Message to INFODIO readers: investigative journalism, which is what this site does, takes lots of time. Time is money. Regular visitors from banks' compliance departments, academia, business intelligence, and law enforcement are encouraged to donate generously to our efforts. Visiting media looking for a quick run down on Venezuela's gargantuan corruption, have the decency to at least cite the source when plagiarising this site's content without attribution (exhibit Reuters here). To all readers, do the right thing, the honest thing: support independent investigative journalism, help us expose rampant corruption.

Twitter blocks @alekboyd, censors information on rampant corruption.

It seems that for Twitter, some users are more equal than others, some private information is more equal than other. Some telephone numbers are more equal than others... I remember vividly the break into my apartment, threats to my children, theft of laptops and pictures obtained through illegal surveillance that lasted months, and that were posted on Twitter, without problem. I remember the impersonation in Twitter accounts depicting me as a racist, and baseless defamation that followed suggesting as I was pedophile. I remember the time it took to try and reason with Twitter, on the need to remove such information.

Boda Patricia Alvarado - Manuel Tamayo

I recently posted details of a wedding (picture above). One of those lavish celebrations paid for with stolen public funds by utterly corrupt -and wanted- Javier Alvarado. The corrupt, it seems, took issue with Twitter (see below), and Twitter caved.
