A bug meant Twitter Fleets could still be seen after they disappeared

Twitter is the latest social media site to allow users to experiment with posting disappearing content. Fleets, as Twitter calls them, allows its mobile users post short stories, like photos or videos with overlaying text, that are set to vanish after 24 hours.

Goldman Says Saudi Peg ‘Here to Stay,’ Though at Cost to Economy - Bloomberg Saudi Arabia is sacrificing non-oil economic growth with fiscal policies designed to ensure its currency peg’s stability during a period of low crude prices, according to Goldman Sachs Group Inc.“Maintaining the riyal peg at current levels remains a key policy priority for the Saudi authorities,” Farouk Soussa, a London-based analyst at Goldman, said in a report to clients. “In a low oil price environment, however, this...

Consider Vesuvius Vesuvius, the only active volcano in Europe, is the focal point of Naples You can’t miss the volcano when you ...

Boosting Gulf’s economy leads to building more art districts, not museums | Financial Times Is the era of the mega-museum in the Arabian Gulf coming to an end?

That could be because it's Beaujolais-Villages rather than generic Beaujolais. The rosé was fine, but I wouldn't rush out for more. Ken's going to another store this morning to look fo...

‘There will be shocks’: Yngve Slyngstad, Norway’s $1tn man | Financial Times

‘There will be shocks’: Yngve Slyngstad, Norway’s $1tn man | Financial Times Norway’s sovereign wealth fund is a fairytale of global finance. In less than 25 years investing the energy riches of the North Sea, it has grown into a $1.2tn giant; it owns 1.5 per cent of the world’s publicly traded companies. Who more stimulating for me to have my first formal lunch with in six months, I think, than the man who for more than a decade presided over this behemoth — and used its heft to hold comp...
