TikTok’s epic rise and stumble

TikTok’s rise in the West is unprecedented for any Chinese tech company, and so is the amount of attention it has attracted from politicians worldwide. Below is a timeline of how TikTok grew from what some considered another “copycat” short video app to global dominance and eventually became a target of the U.S. government. 2012-2017: The emergence of TikTok These years were a period of fast growth for ByteDance, the Beijing-based parent company behind TikTok.

Trump will lose protected Twitter status after his presidency

Twitter has at various times acknowledged that Donald Trump isn’t bound by the same rules that govern the rest of us. This executive privilege has allowed him to continue posting comments that could have long ago gotten any normal person banned from the platform. More recently, the service has sought to balance misinformation/disinformation with warning labels that alternately sit below or obscure the text. Twitter was adding these at a frenetic pace in the lead-up to the November 3 election....

Election Day was largely free from disruptive cyberattacks, as efforts shift to combating misinformation

Polls closed in the U.S. presidential election on Tuesday without any significant or disruptive cyberattacks, according to cybersecurity officials and experts. Election Day wasn’t without its problems. Some voting machines in Nevada and Texas went down but were quickly back up and running, some voters in Georgia and Ohio had to use paper ballots after hand sanitizer leaked into the machines and the FBI said it was aware of robocalls urging Americans in swing states to “stay safe and stay home.” ...

Close US election results plunge social media into nightmare misinformation scenario

When Trump spoke early Wednesday morning, it became clear which long-dreaded election scenario an anxious nation was on the cusp of. “This is a fraud on the American public,” Trump said in remarks delivered from the White House, mixing his campaign with the presidency. “We were getting ready to win this election. Frankly, we did win this election.” Trump’s claim of victory is false — votes are still being counted in a close race — but they heralded his campaign’s intention to work the misinforma...

The judge's block of the ban is the latest development in the Trump administration's mission to ban TikTok from the US market o...

Far-right conspiracy theorists say 94% of US COVID-19 deaths don't count because those Americans had underlying conditions. That's bogus.

Patient Doreen Mount is comforted by a radiologist in the X-ray department at the Royal Blackburn Teaching Hospital in Blackburn, Britain, May 14, 2020. The CDC's weekly report on US COVID-19 deaths breaks down fatalities by age, sex, race, and comorbidities — health conditions that increase a person's risk of a severe case. Because only 6% of Americans who died of COVID-19 had no preexisting conditions, some people think those are the only people who the virus has truly killed. That's f...

300 and counting: Push by feds to arrest in US protests

CEOs from Apple, Amazon, Google, and Facebook had to defend their companies against what lawmakers called 'a pattern of' monopolistic behavior. Here's how each was grilled during Wednesday's landmark hearing. (AMZN, GOOGL, AAPL, FB)

Wednesday's tech antitrust hearing was a grueling six-hour event in which House committee members grilled Jeff Bezos, Tim Cook, Mark Zuckerberg, and Sundar Pichai about their companies' market power.  Cook, Apple's CEO, received what seemed like the fewest questions, but he was asked about the App Store and how Apple treats app developers.  Zuckerberg was probed on Facebook's acquisition strategy and whether it bought companies like Instagram to "neutralize" a competitor.  Pichai, who is CEO o...

The Photos That Ended Child Labor in the US: See the “Social Photography” of Lewis Hine (1911)

The average person believes implicitly that the photograph cannot falsify.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Facebook Videos of Her Trip to Standing Rock Reveal Her Political Awakening

Almost everyone who came to Standing Rock repeated the same legend. Someone, maybe Crazy Horse, had made a prophecy a long time ago—probably in the late 1870s—about the looming destruction of the planet. The “who” and “when” parts of the story were always fuzzy, but the prophecy was always the same: the “black snake” of darkness and discord was going to infect the land, seeping into the fires and air and water, spreading conflict and violence, and threatening the reciprocal relationship bet...

Pinterest just surpassed Snapchat in popularity. Here's how its unassuming CEO built the social media powerhouse by avoiding big speeches and personally meeting its first users.

Ben Silbermann is the cofounder and CEO of Pinterest, which, according to a new eMarketer report, passed Snapchat in users in 2019 and has a comfortable lead. Its stock soared on the news. In fall of 2018, Silbermann appeared on Business Insider's podcast "This Is Success" to explain how he built the company and came into his own as a leader. Silbermann built a community around his company by hiring people based on their passions, and by personally meeting Pinterest's earliest users. Silberman...

2019 ABC Supply 500 – More Racing, More Controversy

Rain and more rain was predicted for the 2019 ABC Supply 500 at Pocono Raceway, but the dark clouds weren’t just in the sky.
