Twitter Is Now Worth Less Than Many of the Unicorns

wired.com — Jack Dorsey believes in Twitter's future. "Twitter's here to stay!" he tweeted just before yesterday's Superbowl. "By becoming more Twitter-y!"

A New GoPro and Periscope Team-Up Gives Both a Lift

wired.com — Just a year and a half from IPO, action cam maker GoPro finds itself a company in decline. Just ten months after launch, live-streaming app Periscope finds itself looking for ways to continue its explosive growth. Little wonder in either case, then, that they've decided to team up.

Each clip shows a house banner-Lannister, Targaryen, and Stark-with portentous voiceover accompaniment.
