This is deeply concerning and (further) makes me question @Twitter's commitment to counter far-right extremist abuses of the platform following the transfer of ownership.
Last month, TSC Executive Director @NaureenCFink spoke at the @NordicSafeCity summit on the global state of counterterrorism. TSC partners with NSC throughout the year to provide briefings on global security trends.

First, the dataset shows that far-right violence is not on the rise. 2021 was the third least violent year since 2015 when counting both fatal and non-fatal attacks and among the three least violent years since 1990 when counting fatal attacks only. 2/8
"The threat landscape on social media has been at a fever pitch for a while"

The quote is from our great colleague @JioreC from @ISDglobal

It has already begun, but you need to be prepared for the full force of Russia’s “firehose of falsehood” propaganda model surrounding the missile strike in Poland. Russia will promote endless conspiracy theories — not to convince you, but to overwhelm you.
"Wicked problems need partnerships."
That sounds obvious, right? But to many, it isn't.
We believe firmly in that statement though, which our collaboration with @Gjensidigestift is a testament to🙋
