Twitter did something it has never done in its history to a man who has done things that America's presidents have never done in theirs.It fact-checked Donald Trump's tweets about election malpractices.With this, the tech giant has been forced deeper into the murky waters of content policing. But it's for a cause?Across Africa, the fear of internet censorship is highest around election time, the most recent being in Burundi.One common reason given by governments is to police the flow of false and harmful information at a time when the country is most vulnerable.Now compare that to the line Jack Dorsey felt that Trump had finally crossed:'We will continue to point out incorrect or disputed information about elections globally. 'Unrelated: How a fact-checking process with significant human intervention can scale to, say, the Twitter account of the Burundi president is a topic for another day.Truth has no agenda... or does it?Perhaps the real reason why African dictators police the internet around election time is that they are scared of losing.Dorsey is admittedly 'left-leaning', and his political bias has come into sharp focus once again. With everything that's at stake at the polls this year, those questions are to be expected.Subscribe to the get.Africa newsletter, a weekly roundup of African tech in a language you will understand.

what's the difference led/lcd/hdtv and plasma?
Have to disagree with the LED expensive comment, they are just a little more than an LCD to buy. I think they are being mistaken with OLED (Organic) which are very costly. Plasma are old news, if you want a screen size over 42" consider one as they do have better 'blacks' than an LCD. They are very heavy and the plasma needs re-gassing once in a while by a professional. LCD are lighter and good up to a 42" size, after that they struggle. LED Samsung do some very nice onces, would be my choice, they have hundreds of led's in rows which can light up individually giving better colour definition.
Is Fox News led by Bill O and Sean Hannity the most credible name in news? And the undisputed ratings champ?
Fox News is not led by Bill O and Sean Hannity, but yes, they are the best
Is Australia slipping from US hands to China as they are more tend towards China which led the US ambassador to give this statement?
To be frank, I do not really get what can Australia get from US. National security? Australia land is an isolated continent in ocean while Australia itself gets very little rivals in the world (to my knowledge, only some sea territory conflicts with Indonesia.). In trade aspects, US and Australia are competitors in China market. Natrual gas, milk powder, wine, barley, beef and some other agricultural products. I think Donald Trump will be more than happy to find that China put puntive tariff on Australian goods so that US can take the market share since that it is a prior terms requested in trade war agreement.All China ask is a neutral Australia without hostile attitude (by strictly following US) so that they can make good trade. Take 5G as example, UK and Canada do not ban Huawei in their market and never accuse national security issues against it. I understand that Australia may not need 5G technology (by the way, the internet here sucks) so they do not give a damn to ban Huawei. And most important thing is that Huawei is not 5G, it only owns 18% of total exisitng patents of 5G technology which makes easier understanding of why US would like put sanctions on Huawei with maybe exisitng threats.
Do any of you Liberals and Democrats suspect maybe you are being led over a cliff when?
When President Bush changed his attention from Afghanistan to Iraq did YOU feel like you were being led over a cliff? Most Republicans are so confused about what they are supposed to believe in. I know for a fact that if President Bush was the one pushing through this stimulus then there would suddenly be nothing wrong with it & Republicans would "understand" why it's neccessary. This is really just a lot of the fact that Obama is not the guy you supported so anything he does is wrong.
pencil led in my lotion :D?
Pencil led is actually not lead at all. It is graphite that they use for pencils. People just call it that sometimes. The lotion would be fine. When the graphite comes out, just do not use that big part. The eraser should be fine too because it is harmless unless for some reason you eat it! Lol :-) Hope I helped.
My electrician suggested me to install led downlight for kitchen & bathroom. Are they of any good?
The kitchen and bathroom have low ceiling height that's why it is usually suggested to install that type of ceiling light which are surface mount or have very low projection out of the ceiling.Downlight are those type of light which has a very clear surface. Nowadays most of the dialogue downlights come fitted with LED inside. Thus, it is1. Energy efficient2. Can give you a long lifetime up to 50000 hours,3. Compact in size4. No warm-up period ( instant on-off)5. Excellent color rendering, and6. Environmental friendlyMy electrician suggested me to install led downlight for kitchen & bathroom. Are they of any good?
What actions of the Modi-led government make Indian minorities feel alienated?
It is a series of various actions. Cow vigilantes and incidents of lynching of minorities and consistent declarations by RSS of a Hindu Rashtra. The action on Art 370 which is the Courts of absence of due process and clamping of restrictions for 5 months, followed by CAA - NRC etc have piled up to fear among the minorities that all this is part of a sinister plan
What great wisdom led to disbanding the entire Iraqi army just to spend billions and lives to rebuild it?
