    Twitter has been accused of double standards for flagging posts by Donald Trump but allowing tweets from Iran's Ayatollah on Israel to remain on the platform.  During a Knesset hearing on antisemitism in social media Wednesday, human rights lawyer Arsen Ostrovsky questioned why the U.S. President's tweets were flagged but not those of Ayatollah Khamenei, who  'literally called for the genocide of Israel and the Jewish people'.  It comes as Twitter faced criticism for suspending the Twitter account of Donald Trump Jr. after he tweeted a video promoting hydroxychloroquine as a treatment for the coronavirus.  Human rights lawyer Arsen Ostrovsky (pictured) questioned why the U.S. President's tweets were flagged but not those of Ayatollah Khameini The question was asked during...

    Over the last 24 hours, the Trump family has engaged a new tone. Yes, the presidential pivot you’ve been longing for has finally happened. And not a moment too soon. As American deaths hover around 151,000, the president of the United States has finally embraced his conspiracy theory-loving Boomer self and gone full coronavirus misinformation-spreader, a drama that culminated in the president’s large adult son having some features on his Twitter account locked.  Of course, Junior’s spokesman tweeted a provocative explanation for this expulsion: “Big Tech is the biggest threat to free expression in America today & they're continuing to engage in open election interference—full stop.” But that’s not actually what happened. What actually happened was that according to...

The agency has also maintained that the protesters weren’t peaceful, which necessitated the use of force and defensive weapons to clear the park. But during a House Natural Resources...
    A student’s Texas score on the STAAR will not be used to determine if he or she is progressing to the next grade level during the 2020-2021 school year, Texas Governor Greg Abbott announced Monday.

    On Monday, Johnny Depp’s libel trial against The Sun publisher News Group Newspapers entered its penultimate day, with NGN attorney Sasha Wass arguing that Depp’s drug use fueled “irrational mood swings and abnormal behavioral patterns, which would not have been present when Mr Depp was clean and sober”—and that the actor was too high to remember allegedly abusing his ex-wife, Amber Heard. Depp is suing NGN for libel over a 2018 article that ran in The Sun, which called him a “wife-beater” in its headline. The publisher’s defense rests on 14 allegations of domestic abuse from Heard, which allegedly occurred between 2013 and 2016. Depp has denied all allegations of abuse, and his libel suit is this century’s largest in...

    Dear MarketWatch, I’m a 44-year-old military officer planning to retire in four years after 30 years of service. My retirement pay should be about $76,000 a year, with an additional $16,000 a year in disability pay, based on my previous disability rating. I have a mortgage on my current home, but I’ll likely sell it when I retire and move to a state with no tax on military retirement pay. Medical will be inexpensive for my wife and I, but my daughter will be starting college and I’m responsible for half of that cost. I only have about $50,000 in savings with no retirement accounts (a Thrift Savings Plan or 401(k) plan). My wife recently started working for...

Joe Biden's Twitter account was among those hit by the hackers Twitter has suffered what they described as a ‘coordinated social engineering attack’, which makes it sound so much more sinister than a mere ‘hack’.

Although many users knew the gesture was the evil working of a cybercriminal, others replied they sent money to the listed account. A tweet surfaced on Elon Musk's Twitter account around 4:30pm ET Wednesday that tells users if...
