  1. Twitter Rolls Out Taller Image Crops For Android And iOS Today Twitter today announced that it’s rolling out image crops for its Android and iOS apps that allow for taller, bigger, better images in posts. Of course better is really a subjective term. As there are surely some users who will not appreciate the taller image crops that Twitter has to offer. Nevertheless, this is a change that’s happening. Having said that it’s also a change that applies to the Android and iOS apps only. As taller crops don’t seem to be supported on Twitter for the web. Twitter
  2. You Can Now Upload, View 4K Images on Twitter for Android Twitter just flipped the switch on Android and iOS devices, allowing users to upload and view images with a resolution of up to 4K. No more complaining about crappy image quality on Twitter, okay? To enable this on your device, head into the app’s Data Usage settings menu and select when you want the app to allow for 4K upload and viewing. You can choose Never, WiFi Only, or WiFi & Mobile Data. Totally up to you, but do note, 4K images come with larger file sizes. Watch out for that data plan of
  3. RIAA: Twitter Must License Music & Fight Piracy Without Charge The RIAA and NMPA are putting Twitter under pressure to do something about the platform's piracy problem. Slamming the company for allowing pre-release music to be distributed to the public, the industry groups say that Twitter is failing to meet its legal obligations when responding to takedown notices. Licensing is the answer, they suggest, but that is just the tip of the iceberg. Over the years, a number of music industry players have taken on some of the largest content distribu
  4. Twitter images can be abused to hide ZIP, MP3 files — here's how Yesterday, a researcher disclosed a method of hiding up to three MB of data inside a Twitter image. In his demonstration, the researcher showed both MP3 audio files and ZIP archives contained within the PNG images hosted on Twitter. Although the art of hiding non-image data in images (steganography) isn't novel, the fact that the images can be hosted on a popular website like Twitter and are not sanitized opens up a possibility for their abuse by malicious actors. An image tha
  5. Twitter now supports multiple 2FA security keys on mobile and web Twitter has added support for multiple security keys to accounts with two-factor authentication (2FA) enabled for logging into the social network's web interface and mobile apps. "Secure your account (and that alt) with multiple security keys," Twitter said. "Now you can enroll and log in with more than one physical key on both mobile and web." The company also announced a future option for 2FA-enabled accounts to use security keys as the primary authentication method while having all ot

  7. Everyone on Twitter Needs an Etiquette Manual After a year of quarantine, we could all use help relearning how to connect to people in a healthy way. In America in particular, unlike, say, in the hit Regency-era London drama Bridgerton, the consequences for committing social errors in 2021 seems low.Photograph: LIAM DANIEL/NETFLIX There’s no getting around it: Quarantine is making us weird. Humans did not evolve as social animals for thousands of years to s
  8. Twitter launches new ‘Birdwatch’ initiative to combat misinformation Today, Twitter announced an all-new initiative for combating the massive amount of misinformation on the platform called Birdwatch. Birdwatch is a collection of new crowdsourcing tools designed to allow users to flag tweets as misleading and to “write notes that provide informative context.” Twitter is starting off this new initiative with a separate website that you can sign into with your Twitter credentials. It’s clear that Twitter is excited about this new initiative but is still not c
  9. Verified Twitter accounts hacked in $580k ‘Elon Musk’ crypto scam Threat actors are hacking verified Twitter accounts in an Elon Musk cryptocurrency giveaway scam that has recently become widely active. There is nothing new about cryptocurrency scams on Twitter, especially ones pretending to be giveaways from Elon Musk. In 2018, scammers raked in $180,000 using a successful Elon Musk giveaway scam promoted on Twitter. Over the past week, security researcher MalwareHunterTeam has seen an uptick in verified Twitter accounts hacked in a scam promot
  10. How to deactivate your Twitter account You don’t need to keep doing this There’s no questioning the benefits of Twitter. It’s a convenient way to get your memes, world news, and pop culture hot takes all in one place. But being an active Twitter user requires sifting through a daily deluge of toxic characters, including white supremacists, bots, deepfakes, the president of the United States, and more. Plus, there’s no denying the stress and anxiety that the fast pace of Twitter’s news cycle, and the strain of con
  11. Twitter purged 70,000 QAnon accounts in three days Some accounts have lost thousands of followers as a result. Robert Nickelsberg via Getty Images Twitter says it’s purged more than 70,000 accounts for spreading conspiracy theories associated with QAnon. The company first began cracking down on QAnon over the summer, but now says it ramped up its enforcement following last week’s riot at the US Capitol. “Given the violent events in Washington, DC, and increased risk of harm, we began permanently suspending thousands of accou
  12. President Trump has received many copyright complaints on Twitter, a tally that has just increased due to yet another DMCA takedown notice. However, a policy decision by Twitter means he's been able to circumvent the platform's repeat infringer rules. The big question is whether he'll continue getting special treatment moving forward or will Twitter eventually have to nuke his account? Every year billions of citizens help to develop the Internet by adding their own content, whether that’s substantial works such as videos, music or articles, or smaller but nev
  13. Facebook and YouTube detailed their anti-piracy measures during a Senate Judiciary Subcommittee on Intellectual Property hearing yesterday. To the frustration of lawmakers, Twitter was noticeably absent. The RIAA had little positive to say about the social media platform either, accusing it of doing nothing to stop "industrial-scale" piracy on its network. At the same time, domain registrars were accused of protecting pirates. The US Senate’s Judiciary Subcommittee on Intellectual Property is looking for better ways to tackle the ever-present threat of online
