Amazon had a weird week on Twitter. But the union vote is the big news.

"Are being counted in bessemer alabama. This week from amazon warehouse workers hoping to unionize amazon has fought tooth and nail against the union efforts and also recently against members of congress senators bernie sanders and elizabeth warren criticized. Its treatment of employees amazon's official twitter account went on the attack so did some twitter users claiming they were very happy amazon employees and not all of them were real. Let's dig into all of this and quality assurance the segment where we take a deeper look at a big tech story. Jason delray covers amazon for recode. He says this union vote is big no matter what the outcome i also think. If it's a close loss that also would be seen as a positive sign just because amazon. Never had a union in the us that even in that case we'd see other efforts at least inside of amazon facilities in the country. A couple thousand people or more than thousand people voting to unionize at one facility. I mean think that says something especially with all the pressure that management has has put on these workers over the last few weeks. And then of course senators bernie sanders and elizabeth. Warren were criticizing amazon on twitter. For how it treats its employees and we saw amazon. Take what seems to be a priebke. New tack on social media hit-back pretty aggressively so what we saw was executives from dave clark. Who's the ceo of the worldwide consumer business at amazon to the corporate amazon accounts written by pr. People you know being both snarky. You know what. I think many people would say would be inappropriate tone. I reported that that directive to get more aggressive came directly from jeff bezos. After my story kind of exploded you see executives this week. Such as jay carney. He's been on twitter. The last two days responding to both bernie sanders and elizabeth

Yeah we plan is Jeff was right of course but on and we had said earlier we posted on our blog Si- colleague Michael former ambassador to the World Trade Organization who now works in our policy shop he wrote a blog was that laid out sort of the the guidelines that we are working under sort of the general principles and now we're going deeper into Russians about how this technology should be properly regularly regulated because we believe two things one is that like any new -nology it can be it can be used powerfully for good and potentially for ill and you WanNa make sure that you maximize the former and minimize the ladder and we were eager to work with lawmakers and regulators to find that balance you know I would note that with our service where the discussion is often around law enforcement use of it we have yet to have a report of abuse by law enforcement I didn't see if and when that happens that customer will be cut off from our service wherever we are in the process of regulations and legislation I mean ultimately the use by law enforcement agencies technology like like this just as was the case with DNA needs to have some guardrails around and those guardrails have to come ultimately from makers with the input of businesses I think so your specific input to them will deal at all with the issues or the questions of what whether or not facial recognition accurately identifies women and people of color well so we already we when we sell to law enforcement agencies we you are instruction to them is this technology should only be used in this use case with at the ninety nine percent certainty level and there have been taste I think somewhat disenchant it was tests of the of the technology that set the reliability level or the confidence level much lower but that's not how it's supposed to be used and that's not how law enforcement customers are very clearly told that the proper usage of this should be at the ninety nine percent confidence level and should always have human review again companies can't do that in the end because these government agencies governments have to policy-makers and legislators have legislate towards after were extremely concerned there was a lot of talk about how this would lead to big brother government over intrusion into our privacy.
