We Asked Alums: What’s Your Favorite Story You Wrote For TPM?

I was once a TPM alum. I spent the summer of 2014 working as an editorial intern at TPM just after I graduated from college. It was a simpler time — Obama was still president,  Ammon Bundy was … Ammon Bundying, and one of our favorite characters to drag at the time was Chuck Johnson. Josh Marshall did his best to keep me around after the internship ended, but TPM didn’t have a full-time opening and I had already accepted a job at a local newspaper back home in Illinois. I left for about three...

Old Blogging Sites That We Thought were Gone

There are many old blogging sites we all have forgotten now that social media is such a big part of our lives. Little do teenagers now know, blogging was the viral craze for teenage millenials back in the late 1990s and early 2000s. At the time, there were so many websites where anyone could post their journals for free. Originally known as “web logging”, it was the first instance of personalized “presence” on the internet. These are brief posts of their thoughts and idea – basically an online d...

How to find someone on Tumblr and keep up to date on specific blogs

It's not as easy to find someone on Tumblr as it is on other social media platforms. Westend61/Getty Images The best way to find someone on Tumblr is to search for their blog on the mobile app. Tumblr, once one of the most popular social media platforms, is not the easiest place to find people you know. Because the site doesn't require names or any meaningful identifying markers for users or blogs, if you don't know a person's URL or blog title, they may be difficult to find. Tumblr's ...

How to add links to your Tumblr bio, so that visitors can easily access your best work and other social pages

It's easy to add links to your Tumblr bio on a computer. Westend61/Getty Images To add links to your Tumblr bio, you'll need to use a simple HTML code. Tumblr doesn't give you any sort of built-in way to add links yourself, so you'll have to copy and paste the code in manually.

My Current Favorite Comic: Alien Sherlock

I try not to cross the streams too often here, because y’all presumably come to find out about comics (and related movies and books), not my weird continuing obsession with Sherlock, but there is an ongoing fan comic on Tumblr that makes me extraordinarily happy whenever I see it. As created by Kitten-Kin, it started with the idea that Sherlock (as seen on TV, with the black coat and blue scarf) is actually a shape-shifting alien, as shown here. Of [...]

President Trump's clampdown on social media could hurt startups and cripple competition with Facebook and Twitter

President Donald Trump just signed an executive order that cracks down on social media companies, following Twitter's recent decision to add fact-check labels to two of his tweets. The order triggers a critical review of a federal law that currently allows online forums such as Twitter and Facebook to host third-party comments without being held liable for all that content, but also allows them to remove material they find objectionable. Trump directed the FCC, the FTC, and other government ag...

Giphy ruined GIFs, and Facebook ruined the internet. They're perfect for each other.

Facebook's purchase of Giphy makes perfect sense: both companies want to serve as many people as possible, without any coherent point of view or aesthetic. GIFs were once a vital and unique artform, but Giphy indexed them and made the same GIFs appear again and again — with boring and predictable consequences. Facebook did much the same for the wider web, stultfying internet culture. This is an opinion column. The thoughts expressed are those of the author. Visit Business Insider's homepage fo...

Elon Musk and Grimes gave their baby an unusual name with multiple hidden meanings, and it may have a hidden connection to the X-Men (TSLA)

Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk and the musician Grimes have given their new baby an unusual name full of hidden meaning, and it may have been inspired in part by X-Men comics.  The name, which Musk and Grimes say is spelled X Æ A-12, is pronounced X Ash Archangel, according to Musk. Archangel is the internal codename for the A-12, a US Central Intelligence Agency plane built during the Cold War.   The A-12 was the precursor to the SR-71 Blackbird, which Musk and Grimes say is their favorite ai...

Tumblr now removes reblogs in violation of its hate speech policy, not just the original posts

Tumblr is making a change to how it deals with hate speech on its blogging platform. The company announced today it will also remove the reblogs (repostings) from any blogs that were suspended for violating its policies around hate speech. Already, the company says it’s identified nearly 1,000 blogs that were banned for blatant violations of its hate speech rules. Most of these blogs contained Nazi-related content, it said. This week, Tumblr began to remove all the reblogs from these previously ...

It's time to admit 'Animal Crossing: New Horizons' is a dumb, boring game for children

"Animal Crossing: New Horizons" has been a quarantine hit, and many have praised its addictive, calming qualities.  But in writer Jack Crosbie's experience, the game has been frustrating, tedious, and immensely boring. The user interface is poor, the characters are meaningless, and the only fun part — playing with your actual friends — can be challenging. Also, Tom Nook is a capitalist overlord. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. A few days after purchasing Animal Crossing: N...
