The Alt-Lite Is Imploding By Reinhard Wolff | Something amazing is taking place. Over the last few weeks, we have witnessed the Alt-Lite begin to unravel. First, Baked Alaska, a prolific Twitter personality and pro-Trump rapper, was removed from the "DeploraBall" at Mike Cernovich’s behest for discussing Jewish influence. We have since seen Paul Joseph Watson, Cernovich, and Bill Mitchell attempt to distance themselves from the Alt-Right – a label with which, ironically, they used to identify. In fact, Mike Cernovich and Bill Mitchell have even deleted previous tweets praising the Alt-Right or, in Mike’s case, opposing White genocide.

Attention Ecology: Trend Circulation and the Virality Threshold Abstract This article demonstrates the use of data mining methodologies for the study and research of social media in the digital humanities. Drawing from recent convergences in writing, rhetoric, and DH research, this article investigates how trends operate within complex networks. Through a study of trend data mined from Twitter, this article suggests the possibility of identifying a virality threshold for Twitter trends, and the possibility that such a threshold has broader implications for attention ecology research in the digital humanities. This article builds on the theories of Jacques Derrida, Richard Lanham, and Sidney Dobrin to suggest new theories and methodologies for understanding how attention operates within complex media ecologies at a macroscopic level.

In our case a large upload could take 1 or 2 hours. Additionally we had "session settings" that should be preserved after upload. 1) You might want review those ini entries: * session.gc_maxlifetime * max_input_time * max_execution_time * upload_max_filesize * post_max_size
