In 2014, @FredCyrusRoeder@twitter.com and some friends showed up to counter the taxi industry's protest of Ridesharing in Berlin. This is actually where the idea of the @ConsumerChoiceC@twitter.com begun.

Fast forward this idea has turned into 10+ staff and numerous policy wins around the world!

Reject qualified immunity. Get this officer to jail immediately.

RT @StephenSeanFord@twitter.com

A cop flipped over a pregnant woman's car because she didn't pull over quick enough.

Not only is what she did not wrong, it's what you're supposed to do: turning on hazards to indicate you're complying and pulling over at the next safe place to do so...

This man is still a cop.

As I mentioned on @ConsumerCRadio@twitter.com, I don't shed a tear for the rental car industry and the "nationwide car shortage".

They've poured millions into trying to block innovative competitors like @turo@twitter.com and @Getaround@twitter.com

Great piece by @EricBoehm87@twitter.com on this


Now that I’m back in Austria, have to be prepared to say before all social and commerce situations “ich bin vollständig geimpft” — or show them the vax pass, which hurts my North American sensibilities

Activism done right. Flavors matter. Harm reduction works.

We cannot cede the important public health victories that vaping has provided us.

Folks who were navel-gazing on the COVID vaccine IP waiver wanted to make sure middle and low-income countries didn't get left out. These actions are more powerful and effective than completely dismantling vital intellectual property protections and forced tech transfer

This is way better than waiving IP rights on vaccines. Big step forward wsj.com/articles/u-s-to-donate

all the more reason for smart consumer privacy laws

TikTok's US privacy policy now says the app may collect biometric identifiers like faceprints or voiceprints from its users' content, and will ask for permission where required by law. One problem? Only a few US states have biometric privacy laws today. techcrunch.com/2021/06/03/tikt
