Now *this* is worth calling your senator about https://techcrunch.com/2019/01/18/facebook-lol/ … that is a joke, please do not do that

To clarify now that 800 blogs have written this up: this is not a Big Deal Scandal To Demand Congressional Hearings Over, it's just a funny thing I stumbled across. Don't harass the FB employees or @ me about "Suckerberg" or whatever, just chuckle and keep scrolling!

Wow, in its latest letter to shareholders, Netflix (correctly, if you ask me) identifies Fortnite as being a bigger threat than HBO:

"We compete with (and lose to) Fortnite more than HBO."

I hope you'll make some time for this new @NYTMag cover story by Gideon Lewis-Kraus, on the science of ancient DNA. I've been an editor for nearly 20 years, and this might be the most ambitious and profound story I've had the privilege of working on. (1/7)

Quoted @ddiamond

BREAKING: The HHS inspector general says “thousands” more migrant children were likely separated by the Trump administration than previously known.

First DHS said I made up family separation, that sources were lying to me and giving fake documents. Then they said it lasted only 45 days under “zero tolerance.” Today, HHS confirmed publicly what our reporting has always shown: None of that pushback was true.

Replying to @kevinroose

neither coordinated nor directed from the company. From an internal post at the launch: “We, unequivocally, DO NOT want Facebook employees to engage in leaving reviews for the products that we sell to Amazon.” We will ask them to take down.

Reviewing your employer's products is definitely against Amazon's rules. It's also not exactly an indicator of confidence in how well they're selling organically!

Speaking of coordinated inauthentic behavior, what are the odds that all these 5-star Facebook Portal reviewers on Amazon just happen to have the same names as Facebook employees?

Facebook removed more than 300 Russian pages today for "coordinated inauthentic behavior." @DFRLab analyzed the pages and found they were doing, essentially, sketchy audience development for Sputnik.

1/ A little insight into how people consume and spread false information. This is the highest-engaged post in the last 12 hours in a pro-Trump Facebook group with over 195,000 members.

WeWork used artificial intelligence to learn that people drink coffee in the morning so they should hire a barista

"AI" is actually a sort of dumb guy we all know who keeps mysteriously failing up and will eventually be our boss

I'll never forget waiting outside Adam's office for an interview when I was 22, sweating, clip packet still warm from Kinko's. @jpressler told me "he's really, really nice," and he is. Also enormously talented, but nice was the thing that impressed me.

"It’s impossible to overstate how peculiar it is that the most powerful man in the world, who will turn 73 in June, posts memes."

NEW: Looking for RBG on YouTube? Users who searched for the SCOTUS justice's initials this week saw hoaxes saying she was nearly dead. YT served up a QAnon conspiracy and virtually no news. Me + @drewharwell on YouTube's enduring trouble with truth
