Automation and the use of multiple accounts
Keeping Twitter safe and free from spam is a top priority for us. One of the most common spam violations we see is the use of multiple accounts and the Twitter developer platform to attempt to artificially amplify or inflate the prominence of certain Tweets. To be clear: Twitter prohibits any attempt to use automation for the purposes of posting or disseminating spam, and such behavior may result in enforcement action.

Embedding a Tweet Can be Copyright Infringement, Court Rules
“Nowadays it’s fairly common for blogs and news sites to embed content posted by third parties, ranging from YouTube videos to tweets.

Although these publications don’t host the content themselves, they can be held liable for copyright infringement, a New York federal court has ruled.”

Bitcoin’s Inconvenient Truth
It’s hard to imagine Chia eclipsing Bitcoin. It’s one of more than 1,300 cryptocurrencies developed to suit different needs (there’s a cryptocurrency pegged to the dollar for use on eBay as well as a cryptocurrency to trade virtual items in video games). Some cryptocurrency experts, like Eric Voskuil, a former principal architect at Microsoft, wonder what’s to stop Chia farmers from buying thousands of cheap hard drives and running them 24 hours a day, burning electricity just like Bitcoin miners. That will only be an issue, Cohen says, if the currency Chia issues annually becomes worth more than a trillion dollars. “And, uh, it’s a little weird to criticize something by saying that it will start to encounter problems if it becomes a trillion-dollar-a-year industry,” Cohen says.

Don't feed the troll
It's so important a lesson, learned so many times by so many people, through so much pain, that it has been codified into a mantra, so we never forget.
Don't feed the troll.
Don't feed the troll.
Don't feed the troll.
Don't feed the troll.
Don't feed the troll.
Etc.

She Has Seen The Future And It Is -- Weblogs (from 1999)
Weblogs are -- well, let's back up a bit. If I define a Weblog, I'm not being true to the fluid, floating, idiosyncratic spirit of the enterprise. Definitions are boundaries, and boundaries are anathema to Webloggers. Moreover, the best Weblogs are always shifting and evolving, always on their way to being something else.

It will also move away from using "time spent" on the platform as a metric of success and will instead focus on "engagement" with content, such as comments.

You are what you share
s we move away from the top-down regime of promoted movies, well-shelved books and all sorts of hype, the recommendation from person to person is now the most powerful way we have to change things.

It takes guts to say, "I read this and you should too." The guts to care enough about our culture (and your friends) to move it forward and to stand for something.

We'll judge you most on whether you care enough to change things.

How I set up an automatic weekly blog digest
Earlier this year someone asked me why my blog didn’t have an email newsletter. My instinctive reaction was “I don’t have time to do that every week!! I won’t remember!”. But then I realized that I could automatically generate a weekly blog digest! Now I’ve had it for ~6 months (https://jvns.ca/newsletter).

“Has anyone researched news sites capability to provide low-bandwidth communication of critical info during crisis situations?” he asked.

The question was timely — two days later, CNN announced that they created a text-only version of their site with no ads or videos.

Corbyn v May in the battle to go viral at Prime Minister's Questions
Each Wednesday at noon, MPs gather in the House of Commons for Prime Minister's Questions, and Labour Leader Jeremy Corbyn gets six attempts to question Theresa May.
It's billed as a fiery debate about the issues of the week, but it can often head off-topic into what might sound like an unscripted generalised ramble.
There's a very good reason for why this happens - as well as engaging with their opponent, both leaders are also trying to go viral on social media.
At last week's Prime Minister's Questions - or PMQs as it is widely known - Mr Corbyn's first couple of questions were about the big issue of the week - the prime minister's failure to a secure a Brexit deal in Brussels on Monday.

Siri is my agony aunt – but is telling big tech my innermost feelings a bad idea? | Technology | The Guardian
It’s three in the morning and my room is bathed in the glow of my phone. Like one in three people, I check my smartphone when I wake up in the middle of the night. I can’t sleep and so wander from one social-media app to another, my thumbs scrolling through what feels like miles of emptiness. “Siri, what is the meaning of life?” I ask without thinking. “I have stopped asking myself this kind of question,” she answers. I ask again, because I like it better when she says “nothing Niestzche wouldn’t teach you”.
