What Will Ensure Your Social Media Protest Is Overrun By Trolls?

wired.com — A hashtag. (This post was inspired by the New York Times.) Billionaire investor and Facebook board member Peter Thiel has never shied away from contrarian ideas.

Thanks For the Mortality Check, CNN’s Many Countdown Clocks!

wired.com — Everything in life is a countdown to something- an election, a Trump speech, another Russian hack -but, in the end, we're all counting down to the same thing: death.

Sorry, But Your Astute Election Posts Aren’t Changing Anybody’s Mind

wired.com — You've had it with this election cycle. The name-calling. The baby-banishing. The multitudinous email scandals. So you log onto Facebook and fire off a post pumping Hillary Clinton, defending Donald Trump, or, perhaps, reminding everyone that Jill Stein exists.

Trump’s Second Amendment Line Probably Won’t Land Him in Jail

wired.com — During a campaign speech this afternoon in Wilmington, North Carolina, Donald Trump told his audience that if Hillary Clinton wins the presidency and they disagree with her choice of Supreme Court judges, well ... If she gets to pick her judges, nothing you can do, folks.
