Transport Canada Wins Star Wars Day With Hilarious Recall
Today is May the 4th, which has become an international day for recognizing the mega franchise we all know and love. It’s also a day that can be truly fun, especially when normally dull government agencies get in on the gag, as Transport Canada has done with a recall notice it issued today on Twitter for the All-Terrain Armoured Transport, or AT-AT as it’s more colloquially known. 😂  TechCrunch

The Secret Instagram Accounts Teens Use To Share Their Realest, Most Intimate Moments
If you ask anyone under the age of 21 where they post most frequently on Instagram, chances are they’ll tell you it’s to their finsta.
Finsta stands for “fake instagram.” It’s a separate, locked account that teens use to share everything from bad selfies, emotional rants, funny memes, and more to a small, select group of friends. This account is therefore the opposite of their rinsta accounts, aka “real instagram,” where their image is carefully curated for public consumption. Mic

The Red Swimsuit That Was A Hit & A Miss This Week
This week a swimsuit company called Sunny Co. Clothing made Insta users an offer they couldn’t refuse: re-post an image shared by the company, tag said company, and then receive a voucher for a free $65 swimsuit. Seems easy, right? The post however ended up being liked over 340 thousand times and clogged up the news feeds of people across the US. The company has since issued a statement that due to the overwhelming number of responses they may have to cap the promo and there may be serious shipping delays.
While the contest went over well on Insta, it did not fair so well on Twitter where users took to creating & sharing memes mocking the swimsuit campaign. This is a great example of how giving away free stuff can get quickly out of hand. Time
