If you’re a foreigner traveling into or out of the United States, US Customs and Border Protection wants to see your social media accounts. If my Twitter account is any indication, they are in for a dumb, boring time.
Secret’s out, readers: we know you don’t read our stuff. You just look at our headlines and share our links, but you don’t click on our stories. You don’t read our words. Do you care about us at all?!
The It Gets Better Project is maybe Dan Savage’s most ingenious creation, and that’s really saying something given that I’m referring to the man who made Rick Santorum’s last name synonymous with a frothy mix of lube and fecal matter. The initiative Savage formulated in 2010 with his husband Terry Miller in the wake…
“Hey lil’ mama, can I buy Twitter for a few million?” is a thing that Google co-founder Larry Page might have said to Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey. But Page reportedly whispered an offer to acquire Twitter into Dorsey’s ear in a closed-blinds meeting a few years ago.
Once, emoji was just emoji. Now it’s another way for businesses to look into our souls—er, feeds—and see if we might like to buy something. Twitter is rolling out a new feature that lets advertisers target people who have tweeted a specific emoji.
In 1997, when Guy Fieri and three of his friends released hit single “Walkin’ on the Sun,” they knew they’d finally made it. What they didn’t know, however, was that they’d be beating anonymous Twitter eggs over the head with this fact for the rest of their lives. This is Smash Mouth’s burden.
Another day, another report that your social-media password could now be for sale on the dark web: a hacker claims to be selling 32 million Twitter log-ins. Twitter, on the other hand, says it wasn’t even hacked and that the information probably comes from other leaks and people using the same password for everything.
Tweets are mysterious things. They’re sometimes witty, usually banal, and often garbage. But if you’re Elon Musk, your tweets can have a very real impact on how companies are valued. For instance, one tweet from Musk last night wiped out $580 million from Samsung SDI’s market capitalization. No joke.
A truck collided with two other vehicles on a busy North Carolina highway today, upending a swarm of bees onto the road, and trapping at least one news photographer in his car. And every single tweet that local news station WBTV posted about this situation is a gem.
First the hackers came for Katy Perry. Now they’ve come for someone who should know better than to use the same password on multiple sites: Mark Zuckerberg. Turns out he’s as dumb as the rest of us.
Twitter and Yahoo executives recently met to discuss a possible merger but, by all accounts, the meeting was pretty lopsided. Sources told the New York Post that Yahoo chief Marissa Mayer was there, but Twitter chief executive Jack Dorsey didn’t even show up. Twitter dropped out of the bidding process shortly…
It’s finally happened: There are more people snapping than there are tweeting. According to a new report from Bloomberg, Snapchat has 150 million daily active users, compared to Twitter’s less than 140 million users. Ouch.
Twitter parody accounts are the second worst thing on Earth. What’s the worst thing? When Twitter shuts down parody accounts because they might offend public figures. That’s what Twitter has been doing recently with accounts that poke fun at Russian politicians, such as @DarthPutinKGB. And the American government…
Our homes are our safe places. We don’t really expect to find mysterious objects in our homes, but one London woman took to Twitter to figure out what the hell just fell out of her chimney.
Are those long pages filled with words getting to you while at church? Maybe you’ll benefit from a new version of the Bible that’s made from emojis.
If you’re gonna try to roast the Spelling Bee for being soft, the worst sin you can commit is bringing that weak shit (noun: substandard effort or soft response, e.g. “Kevin liked the Warriors, but they lost because they brought that weak shit.”).
Twitter just announced that @mentions, pictures, and quoted tweets won’t count towards the 140-character limit, meaning twitter users can now fit more vitriolic garbage and faux-intellectualism into a single tweet. Twitter says the change will roll out in a few months. As social media becomes clogged with gifs and…
Over the past four days, some Twitter users have been noticing something strange: a flurry of tweets that appear to depict a young person removing their underwear.
