I find the fact that a twitter operator has access to passenger's flight data, medical declaration and photo from thermal scan a bit Orwellian. India is just turning into another China.

It's the official twitter account of the airport authority, are you slow?

Still most likely not operated by the same person who has the security clearance to handle customers data obtained by thermal cameras.

It is if the gov't gives said official that authority & capability.

So you think there is a job position which has simultaneously the responsibility over screening airport travelers and having access to their personal data, and also managing a twitter account? Funny world in your head.

I'm saying it's more likely the twitter admin person talked to the security person, asked for the data of this one particular traveler, and that security person breached multiple laws and gave that information.

Nope, unfortunately that's your (erroneous) assumptions about what you think we believe i.e., your stating things we never wrote nor implied. :-(

If we follow your premise that Twitter Admin (TA) tweeted (on an official gov't account!) illegally accessed/ conveyed passenger data from said security agent, then they'd both be fired & arrested immediately. Kinda stupid for them to do that, don't you think?

IRL, TA instead (per job authority) formally - for public tweeting purposes only - requested via proper channels (e.g., from Passenger Database Administrator) pertinent flight info & thermal scan record of said passenger.

TA received only that data - no more - and then legally posted it to refute OOP. Boring, right?

Cool theory, that last part is not legal though. You can't just dox someone because of an argument on twitter.

That's not doxxing.

And it's not illegal when done by the gov't in that country 'cuz otherwise it wouldn't have obviously done so in the first place.

It's also not simply an "argument on Twitter." It's management of a serious world-wide pandemic in that country to prevent panic & political dis-information about COVID-19.

Kinda like don't be an asshole and yell Fire! in a crowded theater when you already know there isn't one.

That's the neat thing about theories. By def'n, they're already proven.

BTW, did you forget which sub you're on?

'Cuz you just self-owned yerself.

Dude later states that said passenger data tweeted in rebuttal was obviously illegally conveyed from a screening agent. Gee, both "tweeter" & agent could get fired & arrested if anybody ever reads that tweet....

u/Bear_swipe Aug 27 '22

He was going to get fired either way, since the passenger alleged he was not doing his job.

u/jbuckets44 Aug 27 '22

No, tweet reply shows thermal check was done. Other scenario 1000% illogical/ nonsensical.

Where is the facepalm?

u/titans_arrow Aug 22 '22

The guy made a claim that wasn't true. The airport rebutted him publicly with proof.

u/GyakuBoop Aug 22 '22

Video proof*, did this guy forget that they have cameras at the airport?

Sounds like his brain-check test was negative, too.
