yeah, this isn't goodell's wife tweeting how handsome roger is and what a good job he's doing. this is ingratiated members of an organization leaking info and calling for players to be exploited. even if the org thinks he's cleared, it's a nightmare for player relations & FA

I feel like the 76ers had the oddest story of the season going with Markelle Fultz, then the Kawhi Leonard estrangement took the freak show spotlight away so the Sixers are responding with a chaos dunk.

This also indirectly implies that the "AI algorithms" didn't actually work correctly, because AI can for drat sure tell the difference between a husband and wife's writing styles. That cover story is almost definitely fake.

Most of his Disqus comments seem to be on articles from "The Sixers Sense". I think I also noticed the same thing in the tweets.

The Sixers Sense is the worst. It makes Liberty Ballers look like the NY Times. I follow every possible Sixers RSS feed (old skool) except that one. I haven't been back in a while, but it had articles that seemed to have been written by 6th graders. They were just long versions of bad Disqus comments. I'm appalled that this might be where the Colangelos chose to fight their twitter battles.

Nah. The algorithms only inferred that the accounts were of the same provenance, based on their liking patterns and tweets. Itís not like minority report. Bryanís account never actually tweeted anything.

The Ringer story said it was data analysis based on who was followed and certain linguistic quirks. I used to run a text analytics AI team and I can assure you it is not nearly as precise as you are making it out to be. Family members who share common follows and talk about the same topics with the same terminology would definitely score as very similar.

I still don't understand the psychosis of making multiple anonymous burner accounts to share the same general thoughts. A part of me wants to believe that Bryan just told his wife "Hey, that looks fun...make me an account on your phone so I can talk about Nerlens being a piece of poo poo when I get the itch too"

I'm not letting go of the idea this is a Colangelo family Murder on the Orient Express situation and everyone from Jerry to Bryan's son has a hand in it
