Roblox shows why "the metaverse might not quite be the sort of glittering dreamland that some tech entrepreneurs make it out to be," journalist Quintin Smith says. He explains what his investigation into the popular video game platform found. 🖥️ ⬇️ https://t.co/D9oHrGE32c

The website, which gets about 6 million monthly views, is "uniquely dangerous" because it boasts detailed methods on how to die by suicide, @mega2e says. There's another alarming stat: Nearly half of the website’s members are under 25 years old. https://t.co/0KWcqnO1VK

Two-thirds of American children ages 9 to 12 have Roblox accounts, says journalist Quintin Smith says. But his investigation into the popular video game platform found it doesn't fairly compensate young developers and allows space for abuse. https://t.co/D9oHrGmsaE

Investigative reporter @mega2e and her fellow journalists considered it their ethical duty to report on the staggering number of website members who were dying every week, the site’s explicit directions for suicide, and why the site continues to operate. https://t.co/0KWcqnO1VK

A 12-year-old girl spent a year trying to get Roblox's attention on a 20-something user who sent her inappropriate sexual messages — but the company didn't take action until Sega got involved over a copyright issue, journalist Quintin Smith says. https://t.co/D9oHrGE32c

Any comments on the website about reasons to keep fighting get outweighed by the onslaught of posts promoting reasons to die by suicide. The disturbing site was “purposefully designed” to support the latter, investigative reporter @mega2e says. https://t.co/0KWcqnO1VK

If a user earns 100,000 Robux, that translates to $350 off the platform, journalist Quintin Smith says. However, buying 100,000 Robux costs about $1,000. https://t.co/D9oHrGE32c

Living under a new normal doesn’t mean forgoing all precautions or subscribing to the notion that getting sick with COVID-19 is inevitable. It’s about protection, preparedness and using the tools at our disposal, says immunologist Rick Bright. https://t.co/Kjfu84hQH7

Does your own death seem completely unfathomable to you? That's because the human brain isn’t wired to comprehend our own death — that we will someday no longer exist, neuroscientist @david_j_linden says. https://t.co/JDAmb2y5tj

The human brain is always trying to predict the near future — and that complicates thinking about death. "Our brains are hard-wired to have a problem with truly engaging with our own demise," neuroscientist @david_j_linden says. https://t.co/JDAmb2y5tj

Listen to this fascinating conversation @TonyaMosley had with @PeopleMakeGames about Roblox, especially if you're a parent of someone who plays or (like me) have little to no idea what happens on one of the world's biggest gaming platforms https://t.co/8tHUt7qSCt via @hereandnow

Thanks you @hereandnow for the in-depth discussion of @gabrieldance's and my investigation of a suicide website run by two shadowy figures that has left a long trail of deaths. Most of those dying are young--including teens. As one mom asked: How is this site still allowed? https://t.co/xmsmkK1s4M

A big thank you to my friends at @hereandnow for airing my personal essay on Betty White today, on what would have been White’s 100th birthday. As a gay man living with #HIV, I still get choked up every time I watch this episode about AIDS. https://t.co/ivzkJzXgmM

The late #GoldenGirls star Betty White would have turned 100 today. That show was important to me. Especially one episode where Rose fears she might have AIDS. How #BettyWhite and the Golden Girls helped me accept my own #HIV diagnosis, on @hereandnow https://t.co/ivzkJzXgmM
