Also in our chat: Competing with Tik-Tok, paying creators (but not sharing ad revenue, yet) and Instagram’s upcoming pivot to video. https://t.co/JlzVhYRrOa

“Cars create way more value in the world than they destroyed. And I think social media is similar” Instagram boss @mosseri on WSJ piece re: IG research that suggests the app can be harmful to its teenage users. https://t.co/TAdYFdSOyC

Our newest season of Land of the Giants is about the company that changed computers, phones, and the world. It starts next week. Here’s a brief taste, featuring Steve Jobs and @waltmossberg. https://t.co/ysuqMCnP6V

This goes into the same category as constant surface wiping: Some of it is well-meaning, some of it is legal ass-covering. All of it was understandable in spring and summer 2020, but not now. https://t.co/UGsTlkWb89

$1.5 billion valuation for a company that’s made a single game. Started as a Stanford undergrad project. https://t.co/I9ZSTbmmfT

This from @mvpeers fills in the gap: Murdochs pay Harvey, not AT&T. https://t.co/MGH1kckWBJ

Gap between TMZ’s influence and reported value is striking. https://t.co/CTu27lthZZ

This is why the “apple is going to lose its App Store margin” isn’t the forgone conclusion many hot takes offered last week. Apple *could* see margin/revenues drop but it’s not a done deal, at all. https://t.co/MTJpVOYisA

PS: First day of school packed subway is great for NYC. Unless we manage to infect ourselves again. https://t.co/OIaP3hHuBR

Who are the people who get on a packed subway car full of masked people and don’t put their own mask on? Also, WTF?

You might think the NFL’s consistently janky app indicates how happy the league is to make billions selling rights and letting other people figure out tech and distribution. But I see it as a small kindness, bc it prevents me from consuming Vikings #content.

Also Never Forget the Glitter soundtrack, which got Mariah Carey out of a $$$$$ label deal. https://t.co/JObdYunuss https://t.co/5eYAzcB2bT

Ah we are here again. So, again: Don’t get a master’s in journalism. Get a job in journalism. If you’re really rich/into debt, go ahead and subsidize your low-paying journalism intro job. But don’t pay anyone directly to get into journalism. https://t.co/VCSKvRH1TG

NFL has been dangling this to the tech guys since 2013. Makes sense that Amazon could be the one that bites. https://t.co/EuZ3tEOvlp https://t.co/FScmB22QEr

Brooklyn-based Genius, a music-annotating startup that provides context for rap lyrics, has sold its assets for $80M, less than the total funding it raised (@mcbridesg / Bloomberg) https://t.co/yRc2zKjzXt https://t.co/mhnPoqgFhw

“Many parties…worry about the long term effects on democracy,” Facebook researchers wrote in an internal report on how the company’s 2018 algorithm change incentivized more divisive political discourse. My deep dive w/ @JeffHorwitz https://t.co/ElJVLPq2or via @WSJ

Lastly, I realize I didn't post the link. Here is the podcast. Hat tip to the entire team at WSJ, including the lead reporter @JeffHorwitz, and the team at Gimlet who I see are behind the podcast (ht @lpolgreen). Super important work. /14 https://t.co/DToogGSCUd

The final act of the U.S. war in Afghanistan was a drone strike in Kabul that killed 10 people. Our latest investigation shows how a man the military saw as an "imminent threat" and "ISIS facilitator" was actually an aid worker returning to his family: https://t.co/eUX5WSImrD

From the Epic v Apple Verdict: "The Court cannot ultimately conclude that Apple is a monopolist under either federal or state antitrust laws. ... Success is not illegal. ... Epic Games failed in its burden to demonstrate Apple is an illegal monopolist."

(h/t ⁦@michaelnoer⁩) This space will be an Irish pub in a month or so, as soon as the owner realizes he’s got a deadline to hit and finally gets off his ass

Government paid airlines tens of billions of dollars to remain staffed up so they’re ready to go when people start flying again. Airlines took the money, laid off tens of thousands of staff, and are now chronically understaffed as people start flying again https://t.co/w4KoazMeA6

So, the @RIAA didn't like this image in my original Tweet yesterday, told @Twitter the file represented "sound recordings" owned by one of its member companies in a DMCA takedown notice. My account was briefly locked and the file was removed. Here it is again, enjoy the tunes!

the corporate response to the texas abortion law is that there isn't one.

The New York Times Company Should Stop Creating Fossil Fuel Ads - As a former climate-focused writer at the paper, I think it's time for the Times to stop making ads for fossil fuel giants, but not yet for a total ban. My take on #AdsNotFit2Print: https://t.co/t3efK6wUSF
