French Montana calls the Breakfast Club to attempt to clean up on the shit storm he caused with his ‘Nappy Headed’ comments to a young woman on Twitter. Not sure if this interview all the way fixed it tho.

Mexico’s government said it has extradited drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman to the United States, where he is wanted on drug trafficking and other charges.
The Foreign Relations Department has announced on Twitter that Guzman was being sent to the U.S. on Thursday, the day before Donald Trump is to be inaugurated as U.S. president.
The convicted Sinaloa cartel boss had been held most recently in a prison near the northern border city of Ciudad Juarez. He was recaptured a year ago after making a second brazen jailbreak and had fought extradition since then.

Yeah he likes ‘Tweefing’.
Twitter continues it death march to irrelevancy with the layoffs of hundreds of workers and the shut down of once hot app Vine. So in a nutshell Twitter is trying to trim the fat to increase revenues as to to look attractive to potential buyers.
Not sure why he thought would die but he is getting flamed on Twitter as we speak.
The young prophet predicted this along time ago. Bow down.
Is this better than Charged Up? Gonna post Drake’s official response to Meek’s twitter rant after the cut.
Lmaooooo. I love Black People.
Obviously they skipped over the thousands of vile racist tweets he gets every second of the day and threw out nothing but softballs.
Social Media has invaded every segment of society and the NYPD seems to have a serious problem with their officers posting selfies with their uniforms on:
via Daily Mail
In a statement in response to the probe, John J. McCarthy, NYPD Deputy Commissioner, said: ‘Members of the Police Department are prohibited from posting photographs of themselves in uniform without the prior authorization.
‘This does not include photographs taken during official department ceremonies. This directive is in compliance with the New York City Social Media Policy and is in part intended to protect officers from divulging identifying information on social media sites that may endanger officer safety.
Breach of these guidelines can result in harsh disciplinary action including termination. However sources told the Daily News that the female officers involved could lose 10 days vacation.
A group of female NYPD officers are facing disciplinary action after photos of them in uniform were posted on sexy Instagram account.
The policewomen posted photos of themselves posing away from work alongside images of them wearing their badges – allegedly violating the department’s social media policy.
He spoke the gospel with this video right here.
You would think by now celebs would smarten up and keep their nudes off of easily hackable smartphones. I guess not. Jill Scott becomes the latest victim to be exposed for the world to see. In a way since she has lost a bunch of weight that this might not be all that big of a deal to her at the end of the day. Hit the cut to see what Jill in all her naked glory…
via CHICAGO (CBS) — While out on an unrelated assignment, CBS 2 investigative reporter Dave Savini decided to stop by a South Side Subway sandwich shop for a meal. Savini was struck by the fact that the counter of the store at 116th Street and South Halsted was encased in bullet-proof glass. Such a sight would be common at crime magnets like gas stations or currency exchanges, but a Subway? Continue reading
The cornucopia of sexual content on hugely popular app Vine has been killed off by parent company Twitter. There has been a bunch of articles on whether they could whether the storm and keep the sexually explicit content on the app but they caved and people will now have to get their sexual viewing pleasure from the other kabillion sites and apps on the net.
via Huff Post
As we’ve watched the community and your creativity grow and evolve, we’ve found that there’s a very small percentage of videos that are not a good fit for our community. So we’re making an update to our Rules and Terms of Service to prohibit explicit sexual content.
For more than 99 percent of our users, this doesn’t really change anything. For the rest: we don’t have a problem with explicit sexual content on the Internet –– we just prefer not to be the source of it.
Still wondering why it took so long. Read the apology below from the CEO. Furthermore this will be a blessing in disguise for her, because this Oscar shitstorm will only make her bigger and people keyed into her new projects which include a movie with megastar Brad Pitt.
On behalf of The Onion, I offer my personal apology to Quvenzhané Wallis and the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences for the tweet that was circulated last night during the Oscars. It was crude and offensive—not to mention inconsistent with The Onion’s commitment to parody and satire, however biting.
No person should be subjected to such a senseless, humorless comment masquerading as satire.
The tweet was taken down within an hour of publication. We have instituted new and tighter Twitter procedures to ensure that this kind of mistake does not occur again.
While everyone may not agree Adidas’s tweeting shoe is pushing the social networking to be even more fashionable. Adidas is calling it the “future of athlete connectivity” as they prepare for the 2016 Olympics.
In a brief period of a couple of hours on Wednesday evening, Bryant launched a Twitter account, amassed more than 35,000 followers and then abruptly shut the account down.
This tweet was causing a stink so Game’s people had to put out the fire with an apology.
What a week for Twitter?
The network has had the circus that is Charlie Sheen join and get probably a record breaking Twitter followers in 24 hours, and one of their biggest celebrity users Ashton Kutcher’s account was hacked. With this happening if Ashton decides that he will no longer use the site because of this compromise will more big time celebs follow and ditch the service?
The two tweets following the hack were, “Ashton, you’ve been Punk’d. This account is not secure. Dude, where’s my SSL?” and “P.S. This is for those young protesters around the world who deserve not to have their Facebook & Twitter accounts hacked like this. #SSL”
The tweets were posted to his account @aplusk on Wednesday evening and were still on his page as of 8:50 p.m. Eastern Time (screenshot below).
Tiger Woods finally shows a pulse and answers of few fans questions about probably one of the funniest skits in history Dave Chapelle’s Racial Draft and his preference Tupac or Biggie. His musical preference under the cut.
If you ever wanted to know who owns your favorite social network, Business Insider has provided a detail infograph.
Sorry Marlon but these so-called rumors were warranted because I myself wondered after seeing some of your stunts on your television shows and movies. I guess after ten years you guys finally heard what the word on the street and addressed it.
The Twitter app, with its one-column tweet stream, now just got a sidebar with extra information. Now you can see more info, like individual tweets, people’s profiles, videos, photos and various “media” providers that you can see in-line.
Chris Brown get you momma off twitter!
Now people have a right to say whatever they want but I am gonna take exception to what Chris Brown’s mother is talking about. We understand you love your son like the majority of mothers do but you may have stepped in it big time saying that ‘MJ died so that Chris Brown could live’. I think that is a great disrespect to MJ,his family and is absolutely stupid statement and you need to be just happy that people are starting to warm up to Chris Brown again after his even stupider Rihanna incident. Chris Brown get you momma off twitter!
Joyce explained, “This tweet was a spiritual tweet!! No way was this meant to say Chris would take his place.
Did you know you can discount codes, be the first to know about new releases, and featured items? Well you can now follow Rock-N-Jocks the leader of New Era Custom fitteds on their facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/pages/Canton-OH/Rocknjocks/123830674296579 and on twitter at www.twitter.com/rocknjocks
Myspace refuses to die, and they have just rolled out some new features for profiles. Do you guys even care?
Here are some of the differences we’ve noticed:
- A new left-hand navigation: Profile navigation has been condensed into the left hand navigation menu under the profile picture.
- Focus on the stream: MySpace Stream — the site’s version of the Facebook newsfeed — is the focus of the the new profiles. You can view a user’s recent activity, comment on items and share content with friends.

