"Trying for higher wages/For the nation/Less disparity"

Oh wow, full line: “Lift up your mojitos ‘cause she manages the Mint”

NEW LAW: MUSICALS FOR ALL THE CABINET SECRETARIES: “Five foot nothing”...”she can rock a power bob”... “She manages the Mint”... https://t.co/ET8MlOVsTF

Oh gracious there are New York Times HQ versions of this meme. https://t.co/P0DVvgT2qr

Alphabet is grounding Loon. After a decade of pursuing high-altitude hot air balloons as floating cell towers, it said it doesn't see a way to get costs down to make Loon a viable business. https://t.co/s51cNFjHbC

In today's On Tech: important perspective from @Lattif on internet censorship (the real kind). In East Africa, he's covered harm from both too much control over the internet and too little. It's complicated. https://t.co/66xPAVzRrS

Quoted @OversightBoard

The Oversight Board has accepted a case from Facebook to examine their decision to indefinitely suspend former US President Donald Trump from access to Facebook and Instagram. 1/5 https://t.co/qG6KC6qYDi

And the Oversight Board accepts. Let's gooooooo https://t.co/b2s8qQ1VkD

Urgent (not really) request: Has anyone collected all the best Bernie memes in one place? I need to see all the best ones please and thank you. https://t.co/Tj12SEWbf4

Quoted @edmundlee

Netflix is a real company now: $nflx https://t.co/vV8Yuq6Q7Y

I admit now that I was wrong about Netflix. I thought they would have to borrow money for a long time. Nope. https://t.co/sIkxI65ydJ

I remember when President Obama's Blackberry was a huge and novel cyber security risk. Did not expect "Peloton bike foreign hacking risk" to be a thing in the White House. https://t.co/uErLUO7W90

"I’m intrigued by the possibility of giving Americans real power over our digital lives," writes @shiraovide in On Tech. https://t.co/VQdLSl5new

The year-old California privacy law is sparking some ~interesting~ experiments including: Letting us appoint a digital helper to ask companies to delete our data or stop selling it. Maybe the digital assistant is...@ConsumerReports or just a check box on a browser. https://t.co/xFPSdp4WLm

New from me and @LeonYin: 6 days before Election Day, Zuckerberg told the Senate that Facebook stopped recommending political groups. They reiterated this after the Capitol riots. We found recommended groups with conspiracy theories and death threats: https://t.co/IXNPm3MSwR

What percentage of stories about Facebook are basically: Facebook said it doesn't allow X or stopped doing Y. OK, but actually...here is X on Facebook in spite of its policies, and here is Facebook doing Y. https://t.co/GocMmqVgcW

Quoted @JackMarshall

at this point large portions of consumers understand that a “plus”product means premium/paid. understandable that many media cos are leaning into it. https://t.co/E7GDmtuL12

I Iove this meme but I also think Jack is right. Does this mean I have to stop making fun of all the "NAME+" subscription products? https://t.co/NyfqWqTu1R
