Facebook employees are staging a rare protest against the company for leaving up a post from President Donald Trump they say could incite violence. The employees, who began publicly criticizing the social network on Twitter over the weekend, have escalated their disapproval by staging a virtual walkout and symbolically changing their workplace profile pictures.
President Donald Trump on May 27 threatened social media companies with new regulation or even shuttering a day after Twitter added fact checks to two of his tweets.
The president can't unilaterally regulate or close the companies, which would require action by Congress or the Federal Communications Commission. But that didn't stop Trump from angrily issuing a strong warning.
The Milwaukee Bucks are investigating how hackers gained access to NBA MVP Giannis Antetokounmpo's social media and bank accounts after a series of expletive-laced and racist messages from his account were posted on Thursday.
The messages included disrespectful language toward late basketball star Kobe Bryant and a claim that Antetokounmpo had tested positive for the coronavirus.
An online public information campaign by Germany's health ministry which depicts Greece as a child under Turkey's care prompted reactions on social media on Monday.
A post on Twitter over the weekend about the campaign, which includes information in 16 different languages, includes a graphic depicting Turkey as a mother holding a child, Greece, by the hand.
The tweets were often presented as supporting evidence of the unpopularity of Vucic's opponents; others were picked up by both Serbian and Russian media as proof of the popularity of Russian President Vladimir Putin at the time of his red-carpet visit to the Serbian capital, Belgrade, in January 2019.