(Just due to the fact that he had over 2 million followers makes this a story).
The debate about celebrities using Twitter has been chronicled in a bunch of different articles that have examined the pros and cons of the social network. Many celebs feels that this is away to stay connected directly with their fans. But it also has gotten plenty of celebs in serious beefs, disputes, and problems due to the frank nature of the discussions. Miley Cyrus, John Mayer, Chris Brown, and The Dream are just a few celebs who have deleted their Twitter accounts over things they have said that caused a bunch of bad press. Now it seems that rap star Souljah Boy has joined this group in the last day or so.
I guess popular tweets are now making the jump from the computer screen to the television screen. New sitcom ‘Shit My Dad Says’ starring William Shatner has stirred up controversy and is set to raise a few eye brows when it debuts.
Vodpod videos no longer available.
Yes the folks at the recently hacked Twitter have decided to change how the popular trending topics are determined, so gone will be the nonsense that people seem to spend countless hours tweeting about. I’ll let Twitter explain it via Mashable:
Twitter has updated the algorithm behind its popular Trending Topics feature, changing the focus from the most discussed items to what is “most breaking” and “immediately popular.”
Well I guess he could not take the constant barrage of people saying how much a douche bag he is for his racist and sexist comments over the last couple of years. John is pissed that he is not cool anymore. But Tumblr does rock.
“…the days of “Twitter: The Breakthrough” have passed; The Twitter-bred syntax isn’t really doing it for me anymore.”
“Finding out in 140 characters what a stranger has to say about you is like a mathematical equation without an established value of ‘x’. Who are you, stranger? What do you stand for?…”
Found this great article from my new favorite blogger Anil Dash, who exposes the reality of celebrities like Ashton Kutcher and Kim Kardashian with large Twitter followings that reach in to the millions. Though these guys have relished in the fact of cracking a million followers, Anil challenges that there is absolutely no value in running up the Twitter follower scoreboard. He gives great analysis on actually being put on Twitter’s suggested user lists and getting hundreds of thousands of new followers. Fantastic analysis and should be an article for individuals, small businesses and major corporations to read when crafting their social media campaigns.
Last week, I wrote a bit about what it’s like to be on Twitter’s suggested user list. The response to that post has been really gratifying, and I wanted to share a bit of what I’ve learned, as well some of the more interesting responses.
First, to recap: I had about 18,000 followers of my own back in October, when I got added to the suggested user list. (Let’s call these “organic” followers.) If I’d have continued my normal rate of growth, i’d have about 25,000 followers today, but thanks to being on the list, I’ve got close to 300,000 followers. Surprisingly though, I only get as many retweets and replies as I’d get with my organic number of followers.
Okay having sex on Twitter. We have reached a new low. Hit the jump for the anti-climatic twit.
Those pesky hackers have caused the hottest social network of 2009 to ban certain passwords to prevent another Iranian Army catastrophe we experienced a couple of weeks ago. Here is the list courtesy of TBI:
Wow. You would think Twitter would have a better defense system in place now but that goes to show you who really runs the internet. Story below:
via Huff Post
Twitter was hacked early Friday morning. Visitors to its homepage and domain saw a message from a group calling itself the “Iranian Cyber Army”
Twitter sent out a tweet at about 2:36 a.m. ET, acknowledging that the site’s DNS records were temporarily compromised. It said that the problem was resolved and in a blog post that followed, explained that the site was “redirected for awhile,” but that “API and platform applications were working.”
Miley expresses her feeling on twitter and the internet mid-way thru this interview with the The B96 Morning Show with J and Julian with Showbiz Shelly backstage before her Chicago performance. Skip to 3:27.
Wow! This was something a few years ago we would have never thought could be possible. Figures because the newly appointed head of Myspace is an ex-Facebook executive.
– High-ranking executives at both Facebook and MySpace confirm that the companies are in talks over some sort of content partnership—a development that isn’t a big surprise to at least one observer. Formerly intense competitors in the social-networking sphere, Caroline McCarthy writes, now “Facebook’s the one providing the platform for the content; MySpace is the one providing the content itself.”
While MySpace can boost its claim as “a pop culture hub,” McCarthy adds on CNET, “for Facebook, meanwhile, you could take this as a ‘look, we’ve won’ move. After all, it’s a validation of the power of the social network’s content platform that a company like MySpace—which used to dwarf Facebook in size—would want to use it for distribution.”
