Sixteen-year-old Matthew Walzer’s heartfelt letter to Nike’s CEO, Mark Parker, is quickly spreading across Twitter through the hashtag campaign #NikeLetter. Walzer posted the letter on his blog Tuesday afternoon, hoping to make Parker aware of a “great need” for supportive, easily-fastened shoes for people with cerebral palsy. Walzer was born two months premature, and when he was diagnosed with cerebral palsy, the country’s top doctors told his parents that he would never be able to walk. Against all odds, Walzer can walk with the aid of crutches and his Nike basketball sneakers, which provide ample ankle support. But Walzer has […]

If I could elect Chrissy Teigen to the Senate, I would. She represents ~the people~ better than any politician. She understands our desires, our struggles and our food issues. She openly shares the details of her life to better bond with the public, and we gladly accept her offerings. Most recently, the “Lip Sync Battle” star went on a detailed pie rant, and — speaking honestly from the perspective of a devoted CT Twitter follower — every moment was like looking in a goddamn mirror. COMMENCE PIE RANT. PIE RANT…. — christine teigen (@chrissyteigen) February 7, 2016 She sets the […]

While COO Ali Rowghani was liked by some of Twitter’s staff, it seems he found himself in the company’s long line of scapegoats. View this image › Aly Song / Reuters Ali Rowghani, Twitter’s chief operating officer, who anonymous insiders anointed “co-CEO” in a Wall Street Journal profile — resigned this morning amid concerns over the company’s stalling growth. The resignation was foreshadowed in a report last night from Re/Code’s Kara Swisher that detailed growing tensions between Rowghani and the executive suite of the company. Rowghani’s inability to spur growth, a much-needed signal for public shareholders that are now determining […]

More than a year after the Arab Spring began in Tunisia, it has become a megaphone for propaganda from both sides of the struggle in conflict-ridden Syria. Twitter, Facebook and YouTube are replete with propaganda from Syria — government forces and rebels have been using the networks to spar for the attention and support of the outside world. The Syrian government even has a division, the Syrian Electronic Army, assigned to the task. “It’s not surprising […]
