    Microsoft has six weeks to close one of the strangest deals in tech industry history. On Sunday, the company publicly announced it was in talks with President Trump to buy portions of TikTok from its Chinese parent company ByteDance. For months, Trump has been raising national security concerns about TikTok, even threatening to ban the app, and now he’s presenting a sale to Microsoft as a last chance effort to save it. If the deal goes through, it would give Microsoft a new vantage on social networks and solve a variety of US national security concerns around TikTok’s newfound popularity. But there’s a problem at the heart of the deal that no one on either side has addressed — and...

    Twitter is exploring potential ways to further monetise its platform — including considering introducing a paid subscription model — the firm indicated today. CEO Jack Dorsey reportedly revealed the plans during a conference call with analysts to discuss the firm's relatively disappointing second quarter earning results. Twitter's ad-based revenue has fallen by 23 per cent from the same period last year — down to $562 million — as advertisers cut back on spending amid COVID-19. However, the firm's stock rose 7.34 per cent earlier this year when rumours of a subscription platform, 'Gryphon', first surfaced online — indicating investor interest. It is not known what parts of the platform would potentially become for subscribers-only, but Mr Dorsey indicated that such may...
    WASHINGTON – The Twitter hack that affected the accounts of some of its most famous users was directed at 130 people, the company reported, of which the hackers managed to change their passwords to 45. The San Francisco-based company reported Saturday in a blog post that, on eight of those accounts, hackers also downloaded account information through the “Your Twitter Data” tool. None of the eight was verified, Twitter said, adding that it is contacting affected users. Hackers downloaded personal data from at least eight users, suggesting that the move could be more than just a scam to collect payments with Bitcoin.

    June was a grim month for Donald Trump supporters on Twitter. The social media giant was adding warning labels to some of the president’s tweets, and banned an internet-famous MAGA “meme-smith.” Fearful that more crackdowns would soon follow, Trump supporters began to flock to Parler, a budding social network that bills itself as the free-speech, conservative-friendly alternative to Twitter.  Prominent Trump supporters joined the platform and urged their fans to follow, and the social media network surged on Apple’s App Store. Trash-talking Trump personality Dan Bongino took an ownership stake in Parler, and promoted it to his followers. 
    New York — The rumors began to circulate again after Twitter posted that “They will have their edit button when everyone wears a mask” Although these days there was a rumor that Twitter was planning to install a new button to edit past tweets, one of the options that users have asked for the most since the social network started, apparently it was all a joke. Correcting misspellings or changing the content of tweets is one of the reasons why Twitter users for years have called for the inclusion of an edit option. The rumors began to circulate again after Twitter announced that “They will have their edit button when everyone wears a mask.” You can have an edit...
    OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Facebook has banned an extremist anti-government network loosely associated with the broader “boogaloo” movement, a slang term supporters use to refer to a second Civil War or a collapse of civilization. But the platform didn’t try to name the group, underscoring the difficulty of grappling with an amorphous network linked to a string of domestic terror plots that appears to obfuscate its existence. Among other complications, its internet-savvy members tend to keep their distance from one another, frequently change their symbols and catch phrases and mask their intentions with sarcasm. The move by Facebook designates this group as a dangerous organization similar to the Islamic State group and white supremacists, both of which are already banned...
