Motion granted to subpoena Twitter over posts about Whitmer kidnapping plot

Lawyers for five people charged in plot to kidnapping Gov. Gretchen Whitmer have approval from a judge to subpoena Twitter for information on a specific account appearing to have tweeted about the Michigan investigation before anything was ever public.

In the motion filed in federal court, lawyers maintain that the Twitter account, @ravagiing, is tied to FBI Special Agent Jayson Chambers who worked the kidnapping plot case. In the motion filed, lawyers detailed multiple tweets, including one from December 2019 before the plot was ever underway which the account tweets “Michigan I got my eyes on you. Remember this tweet.”

Since Buzzfeed News broke the story on the tweets and the connection to Chambers, the account has scrubbed the Michigan related tweets and changed up its bio.

At one point the bio read CEO of Exeintel, which is an LLC registered in New Mexico with a mailing address at a UPS store in Clarkston, Michigan.

It bills it self as an online security firm that detects and deters threats. The motion says Exeintel is Chambers’ company, and the lawyers have many questions.

Lawyers maintain the feds entrapped their clients and the subpoena is an attempt to bolster that claim.

After unveiling several features this year, micro-blogging site Twitter is reportedly readying new features, including Reactions, Downvotes and Sorted Replies for iOS users.

According to reverse engineer Nima Owji, the Reactions feature, which started being tested a couple of months ago, is set to launch soon, reports 9To5Mac.

With four new reactions, “tears of joy,” “thinking face,” “clapping hands” and “crying face,” this feature is designed to give users the ability to better show how conversations make them feel and to give users “a better understanding of how their Tweets are received”.

Citing the reverse engineer, the report also mentioned that the micro-blogging site is now able to store data about the downvotes feature, which is another indicator that this function will be released sooner rather than later.

The report also notes that the company changed the downvote position as well. It has even added a new tab explaining how downvotes work.

This month, the company has rolled out its in-app tipping feature to all Android users above the age of 18, following the iOS launch in September.

Twitter said the “Tips” feature is geared toward users looking to get a little financial support from their followers through Cash App, PayPal, Venmo and Patreon directly through the app.

Twitter Support has acknowledged a bug causing unexpected account logouts on iOS 15, promising that its teams are working on a fix and that it’ll keep users updated on when it’s resolved.

Twitter Feature

Posts on Twitter over the last several hours have shown users experiencing the bug, with some sharing frustrations that the app is requiring them to log back into Twitter upon every app launch. While some of the reports lack the specificity that the bug is happening on iOS devices, it seems likely to be the case following the acknowledgment from Twitter itself.