  14. Twitter makes it harder for criminals to hack your account Hardware security keys can now be used for mobile logins (Image credit: Shutterstock) Twitter has released a new update that allows hardware security keys to be used when logging in from mobile devices. The social network confirmed that switching to a new security protocol last year has meant that it is now able to offer the same level of robust protection to mobile users as it does to those logging in via desktop PCs and laptops. Hardware security keys were init
  15. US Senator Thom Tillis is incredibly disappointed that Twitter declined his invite to testify at a subcommittee hearing to discuss how online piracy can be tackled through voluntary agreements. In a letter sent to CEO Jack Dorsey, the senator criticizes the company's track record, suggesting that "Twitter simply does not take copyright piracy seriously." The US Senate’s Judiciary Subcommittee on Intellectual Property is looking for better ways to tackle the ever-present threat of online piracy. Specifically, it’s working with various stakeho
  16. (Reuters) - Twitter Inc on Tuesday released plans for its new policy on how people are “verified” on the site, an area the company has long promised to revamp to address confusion and criticisms over the blue check-mark badges it uses to authenticate the identity of prominent accounts. The social media company said in a blog post here that it plans to relaunch its verification program, including a new public application process, in early 2021. It said a public feedback period for the new policy would open on Tuesday and run until Dec. 8. Twitter said it pau
  17. Twitter copies, well... everyone, with self-destructing messages Fleeting tweets vanish after 24 hours (Image credit: Shutterstock) Just about every social media platform out there has the option to post messages, videos, pictures and so on and then automatically have them disappear after 24 hours. On the likes of Facebook, Snapchat, Instagram and others the feature is known as Stories, and now Twitter has its own version. While the idea is self-destructing post is nothing new, Twitter has at least gone to the effort of
  18. SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - Social media giant Twitter Inc, under increased threat of regulation and plagued by serious security breaches, is appointing one of the world's best-regarded hackers to tackle everything from engineering missteps to misinformation. The company on Monday named Peiter Zatko, widely known by his hacker handle Mudge, to the new position of head of security, giving him a broad mandate to recommend changes in structure and practices. Zatko answers to CEO Jack Dorsey and is expected to take over management of key security functions after a 45- to 60
  19. Netflix has sent over a hundred takedown requests this week targeting tweets that are critical of the movie 'Cuties' and/or urged people to cancel their subscriptions. The takedown notices list the full tweets but only the linked media, which reportedly includes trailers, were removed. The takedowns are highly unusual as Netflix usually targets classic pirated content. Every week, Netflix sends out thousands of takedown requests, most of which target pirated copies of its movies and TV-shows. Yesterday, however, we spotted a series of copyr
  20. The social media platform says it'll retroactively apply its changed policy on hacked materials. Twitter has reversed course on its decision to lock the New York Post account, saying Friday that it's allowing the publication to tweet again. The change in stance comes after Twitter altered its Hacked Materials Policy, which is the policy that initially led the company to restrict the New York Post account. The social media platform retroactively applied the changed policy to the newspaper's account, Twitter said in a tweet. "This means that becau
  21. (Reuters) - Twitter Inc on Thursday widely beat analyst expectations for quarterly revenue as ad sales rose with the return of sports and other events, but it added fewer users than Wall Street had expected. The company said it expected revenue trends could continue or even improve in the current quarter, but cautioned that it was hard to predict how advertisers would react as the U.S. presidential election nears on Nov. 3, and that there could be a pause in ad spending. The San Francisco-based social media company said it had 187 million monetizable daily active users
  22. Twitter claimed it was reversing course late Thursday and would no longer forbid users from tweeting links to websites containing hacked material—so long as the hackers themselves weren’t the ones doing the sharing. “We will no longer remove hacked content unless it is directly shared by hackers or those acting in concert with them,” said Twitter general counsel Vijaya Gadde. The decision—a response to the conservative uproar over the blocking of an unverified, self-contradictory, and error-filled smear piece about a presidential candidate weeks before an election—would have brough
  23. NEW YORK (Reuters) - Twitter Inc suffered from cybersecurity shortfalls that enabled a “simple” hack attributed to a Florida teenager to take over the accounts of several of the world’s most famous people in July, according to a report released on Wednesday. The report by New York’s Department of Financial Services also recommended that the largest social media companies be deemed systemically important, like some banks following the 2008 financial crisis, with a dedicated regulator monitoring their ability to combat cyberattacks and election interference.
  24. Twitter is developing a new product called "Birdwatch," which the company confirms is an attempt at addressing misinformation across its platform by providing more context for tweets, in the form of notes. Tweets can be added to "Birdwatch" -- meaning flagged for moderation -- from the tweet's drop-down menu, where other blocking and reporting tools are found today. A small binoculars icon will also appear on tweets published to the Twitter Timeline. When the button is clicked, users are directed to a screen where they can view the tweet's history of notes. Based on s
  25. An international group of researchers has developed an algorithmic tool that uses Twitter to automatically predict exactly where you live in a matter of minutes, with more than 90 percent accuracy. It can also predict where you work, where you pray, and other information you might rather keep private, like, say, whether you’ve frequented a certain strip club or gone to rehab. The tool, called LPAuditor (short for Location Privacy Auditor), exploits what the researchers call an "invasive policy" Twitter deployed after it introduced the ability to tag tweets with a locati
