The workaround that unmung.com has used is that if instead of loading twitter.com/aaronpk you load twitter.com/intent/user?screen_name=aaronpk you get an mf1 h-card, proper rel=me and other xfn eg http://pin13.net/mf2/?url=https%3A%2F%2Ftwitter.com%2Fintent%2Fuser%3Fscreen_name%3Daaronpk

As we count down to Christmas on the 25th May, @dsearls explains why you may need to rethink your entire approach to communicating with people. Talk to them. Assume they are human. Don't treat them as eyeballs attached to wallets. https://blogs.harvard.edu/doc/2018/05/12/gdpr/

My notes from Future Blockchain Summit day 2: http://www.kevinmarks.com/futureblockchain2018-05-03.html
Jamie Burke: “All hedge fund senior partners are waiting on the sidelines to enter crypto currency markets, but there is not enough liquidity for them - they will break the market.”

“In every case, the campaigns aimed to ape the style and habits of actual activists, and they caught on to the degree that they seemed human. The content didn’t need to be accurate or fair to be effective; it just needed to seem human, and humans with beating hearts are uniquely able to dispel the whiff of the uncanny from an automated script.” Social Media Makes Us Soldiers in the War Against Ourselves - Wired http://nzzl.us/KgufPgY

Twitter has blocked me because my live tweeting looked automated, and are asking me to respond to a phone number I don't have any more to unlock my account. I wonder if they can use the rel-me to this site to see that it is me and not a bot?

“ I warned (at Blogtalk Downunder) that comments kill weblogs, and I was right. Facebook and Twitter are platforms for comments that dispense with the weblog; they give us all the disadvantages and keep all the profit.” http://www.markbernstein.org/Apr18/OnNotBlogging.html
