Se uno vuole rendersi conto del ruolo reazionario e di propaganda del Potere svolto da #Wikipedia, esatto opposto funzionale della Encyclopédie, può per esempio leggere la seguente, impegnata a smontare l'unica tesi logica, quella giornalistica: en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_St…
La voce, frutto di un ventennio di elaborazione, sta dalla parte del Potere e della sua Propaganda di Guerra e contro il rasoio di Occam.
Quando #Wikileaks pubblica #CollateralMurder con documenti originali del Potere, il giochino usato dalle fonti predilette da Wikipedia, crolla
E quali sono le fonti predilette da Wikipedia (e dalla antitesi del giornalismo di inchiesta che sono i debunker professionisti)? Le veline dei governi occidentali distribuite dalle Betulle e le dichiarazioni, prese face value, degli stessi politici rappresentanti del Potere.

Tarihin en kapsamlı, en açık, en özgür, en tarafsız bilgi kaynağı; tarihte ilk kez tüm dünyadan yazarların katkılarıyla oluşmuş; dünyanın en çok okuduğu; tamamen bedava ve canlı ansiklopedi #Wikipedia'nın tamamını, tarihin en gülünç sansürüyle halkına yasaklayan ilk ülke Türkiye+
+Her maddesi ayrı bir sayfa/adres iken tamamı yasaklandı. Yasak bahanesi #15Temmuz ve #Suriye konulu maddelere AkP'nin görüşleri de eklendiği halde 2 yıldır TR nezdinde tüm girişimleri boşa çıkan #Wikipedia, şimdi Avrupa İnsan Hakları Mahkemesine başvurdu.
bbc.com/news/world-eur…
+Yasaklamak yerine mesela o 2 maddede halkın parasıyla beslenen #SETA şaklabanlarına #AkP görüşleri yazdırılsaydı ne olurdu? Şimdi tüm dünya, #Suriye iç savaşında terörizme destek olduğunu yazdı diye #Wikipedia'nın tamamını yasaklayan TR'nin AİHM yargılanışını konuşuyor olmazdı.+

The end of another semester of engaging students with @WikiEducation at @MissouriSandT @sandtcasb in #HistSCI means another tweet thread about this super fun project.
49 students, 32 articles, 40K words added, +285K views so far. I love their work! Take a look!
I'm going to group them. First group-- #WomenInSTEM #WomeninHistory
Students found that, uh oh, it's HARD to find reliable sources on women in science! This didn't stop them, though. They pushed through and learned some new research skills.
en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Annie_S._… is 1 product.
Tycho's sister, en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sophia_Br… was another article that needed work. The women who worked on this one had to find all sources on Tycho then sift through for the 2-3 pages about Sophia. Thank goodness for good #librarians at S&T who were patient and helpful!

If you're angry about the recent deletion of articles by @jesswade from #Wikipedia, there is a way to help. Of course, that way is also open to you if you are not angry about those deletions: Help to edit Wikipedia. 1/n
After all, Wikipedia is "the free encyclopedia that anyone can edit"! Only that it's not that simple, of course. It's easy to become enthusiastic about contributing to Wikipedia, start editing, have some really frustrating encounters with other members of the community, and 2/n
then leave because who needs that kind of aggravation when they are just trying to volunteer for something? This thread is about how to do good things on Wikipedia and avoid at least some of the frustration-inducing pitfalls. 3/n

'All Things Made New' Dr Charles Henry talks about the the intersection between technology and culture @NLNZ
#remix culture feels ephemeral but put in a more stable environment we get #Wikipedia a more serious product.
The challenge for libraries and archives is around scale, the sheer number of digital artifacts. But also, what is real and authentic?

goo.gl/jYajoz On the 6 February 2019 #BBCNews reported that the #Venezuelan military, under the orders of #Maduro blocked the Tienditas bridge on the border with #Colombia to humanitarian aid. The bridge was completed in 2016 was blocked by #Colombia and never opened!
Bridge building was concluded in early 2016, but due to the crisis between Venezuela and Colombia in 2015 the bridge has not been officially opened. goo.gl/5iGVuN
Interestingly the #Wikipedia reference to the bridge was edited on the 7th February 2019. Mentions of the bridge never opening were deleted. The original Wikipedia entry referenced this article goo.gl/kjv1yP

The Wikipedia #1Lib1Ref campaign starts soon! "Your goal today is to add one reference to #Wikipedia! Any citation to a reliable source is a benefit to Wikipedia readers worldwide." Make sure to include the hashtag #1Lib1Ref in your edit summary. 1lib1ref.org
Last year was my first year participating in #1Lib1Ref and I am thoroughly hooked! Trying to make it a regular part of my praxis to add relevant citations to #Wikipedia when I’m doing collection development or answering reference questions.
Last year for #1Lib1Ref I focused on on Eastern European literature, translating and creating Wikipedia pages for literary awards, authors and works where none yet existed in English, adding authority control information and linking to @Wikidata.

