Lord Browne’s Twitter Cock-Up

BROWNE HEADERCross bench peer and former BP chief executive Lord John Browne may be an engineering whizz, but he seems to be having trouble understanding that Twitter favourites are not kept private.

A whopping 57% of the tweets Lord Browne has favourited since he joined Twitter two years ago have been pornographic in nature. Whoopsie!!

In the minutes after Guido approached Lord Browne for comment, the pictures were mysteriously deleted.

Drill, baby, drill!

UPDATE:

Lord Browne’s people have got in touch with the old “I was hacked” defence.

“The account is run by Lord Browne and his office. It was brought to our attention a week or two ago that it had been hacked, after which a pornographic tweet was deleted and the password was changed.”

We report, you decide…

UPDATE II:

Techno has asked Lord Browne whether he has reported the hacking of his Twitter account to the police. We await a reply.

Quote of the Day

Dr Alexander Kogan, the app developer who originally harvested the Facebook data, said…

“I think what Cambridge Analytica has tried to sell is magic and made claims this is incredibly accurate and it tells you everything there is to tell about you. But I think the reality is it’s not that. If you sit down and you really work through the statistics and you think what does a correlation of point three means, those claims quickly fall apart. And that’s something any person with a statistical background can go and do.”
