Twitter’s plan to make people stop yelling at each other

Twitter’s leadership knows that it’s basically broken, and its latest attempt to fix itself shows how daunting of a task that will be.
San Francisco — In March, Twitter cofounder biz Stone tweeted a screenshot of an iPhone homescreen along with a message: “Notice our new prototype? … It’s called ‘twttr.’ The bird flew away from the app icon representing: Simplicity. Blue sky thinking. We’re re-working. Not there yet: hence, no logo.”


Twitter, predictably, immediately dysregulated in response. “Most moronic design decision ever made.” “It’s horrible.” “Awful.” the most viral reply leaned on a popular Twitter trope to poke fun at the platform’s inability to ban bad actors: “everyone: get rid of the Nazis. Yall: we got rid of the logo.”


And yet, it was all a misunderstanding. Twitter hadn’t modified its icon in the least. It launched a separate app, “twttr,” as an external, public prototype to experiment with new features it’s considering rolling out on Twitter itself; a way to test things publically. Stone clarified: “Folks, the bird isn’t going away from Twitter.”

Get likes on Instagram

Instagram isn’t any longer simply ‘a social media platform’. It’s your digital image, laid bare for all to see. With over a Billion of users Instagram is more than social media; it’s a digital world of its own. This is the world where status matters and where your follower count is social proof of your popularity and interest. As humans, we are hard-wired to use social proof to assess all things in life.


We walk past the empty restaurant to stand in line and wait an hour for a table at the busy one. We wear the clothes that we’ve seen the celebrities wear on their Instagram. In short, we tend to follow the crowd, and on Instagram an account with hardly any likes or followers screams ‘boring’. However it doesn’t have to be this way.

Facebook plans June 18th cryptocurrency debut. Here’s what we know.

Facebook is finally ready to reveal details regarding its cryptocurrency codenamed Libra. It’s presently scheduled for a June 18th release of a white paper explaining its cryptocurrency’s basics, according to a source who says multiple investors briefed on the project by Facebook were told that date.


Meanwhile, the company’s Head of financial Services & Payment Partnerships for northern Europe Laura McCracken told German magazine WirtschaftsWoche‘s Sebastian Kirsch that the white paper would debut June 18th, and that the cryptocurrency would indeed be pegged to a basket of currencies instead of a single one like the U.S.A. dollar to prevent price fluctuations. Kirsch tells me “I met Laura at Money2020 Europe in Amsterdam on Tuesday” after she watched fellow Facebook payments exec Paulette Rowe’s talk.

“She told me that she wasn’t involved in what David Marcus’ [Facebook Blockchain] team was doing. However, I’d have to wait till June 18th once a whitepaper was supposed to be revealed to get more details.” She told him she thought the date was already a publicly known truth, which it wasn’t.
