YouTube's In On It... You're All In On It!
In what may be a conspiracy theory in itself, YouTube’s algorithms may actually prioritize conspiracy theories, according to an ex YouTube engineer. The whistleblower claims that the algorithms that are created to maximize your time on the site may recommend longer, conspiracy-based videos because of the focus on watch time. Get your tinfoil hats ready!

"Why Not Me?"
The Lonely Island (yes, they’re still a thing!) has released a demo of their Oscar song and the internet is loving it. The song, called “Why Not Me?” features Oscar-snubbed heroes such as Thor, Wonder Woman and for some strange reason, Pennywise The Clown. The group states that the song was “financially and logistically impossible” - considering that it has a cast larger than Avengers: Infinity War, it’s easy to see why.
We'd still back The Avengers, though.

#MyNametagShouldSay
Today’s trending hashtag is #MyNametagShouldSay, which features people wanting to be called by what they’re really thinking when their name is heard. The usage of this hashtag goes pretty much how you’d expect it to. Think of one of those “Don’t ask me, I only work here” mugs, but with a hashtag in front of it.
Unless you need something. Then don't say it at all.

Bumble Tells Gun Owners To Buzz Off
Following nationwide walkouts and protests, the dating app, Bumble is banning gun images in profiles. Around 5,000 moderators will disarm the gun-toting profiles after the tragic events in Florida, last month. The #NeverAgain movement is still going strong. ✊
Bumble mods be like.

MEAT Flippy, The Burger-Flipping Robot
Uh oh. First robots learn to open doors for us, now they’re preparing our food for us. When will the madness end?! Jk. We love it because it automates one of the steps between a raw burger and delicious food. This rotating little chap is currently doing the rounds on Twitter. It’s flippin’ great!
If our new robot overlords bring us one step closer to more burgers, then we're all for it.
