Twitter is Identifying White Supremacist Neo-Nazi Marchers (And You Can Help)

David Brown of Plymouth Mass. sends a message during a protest Sunday held in response to a white nationalist rally that spiraled into deadly violence in Charlottesville Va. the day before

In the case of Cole White, one of the first marchers to be identified in the Charlottesville rally, being outed on the internet had a direct effect on his employer.

One of the photos it examined was from a previous Trump rally, not the Charlottesville march or rally. Far-right groups accused the anonymous person behind the account of "doxxing", a term that means unearthing and publishing private information on the internet-which this technically isn't.

Thousands of demonstrators, including members of the KKK, clashed with counter-protesters in Charlottesville on Saturday, before a auto was deliberately driven into the crowd, killing a woman. The photo was indeed of Salads wearing a Nazi armband, not to exalt Adolf Hitler per se, but for the equally stupid objective of trying to prove Donald Trump's supporters aren't racists. This was used to justify the attempted genocide of Indigenous people across the Americas, concurrent to the enslavement of millions of Africans and before the invasions of India and China, to name two places.

James Fields Jr., who attended the nationalist rally, allegedly drove his auto into a crowd of counterprotesters on Saturday, killing Heather Heyer, a 32-year-old woman, and injuring 19 others. "I have friends who went to Charlottesville to counter-protest the Nazis, and once I saw the news of the vehicle incident it was very worrying until I was able to get in touch with them and confirm they were safe". Followers have been exploding in number since the events in Charlottesville, and are paying a monthly fee on Patreon to fund the activities. Top Dog did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

David Clinton Wills, a visiting Professor at NYU who follows social media, says he's actually troubled by the way that anti-racist activists are using Twitter. That can lead to false identification by law enforcement, a significant problem in general, but more significant for black communities already under greater surveillance than white ones.

Cuba: Canadian diplomat struck by headaches and hearing loss
According to the Canadian national broadcaster, the government is working with Cuban authorities to determine what happened. President Trump has criticized the reopening of diplomatic relations with Cuba, calling it "a completely one-sided deal".

Joey Salads has built a YouTube career out of similar prank videos. He wasn't at the rally.

Now that the world knows his name, a Twitter account purported to belong to Cvjetanovic claims he is, "Changing the world for the better".

Quinn was not misidentified on Smith's @YesYoureRacist account, but Smith had to issue a correction after misidentifying another demonstrator. Peter Cvjetanovic was exposed after a photo of him at the UVA campus rally went viral, becoming synonymous with the anger and hatred of the so-called alt-right, a group attempting to re-insert racism and anti-Semitism into America's conservative movement.

Cole White, who worked for the Top Dog fast-food restaurant in Berkeley, California, no longer works there after being identified by @YesYoureRacist as part of the demonstrations. "The actions of those in Charlottesville are not supported by top dog", the sign reads. After consulting with law enforcement, the office of student conduct, and the university's attorneys, he said, "there is no constitutional or legal reason to expel him from our university or to terminate his employment".

One of those identified in Charlottesville as a result of Smith's efforts was Cvjetanovic, 20, a student at the University of Nevada in Reno.
