Twitter Communities now work on Android
By Tom Warren from The Verge
  • “Since its launch in September, Twitter Communities has been limited to iOS or the web, meaning Android users could only join and participate in communities through a browser and not the native Twitter app.”
  • “Twitter Communities work like a private group, or like a subreddit. Twitter users can choose to tweet directly to a Twitter community, and that tweet won’t show up on their own feed or to their followers.”
  • “Group owners can choose whether people need an invite to join a community or whether they’re open.”

  • “For many brands, Wordle has become a part of their creative strategy.”
Google Has a New Plan to Kill Cookies. People Are Still Mad
By Matt Burgess from Wired
  • “Topics is just one element of Google’s wider Privacy Sandbox plan to bring about the end of third-party cookies in Chrome. On the face of it, it’s a move to improve user privacy. But many privacy experts have argued that it’s impact will be limited”
  • “As you move around the web, Chrome will record the categories you visit the most. Then, each week, your five most popular categories will be gathered up—Google says this process is done on your device and not on its servers—and a sixth random topic will be added to add some noise in the system. These six categories are then shared with the websites you visit and are used to target the ads you see.”
  • “Haddadi believes that Topics, in its current form, would improve privacy in Chrome, but that it still falls short of the standard set by almost all other browsers. ‘It’s just raising the bar for Chrome while a lot of other browsers, including Safari, Firefox, Brave, and Tor, already have extensive third-party blocking mechanisms.’”
