What was the architect thinking? – Swatiska BND floor plan hoax

without comments

Inspired by Travor Paglens latest pictures of Inteligence HQs released on The Intercept I took the liberty to make some slight photoshop modifications to a picture of the new BND HQ in Berlin. :)) The hoax tweet with the modified picture raised quickly a lot of attention, questions and doubts. Also the fake NYT url i added in the spirit of Fake URL trolling helped to get some fast retweets. :)) “Never hit RT before you ve seen the www!”

The picture was doubted by many users. Some of them took the effort to point out the fake. ..

…while others users were wondering  about the broken NYT link (which never existed) :))
