Follow our live coverage for the latest news on the coronavirus pandemic. Twitter is slashing 8 per cent of its workforce as newly returned chief executive Jack Dorsey outlines his “roadmap” to boost users and revenues at the money-losing messaging platform. The cuts — which amount to jobs — come less than a week after Mr Dorsey, one of the founders of Twitter, returned to the job of CEO on a permanent basis as part of an effort to revive growth at the San Francisco-based social network. In a letter to employees, Mr Dorsey said his team was working “to produce a streamlined roadmap” for Twitter and its other services, including video-sharing platforms Vine and Periscope. One of the key elements unveiled last week was Moments, a feature that promises to let users quickly tune in to “the best of Twitter” in an effort to leverage its connections in real-time news. The one-to-many messaging platform, which has not yet turned a profit, has struggled to expand its user base above million, lagging rival networks such as Instagram and well behind the much larger Facebook. The overall costs may be lower than severance due to recovery of unvested stock awards, it said. Twitter’s partnerships manager for government and news in Australia, Flip Prior, was among those to lose their jobs.

They Reunited On Twitter. Posted on June 15, , at p.m. ET Jack Callow is a year-old from High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire, in the UK, and he is a law The girl in the photo is nowyear-old Rena Jutla, a student from and said at first “she wasn’t very happy the world wanted me dating someone else.
It is a truth universally acknowledged that a single man over 30 must be in want of a significantly younger woman. Just because we acknowledge this fact, though, does not mean we do so without a certain amount of derision and judgment. From the Instagram commenter who felt the need to remind Zach Braff that he is 44 after the actor dropped a cutesy emoji under a post from year-old girlfriend Florence Pugh to the collective eye-roll aimed at Leonardo DiCaprio every time the actor steps out with a new subyear-old girlfriend, the internet loves to hate an eyebrow-raising age gap.
The problem with this narrative, as comedian and writer Anya Volz pointed out in a Twitter thread last weekend, is that it tends to paint men at the northern ends of these age gaps as inherently predatory, rendering the younger women on the opposite sides helplessly preyed-upon victims of male exploitation instead of conscious, self-determined agents who are more than capable of pursuing older men as willfully and actively as older men pursue them.
This is not to say that such dynamics are never predatory and older men should feel free to relentlessly pursue younger women because all young women are actively seeking such attention. The first rule of not being the worst is to stop assuming that literally anything is ever true of all women or, for that matter, all people of any gender, race, age, sexuality, etc. It is to say, however, as Volz expressed in her thread, that while these conversations ostensibly intend to protect young women, they have a tendency to instead strip such women of their autonomy, relegating all women in relationships with older men to a state of presumed vulnerability.
Also complicating this already nuanced matter? The fact that while the internet loves to shade older men for dating younger women, it also enjoys mocking young men for … being young men. Meanwhile, both of these seemingly contradictory views appear to be thriving in overlapping circles of the internet. This idea that women are obviously drawn to older men over their useless something counterparts while the older men who date these women are creepy quasi-pedophiles preying upon a vulnerable population is what we might call a double standard.
To be quite clear, I am not here to rail on behalf of aspiring Leo Dicaprios against the great injustice that is men having to face a tiny bit of criticism for reaping the rewards of a societal dynamic that routinely puts them in bed with young, beautiful women. I am here, however, to suggest that liking and pursuing younger women as an older man is not inherently predatory or exploitative.

He tweeted four photos of himself and his classmate at a preschool wedding from 16 years ago, and joked about not having seen his wife for a long time.

Registered users can post, like, and retweet tweets, but unregistered users can only read them. Twitter’s origins lie in a “daylong brainstorming session” held by board members of the podcasting company Odeo. Jack Dorsey , then an undergraduate student at New York University , introduced the idea of an individual using an SMS service to communicate with a small group. The decision was also partly due to the fact that the domain twitter.
The definition was ‘a short burst of inconsequential information,’ and ‘chirps from birds’. And that’s exactly what the product was. The first Twitter prototype, developed by Dorsey and contractor Florian Weber, was used as an internal service for Odeo employees  and the full version was introduced publicly on July 15, With Twitter, it wasn’t clear what it was. They called it a social network, they called it microblogging, but it was hard to define, because it didn’t replace anything.
There was this path of discovery with something like that, where over time you figure out what it is. Twitter actually changed from what we thought it was in the beginning, which we described as status updates and a social utility. It is that, in part, but the insight we eventually came to was Twitter was really more of an information network than it is a social network.
