#twitter might turn into Reddit. They’ve been experimenting with votes on tweets but it’s still unclear whether they’ll move forward with this features.
#facebook did what it does best: if a startup with great potential is born, buy it. If it refuses to be acquired, copy it.
PrivacyTools is after a new name! Please submit your name ideas in the link bellow:
A newly discovered hole in #linux file system #security allows any local user to get root access to the system. If you're the admin of a multi-user system running a Linux version older than 5.13.4, you gotta patch now!
#google is sunsetting its bookmarks service in a couple of months. It must not have gained traction during its 16-year service. I know I’ve never heard of it.

#firefox now extends it's Total Cookie Protection to private browsing windows. This protection restricts 3rd party cookies to the domains they were first triggered from which has a considerable impact on cross-site tracking.
Rumors were right! #Twitter just launched their subscription plan dubbed "Twitter Blue". For few bucks a month users are able to organize tweets in bookmark folders and have the ability to delete tweets.
No thanks, I can do all that and then some here on #mastodon. Over here, we're all equal. None of that "I'm verified, I'm blue/premium" BS.
I make computers do things.
