This has a long history. In my book, No Filter, I reveal Instagram knew it was causing intense anxiety in teens as early as 2015. It was one of the main reasons they introduced Instagram Stories— to have a lower-pressure way for young people to share. https://t.co/FEQkCGX2pv

THIS BOOK!!! You must preorder if you have any interest in Silicon Valley culture. @chafkin is blowing me away. Like I actually consistently gasp and read passages aloud to my husband. I’m not done reading it yet but won’t take me long… https://t.co/lUBRwnwpkO

Why isn't YouTube getting the same level of criticism over vaccine conspiracies from the Biden administration that Facebook gets? @mhbergen in our newsletter today: https://t.co/U9TK5PN0yO

When's the last time Zuckerberg gave a reporter an interview about something besides the future of AR/VR? (I appreciate @CaseyNewton asking some governance/vaccine misinfo Qs though) https://t.co/3FmeERmfXO

Facebook's defense against Biden's criticism is missing the one thing that would help: data on the spread of covid-19 misinformation. by @KurtWagner8 https://t.co/iZGxUl9sgl

I relate so much to this. Took us months of applying for dogs at rescues within hours driving distance of SF, and getting ignored or rejected, before we finally found our pup. https://t.co/3gxo9T3wGV

little has changed since we wrote this: https://t.co/TpfPEymo4X the same antivaxx groups we cited in this story are still full of activity. https://t.co/6qr6b6rvDJ

Google wants most of its employees back in the office, even though data shows they're reaching pre-pandemic productivity levels at home, @mhbergen writes: https://t.co/M7RsHpOgaN

“Facebook’s executives were more worried about fixing the perception that Facebook was amplifying harmful content than figuring out whether it actually was amplifying harmful content.” this is such a theme within FB. Looking in the mirror and blaming the mirror for what they see. https://t.co/rcCo0VjRas

First Amazon, now Facebook… big tech doesn’t want to be evaluated by the FTC’s new chair https://t.co/4UvxjlVFfF

People said no to being tracked on iPhones. Now Facebook’s advertisers tell @KurtWagner8 they are already losing insight into their customers and the impact of their ads, which could affect their businesses — and Facebook’s revenue too. https://t.co/YaB3FDyyOb

A key line for Big Tech in the Biden executive order on competition, especially regarding the potential to unwind the Instagram & WhatsApp deals Facebook made. https://t.co/NMJXQZHenW

“...Nobody needed Reels and there was no user problem that Reels were trying to solve,” “Instead, Reels were purely about trying to solve a business problem for Facebook Inc, which was the rise of TikTok..” - @sarahfrier https://t.co/R5LdiNiLO5

Instagram was once a phenomenon that fit perfectly with our lives, but what went wrong? for @WiredUK I spoke to former employees about the app's identity crisis, paranoia over TikTok, frustrations erupting behind-the-scenes and Facebook's growing control https://t.co/MCTACrksss

this week's @bw cover is an excerpt from my new book. It asks: What did Peter Thiel get out of his 2016 endorsement of Donald Trump? Answer: A lot! https://t.co/PQ7o3xejI8

This profile of Laura Murphy by @NaomiNixWrites gets at the tension of racial equity audits: you can explain to a company how its products are racist, but you can’t control what it does with that information https://t.co/uFVNjnylOb

$TWTR earnings are out & things look good for Twitter: * Revenue was better than expected ($1.19B) * User growth was in-line with expectations * Perhaps most importantly, Twitter says third quarter revenue will be better than current estimates Stock up +6% after-hours

We hear a lot about the magic of TikTok's "for you" algorithm. This brilliantly done @WSJ video is a great introduction to how it actually works. Like most algorithms, the answer involves a lot less magic than it might seem. https://t.co/eIKliXebwd

ICYMI: Biden on his earlier comments that Facebook is "killing people:" “My hope is that Facebook, instead of taking it personally … that they would do something about the outrageous misinformation about the vaccine"

Some news: YouTube will add more labels and a display "shelf" for health videos, relying on recs from the ngo National Academy of Medicine (at least in US). https://t.co/mbKqtrgzgh

🧵The last 48 hours on here have been all about The Vaccine Discourse. Is FB killing people? Is the govt passing the buck? Who even can tell what IS misinformation, and who watches the watchmen, anyway? I’ve spent ~7 years watching the AV movement evolve online and have thoughts

After Biden's criticism of @Facebook for their inaction on antivax propaganda, @fbnewsroom is going on the offensive. They issued a press release that is a textbook example of bluster, obfuscation, and agnatogenesis. Here's the link. Let's take a look. https://t.co/FfD2QUFYQA
