  1. New Twitter Changes Will Clog Up Your Feed With Tweets You Didn’t Want to See

    This is why we can't have nice things.

    We were pretty happy last week that Twitter was finally going to take its harassment problem seriously, even if we weren't thrilled with how long it's gone on or the circumstances that brought about the change of heart.

  3. Twitter Vows to Improve Anti-Harassment Policies After Trolls Go After Zelda Williams

    ABOUT. DANG. TIME.

    A lot of us got disgusted with the state of humanity yesterday after it came out that Robin Williams' daughter was bullied off social media in the wake of her father's death, in part by two scum-of-the-Earth trolls who sent her photoshopped pictures of her father's body.

I'm going to try real hard not to be cynical about this, you guys.

    #Pffffffffffft!

    Earlier this August, the Journal of Nervous and Mental Disease published a study that may have alarmed Internet users who find mental health or wellness support online: based on one troubling case study, the researchers feared Twitter may "aggravate or even induce psychotic symptoms" in predisposed users.

  9. In Space, No One Can Hear You ROFL

    Space jokes coast to coast.

    Still not following all of the astronauts—seriously, just every single one of them—on Twitter, despite how many times we suggest it? Here's another great reason you should be: space jokes. This one comes from Astronaut Reid Wiseman who is currently aboard the ISS, and it's so great that I'm only a little disappointed it didn't come with a picture, because he's been tweeting a lot of amazing ones.
