If you’ve got a suspicion someone else has gained access to your social media accounts, it’s not difficult to check—and it could mean you’re able to apply a password change before any real damage happens. In fact, it’s worth checking these options regularly just to be sure your Facebook and Twitter accounts are…
In theory, Twitter’s blue “verified” check mark made it harder to impersonate famous people, but in practice it mostly showed who was famous enough to bother impersonating. Prepare for the badge of approval to stop mattering as much now that Twitter has opened up its once-mysterious verification process to everyone.
Last night, Melania Trump, wife of The Donald, delivered a speech during the first night of the Republican National Convention. But soon after, some people began questioning whether Melania or her speechwriters had in fact copied part of Michelle Obama’s 2008 Democratic National Convention speech. CNN reported on the…
Like his wife, Donald Trump has never written all of his own material, but with his recent “professional” hires, it’s been harder than ever to tell which tweets actually come from the Donald himself. So we decided to make it easier. Meet @RealRealDonaldTrump—your only source for pure, unfiltered Trump tweets just the…
In a perfect world, Leslie Jones would’ve spent her Monday celebrating the release of her new childhood-ruining movie, Ghostbusters: Attack of the Feminmiminismsists, but instead she’s putting up with some bullshit on Twitter. Monday night, Jones exposed and called out the insanely racist abuse she’s been receiving.
Have you used Vine recently? No? You’re not alone. Once, Vine was the hottest thing around. Now, at least nine business leaders have left and the service that brought us “on fleek” (for which we will always be grateful) is struggling to keep people interested. The technology circle of life continues.
Relatives of victims from five terrorist attacks in Israel, one as recent as this past March, are suing Facebook for “having knowingly provided material support and resources to Hamas,” reports Reuters.
ISIS remains a terror in the Middle East, but there is one place its influence seems to have diminished: the wilds of the internet. Twitter traffic to pro-ISIS accounts has fallen 45 percent in the past two years, according to the Obama administration, which of course is also taking most of the credit.
In his first joint campaign appearance with Hillary Clinton, prominent narc Barack Obama let slip that his daughter, Sasha Obama, tweets. Meaning that Sasha’s covert days on Twitter are just about over.
On Saturday, Donald Trump posted a meme on Twitter featuring his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton’s face superimposed on piles of $100 bills, with a Star of David next to her bearing the words “Most Corrupt Candidate Ever!” Charges of antisemitism ensued. Obviously. The post was subsequently removed and reposted with…
Earlier today, we noticed that Donald Trump had gone uncharacteristically silent on Twitter, a phenomenon that just so happened to coincide with the hiring of his new communications adviser. Now, though, Donald Trump’s Twitter account is back and tweeting up a storm. No one tell Donald Trump.
Over the past 30-ish hours, the Supreme Court struck down a Texas anti-abortion law, Liz Warren spent a solid 15 minutes burning Trump, and the GOP let Crooked Hillary get away with Benghazi once and for all. And throughout all of it, red-faced Twitter egg king Donald Trump hasn’t made a peep. Something’s not right.
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.
