Who blocked me twitter
0 Have your say The internet is a weird place. Perhaps you already knew this, but if you didn’t, let me tell you it is. Not only is it populated by strange folk, it also makes perfectly reasonable people act unreasonably. Whether you could put me in the category of ‘perfectly reasonable’ is up for some debate, but I’m not immune to the negative effects of the internet myself.Far from it. I’m as susceptible to a combustive reaction as anyone, believe me. And as a now 42-year-old man, I’m under no illusion that I should know better, but in my defence I haven’t always been this age and the person I used to be in my younger years, partially stays with me.You see, I may be old now, but I’m still made up of the many parts of the people I once was, and all put together they make me. That’s the way I look at it anyway. Fortunately, I can tend to keep my more immature instincts in check. For some though, it … [Read more...] about David Preece: My Charlie Wyke responses shows why Twitter is now Hell’s Kitchen
Travis Durkee Omnisport Updated at 8:48 a.m. ET Updated at 8:48 a.m. ET Jarvis Landry has become a fan favorite as a star on HBO’s “Hard Knocks,” but defenders in the Bills locker room aren’t as fond of the Browns wide receiver. On a 4-yard touchdown run by Cleveland running back Carlos Hyde in the first quarter of the two team’s preseason meeting Friday, Landry lowered the boom on Bills rookie cornerback Taron Johnson. Check this preseason block..pic.twitter.com/JWhszL16pD— Jac Collinsworth (@JacCollinsworth) August 18, 2018 Landry wasn't penalized for the hit and Johnson didn’t seem bothered when asked about the play over the weekend, but Bills teammate Lorenzo Alexander was displeased. “Obviously, defenders get called all the time on stuff that is probably less egregious than that. If we're going to protect our football … [Read more...] about Bills slam Browns’ Jarvis Landry for ‘dirty’ block on rookie CB
According to a report from Fortune, Elon Musk may face SEC trouble for blocking naysayers, critics, and journalists on Twitter. Tesla CEO Elon Musk recently tweeted that he was “considering taking Tesla private” and that he had gained funding to do so, now it appears that tweeting such market-influencing details may not be entirely legal due to Musk’s history of blocking users. Twitter has been a legitimate channel for investor communication since 2013 when the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) stated that the social media platform as a valid disclosure method as long as companies warned investors prior to posting on the platform.Tesla agreed to these terms, at one point instructing investors in November 2013 to “follow Elon Musk’s and Tesla’s Twitter accounts” for more information. But now, it appears that Musk’s blocking of users that bother him on the platform may undermine the company’s current situation with the SEC. If … [Read more...] about Report: Elon Musk’s Twitter Blocking Could Mean SEC Trouble
Columnist Mark Kiszla answered questions about Denver sports in a live Lunch Special chat. Here are the highlights: I know training camp just started, but who looks like they could rise up as the Broncos’ starting running back? Kiszla: As camp starts, Royce Freeman has to be the favorite to start. We like to think sports is one big meritocracy, with the best man playing. But the Broncos invested a valuable draft pick on Freeman. And he will be given every chance to win the job. Devontae Booker? I’ve never been sold on him. My man Phillip Lindsay? Brandon Marshall has already proclaimed Lindsay could be the third-down back. High praise for an undrafted rookie. But as Lindsay says: Making the roster is a marathon not a sprint. He’s a smart man. De’Angelo Henderson can make some noise. And David Williams has skills, as they say. Gary Kubiak loves Andy Janovich. But unless the Broncos are going to put a fullback to good use, why have one on the 53-man roster? Do you … [Read more...] about Lunch Special: Who will emerge as the Broncos’ starting running back?
