In the AMI letters I publish, you will see the exact details of their extortionate suggestion: They will publish the personal images unless Gavin de Becker and I make the specific false public statement to the press that "has no knowledge or basis to suggest that AMI's coverage was politically motivated or influenced by political forces."
Instead of publishing this as a JPEG of text, he used Medium.
Medium, the open platform and publisher on the web, is a blog-like platform that has sustained and innovated in social media. With 90 million unique monthly visitors, it has maintained relevance as a goal for open letters, petitions, and personal essays. But it hardly sparks such frenetic reactions as it did on Thursday night.
Posten became viral, and Medium was soon in a great news story.
In a statement, a medium spokeswoman said the site did not have "I knew Mr. Bezos would publish the post.
Vlad Savov ( tweet ):
But what stood out for me Just because it was not noticed or recognized, the role that Twitter played in the explosive news moment was that if Bezos dropped a bomb, Twitter exclaimed and catalyzed the explosion.
The anatomy of the Bezos description was simple, he chose Medium as the container of his thoughts – perhaps as a neutral alternative to writing in the Washington Post he owns – but the path that everyone followed to come to Medium was via his tweet . No journalist became casual surfing Medium's "Combative Blog Posts from the Multibillionaires" section and accidentally stumbled across it. Nobody could even have been sure it was Bezos just by looking at the blog entry in insulation. Twitter was both the trigger of awareness of the record's existence and the first step of verifying its legitimacy.
Here's a detail I would like to see anyone reporting on this story identify: what kind of text messaging was Bezos exchanging with Lauren Sanchez? […] This means that SMS is not encrypted. iMessage is not only encrypted, but end-to-end encrypted. If, as Bezos investigator apparently thinks, Bezo's phone was not compromised, it means that either the Sanchez phone was compromised or the messages were intercepted in transit.
I'm not sure if Bezos is using an iPhone (and thus has access to iMessage).
Jeff Bezos' brother & # 39; lover, Lauren Sanchez, gave the couple's quick lyrics to National Enquirer, several sources in AMI, tabloid's parent company, The Daily Beast told.
Of course he denies this. But if it was true, he could have got them through physical access to the Sanchez phone, or directly from her, without having to catch anything. So maybe there is a technical angle to this story, but maybe not.
