Teachers union pres promotes service to scrub teachers' social media history

"...this powerful tool that scans your social media to catch forgotten posts that may not reflect who you are today."

Randi Weingarten, president of the American Federation of Teachers, offered a new artificial intelligence-powered tool to teachers to help erase their social media history, and she noted that AFT members get a discount.

Weingarten wrote in a tweet, "Our union is here for you to help you future-proof your social media. @AFTunion has partnered w/LifeBrand for a 25% discount off the cost of this powerful tool that scans your social media to catch forgotten posts that may not reflect who you are today."

She also posted a link to the union’s website which promoted the tool that searches through a person's social media history to find potentially "harmful posts" and closed comments on the tweet

According to the website, "LifeBrand scans your social media (currently covers Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and TikTok) to quickly find potentially harmful posts and then guides you to edit or delete those posts—forever!  The system scans text, emojis, images, video and sound in both English and Spanish," the website stated.

The website noted that top AFT officials have used the AI-powered tool.

The website also quoted AFT Secretary-Treasurer Fedrick C. Ingram who said, "In the course of 15 years I know I’ve changed, and so has my social media presence. It was a great opportunity to take a stroll down memory lane. While I found some things that gave me pause, in the end, I believe my social media history reflects both who I was then and who I am today. It was good to know that if I found something that others might use for negative purposes that I could delete it with one keystroke." 

Jeff Freitas, president of the California Federation of Teachers, also promoted the tool, saying "Having been on social media for over a decade posting over a thousand times, I felt relieved to have my historical posts checked for what could be a misunderstanding or typo like in texting."

In the past, teachers and schools have been called out for their social media posts by parents and pundits. Libs of TikTok, and other social media accounts have gone digging into educators' social media, and exposed those who promote LGBTQ lifestyles, anti-whiteness, and anti-parent ideas. Many educators have then come under fire or been terminated after public backlash.

During the pandemic, a Chicago Teachers Union board executive posted selfies of her Caribbean vacation while issuing tweets telling teachers not to return to school, claiming it was unsafe for them to go back to work.

There are numerous examples including one cited by Fox News about a teacher in Washington state who complained on Twitter that many schools’ "guidelines and laws" haven’t helped them keep students' information secret from "Christo-fascist" parents.

Auburn School District teacher Karen Love responded to another tweet that urged parents to check their school district’s policy regarding keeping info about their child’s secret from them saying, "Parents-check your school districts’ policy regarding keeping info about YOUR child secret from you. There are some scary policies out there. Schools should not have a right to keep info about your child from you unless abuse by you is suspected. There I said it and mean it.”

Love replied, "I cannot disagree with this more. So many students are not safe in this nation from their Christo-fascist parents. And our guidelines and laws haven’t caught up with this."