Rumsfailed, Cheney, Wolfowitz, and the rest of the PNAC mafia did not want to share all the flowers and candy they expected to receive. But seriously, when Boy George dressed up in his little fly boy outfit and minced around for the sailor boys declaring the war was over, he actually believed it. Yes folks, he REALLY IS that STUPID.
Effect of removing teacher led prayer from schools?
In 1963 USA started to lose the war against the little guys in Vietnam; obviously a result of not praying hard enough in schools. JFK was shot in 1963; and a few extra prayers by the children might have deflected the bullet that killed him.
What has led the health care reform in America to be as important as it is?
You mean what led health care reform to be so important to OBAMA? That is because one of his family members died and did not have insurance (probably because they could not get a job) and he wanted to change it ever since he was shooting hoops in Chicago just 5 years ago. And would not ya know it. Now he is president and because that one family member died he is going to cause all working people to be effected drastically
Have machine learning and similar technologies resulted in the AI-led evolution of any real-world products?
This might not qualify, since the optimization algorithms probably don't really qualify as AI. Then again, there's always the complaint of AI researchers that "as soon as we're good at it, it's not AI anymore. It's just programming."I give you the F-117The shape was designed by algorithms to minimize radar back-reflections, earning its more colloquial name, the "stealth fighter. "Is the fact that it is made of a bunch of flat facets related to its stealth ability? Nope. At the time it was developed, the computers could only handle a relatively small number of flat surfaces at a time without bogging down for years. It looks like a low-poly game asset solely for the sake of the programs used to design it. As for me, I hold some software patents on using genetic algorithms for the design of microfluidic mixers. That's also somewhat questionable from the AI realm, but it definitely qualifies as evolution.Have machine learning and similar technologies resulted in the AI-led evolution of any real-world products?.
My friend thinks lightbulb filaments are made of led, can anyone help him?
light bulb filaments are not made of lead, but a thinly rolled piece of steel or aluminum. The electrical current is then drawn through the wire at a great resistance, thus producing light
what does "the irony will be that the Russians led us into a trap" mean?
"Well," JFK declared, "I think the irony will be that the Russians led us into a trap." Some trap. Just leave everything right out in plain sight. The use of "irony" is a sarcastic bit of understatement.
which is denser led or Styrofoam?
First of all the element i think you mean is lead, not led. Second there is no lead in pencils; its graphite. Third, the amount of material has nothing to do with density. For example the density of a liter of water is 1 and the density of a lake is 1. One molecule of iron is more dense than a than a swimming pool of h20. Since styrofoam floats in water its density is less than 1 and since graphite sinks in water its density is greater than 1 (same would go for lead).

how do led growlights work compared to hid,hps,lights,and what is used for a 4 by 4 room?
I have some 12 x 12 panels, 225 leds, that work great. I bought one of those UFOs, and it burned up my plants, same happened to my bro. Havent done a complete flower cycle with only 12 x 12 panels, but good for veggie cycle. Me and bro have both unpluged our UFOs. we had about 12 varieties beween us and all burned. were both gona buy HID a 250- 300w HPS would be good for 4 x 4 Craigs list often have them, depending where you live
If The Beatles had not led the British Invasion of the 1960's, who could have been the band that could have?
The "British Invasion" was a direct effect of The Beatles. So I firmly believe that without The Beatles, 60s pop/rock bands and singers from the UK never would have got the wide access to the US market.Obviously some of the best 60s bands and singers for sure would have charted high in Top US positions but most probably with less presence. Maybe the best proof is that today most of those glorious "invaders", which filled the top 20 of the 60s, are absolutely forgotten. Even some of the best are only known by a few.If you want an example ask how many hits of The Hollies, The Kinks, The Troggs etc which charted at top positions in the UK apart of their absolutely greatest, can be recognized and named by an average rock fan?One of the best proofs that being great in UK market is not the same as in the US is OASIS. They were formed in 1991, obviously too late to make it for the "British Invasion". They were a major part of 1990s UK pop culture, with more than 75 millions of albums sold, eight UK number-one singles and eight UK number-one albums. But only one single of Oasis, "Wonderwall", charted #8 in the US. Some of their greatest hits were not even released in the US.So all those "invaders"from the 60s probably never even would have been heard about in the US, were not it for The Beatles
