    Applied statistics and data science and engineering is nice emerging field of technology to expose the hypocrisy going on the so-called "social media" (in reality propaganda media) outlets such as Twitter, Facebook, BBC etc. in the name of "spread of free expression" which in reality is a "spread of engineered expression" using advanced software algorithms. BBC (britain pos) and VOA (US) are just doing the dirty work on the request of Gangus of india so that Gangus of india don't come in the limelight during any kind of data mining.

    I hope LEAs are watching.

    I have 2GB of data which i am yet to release. It has a whole different spectrum of information.

    We have developed a list of every influencer who started and pushed trends and then in order to wipe their footprints deleted their tweets.

    Little did they know that they were being intercepted the whole time.

    Do not be naive.

    One cannot identify these streams without access to social media platforms in question. Draconian cyber laws is not the way forward.

    Best course of action is to expose counterproductive narrative-building efforts with good homework, and let the state agencies decide.

    Why waste time and energy in exposing, just eliminate the tool which mofos use for propaganda.

    That is old fashioned thinking of 20th century when communication technology was minimal and not advanced/sophisticated like in 21st century.

    You want poor Pakistani state to keep wasting precious money on the BS of "counterproductive narrative-building" when it is begging every other country and international financial institution for its financial survival.

    He thinks Pakistan is one super "rich" country with enormous amounts of money and manpower to be wasted on "building endless counter narratives."

    Bro, you are alluding to a simpleton thought process which is not feasible in practice. Pakistan will have to shut down everything media-related otherwise because propaganda and narrative-building are very common. And what about state-driven brainwashing? WE strive for a democratic environment or a totalitarian environment?

    Learn from the fate of USSR - totalitarian environments do not endure for long-term.

    Relevant state agencies are responsible for keeping tabs on counterproductive narrative-building efforts, and this is a full-time responsibility much like government itself. If relevant state agencies are too preoccupied than create Think Tanks for the needful - an industry in itself.

    See above.

    Nothing gets done without "money" and pakistan doesn't have it to waste on so-called "democratic endless counter narrative building BS". And money doesn't grow on trees. And no one gives a damn about demoncratic BS in pakistani society.

    There is lot of money in Pakistan, you are speaking in sheer ignorance.

    Do you think that Horus's work is really expensive? It is not. You only need to understand the work-processes and tools involved.

    Those who don't create "wealth" think that it grows on the trees, you have probably been in institutions all your life which only consume money/wealth but don't create money/wealth. I can clearly notice the freebee consumer mindset.

    I don't think banning facebook, twitter is unfeasible, these platforms are waste of time and lethal tools of propaganda. For media, I said "legislate strong libel laws" and ban those who don't want to honor those laws of land - It's not blanket ban but making media accountable where currently media can get away with every bullshit. So, it's not asking for totalitarian environment but responsible reporting.

    Making thing viral, creating trends based on robot accounts and paid people isn't big thing, why waste time and resources to counter everything on internet. If sewage pipe is leaked, you don't just keep cleaning and using air-fresheners to counter filth and bad smell, you will first plug the leakage.

    What is the primary source of revenue generation? PRODUCTIVITY (To do something).

    How is not doing anything and/or banning communication tools productive? Do you think that social media platforms do not have productive uses and/or not stimulating productivity by making entrepreneurship convenient? These tools are increasingly important for research as well.

    What about tweets of Imran Khan or ISPR? How about closing these first?

    Apply common sense please - very important for thinking clearly.

    This is the kind of mindset that has ruined pakistan in the last 70 years and will keep ruining it if it remains intact in state power corridors.
