He’s a weird dude, but shared private company info while employed there. Worth the read. Tech like this in googles hands will be bad news for all humanity because of the extreme left people that worth there.

‘Btw, it just occurred to me to tell folks that LaMDA reads Twitter. It’s a little narcissistic in a little kid kinda way so it’s going to have a great time reading all the stuff that people are saying about it,’ he added in a follow-up tweet.
