Celebrities Stream Fortnite: Break Records & Twitter
It’s blowing up Twitter, Twitch, and just about everywhere. Drake, esports gamer Ninja, Travis Scott, Kim Dotcom, and NFL wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster played Fortnite and streamed it on Twitch. 2018 has been a tough year so far, but much like the Avengers, these heroes came together when we needed them most. They shattered records (over 600,000 tuned in to watch) and inspired some fantastic memes. Players are now also asking for a “Hotline Bling” style dance in the game too. Why not? The game already has Backpack Kid’s and Marlon Webb’s dances…

DriveHer: Like Uber, Just Safer
A women-only ride-hailing app, DriveHer could be available as early as this summer. After some bad experiences in taxis, the awesome Aisha Addo set out to help women feel safe and empower businesswomen also. On the one hand, this app makes us very happy. On the other, it makes us feel sad that it has to be a thing in the first place.
We can't wait!

Why, Snapchat? Just Why?
Today in “How the hell did this ad make it this far without being pulled?” news: Snapchat ran an ad which asked people if they would rather slap Rihanna or punch Chris Brown… That’s right, you read that correctly. Given that Chris Brown pleaded guilty to assaulting Rihanna in 2009, this has got to be one of the most deeply unsettling ads that Snap Inc. has ever run. Naturally, Rihanna gave a verbal talking down to Snapchat, who pulled the ad and apologized. An apology which Rihanna has since refused.
Awful.
Awful.
Elsa Helps Frozen Police Wagon
Also doing the rounds on Twitter is this video of Boston attorney, Jason Triplett dressed as Elsa from Frozen helping a police wagon stuck in the snow. That’s quite the sentence, we know. Braving the heavy snow with no gloves and a gown to die for, it’s beautiful to watch. You know what she did as the truck pulled away? She let it go.
Get it? Of course you do.

Chinese Reporter Becomes Meme. Gets Banned
What started off as a hilarious news blooper has now served to highlight the extent of censorship in China’s social media. Reporter, Liang Xiangyi rolled her eyes during the National People’s Congress and the internet loved it. We’re guessing that this rare moment of humanity in a sea of scripted propaganda questions and rehearsed broadcasts struck a cord. However, any mentions of Liang Xiangyi were soon banned from Chinese social media and search engines. Couple this with the fact that Chinese leader Xi Jinping just removed his own term limits and it looks like social media in China has some even darker times ahead.
