After year-long lockout, Twitter is finally giving people their accounts back

Twitter is finally allowing a number of locked users to regain control of their accounts once again. Around a  year after Europe’s new privacy laws (GDPR) rolled out, Twitter began booting users out of their accounts if it suspected the account’s owner was underage — that is, younger than 13. But the process also locked out many users who said they were now old enough to use Twitter’s service legally.

While Twitter’s rules had stated that users under 13 can’t create accounts or…

Donald Trump wants you to know that he totally understands your online struggle. 

The 45th President of the United States is famous for complaining about the perceived censoring of conservatives on social media, and, in an effort to ride that wave of self-victimization toward a larger database of potential Trump voters, has launched a survey giving people to chance to gripe to their hearts’ content about losing Twitter followers or whatever. Oh, also, the site also just so happens to have…

YTMND, one of the internet’s earliest meme sites, shuts down forever

TwitterFacebook

One of the internet’s earliest meme pioneers is no more. 

“You’re the Man Now, Dog!,” more commonly known as YTMND has shut down. Twitter users first noticed the site was no longer accessible on Monday and word quickly spread to forums and other corners of the web populated by those who were heavily influenced by the meme site.

YTMND was most well known for its user generated standalone pages filled with a single, tiled image or animated GIF, embedded with large text, and often with…

Twitter hater says he’d rather drink pee than coconut water, and Vita Coco follows through

TwitterFacebook

Brands uh, really are going for it nowadays. 

Vita Coco, for one, had us all screaming when they responded to a hater who tweeted that he’d rather drink their social media manager’s pee than consume Vita Coco’s coconut water. Instead of simply moving on, the company mustered up all its BDE and had a staffer urinate in a jar, post a photo of said pee, and ask for the hater’s address.

How the hell did we get here?

Heavily opinionated Twitter user Tony Posnanski took to the platform in March…

Users who violate the network’s most serious policies will be prohibited from using Live for a certain period of time, which will begin from their first offence. One example of an offence is a user…
