HOWTO: Report a retweet for Twitter abuse and advantages in doing so – contact me for password

I’ve found a multitude of benefits to reporting a retweet. While I really don’t think that much of an abuse ranking is given to a user who RT’s abusive Tweets there is a case to be made here and many other benefits to reporting a RT.

 

https://support.twitter.com/forms/abusiveuser?reported_username=

 

The only way I have found to report a RT is to use the URL above. In addition the only way I have found to obtain the Retweet ID is via the API.

 

Explained here

http://neworleanswatch.com/obtaining-text-file-of-tweets-for-twitter-abuse-reporting-or-other-uses/

 

 

  1. Overlapping use cases

You may want to build a case to suspend a user for an overlapping use case and prove it because they RT’ed a Tweet made from a different account of theirs

 

  1. Unintended consequence/side benefit of suspending original person who made the Tweet

 

You have an original attacker who is being abusive that you have reported but you are now reporting RT’s of the abusive Tweets. The person who is RT’ing is often also abusive but I have seen that my abuse report for the RT results in the suspension of the original account. Side note I have found that when you include multiple users Tweets on the same abuse report and all users have been reported under some case the unintended result is a suspension of one of the abusive users. On this note do not ever assume that a response from Twitter saying an account has been suspended makes it true, confirm yourself.

 

Recently I had a guy Tweet me from an account then RT those Tweets from his own. I had never seen the account before that he made the Tweet from but already had a case open for his account. His RT of his own account allowed me to get both suspended in one shot by reporting the RT’s and also calling attention to what he was doing.

 

  1. Grooming the Timeline

When you report a Tweet or a RT the Tweet is removed from your view. To expound when you are logged on to Twitter you view the users Tweets they will not appear, they do still appear to be in searches.

If I am being aggressive in reporting all abusive Tweets I am now going ahead and reporting the RT’s. It serves as a tracking method for me and easier for me to figure out which Tweets I reported.

 

  1. Account only Tweets RT’s and you need to make report on Tweets – self explained

 

Parsing out RT’s

 

Using tools that provide a log of sorts for Twitter accounts you may have to deal with data that contains a lot of RT’s. It may be desired to filter them out. You can do this programmatically at the time of data creation but I rather have the data available to me. If I am making a case for abuse I will go ahead and include the RT into the report as if it was a standard Tweet, after all it is just that. If I want to call out the report to contain RT’s specifically I will make a note such as the following:

 

Retweet ID of 83838383838838383 which is a RT of 8383838383883883 represented as a URL https://twitter

 

Or “note that the following Tweet ID’s or Retweet ID’s are represented as URL’s and the URL will resolve to the original Tweeter.

 

Use whatever type of tool you want I often just use findstr

 

findstr /V /c:”RT @” datasource.txt

 

/V above “Prints only lines that do not contain a match.”

 

Removing the /V would show only the lines that do contain a match

NOPD, LSP ANNOUNCE NEW HIGHWAY TRAFFIC SAFETY PARTNERSHIP

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
06/03/2015
NOPD, LSP ANNOUNCE NEW HIGHWAY TRAFFIC SAFETY PARTNERSHIP
NEW ORLEANS—Today, NOPD Superintendent Michael Harrison and Louisiana State Police Superintendent Col. Michael Edmonson announced a new partnership that will put LSP Troopers on New Orleans interstates to focus on traffic safety and enforcement. Through the Local Agency Compensated Enforcement (LACE) program, LSP Troopers will conduct traffic safety and enforcement on a detail basis on all New Orleans interstates and state highways. The new patrols started today.

“This new partnership will increase enforcement on traffic violations and improve safety on the road for all drivers,” said NOPD Superintendent Michael Harrison. “Our goal is to continue to reduce crashes and injuries and save more lives on the road. With more troopers helping our officers patrol the interstates, we will make it happen."

During these details, troopers will be stationed in areas that are known to experience accidents during high-traffic times. Drivers can expect to see troopers out on safety patrols actively enforcing speeding, apprehending impaired drivers and providing assistance to drivers who have been involved in accidents. The NOPD will support these enforcement efforts and provide backup units when necessary.

"Louisiana State Police is committed to assisting the New Orleans Police Department with enhancing the safety of the citizens and tourists in the City of New Orleans," said Colonel Mike Edmonson, Louisiana State Police Superintendent. "We have entered into a mutual contract with the City to extend our supplemental patrols to the New Orleans East area. Troopers assigned to this area will be targeting hazardous motorists and dangerous situations on the federal and state highways. Public safety is our top priority and we are working with NOPD to improve safety in Orleans Parish."

The City will reimburse LSP for the costs of providing the enforcement details.

The LACE program adds to the department’s on-going partnership with LSP to enhance public safety across the city. Earlier this year, LSP assigned a permanent contingent of troopers to patrol in the French Quarter and surrounding areas. LSP Troopers are permanently assigned to the New Orleans area to assist in handling investigations. And LSP provides additional manpower during special events throughout the year.

Harrison added, “I am happy to build on the strong partnership we have with the Louisiana State Police. Together, we will continue to provide strong public safety to every neighborhood in New Orleans.”

Explanation of Windows 2003 source code base compared with other releases

With the expiration of Windows 2003 Server almost here I wanted to geek out a bit and discuss in detail how it is supported or not by Microsoft and from a technical code perspective just what the product is.

 

Some background I did work for Microsoft as an escalation engineer for Windows and had local copies of the source code I supported. I think it is helpful to people to understand this concept in the context of understanding patches from Microsoft. I could go into great detail on the complexities on maintaining the code but this I feel gives a good quick idea.

 

First let’s explore a few product versions before and after Windows Server 2003.

Windows NT 4 – this product is the same client and server

Windows 2000 – this product is the same client and server

Windows XP – this is a client only product

Windows 2003 – This is a server only product

Windows Vista – client only

Windows 2008 – does not exist at RTM code base level

Windows 2008 SP1 / Vista SP1 project – this product is the same client and server / re-combined server and client again

Windows Server 2008 R2 / Windows 7 – this product is the same client and server

Windows 2012 / Windows 8 – this product is the same client and server

From a development and source code perspective the release name of a project matter very little to the development team it is simple codename client or codename server. The source code is all the same and combines both the client (desktop edition) and server editions (SKU’s) all in the same code.

Windows XP departed standard of having a combined code for the various SKU’s in order to product a product to ship sooner for the consumer market.

After the release of Windows Vista and with the release of its server side companion Windows Server 2008 Microsoft then again combined the code trees with an SP1 release.

Windows 2003 is significantly different from Windows 2008 SP1. Windows Vista SP1 and Windows 2008 SP1 are in fact the same thing at the source code level.

To maintain in current day the source code for Windows 2003 in order to support security patches for the masses is a very high price tag for Microsoft. Microsoft moves a step closer to only maintaining the single code base system the products were originally designed to have.

Once the products are built out or “compiled” various binary editions are created using specific development tools for the target platform and preprocessor directives in the combined source code.
