On Friday, Twitter announced that it would be shutting down work on its Mac desktop app, to the dismay of, err, no one.

Users have 30 days, starting on Feb. 16, before the app will no longer be supported, Twitter said.

"We're focusing our efforts on a great Twitter experience that's consistent across platforms," Twitter Support wrote in a tweet. "So, starting today the Twitter for Mac app will no longer be available for download, and in 30 days will no longer be supported."

The app hadn't exactly been flourishing in recent years, scoring a dismal 1.7 out of 5 in the App Store. Twitter had outsourced the development of the app to a studio in Seattle called Black Pixel. Read more...

This dog's heartwarming rescue from a New York subway tunnel will bring you happy tears

One lucky pup found compassiom in a most unlikely place: The New York City subway.

Dakota, aka Loppy the dog, was playing with her dog walker at a park in Brooklyn on Friday when the pooch managed to escape. Frightened, the poor pup ran to a place that she knew — the Jay St. station — and ended up inside the dangerous subway tunnel.

"It’s a familiar place for her, we commute together every day. She entered, ran across the platform, and at some point either fell or jumped in," Dakota's owner, Caroline Francis, posted to her Facebook.  Read more...

There's a striking difference between Obama and Trump's responses to school shootings

Sat, 17 Feb 2018 18:05:50 +0000

On Friday, President Donald Trump visited Parkland, Florida in the wake of a school shooting in a high school that left 17 people dead. But Trump has faced criticism over the way he carried himself during that visit.

After an awkward meeting with first responders, the president and first lady Melania Trump stood together for a friendly photo op, which in itself seems insensitive. Trump had a huge smile on his face in the photo, and flashed his now signature thumbs up.

Trump updated his Twitter cover photo with the picture from the meeting Friday evening.

Activists are registering voters at 'Black Panther' screenings for #WakandaTheVote

It's rare that blockbuster movies do anything to move culture forward besides make people really annoying on Twitter.

Ben Shapiro rants aside, Black Panther is a lovely exception. Activists Kayla Reed, Jessica Byrd and Rukia Lumumba from the Movement for Black Lives' Electoral Justice Project recently launched #WakandaTheVote to help register voters at Black Panther screenings across the country. 

"This weekend we wanted to meet our people in Wakanda," the activists told Blavity. "We know that for some it's a superhero world, but we know that the world we deserve is still waiting to be built — and we want to build it! This upcoming spring and November 2018 midterm elections are an important step in building that new world, and we want to take every opportunity to engage our communities in the conversation of electoral justice."

Shuri from 'Black Panther' may be a princess, but she's queen of our hearts

It's hard to say who among the incredible cast of characters in Black Panther reigns supreme. But if you ask this writer, there's be no question: Shuri, T'Challa's 16-year-old sister and badass princess of Wakanda, deserves to be crowned queen of the entire Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Aside from her sheer show-stealing cool factor, Shuri is the brilliant inventor ensuring Wakanda remains the most advanced nation in the world. She equips her brother and their entire people with the cutting-edge vibranium technology, armor, and weaponry that enables them to kick such serious ass – like in that fantastic Busan chase scene.  Read more...

LeBron fires back at Laura Ingraham after she told him to 'Shut up and dribble'

As America veers toward a Constitutional crisis, Fox News host Laura Ingraham is placing the blame not on Donald Trump but on ... LeBron James?

On Thursday, Ingraham dedicated a whole segment of her show to James, enjoining the player to "shut up and dribble" on the grounds that he wasn't "educated" enough to speak about politics. Last night, LeBron finally responded on Instagram with a pithy and forceful photo.

"#Wewillnotshutupanddribble," Lebron wrote in the caption below.

Beware! Slack leaks are the new email leaks

Fri, 16 Feb 2018 20:59:19 +0000

When Amy Pascal's ruthless emails leaked in the infamous Sony hack, friends of mine who worked in the entertainment industry were less than shocked, recalling that her emails just reflected how everyone speaks, and how deals get made, in Hollywood. 

And when John Podesta's leaked emails revealed the wheeling and dealing surrounding the Democratic National Committee and Hillary's nomination, people in politics expressed a similar sentiment to me: That's just how things get done.

In both cases, the fault lay not in the actual content of leaked emails, but with the executives and politicians who put too much truth in writing. Silly old people. They should have known better! Read more...

Lee St. John from Minnesota had an ingenious idea: build an earth sandwich. Four hours later, he teamed up with his new friend, Subash Luitel, in India to take over the world, Subway style. 

It was as simple as laying one slice of bread on the ground in Minnesota and having Subash place down a slice in Delhi, India. Shortly after posting the results on Facebook, the news that our reality is now a giant sandwich quickly went viral, racking up over 100,00 retweets and hundreds of shares on Facebook

Subash was understandably confused at first.
