Elon Musk just pulled out of the deal to buy Twitter and Twitter execs are upset. How the tide has turned. I thought they didn’t want him?
The alleged reason for his pulling out was because Twitter failed to provide numbers for fake and or bot accounts.
As anyone who followed the Johnny Depp v Amber Heard defamation suit knows, Amber’s team tried to maintain that Johnny Depp had thousands of bot accounts.
If you look at the crowds that greeted Johnny Depp in the UK and Europe, I’m not sure why there could be an assumption that people who support him are bots unless you also want to claim that the crowds are fake and dropped in with visual effects technology. He’s a popular guy. Jack Sparrow helped put billions in the bank for Disney and smiles on the faces of millions around the world. The box office numbers are there to prove it.
Johnny Depp also used the platform he was given in San Sebastian last year to wisely warn everyone about “Cancel Culture”:
Projection is everything.
Amber Heard was as an “ambassador” for ACLU Women. In 2016, she stood by Michele Dauber at the Glamour Awards for “Emily Doe”. She gave credit to Michele Dauber in 2018 for her contributions to the #MeToo movement.
Michele Dauber was accused of manipulating social media in 2016 with her husband Ken Dauber – an early Google Employee. Ken had also been hired as a consultant by the Department of Education between 2009 and 2012. His payments ceased when Michele Dauber’s friend from law school, Russlynn Ali, left the Department of Education Office of Civil Rights to work for Laurene Powell Jobs (Steve Jobs’ widow) at XQ Institute.
“As early as June 2016, whistleblowers at Google, Facebook and Twitter alleged Stanford University professor Michele Dauber and her husband Ken Dauber …”
It’s a weird irony that it should be Elon Musk – Amber Heard’s adulterous lover who visited Johnny Depp’s apartment while he was out of town to see her – who pulls out of the Twitter deal.
A Gordian Knot if ever there was one and a game of leverage and/or blackmail perhaps? Who, in the Michele & Ken Dauber, Amber Heard and Elon Musk world, has leverage over who?
I wonder if Elon Musk read the reports of Professor Michele Dauber and Ken Dauber and their experimentation with social media manipulation in 2016 that led to his inquiry?
Or perhaps he’s followed the Amber Heard supporters and realized that some of them might be bots with some serious political sponsorship behind them?
When Emma Watson became the face of the UN Women #HeForShe campaign in September 2014, this article was published. SKDK were the PR company.
Laura L Dunn, a member of the White House Task Force formed in 2014 to combat sexual assault on campus, comments in it. Social media was a weapon. It was a weapon used strategically for #HeForShe and for #MeToo.
Laura L Dunn was also tied to the Department of Education Office of Civil Rights and worked on the “Dear Colleague” Title IX federal directive signed by Russlynn Ali and drafted by Michele Dauber.
They all knew the value of media and social media manipulation.
The Facebook whistleblower showed us how Facebook was fully aware that divisive messages drove traffic up.
Witch hunt mentality on social media deserves investigating, especially when it comes to fake accounts and bots. Who is behind these?
Michele Dauber commented that the issue of domestic and sexual violence got women out to vote in droves. Seems like she knew that the more venomous the speech on social media, the more it would drive those numbers up, just like the Facebook whistleblower revealed a few months ago.
We want to keep our kids safe. We need transparency from Twitter, Facebook, Google, Yahoo, YouTube.

I’m not a fan of Elon Musk for what he got up to behind Johnny Depp’s back in Johnny Depp’s home with Johnny Depp’s wife. But I do want to know what he wants to know. I think it is of national and critical public interest.
