Hands-down two of my favourite books that I have read so far this year. #AnUglyTruth by @sheeraf and @ceciliakang and #PermanentRecord by @Snowden Yes, Facebook is one of the most dangerous companies in the world. Haven’t used Facebook since 2015. #FacebookIsDown

Somebody should tell Elizabeth Warren.

Sooo. 3ish billion people are having their cages and confidence rattled... This sort of thing was inevitable. Fingers crossed that this event becomes a canonical example of "the bigger they are, the harder they fall." Time will tell.
