It’s been 4 days and the #AskJPM hashtag doesn’t seem to slow down. Here is a compilation of some other creative Tweets:

Best of #AskJPM

So, it all started with a proposal from JPMorgan on twitter (yes, the JP Morgan from the foreclosures, lobbying, bribery and corruption) for a small Q&A session, where they supposedly were trying to connect with the public.

Seemingly they forgot they are part of the problem. Or perhaps, they thought we forgot they were one of the agents responsible for bringing the world’s economy down to its knees, exploiting the poor and buying politicians for profits and 7 figure bonuses at the end of the year. Well, the public made themselves heard well enough. At the time of this post I believe it’s been a never ending stream of twitter posts (I believe should be close to 30.000 now) for 30+ hours of trolling, payback and candid sentiments of repulsion. Here is a compilation of the best:

Some considered the PR stunt to have gone horribly wrong. I have to disagree. I believe most people found it extremely amusing and we can’t but wait for them to post another one of these soon enough.

One Thousand Nine Hundred and Eighty Four

The US Government has turned the Internet into something it was never intended to be: a system for spying on us in our most private moments. By tapping Internet cables, undermining security standards, and getting our data from companies in secret, the National Security Agency has built the largest surveillance apparatus in history and is collecting information on most Internet users.

This is a watershed moment for our freedom to live our lives and the privacy to be who we are. With NSA surveillance programs, the US Government now has the power to arbitrarily track, target, and go after any one of us — our friends, family, the journalists and activists we depend on — because they don’t like our ideas. In a world without privacy, anything you’ve written, done, or seen can be used against you, making your life a nightmare. Spying IS censorship. Now that we know, WE decide what happens next.

The Four Horsemen

The Four Horsemen is an independent feature documentary which lifts the lid on how the world really works.

As we will never return to ‘business as usual’ 23 international thinkers, government advisors and Wall Street money-men break their silence and explain how to establish a moral and just society.

The Four Horsemen is free from mainstream media propaganda — the film doesn’t bash bankers, criticise politicians or get involved in conspiracy theories. It ignites the debate about how to usher a new economic paradigm into the world which would dramatically improve the quality of life for billions.

“It’s Inside Job with bells on, and a frequently compelling thesis thanks to Ashcroft’s crack team of talking heads — economists, whistleblowers and Noam Chomsky, all talking with candour and clarity.” – Total Film

“Four Horsemen is a breathtakingly composed jeremiad against the folly of Neo-classical economics and the threats it represents to all we should hold dear.”
– Harold Crooks, The Corporation (Co-Director) Surviving Progress (Co-Director/Co-Writer)

Internet Rising, The Gift Of The Internet

Internet Rising is a 53 minute documentary covering the concept of the Internet as a social interaction tool that allow us to access an infinite amount of knowledge which can be used for efficient, unbounded cooperation, in every field of human knowledge, if we wish and allow ourselves to use it for this purpose. Since only our minds, our consciousness is present in the internet, all energy is focused in the mental work which provides, one might say, a form of purer connection where one is present as 100% as himself.

Internet Rising present us the gift of the Internet as the sum of all human consciousness, knowledge, development and, who knows, even freedom.
