Citations for the Recode Handshake Debunking

Context

On February 7, a Recode journalist reached out with a request for comment that immediately raised my eyebrows.

  • I had context, and called it out on Twitter in advance here
  • Some back and forth ensued.
  • Here was the subsequent article (archive link).
  • And here was my response as a series of tweets.

Twitter didn’t have space to include citation links for each tweet in the response, so I’m doing that below.

After this point, I won’t keep linking the Recode piece, even though it is cited in many of the tweets below.

The whole thing can be summarized in a few tweets :)
