Twitter Is Surveying Users About Abuse — 2015 seems to be the year that Twitter actually gets serious about addressing abuse. In February, its CEO released an internal memo saying that the company "sucks" at dealing with abuse, and yesterday the company rolled out new, expanded features targeting doxxing and impersonation.

12 Questions For Reddit On Its New Policy For Stolen Nudes And Revenge Porn — Today Reddit co-founder and new executive chairman Alexis Ohanian announced a change to its privacy policy that's designed to make sure users don't publish nude photos or post pictures of users engaging in sexual acts without the subjects' consent.

Instagram Accidentally Ran Survey Ads For — Yesterday afternoon, while thumbing through endless cascades of pink Valentine's hearts, kiss-y selfies, and blizzard prep photos, a number of Instagram users received a pop-up surprise in the form of an unfamiliar advertiser survey.

Like Uber But For Jokes — If you've spent any time following Tech Twitter, the insular community of entrepreneurs, venture capitalists, engineers, journalists, and interested onlookers who drive forward and comment on the day's tech news, you've probably seen some version of this joke: Right now, this convention is a way to cheekily present a thing.

Google Hints At YouTube Kids Rollout With New Online Survey — Google's long-rumored YouTube for kids service may be just around the corner. Currently the company is running web surveys asking prospective users to indicate their preference on a series of possible paid features, like this one found by BuzzFeed News on The Daily Mirror: Last March, The Information reported that YouTube was mulling a service aimed toward children 10 and under.

Here's What Real People Actually Want From Twitter — Just now Twitter announced its latest earnings report.

The problem: Twitter had and continues to have a growth problem.

I Went To Philadelphia’s Pre-Dawn Wing Eating Contest And Stared The Devil Right In The Face — It's Jan. 26, 2001, and Matt "Sloth" Dutton has just consumed dozens of chicken wings in minutes. He doesn't know it, but in just a moment he's about to immortalize himself. His eyes glaze over and Dutton flashes the thousand-yard stare that's graced the face of countless competitive eaters before him.

Philly Radio Station Releases Video Of Chris Christie Falling Off A Chair — The video was shown at Philadelphia's annual Wing Bowl, and was apparent payback for Christie supporting the Dallas Cowboys.

Twitter Fights For Its Future With Native Video And Group Chats — Twitter is about to get bigger, and yet smaller too. Today, the company announced it is rolling out two new and substantial features to its service: private chatrooms, and a tool that lets people capture, edit, and share videos. Either alone would be a big deal, but taken together, this feels almost like an entirely new service.

TK TK POSSIBLE TECH ANGLES FOR NYC BLIZZARD DO NOT PUBLISH LOL — 1. This One Tweet Perfectly Sums Up The Reason Why We Are Getting All This Snow 2. Post about Seamless. Seamless hacks?
