This Is Almost Certainly James Comey’s Twitter Account

Digital security and its discontents — from Hillary Clinton’s emails to ransomware to Tor hacks—is in many ways one of the chief concerns of the contemporary FBI. So it makes sense that the bureau’s director, James Comey, would dip his toe into the digital torrent with a Twitter account. It also makes sense, given Comey’s high profile, that he would want that Twitter account to be a secret from the world, lest his follows and favs be scrubbed for clues about what the feds are up to. What is somewhat surprising, however, is that it only took me about four hours of sleuthing to find Comey’s account, which is not protected. Read More >>

The Bizarre World of Unsolicited Mark Zuckerberg Fan Art

Mark Zuckerberg, who made a fortune turning his own social anxieties into a website, is an odd person to fawn over. He’s not a great public speaker. His motivations are questionable. And he copied his fashion sensibilities from a likely sociopath. And yet! Some members of Facebook are enamoured with him. So much so that they’ve taken to blanketing his Timeline with their own, lovingly crafted fan art — each Zuckin' creepier than the last. Read More >>

Stock Reaction Gifs Are for Idiots

Last week, Google released a new, gif-friendly keyboard (still unavailable in the UK) that lets you choose from a selection of Fun animations. Perhaps you’re feeling particularly Mr. Bean-frowning-against-a-blue-background. Or maybe you’re in more of a you-go-glenn-coco-scene-from-Mean-Girls mood. That’s fine. But when it comes time to express those feelings, please, for the love of god, use your words. Because these basic, unoriginal thoughts are not what gifs are for. Read More >>

The Pope’s Twitter Mentions are a Living Hell

The internet is, generally speaking, a rubbish dump suffused with vitriol and poison. “But surely,” some might ask, “the one, tiny corner of Twitter devoted to Cool Pope Francis would be a respite for our bitter, blackened hearts?” To which the answer is: of course not, no. Read More >>

This Walled-Off Garfield Facebook Group is the Last Irony-Free Place on the Internet

The people you meet on the internet are, for better or worse (just kidding it’s always for worse), probably not what they seem. Years of bile and racism and flamewars and the MTV show Catfish have seared this fact into our brains. Yet somehow, while the rest of our hearts hardened into stone, one quiet corner of Facebook stayed impossibly pure. And that corner of Facebook fucking loves Garfield. Read More >>
