I HAVE GOUT

hot take: tavis and all the other bigshot security researchers should just be like "oh, trump doesn't like NORMS? how about we start dropping 0days with zero warning, on twitter, daily. after all... responsible disclosure is just something those Georgetown fucks at NIST thought up"

Dont understand the logic going through here. Seems to be:
-Trump is bad
-Tiwtter isnt banning trump
-Therefore we should unleash havoc on twitter

Or maybe relating to dropping 0days against government softwares. idk.

But I do agree that responsible discloser is poo poo. It's mostly socially-inept security dudes agreeing to do something because thats what everyone else is doing. And then u get a measly 4 figgies for your work. Good job.
OORRRR you could not do that. You can sell the exploit and get lotsa figgies. Or utilize it yourself (i.e. find a twitter bug and use it to make celebrititties tweet about a product ur selling with a link to your web. youll get mega bank that way). Theres hardly any reason to ever report security bugs.
