TWTR FB

Facebook, YouTube and Twitter are struggling to remove New Zealand mosque shooting videos. Shortly after, tech giants scrambled to remove his accounts, but versions of the video remained on some sites hours after the shootings, which killed at least 49 people.

Reddit removed the video and similar links at the request of New Zealand police, according to a Redditor who first posted the video. But users who found the video elsewhere online claimed to have downloaded copies and were offering to share the files in direct messages.

Twitter Rolls Out Snapchat-Like Camera Feature, Experimental App

TWTR GBPUSD +1 more TWTR GBPUSD BA

(Bloomberg) -- Twitter Inc. is rolling out a Snapchat-like camera feature that lets users post videos or photos in a swipe, as the social-media company experiments with changes and new products to persuade more people to join the service. The update allows users to more easily access the service’s existing camera, encouraging them to show nearby events in real time, whether its breaking news, a sporting game, or a festival. It’s “designed to make it easier to capture what you see happening, and get it to the people who want to see and talk about it,” Keith Coleman, Twitter’s vice president of product, wrote in a tweet introducing the camera. Twitter has a history of being slow to change its product, scrapping ideas for fear of alienating its hardcore users and debating new wrinkles over long periods of time, in contrast with its larger rival, Facebook Inc., which hasn’t been afraid to make drastic changes to its social network.

Doctors warn Google, Twitter, and Facebook about anti-vaxxers

TWTR FB +2 more TWTR FB GOOG GOOGL

Doctors think too many American kids are missing vaccinations, and that fake news spreading like wildfire on social media platforms like Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube may be largely to blame. On Wednesday, the American Medical Association (AMA), the largest professional group of doctors in the US, sent an open letter to the CEOs of Amazon, Facebook, Google, Pinterest, Twitter and YouTube, voicing concern that parents are taking in all kinds of fake information about childhood vaccines from inaccurate videos, posts, and links on their platforms. The anti-vaxx content that's been cropping up on social media for years appears to be having a harmful effect: a recent UK study suggested that two in every five parents have been exposed to anti-vaccine content on social media, and more than one in four believe, wrongly, that a person can have "too many" vaccines. Ethan Lindenberger, an 18-year-old who has recently taken it upon himself to start catching up on his own childhood vaccines, said his mother often used Facebook to spread false information about vaccines to her friends, and inform her beliefs that vaccines were dangerous for him.

Twitter (TWTR) Launches Prototype App to Test New Features

TWTR

They will then be redirected to a new page for a survey. The Rationale Behind a Beta AppTo lure users, social media giants keep coming up with new features. This helps in attracting advertisers, thereby driving top-line growth. But often new updates or features backfire and cause the user base to dwindle.For Snap SNAP, the company’s daily active users (DAU) decreased nearly 2 million sequentially to 186 million in third-quarter 2018. We believe with the help of a beta app, Twitter can be aware of how early testers are responding to the new features and accordingly make changes before its release on Twitter’s platform. What are the New Updates?Twitter’s new update is aimed at improving the design of a conversation and make the application more interactive.The company is rolling out color-coded replies, which help to differentiate between replies from the user who posts the tweet and other Twitter users and makes its convenient for others.Further, the replies to a tweet will be in the shape of a bubble and will be indented.

TWTR GBPUSD

'It sums up Brexit': Emily Maitlis' side-eye during Brexit interview wins Twitter. Newsnight presenter Emily Maitlis was doing a round of interviews after Theresa May lost the vote on her Brexit deal, throwing yet more uncertainty into Britain leaving the EU. And it was when speaking to Labour’s shadow International Trade secretary Barry Gardiner that Ms Maitlis seemed to lose her patience. After quite a heated discussion, Ms Maitlis said: “The country is desperate for leadership and we know we’re not getting it from the Government and we’re not getting it from Jeremy Corbyn either. She then said: “Just answer me this – if there is a general election called next week, which could happen, what will be on your manifesto? What Brexit vision will be on your manifesto.”.

In Indonesia, Facebook and Twitter are 'buzzer' battlegrounds as elections loom

TWTR FB

The Twitter account's real owner is an unmarried middle-aged man who offers political social media services backing Widodo's re-election campaign. He is a leader of one of the many so called "buzzer" teams, named for the social media buzz such groups aim to create, that have sprung up in Indonesia ahead of the presidential election next month in the world's third-largest democracy. In interviews with Reuters, over a dozen buzzer team members, social media consultants and cyber experts described an array of social media operations that they said were spreading propaganda on behalf of both Widodo and his challenger, retired general Prabowo Subianto. The buzzer campaigns have far outstripped the efforts of Facebook and other social media companies to curtail creation of fake accounts and spread fake news, cyber experts say.

Twitter Ramps Up Security Effort, Updates Report Post Feature

TWTR

Twitter TWTR continues to ramp up its security measures to enhance user safety and accessibility on its platform. Recently, the social media giant updated its reporting feature, which enables users to provide a detailed review of the tweet they choose to report. Notably, prior to this development, reporting a tweet or an account only worked for those accounts that violated Twitter’s policies.On reporting a post, users will get to specify whether a particular tweet is offensive or is spreading personal information. If a user selects the second option, they can mention if the tweet reveals their contact information, place of residence, financial information or ID numbers among others.The new update will help Twitter to prioritize the reported tweets and accelerate the process of removing the ones containing personal information. Notably, a dwindling user base can hurt advertising revenues, which accounted for 86% of total revenues in 2018.Per a recent report from TechCrunch, Twitter not only stores deleted messages but also data sent to and from accounts that have been deactivated and suspended on its platform.

Musk Twitter Fight Goes to Court Again on SEC Contempt Charge

TWTR TSLA

Musk Twitter Fight Goes to Court Again on SEC Contempt Charge. (Bloomberg) -- Elon Musk is about to urge a judge to go easy on him for tweets that U.S. regulators contend violated a court order, though legal experts say the pugnacious billionaire will have a hard time avoiding some kind of punishment. Musk, who remains chief executive officer and Tesla’s largest shareholder, has already given signs of his legal arguments -- that he didn’t disclose new information, the statements weren’t significant enough to get a reasonable investor to buy or sell Tesla shares, and he shouldn’t face penalties that would hurt the company. His latest tussle with the SEC centers on a Feb. 19 tweet, in which Musk said Tesla would make about half a million cars in 2019.
