David Harbour Dances With Penguins. Learns Valuable Lesson In Process
Ever since season 2 of Stranger Things arrived, fans have been obsessed with David Harbour and his dance moves. Harbour originally asked Greenpeace how many retweets he would need to do the Hopper dance with some penguins. Greenpeace responded with 200k. So Harbour pleaded to the internet gods and with this being the internet, you know it worked (within 5 hours, too). A couple of days ago, the magical event happened, with Harbour’s moves highlighting the conservation efforts of ProtectTheAntarctic.org.
What a beautiful story.

Facebook: Champion Of The Downtrodden?
Before you think this is another “Facebook is selling your information” article, you’re… half right. Facebook has provided data to Stanford economics professor, Raj Chetty and his study on inequality. The study aims to “understand essentially whether you can network yourself out of poverty,” according to Chetty. This is like that scene from Jurassic Park where the T-Rex who’d been chasing you all along ends up saving you from the velociraptors. Don’t question it. It’s exactly like that. 
Facebook turns face.

Turbulence Or Flatulence?
So, the internet just found out that a flight from Dubai to Amsterdam had to make an emergency landing because a passenger wouldn’t stop farting. We’re not going to judge. We understand that sometimes people have gas problems. Twitter, on the other hand… Most users are behind the guy, others… made snakes on a plane references. 🤔 Be glad next time you sit next to a screaming child instead of Sir Fartsalot.
Those aren't contrails coming off the side of the plane.

Twitter Terminates Bots
In the wake of bots taking over social media, Twitter has announced that it will ban bulk tweeting and duplicate accounts in a huge crackdown. No longer will bots be able to spam identical or similar tweets, or from multiple accounts at once. As a result, the Conservative Twittosphere is freaking out. using the hashtag #TwitterLockOut (and completely not understanding that bots aren’t real followers). In any case, much like John Connor from the Terminator series, Twitter is keeping the future bot free.
