Insta-Blam
Instagram is blowin’ up! The app reported that it has a total of 800 million monthly users, and 500 million daily. Those are crazy numbers, and considering their recent announcements to further improve their web-based profiles, we can only expect it to grow even more.
Wow! That's more people than all of North America.

Twitter Doubles Up
Big Twitter news today: the social media platform’s famously brief tweets may become up to 280 characters in the future, as the increased tweet limit is currently being tested for select users. The struggle to fit an article link and a short commentary might be finally over, though people aren’t too jazzed about it.

And The Winner Is...
Last night’s Streamy Awards saw some surprise winners, with Casey Neistat only taking home 2 of the 6 awards he was nominated for. Sugar Pine 7 took home the big award of the night, Show of the Year, with Dolan Twins snagging Creator(s) of the Year. With the biggest and best of video creation on the internet coming together for 8 straight years, we are always excited to see which of our favourite YouTubers took home a prize!

It’s been described as ‘The Amazing Race’ by the Mayor of Ottawa, as he and his peers in Tucson, Tulsa, Chicago, and Philadelphia have been preparing to throw all their resources at securing their city as Amazon’s new home. 
This is how we picture Amazon HQ right now, receiving fabulous gifts from these cities.

High Flying Ideas For Air France
Has Air France gone too far? While they are fully embracing the unique needs of the millennial generation, the aim of their new airline Joon is framing itself as “VR, a fashion brand, an entertainment channel” and promises a “rooftop bar”. Not only are some of their aims stretching the realm of the possible, but is it enough to get millennials to buy into it?
