Now's not the time for that. We have a good strategy thread right now and everyone seems to agree that we need to at least have a presence on Twitter.
Your alt account is for anonymity, btw.
I dont have any twitter account and I plan on keeping it that way.
Just sign up for an account. It's not hard. Why are you against this?
i have 200 followers doing pretty well but most of my tweets are shitposts, only some are about leftism
if you go on my page and go on "lists" im on a list made by @omegatheroyal which includes about 70 Holla Forums-affiliated accounts
New handle is @fashybashy
(Hi bruv, if you're lurking)
@ScubeReuben if you like watching someone pretend to be a gulf war veteran.
I can't stress this point enough.
While you're at it, make sure to make alt-left Facebook pages and groups as well as Instagram and YouTube accounts. It's all about exposure and getting your ideas to as wide an audience as possible, you know.
Not user, but what do they offer that is worth my time? What is your sales pitch?
Weebleft looks like some sort of ultra-leftist. Their worst posts don't even make sense. No bigger lolcow than this Phil Greaves pro-Assad lolcow though.
I may make an account like I was already meaning to later, if it helps Holla Forums's twitter presence gain traction early and quickly.
Phil Greaves is the tankiest of tankies.
Oh is that what he fucking is? I didn't know that could GET this bad, it was almost unrecognizable. Aligning with Russia on every issue should've been my big hint, but alas. Lol @ "Democrats are fascist nazis", "NATO is the world's largest sponsor of terror" and his ragegasms against anyone who tries to make Communism funny or promote their own interpretation of it. If there really are Russian shills on the internet this is what they look like.
I'm an ancom, but I'm fine with all forms of leftism.
Forgot to remove shitpost flag
@ShitpostCommie dont really understand the point though.
twitter is gae, and they don't give a shit about privacy
1. they dont allow tor lets say you create a twitter with no personal information, including a phone number. you use a throwaway email from a privacy-orientated email provider and you're good to go. BUT if you ever so dare to log into your account via tor, guess what? they'll lock your account and force you to verify a phone number.
2. pms are gae for the most part, people will just click on links randomly sent to them. also, for the most part, people on twitter allow anyone to send them pms. because of the fact that most people can be pm'd at will and people randomly click links sent to them, that means that you could be sent a malicious link. not some retarded virus shit, just a goo[dot]gl link that links to some stupid meme on imgur or some shit. but heres the kicker, that goo[dot]gl link logs your IP address.
goo[dot]gl link > malicious url (logs your IP) > shit meme on imgur
so, you can get doxed really easily.
if you fucks really wanna shitpost on twitter, buy a vpn (i recommend air vpn airvpn.org/), dont click random shit and for the love of fuck don't put personally identifiable information on there (including shit like "i go to X local political group"). If you say you go to meetings about communism in Vancouver, that narrows the amount of things they have to search through.
fucks sake let me upload chen over tor
Oh, uh, on the subject of Twitter infiltration, what do you guys think our chances on Tumblr are? I've got pretty mixed feelings on it. I was one of the OPFirefly guys in Gamergate and it was ultimately a blunder because the reasonable ones didn't really care one way or the other and the really aGG people were completely unreasonable (attribute this to it being full of only somewhat politically engaged kiddies). Plus, the rightist presence on there is weakened and pretty small. There are some genuine communists on there already but they usually care more about more present struggles like feminism. Anyway it's @LaresGriton.
not necessarily true, I successfully created an account over Tor without any problems, although I stopped using it after 5 minutes because it was so fucking useless. although this was quite a while ago, more than a year probably, so I can't guarantee how it works right now.
@PhanWW I don't really post though
For the fucking love of God. Anyone on here use gnu/social or diaspora?
Ridden with Holla Forumstards posting anime girls with MAGA hats.
Why would you shrink your echo chamber even further? The way twitter works is bad as it is.
ridden with a demand for my phone number and normalfags
Why not? I'm surrounded by people that I dosagree with in real life and on social media all the time.
We aren't fucking ALT LEFT. We are the actual left.
Why bother with Twitter? It's tolerable as far as social media goes, but the last time we did anything significant with it we only ended up catering to edgy teens that don't know what they're talking about and letting rightcucks circlejerk over the former.
defeatests leave, he who controls the discourse controls politics.
I say we appropriate anti-communist hashtags to spread our message. Perhaps #CommunismKills? Spam that we're coming for them, buckos?
This is a decent idea, we need a way for it to gain traction though
We spam. The trending bar on the left then shows normies it if we get it high enough.
Another tactic we could use is buying ad space on twitter to spread out rhetoric. We should make whatever it links to clear and concise and targeted at workers and dispelling misconceptions about the left.
I'll follow all of you who won't shit up my timeline
I'm surprised no one's posted all the trip/name fags yet
Follow these on alt accounts, don't get your real one mixed up in this, it makes it easier for Holla Forums.
@deepcomrade If you want leftcom cynicism this is the account for you.
o shit waddup NSA
currently compiling a list of all the Holla Forums-affiliated accounts i follow
Ok, so since we can't brigade directly on our own, we could to adopt the strategy that Holla Forums used to use and still does: bullying/ witch-hunting. Post accounts like this one and bully them to suicide and the news may report on how commies are bullying people in social media. twitter.com/nocommiesplease/status/801446407311802368
Goddammnit twitter is making me add a fucking phone number to the account fuck off
Left Twitter is 99% about attacking liberals. If you follow any Twitter account posted here you'll see endless RTs and screencaps of libs saying shit, so what you do is you jump in, attack them on their own Tweets (so their followers see you) and try to win their audience. The overall strategy here is to win the progressives from the Democrats.
If, instead, you see a right-winger saying shit, you attack and mock them so they feel a bit discouraged to tweet again.
And don't have an account that is too meme-y because it makes it easier to dismiss you.
Oh and just contribute shit. If you're active and you have OC, new information or a good line it will make the rounds. Wikileaks e-mails for example often tend to go ignored until someone finds something good and brings it up on social media. Even journalists take their cues from shit that circulates on Twitter.
This, my god listened to chapo trap house today and it was all this meta humor circle jerk about all these liberals I never heard of, then parsing all these details about their work cause it's sooo funny.
Twitter left seems like they're mostly crypto liberals trying to soothe white peoples fear that the country isn't racist after it elected a virulent racist.
Doesn't make the state and a Hugh plurality of people racist and classist
Chapo is basically commentary on the pundit class, so if you're not clued up on who these are and what they do, you will not get most of their criticism and most of their jokes.
