Twitter Wants You to Know That It Is Fighting Terrorists

wired.com — Twitter wants you to know that it is just as horrified as you are about the tweets on its platform promoting terrorism-and that, yes, the company is trying to combat it. In recent months, Twitter has come under fire as ISIS propagandists used the platform to promote their cause and recruit would-be militants.

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.

New Game Of Thrones Teasers Set Up an Epic Family Feud

wired.com — The slow morphine drip of glimpses at the new season of Game Of Thrones continues, as HBO released three new teasers today on Twitter. Each clip shows a house banner-Lannister, Targaryen, and Stark-with portentous voiceover accompaniment. In the Lannister version, it's courtesy of the High Sparrow (Jonathan Pryce), with the now-infamous Shame Nun ringing in the background.

Hey, Chelsea Handler Visited Us For Her New Netflix Show

wired.com — Congratulations to Chelsea Handler, whose news-ish, documentary-ish Netflix show Chelsea Does... kicks off tomorrow with an episode in which she visits Silicon Valley. Well, more importantly, she visits WIRED, where writer David Pierce takes her through all manner of gadget-y innovation she has little patience for.

This is Why You Don't Con Smart People Who Do Improv

wired.com — One-time MTV host Dave Holmes was lucky enough to be targeted by a half-baked scheme, quick enough to turn the tables on them, and nice enough to recount the tale for Twitter. Thank him, won't you? Atari will release 100 of its classic games in a single package for Steam, called Atari Vault, this spring, it said today.

SpaceX Still Hasn't Gotten Its Sea Legs

wired.com — Once again, SpaceX's Falcon 9 rocket booster has come back to Earth with the wrong type of boom. Instead of landing safely (and cheaply) on a floating barge in the middle of the ocean, it became the drone ship's third victim. Not that anyone at SpaceX is counting, so they claim.

Why I'm Watching Sesame Street for the First Time Tonight

wired.com — I have a confession to make: I never watched Sesame Street. When people talk about the green curmudgeonly guy who lives in a trash can, I politely nod to pretend I know who they mean.
