Busted! Facebook Bug Reveals Greta Thunberg’s Posts Are Written by Her Father

Wired Magazine reports that, for several hours last Thursday night, a bad code update erroneously allowed Facebook users to see exactly which accounts were posting to Facebook pages.

For example, celebrities, politicians, businesses, and blogs often open a Facebook page that “isn’t tied to an individual profile. The accounts behind those pages are anonymous unless a Page owner opts to make the admins public. But a bug that was live from Thursday evening until Friday morning allowed anyone to easily reveal the accounts running a Page, essentially doxing anyone who posted to one.”

The edit histories of anonymous Facebook pages contained the names and profile pictures of everyone who added to a particular page.

Because this problem wasn’t fixed for many hours, eventually some users discovered they had access to this otherwise unavailable information. It didn’t take long before screenshots of the edit histories of popular pages made their way to several social media sites. According to Wired:

" Facebook says the bug was the result of a code update that it pushed Thursday evening. It’s not something most people would have encountered on their own, since it took navigating to a Page, viewing an edit history, and realizing that there shouldn’t be a name and profile picture assigned to edits to exploit it. Still, despite the Friday morning fix, screenshots circulated on 4chan, Imgur, and social media appearing to show the accounts behind the official Facebook Pages of the pseudonymous artist Banksy, Russian president Vladimir Putin, former US secretary of state Hillary Clinton, Canadian prime minister Justin Trudeau, the hacking collective Anonymous, climate activist Greta Thunberg, and rapper Snoop Dogg, among others.

Facebook points out that no information beyond a name and public profile link were available, but that information isn’t supposed to appear in the edit history at all. And for people, say, running anti-regime Pages under a repressive government, making even that much information public is plenty alarming. -Wired"

The edit history for Greta Thunberg’s page shows that the content has actually been written by her father, Svante Thunberg, and Adarsh Prathap, a climate activist in India who serves as a delegate at the UN’s Climate Change organization.

Figureheads are generally empty and useful only so long as the people behind the curtain remain hidden.

Well she's so intellectual that obviously she writes her own posts. I mean she's woke right? Yes this is child abuse, they painted this picture of death and destruction for her and she's now fully brainwashed into it. Thus she will never have a good life outside of the one she's been given. She can't see the realities of this world because she's a SJW.

It was probably what we all expected, given that she wouldn't sit for an interview or a debate to answer probing questions. No surprise there.

This reminds me of an episode of The Golden Girls where Rose was requested to speak at a Russian special event because she sent a letter about them and us getting along and it was so sweet and innocent sounding, they thought she was a little girl.

So does Greta have to give back her awards?

Maybe at least the mural in San Fran needs to be changed to feature her dad or the Indian commentator.

Greta Thunberg is a 17 year old Swedish girl who is claimed to be a climate change activist but who in reality has been cruelly manipulated by her parents for their own nefarious purposes.
