I Let The Apple Watch Run My Life For 48 Hours — It's a beautiful Sunday afternoon in Brooklyn and I am screaming at my own wrist. I'm late and walking with purpose down Flatbush Avenue and yelling at my watch, in a halting, robotic voice, " I'M - AT - FIFTH - AND - FLATBUSH!"

Neil From Time Warner Cable Customer Service Thinks The Merger Is Dead — Comcast is planning to drop its merger plans with Time Warner, according to a report from Bloomberg News. Neither company has publicly confirmed or denied the report. So BuzzFeed News decided to go directly to the people who hold the true power in both corporations: the online customer service chat team.

Twitter Just Trademarked “Tweetstorm”; This Is Why They Matter — Yesterday, it was reported that Twitter filed a trademark application for the term "Tweetstorm," and I have some thoughts about this. Lol. Glad that's out of our systems. As the tweetstorm evolves from a rare behavior practiced by a small group of Twitter power users to a legitimate, trademark-able Thing, it's worth reflecting on what it is and what it means for a social network that is increasingly coming to influence the way we communicate, argue, and organize.

Facebook Is Basically Time Warner Cable — This week, the research firm Piper Jaffray issued its biannual teen research report, revealing some seemingly bleak news for Facebook: Only 14% of teens consider Facebook their most important social network. This is noteworthy in that the figure is down 19% since 2013.

Lines Are For Losers: The Anti-Hype Strategy Of The Apple Watch — On Friday morning, you'll be able to wander into an Apple Store an try on a watch, but you won't be able to walk out with it on your wrist. In fact, you won't even be able to buy one there - you'll have to go online for that.

How The Screenshort Could Save Us From Horrible Headlines — So far screenshorts - screenshots of text shared on social media - have had an excellent 2015. They're bleeding from their origins on Twitter and Instagram out into Facebook and across the web as the most effective way to share blurbs of text. Media companies have noticed and have begun professionalizing the screenshort.

Periscope Is Eating Away At Meerkat And Here's The Chart That Proves It — Meerkat, the darling livestreaming video app of SXSW faced stiff new competition yesterday when Twitter finally rolled out its own app, Periscope, to the iOS app store. The app does many of the same things and features a sleek interface and design that many are finding preferable to Meerkat.

Facebook Is Eating The Internet — For years now there've been two competing versions of Facebook. It's either an app on your phone or it's your entire homescreen. It's a big part of the internet or it's the internet. Today, at F8, the social networking giant's developer conference, Facebook just made a strong case that it's becoming the latter version.
