitter puts no one in harm’s way; my job is to root out activity that might. [At Twitter], a one-in-a-million chance happens 500 times a day.”
What is #TwitterGate?
The people behind #TwitterGate are attempting to advance the narrative, that Jack Dorsey [president of Twitter] is actively, and intentionally, allowing “child pornography”, “child rape”, “child grooming”, and activities of the like, to run rampant on Twitter…
Their “proof” seemingly can be summed up, with their pointing to legal MAP accounts which openly exist on Twitter, and their baseless, false assertion that “Twitter is allowing the aforementioned activities to exist on it’s platform”…
What is factually happening, is that a bunch of zealots are attempting to spread a false story, stir up wide spread anger, in hopes of pressuring Jack Dorsey into expunging all MAP accounts from Twitter…Because they haven’t been successful with other avenues, in forcing the removal of people who fully comply with Twitters TOS and community standards.
This is a brazen hate campaign.
A Practical Question:
If Jack can bare the brunt of this blame…and all of this hyperbolic assertion can be laid at his feet…
…Then what does this say about the head of Twitters “first line of defense”, Del Harvey?…
…Because…these people are indicting her, by extension…In fact…Del is right down in the trenches…where as Jack, is much more removed…It would seem, Del has a much more immediate hand on these issues.
…Jack can’t “accomplish his [alleged] treachery”, without the acquiescence of Del…
…So…why are these people dragging Jack through the mud…but not Del?
…This makes absolutely no logical sense.
…She is mysteriously missing, in this blame game…despite that some of these bad actors definitely know who she is…They all have a history, together…But it’s very ‘hush, hush’, these days…likely for convenience.
Do You Know Who Del Harvey Is?…Or, What We Are Expected To Believe:
Many may not know this…but I’ve been watching this for well in excess of a decade…and a lot of us MAPs know exactly who Del Harvey is [including by her legal name]…We know her history…what she has associated herself with…and what she has done…
She was not just associated with Perverted Justice [an online hate organization, recognized as a cult and/or dangerous group, which employed terrorism, smearing and blackmail (and possible planting of child porn, to frame it’s victims)]…She was one of the three core members [the only members to attain large personal financial gain from the groups activities], who held legal responsibility [and authority] over “Perverted Justice”.
Despite their claims that “Everybody they targeted was caught in their stings, and hence had broken the law”…Perverted Justice actually targeted, threatened, harassed and terrorized MAPs, who they randomly found online…One of the most notorious examples of this, was their targeting of Free Spirits, BoyChat and it’s individual community members.
This led to a completely illegal and bogus “sex offender register”, entirely fabricated by Perverted Justice…because these petty sociopaths were angry, that they could not get BoyChat [Free Spirits] banned from the internet.
My point being…Del Harvey has a long history, being associated and in charge of criminal fanatic zealots…who were willing to do anything, just to injure a MAP…even if only for the petty thrill of it.
…This says an incredible amount about Del, herself…
…And while she has quietly tried to slink away from her past…and who knows…maybe she has philosophically softened, from the rigid, cruel individual that she was in Perverted Justice…it doesn’t change the fact, that she has been a ravenous enemy of MAPs…
…How is it…that we are expected to believe…that Del Harvey is complacent over “child grooming”, “child porn”, “child rape”, and so on…on the platform she is expected to guide and guard?…
…Again…this makes no logical sense…
…Nothing would lead a thinking, rational mind to the conclusion…that Del would tolerate any such thing…
…So…how is it that #TwitterGate could even be an authentic thing, given everything that we know?
It would demand that Del has done a 180 degree change, on all of her historical stances…and what she has put so much on the line for…
Supremacist zealots don’t change their stripes like that.
I’m Calling Bull Shit On #TwitterGate:
This is so clearly a ploy by bad actors…it is honestly pathetic.
Only people who aren’t aware of the history at play here, would buy into such a brazen lie.
…The bad actors pushing this narrative, are counting on your total ignorance.
