My joke idea for a new Facebook name has been "Whistleblowers Inc." because it would make stories about Facebook whistleblowers too confusing to follow. Anyway there’s a new Facebook whistleblower https://t.co/hJbzbzhFtJ

Fresh details about the FB rebrand: - Move has been under discussion seriously for at least a 2 months; casually for 3+ years - The final name *appears not to be chosen*; - Some are saying Zuckerberg is now leaning *away* from Meta /metaverse branding https://t.co/UF1VoDTAFb

Just accidentally invoked Siri on my 2020 MacBook Pro for the hundredth time and smiled knowing that in a few weeks I’ll have a row of function keys and this machine will be sitting on the bottom of the ocean

If you are a tech giant considering a rebrand please note that Evil Corp. is now available https://t.co/nyNrSv8Q0o

Re: new Facebook name: “The web address https://t.co/qti07FBUST currently redirects to https://t.co/9rQJSCIZsS, the home of a biomedical research discovery tool developed under the stewardship of the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative.” 👀 https://t.co/yr8rJXwJ7h

No one has made a good joke yet about Facebook’s new name but it’s still early

There’s a battle looming between all these new blockchain startups and incumbent platforms that want nothing to do with them. I wrote about Steam, Epic Games, and the generational divide over NFTs: https://t.co/xKATqLpBqS

Reading the coverage of today’s Google event and the vibe is very “the Pixel 6 is certainly a phone that exists”

Bonkers story about teen girls developing tics after watching too much tic-related TikTok content https://t.co/L6BzmGp1fO

Wrote about the Facebook hate speech debate and how, per @samidh, a focus on what the average user sees can hide what’s happening at the extremes — or in countries where Facebook does not support the languages people speak. https://t.co/2940F6hyxD

“First, the idea that in 2021, the top performing link post on Facebook only has 9,000 shares is, honestly, horrifying.” https://t.co/PJZEQKqYGT

NEW: The Facebook whistleblower has drawn some powerful behind-the-scenes help from a tech billionaire: Pierre Omidyar, who founded eBay. His financial support has provided a boost to Frances Haugen and her sophisticated PR operation. https://t.co/Lv4NNal1UP

neil shankar is spooked
someone (FB) has been doing a massive land grab of every "meta" domain over the past 6-8mo. several uncommon TLDs like https://t.co/ae2jyONjSz were updated in the last 1mo. it's gonna be META. https://t.co/MpB4Nh95w3

digital scarcity is coming to platforms in the form of NFT, and is opening up a generational divide among them. Great point by @CaseyNewton on @platformer https://t.co/s3uVEPSkDW

Dear Facebook: We've received your request to change your name. However, due to our real names policy, you will first need to fax us a copy of your court order and new driver's license....

Surprise: Facebook is planning to change its company name next week to reflect its focus on the metaverse. I’m told Zuckerberg is planning a formal unveil next Thursday at Connect, the company’s annual AR/VR conference https://t.co/nYoh4PQt4Y

NEW: The trans ERG at Netflix has released a list of demands ahead of Wednesday's walkout. Taking down the Dave Chappelle special isn't one of them. https://t.co/n5n6PjwW1l

There are a million things I could say about this hate speech prevalence debate, but it boils down to this: it perfectly illustrates just how worrisome it is that FB's integrity efforts are managed as growth initiatives. Long 🧵 so stick with me... https://t.co/yOzwTyYfGl

gay people always have two accounts and one is like “i am horny” and the other is like “i am so sad” and one of them will be private…but which one it is will depend on the person

Breaking: Netflix has fired the organizer of the trans employee walkout on suspicion of leaking internal metrics to the press. The employee, who is Black and currently pregnant, spoke out about the leaks internally, with fears they might hurt the walkout movement. https://t.co/z8YP9WPFep
