The Internet Archive discovers and captures web pages through many different web crawls.
At any given time several distinct crawls are running, some for months, and some every day or longer.
View the web archive through the Wayback Machine.
Content crawled via the Wayback Machine Live Proxy mostly by the Save Page Now feature on web.archive.org.
Liveweb proxy is a component of Internet Archive’s wayback machine project. The liveweb proxy captures the content of a web page in real time, archives it into a ARC or WARC file and returns the ARC/WARC record back to the wayback machine to process. The recorded ARC/WARC file becomes part of the wayback machine in due course of time.
Where do I begin?
Some disclaimers are in order.
1.) I disavow anyone who uses this thread to harass people.
2.) I'm aware that the subject matter I am going to talk about enters "conspiracy territory." I'll walk that fine line and do my best not to wander too far into that.pic.twitter.com/WvfcVVuEL7
In an earlier thread I simply asked if there was public interest in discussing the role of the banks in regards to the Patreon situation.
The results were significantly overwhelming in favor of that.
I'm operating under the impression that the same applies here. Again.pic.twitter.com/RXUXq724CZ
Someone tweeted this to me earlier. @nicholatian says what we need to work with is concrete evidence, first and foremost.
And I agree. So I'll review what we know so far as it applies to Patreon/Mastercard.pic.twitter.com/xCMOCiwTzk
In this thread I want to flesh out the political agenda of Mastercard. In doing so, spotlighting the company's aims in regards to deplatforming.
How did Mastercard get here?

Let's tackle the elephant in the room. Every time "IN-CLUE-SION" is preached? There's the other side of that coin.
It honestly makes Ann Cairns look like a flaming hypocrite.
BECAUSE she's in a position at Mastercard to dictate company policy.pic.twitter.com/IAxw5U738T
5.) Mastercard company policy is this:
"Any political activities in which Mastercard engages are based solely upon the best interests of the Company and are made without regard to the private political preferences of its officers and/or executives"
As 2015 unfolded you can see Mastercard more fully take on the "financial inclusion" mantle. They attempt to make it more broad and not limit to their business interests in Africa which inspired this agenda in the first place.pic.twitter.com/26epgCzs1H
By September 2015, Mastercard got the WORLD BANK involved. http://archive.is/hR4dc
We'll return to the involvement of other groups more directly later, but just to give you a sense of how fast this ECONOMIC ideology was adopted.pic.twitter.com/khrifJAnhg
NO. God damn it. No.
We'll get there. Eventually. But you're jumping too hard ahead.
Right now I'm going over how Mastercard's company policy grew political in it's nature, and how that was tied to economic reasons.pic.twitter.com/XlUhy7KBSV
And it's at this point we see "financial inclusion" begin to include DISTRUST. Aka "outsiders" that get excluded.
This all under the mantra that progressive ideology like modern feminism is gonna make the world "RICHER."pic.twitter.com/H9OTHKUfgn
