    Twitter Is Finally Doing Stories

    Twitter will begin testing a feature, called “Fleets,” that will allow you to post photos, videos, and text that disappear after a short period of time. If it sounds familiar, that’s because it’s nothing other than the long-awaited debut of stories on the social platform.

    When Snapchat invented stories in 2013, people loved the way they could use the feature to share things without worry, and the app became a major hit. As a result, every social app began to copy it.

    Facebook started the rip-off race when it built a stories feature into Instagram in 2016. “They deserve all the credit,” Instagram cofounder Kevin Systrom said of Snapchat at the time. Facebook went on to build stories into every other product it owned: WhatsApp, Messenger, and Facebook proper. The tech giant probably would’ve built stories into Libra, its cryptocurrency project, if it could.

    With Facebook leading the way, the rest of the social internet followed. YouTube did stories. Netflix did stories. Tinder did stories. Even LinkedIn did stories. Yes, freakin’ LinkedIn.

    But Twitter did not.

    Today, Twitter is finally changing its tune. It’s testing fleets — its try-hard name that mashes together “fleeting” and “tweets” — in Brazil, according to a company blog post.

    Twitter is introducing this new feature one week after reports emerged that activist investor Elliott Management bought approximately 4% of the company and is seeking to replace Jack Dorsey as CEO.

    A good example of how the morally correct decision is maybe the financially negligent one...or, perhaps how the decision that is sound in the long-term burns in the near.

    TWTR and FB going to take a hit on Monday. This from an indepedent who voted LIBERTARIAN.
    The words Trump used were not inflammatory the way I interpret them. It seems to me that he was making a statement that the investigation into voting irregularities would not be dropped and that he was intent on pursuing whatever the truth is.

    My brother who is a LEFTY, and very interested in researching this topic came to the conclusion that AT LEAST the Georgia elections probably shouldn’t have been certified without further investigation.

    I don’t have a strong preference which party is in charge (I think they’re crooked both), but I do want THE TRUTH, THE WHOLE TRUTH and NOTHING BUT.

    And I think that free and fair elections should involve never ever having voting machines connected to the internet.

    Rant complete. Continue as you were.

    Georgia elections were counted three times, including a hand-recount...

    Multiple investigations, lawsuits, inquiries, etc., and no major fraud found. Some people live in an alternate world.

    60 lawsuits filed, all 60 tossed out, many of them by Trump appointed judges.

    If after all that the President of the United States is still telling his ever growing Qanon crowds that their side won by a landslide and the election has been stolen from them, and they have to fight and let their voices be heard... exactly what specific words do you need to see?

    It’s all just a distraction to keep you from each other. Reps and Dems are 70% alike, driven apart on the wedge issues that they put in front of you to quarrel upon.

    I’m not arguing, just asking you to consider the ramification of you happen to be wrong.

    THEY are trying to sew distrust and division. Stay UNITED. We are all more similar than dissimilar. Most all of us have ideals. We just differ in what is most important, second and so on.

    We’re in this fight together. Don’t get distracted in the muck.

    I don't think this is true. Polling shows a large bifurcation on numerous issues...sure, you can always find common ground. We are all human, Americans, etc. That's actually good to find common ground when you can.

    But some percentage of Americans are nuts. The Qanon people, the people who think the election was stolen, the people who think Democrats are infiltrated by Satanic pedophiles, etc...these people have lost their minds. Common ground cannot be found.

    This is confusing probability with possibility. What if you're wrong about <insert religion you don't believe in>, or birtherism/trutherism, GMOs, chemtrails, etc?

    The fact of the matter is there is no proof supporting your side and a mountain of evidence supporting his side.

    QUOTE="Chris Eastman, post: 139926, member: 12103"]THEY are trying to sew distrust and division. Stay UNITED.[/QUOTE]

    Who is "THEY"?

    Talking about divisiveness, Donald Trump is BY FAR the most divisive president of my lifetime. By virtue of him being an inveterate liar, he's also sewing distrust.

    On Similarities — Yes, we’re all human — one could argue that the two parties have similar, if not identical, long-term goals but differ radically in how to achieve them. For instance, both Democrats and Republicans want the United States to be a prosperous country, but each see government’s role differently.

    On QAnon — “Some percentage of Americans are nuts” Yes, no disputing it. I think some want to feel like they are GOOD and fighting EVIL. Some are easily conned. This is where we have to fight the divide.

    The THEY that I am speaking of is those in power that control the narrative, the press, the power. THEY keep us focused on fighting each other and not looking at the fleecing that takes place at the highest levels.

    “Donald Trump is BY FAR the most divisive president of my lifetime.” Agreed. I’ve voted both Rep and Dem (and Lib), and he is by far the most divisive. I’m looking forward the PE Biden. It’ll be a good shift for the country.

    German Chancellor Angela Merkel criticized President Donald Trump's social media eviction, calling it 'problematic'. On Monday, a spokesperson for Merkel said that it wasn't up to social media CEOs to regulate freedom of speech, but to lawmakers.

    Merkel is not the only European politician to openly criticize social media companies' decisions, showing a whole different approach to Big Tech on the Old Continent.

    Bruno Le Maire, France’s Finance Minister, said he was “shocked” by Twitter’s decision, adding that it shouldn't be up to “social media oligarchy” to regulate free speech -
