@RadicalEdward It's about time we started locking up all the facecriminals! Get your own face!

@RadicalEdward Aw, i can only read the headline, they want me to hand over identifying info to read the rest :<

@clarjon1 @RadicalEdward You can get around that by adding another period after the dot com: nytimes.com./2020/06/24/technology/facial-recognition-arrest.html

@locrian @RadicalEdward oooh neat trick. Also, disable javascript to prevent it from rewriting the page content

@RadicalEdward Let's hope that facial recognition is used less in the future, and that fewer cases of wrong matches occur.
