Deciding where to post on social media is too damn hard now

Social media used to be so easy. You put your photos on Facebook and your definitely-not-million-dollar shower thoughts on Twitter. It was nice, simple, and stress-free. It’s not like today where you waste half of your day deciding where to post shit to.  SEE ALSO: Sorry, Apple Photos, but I'm leaving you for Google Photos It's a classic case of too much choice. There are just too many social media platforms to post to and it's increasingly a challenge deciding what format to use. If you're an avid social media user, 'm sure you've probably faced the same dilemma before. My social media meltdown came last week.

Twitter’s shareholders meeting was the same old hatefest — except for two things

Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey had a couple tricks up his sleeve for the company's annual shareholder meeting. Every year, Twitter must face the wrath of its shareholders in real life. Usually it's the same old thing — questions about the company's leadership and concerns about the platform's viability as a business. This year, Dorsey came prepared. He debuted a new live video tab in the company's mobile app. Twitter has been investing heavily in live video. Now, it has a place to live.  To go along with the product was a new Dorsey displaying a previously unseen confidence on stage before Twitter shareholders.

Recently fired woman lectures new grads on how to hold a job

Tomi Lahren, the massively controversial conservative commentator who was recently fired from The Blaze for her contradictory comments on abortion, is now attempting to advise America's youth on how to keep a job. Oh the irony ... After over 100 University of Notre Dame students walked out of their commencement ceremony on Sunday to protest Vice President Mike Pence's speech, a fired up Lahren hopped on Twitter to give the liberal "snowflakes" what she believed to be a reality check.  SEE ALSO: Tomi Lahren sues Glenn Beck for control of her Facebook page (and wrongful termination) The peaceful walk out, organized by the Notre Dame student activist coalition We StaND For, was praised by many, including organizers of the Women's March, but after seeing the video of the protest, the 24-year-old heavily questioned "snowflakes" who think "this kind of crap will fly in the real world." She sarcastically wished them well, writing, "Good luck holding a job, kids!" Read more...More about Entertainment, Twitter, Conversations, Politics, and Protest

NBA Twitter account refers to Dave Chappelle as ‘a fan,’ feels internet’s wrath

NBA social team, what are you doing? Someone behind the NBA's official Twitter account made a grave error Sunday night when he or she referred to Dave Chappelle simply as a "fan" of fellow comedian Amy Schumer.  Amy and a fan on @NBAonTNT#NBAGIF pic.twitter.com/sE46mCy0bS — NBA (@NBA) May 22, 2017 Chapelle and Schumer sat court side at Sunday night's game between the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Boston Celtics. The NBA's subsequent tweet features a GIF of the pair hanging out, with the caption: "Amy and a fan on @NBAonTNT. #NBAGIF". As Uproxx points out, the tweet was likely a joke — referring to the obviously famous as "fans" is a common tongue-in-cheek Twitter practice.  Read more...More about Watercooler, Twitter, and Watercooler

Twitter has all the answers for Trump’s ‘orb of doom’ photo

"By touching this glowing orb, you hereby swear your eternal allegiance to the international Legion of Doom, got it?"  That's just one of the many theories that began swirling around social media on Sunday when Donald Trump appeared in photos clutching a mysterious, illuminated globe in a darkened room alongside Saudi Arabia's King Salman and Egypt's President Abdel Fatah al-Sissi.  SEE ALSO: Twitter's co-founder is totally sorry for helping Trump get elected Of course, the explanation behind the seemingly odd photo is far less nefarious: The orb is actually an installation at the Global Center for Combating Extremist Ideology in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, according to The Washington Post.  Read more...More about Twitter, Donald Trump, Trump, and Watercooler
