You know one of the most annoying social media things I have noticed.

Sharing YouTube videos to Twitter or Facebook sucks.

Like Half the time Twitter is a link only, it might get a small thumbnail. Facebook seems to not even show the videos to anyone with it's algorithm.

I feel like this is done because both Twitter and Facebook have their own "video platforms". Which is really damn annoying, because YouTube is where everything is, I am sorry your native platform sucks but stop downaying the one everyone uses.

Holy smoke: would you believe that Disney had a chance to acquire Twitter and turned it down because of what a toxic mess Twitter is? It's true.


Although it's really a shame I suppose - though it's weird to say it, I gotta say Twitter might actually be a better place if Disney HAD bought it and cleaned house. They sure as heck would've purged the rapedudes and white nationalists.

I suppose that is true. But to get it to Disney standards they would have to purge pretty much everything else too.

I can't see the situation being better under Disney, just different, probably with restrictions going too far against free speech that is controversial, as opposed to purely hate speech, abuse, and threats. Twitter needs to live in the middle space between a free-for-all and a sanitized PR platform.

On the other hand, I think they should have bought Tumblr and kept it as it was before the porn purge. That would let them profit off the Disney/Star Wars/Marvel porn that is going to happen anyway.

And the Security is for the Birds bells keep on chiming!

In a disclosure Tuesday, the social media giant said it did not know how many users were impacted.

The issue stemmed from the company’s tailored audiences program, which allows companies to target advertisements against their own marketing lists, such as phone numbers and email addresses. But Twitter found that when advertisers uploaded their marketing lists, it matched Twitter users to the phone numbers and email addresses users submitted to set up two-factor authentication on their account.

Never argue security with Matthew Green, he will always win. My favorite quote: "In all seriousness: whose idea was it to use a valuable advertising identifier as an input to a security system. This is like using raw meat to secure your tent against bears. "

Disney is all about making money, while Twitter until late 2017 always lost money. Twitter was just a nasty, rotten smelling garbage dump back then which has not proven back then to be profitable more than a few months in a row and simply not worth to buy.
