HBO Invited Us to a Westworld Dinner Party, Where We Were the Ones Roasted

HBO Invited Us to a Westworld Dinner Party, Where We Were the Ones Roasted

“Ms. Cranz, would you prefer a tequila or vodka shot? Don’t worry. We know the difference.” With one question a Westworld “robot” had roasted me to a cinder and brought into relief everything cool and terrifying about HBO’s Westworld “activation” at CES.

White House Tweets 'First Snow of the Year' On Same Day It Hits 70 Degrees in Washington D.C.

The White House tweeted out this photo last night, declaring “First snow of the year!” The tweet confused a lot of people, to say the least, largely because it didn’t snow at all in Washington, D.C. yesterday. In fact, it reached 70 degrees on Sunday afternoon, according to the National Weather Service.

Why did the Trump regime send out a tweet about the first snow of the year? One possibility...

The Anatomy of Online Bullshit in the Fog of Impending Doom

Early local time on Friday, the U.S. assassinated high-ranking Iranian official Qassem Soleimani and multiple other people with a targeted airstrike at Baghdad International Airport in Iraq. Or they were killed on the battlefield in a totally legal, non-assassination, depending on who you believe.

The White House portrayed the killing of Soleimani, a major general of the Islamic Revolutionary...

In 2019, President Donald Trump tweeted 7,700 times to his 68 million followers, nearly doubling his count from the previous year, 3,600, according to a recent New York Post report.

In a new personal best, the president pushed out a whopping 123...

ExxonMobil Wishes Australia a 'Fun' New Year as Country Burns in Climate Crisis

ExxonMobil Wishes Australia a 'Fun' New Year as Country Burns in Climate Crisis

ExxonMobil sent out a heartwarming tweet yesterday, wishing the good people of Australia a “safe” and “fun” New Year. Well, maybe heartwarming isn’t the right word. Perhaps “idiotic” is more appropriate, given the fact that large parts of Australia are currently on fire thanks in part to ExxonMobil’s history of climate change denial.

Australia’s capital city of Canberra had the worst air...

Open Channel: The Best Tweets of the Decade That Still Haven't Been Deleted

Over a decade in, the value proposition of Twitter as a medium is murky, not easily defined—though one area it undoubtedly excels is allowing important people to show every embarrassing contour of their entire ass to the rest of the world.

President Trump's Facebook Ads Keep Getting More and More Fascist

President Trump's Facebook Ads Keep Getting More and More Fascist

Yesterday, Donald Trump became the third president in the history of the United States to get impeached, and Trump is obviously not happy. But as things get worse for the president, his message becomes more and more extreme, especially on social media platforms like Facebook. The Trump campaign buys new Facebook ads every day, and the ones from yesterday were particularly weird, to say the...

CEOwned: Jack Dorsey Just UNFOLLOWED Mark Zuckerberg

Jack Dorsey is sitting, plotting, thinking about how much he hates his enemy Mark Zuckerberg for reasons unclear to the public but apparently very clear and ever-present in Jack Dorsey’s mind. Mark Zuckerberg was doing other stuff today, possibly work, probably thinking about bigger-picture nefarious schemes like world domination, but all of his plans are now canceled because Jack Dorsey has...

Photo Uploads to Twitter Just Got a Big Upgrade in Quality

According to Twitter engineer Nolan O’Brien, Twitter will now preserve JPEGs exactly as they were originally encoded when uploaded on...

I Want That on a T-Shirt

Artists on Twitter say that their work is regularly stolen by armies of bots that generate t-shirts from popular designs—and they’ve got the receipts to prove it.

Here’s the scam: Bots linked to popular t-shirt sales platforms appear to be crawling Twitter for replies to artists that mention phrases like “I want that on a t-shirt” or “Can I get that on a t-shirt?” Within hours, vendors on...
