the strongest weapon against hateful speech is not repression, it is more speech — the voices of tolerance that rally against bigotry and blasphemy, and lift up the values of understanding and mutual respect.
this is exactly right. well said.
Today is National Voter Registration Day. If you aren’t registered to vote, today is a good day to fix that.

Update: Drew Olanoff has the note from IFTTT CEO Linden Tibbets:
In recent weeks, Twitter announced policy changes that will affect how applications and users like yourself can interact with Twitter’s data. As a result of these changes, on September 27th we will be removing all Twitter Triggers, disabling your ability to push tweets to places like email, Evernote and Facebook. All Personal and Shared Recipes using a Twitter Trigger will also be removed. Recipes using Twitter Actions and your ability to post new tweets via IFTTT will continue to work just fine.
In other words, anything syndicating tweets out elsewhere will stop, but recipes for posting new tweets will still work. So it’s half bullshit, but still bullshit.
in but not out is exactly the definition of all bullshit.
Bullshit. I am getting so tired of reading these stories. My tweets are mine and I want to save them to MY archive. It’s really difficult for me to imagine not using Twitter, but this kind of thing is really making me consider it. I wish they would stop being such dicks.