This semester in my Arts of Islam survey, I decided to scrap the research paper and have students collaborate to re-write @Wikipedia articles. It ended up better than I could have imagined & transformed how I think about teaching #StudentsOfIslamicArt #IslamicArt #MedievalTwitter
I was hesitant about shaking up a popular class that had worked well for years, but one statistic finally convinced me: 90% of Wikipedia articles are written by men - and largely by men from Euro-American contexts. theguardian.com/education/2018…
The oft-maligned #Wikipedia is the now the world's most frequently-consulted source of information & fifth-most visited website. Because anyone can be an editor, it's on us to make it the best resource it can be. If you think Wikipedia is bad, look in the mirror. Wikipedia is us.

Plagier #Wikipedia pour remplir un magazine, certains en ont rêvé, le "Magazine de l’Aviation" l’a fait !

Des pages entières sont d’authentiques copiés-collés d’articles de Wikipedia.

Un thread pour dénoncer ces pratiques honteuses ⤵️⤵️⤵️
Commençons avec un article sur l’histoire de Boeing. Tout va bien. Sauf que ledit article est repris quasi intégralement de l’article de Wikipedia :

Cerise sur le gâteau : les titres des paragraphes sont identiques à ceux de Wikipedia (copy-paste oblige).
Le "magazine" liste ensuite les différents modèles d'avions qui ont marqué l'histoire de Boeing. Et là, ô surprise, 100% des textes sont plagiés.

Sources : fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boeing_247

#JollofMusic101 Dear Upcoming Artiste: Basic Music Industry Terms you Should Know

3) Indie Labels:
These are self-funded labels that is NOT affiliated to any Big Three Record Label. Affiliation in this regard could be seen in the case of Mr Eazi’s Banku Music label liaising...
Universal Music Group Nigeria & South Africa. After his affiliation with Wizkid’s StarBoy Records in 2016.

Indie Labels often operate solo and an example of one would be #RicHassani’s label called Riverland Records.

A manager is an integral determinant in the making or marring of an artiste’s career. The manager guides and oversees the daily dealings of an artist.

Meet #Israel's #Hasbara, which means #Propaganda, MSM Censorship Application👇🤨
This app came out about last year, and it is still on the iTunes store.
The app posts daily missions & TELLS YOU WHAT TO DO AND WHAT TO SAY
#Trolls #Palestine #Gaza #BDS #JeremyCorbyn #JC4PM
6yrs ago #Jerusalem, #IDF Rep:
"we are now located in the SAME building where the Foreign Journalists are,we have close working relationships w/ hundreds of journalists. In addition we launched media project working in many platforms,twitter in Arabic, Russian, French & English."
How #Israel-i Propaganda (#Hasbara) Works: #TheLuntzDocument
If you want to understand how the #propaganda works you need to read the Luntz document -- "The Key," Luntz says, "is the Claim that the Fight is Over Ideology, Not Land. About Terror, & Not Territory."

Wikipédia, cet « outil efficace pour gérer son e-réputation » qui « permet de ramener du trafic sur un site web et d’en accroître la notoriété ».

En fait non, vous avez tout faux, cher monsieur !

(Et je vais faire de ce pas un #thread)
#Wikipédia est donc une encyclopédie, une encyclopédie vise à recueillir le savoir reconnu comme notable dans le monde. Ainsi, elle ne traite que de sujet réputés à travers le grand public.
Il est donc évident qu'une entreprise de plomberie ou un cabinet d'avocat, même le plus renommé à travers un territoire, ne peut pas avoir d'article. Et oui, sur une encyclopédie, tous les sujets n'ont pas leur place !

💪A thread on amazing Twitter threads 😍👇
In the process of revamping my #Twitter profile (dormant earlier), I have come to appreciate the wonderful underutilized platform it is!
Some threads contain crisp knowledge capsules that can help many. Starting 1 on such curated content
1. I largely rely on this: threadreaderapp.com to find content
2. What I wish to share is what coincides largely with my interests- #Learning, #Investing, #Behavioralpsychology (#mentalmodels, #bias, etc), #Businessbooks, Industry insights/case studies, Life experiences, etc
3/n
While it will be difficult to structure the order of content here, I will try to block threads by category (as noted above & more). Feel free to comment with any good thread that you would have come across. Cumulative learning always helps.

Les lacs présentent cette particularité (par rapport aux rivières par exemple) d'être des milieux avec peu de courants qui favorisent la sédimentation des particules. Parmi ces particules, des dépôts allochtones (externe au lac) et des dépôts autochtones (en provenance du lac).
D’ailleurs vous avez une idée de combien se dépose de sédiment dans un lac tel que le Léman ?
Je vous donne la réponse en début d'aprem !
Et pour le lac d'Annecy, qui est 80 fois plus petit en volume, est-ce que la quantité de matière détritique sera selon :

1. Thread.
Hypothesis on the #LindsayMenz allegations that @SenFranken grabbed her ass during a photo at a fair, while he was senator.
Let's start by looking into the EXIF file of the photo.
2/ The EXIF data contains #metadata which is like a blueprint of the photo. It shows #camera model, date created, modified, flash on/off, basically everything. The image is attached.:It shows the modified date: 11/19/17 and the time of 16:49.02 or 4PM49mins.
This image is odd and
3/ I will explain why the data is odd. That is the entire list. The metadata should be multiple pages. See the attached file for an example of one image. This is from the #AlFranken "grope" picture. (It is fake 2 see my pinned tweet) See how much more info there is? BUT IF YOU
