Social Media: Facebook Fallout Continues
Facebook & Cambridge Analytica’s week just isn’t getting any better. Firstly, despite a message of hope from internet-daddy, Sir Tim Berners-Lee, Facebook continues to get pummeled with bad press and falling stocks. Even the founder of WhatsApp (which is owned by Facebook) has been joining in on the #DeleteFacebook hashtag. Now, we’re hearing reports of police storming Cambridge Analytica’s London HQ.
UPDATE: It appears that the police were investigating a “suspicious package” left at Cambridge Analytica’s office. Yikes.

Twitter: Too Twittle Too Late
Yesterday, Chance The Rapper proved to us that the internet can help people in dire situations. Today, well… the internet just came in a year or so too late. Back in 2011, Twitter user, itsneishabby asked her followers to remind her in 7 years not to have kids. Today, roughly 7 years later, that’s exactly what happened. The internet wins again - oh… She already had a daughter. Uh… congratulations… we guess?

Twitter: Amnesty International Takes On Twitter
Speaking of Twitter, they’re under fire from Amnesty International for failing to respect women’s rights. If you’re one of the largest social media companies on the planet and you’re failing to curb abuse at SUCH A LEVEL that Amnesty International has to get involved, we have no words for you. 
There's over 7,500 results for "facepalm" on Giphy and we've used most of them in the last week alone.

Memewatch: Avengers: Infinity War Crossover Comparisons
We touched on the huge splash that the new “Avengers” movie is making on social media. But now it seems the memes just keep on comin’. This time around, when Marvel stated that “Avengers: Infinity War” was the “most ambitious crossover event in history,” people decided to prove them wrong. This tongue-in-cheek meme touches on Space Jam, fashion, and a bunch of other strange team-ups. There’s something for everyone.
