The Twitter Meltdown (again)

I don’t really have anything enlightening to say about Elon Musk kicking journalists off Twitter, except that it’s not really surprising. He seems to be rocking from one crisis to another. Has the Twitter Terms of Service been changed to, “Don’t hurt Elon’s feelings”? CNN journalist, Donie O’Sullivan shared an […]


Backup your social media accounts

I’ll keep this short. You should download your Twitter data, Facebook data, and as you probably have that too, your Google data. You never know when you might be banned from using them, even accidentally. After you’ve saved that data, go to Instagram and Reddit and do the same! Twitter […]


I was permanently banned by Facebook

My Facebook account was permanently banned on Wednesday along with all the people who take care of the Cork Skeptics page. We’re still not sure why but it might have something to do with the Facebook algorithm used to detect far-right conspiracy groups. When your account is disabled you’re given […]


St. Patrick’s Day 2020

This year the festival is cancelled because of COVID-19, but it was a busy day nonetheless as Gavan Reilly summarises: That didn’t stop people all around the country holding their own parades and singing to the neighbours! I’ve added a selection I found on Twitter to the end of this […]


New Tweet notifications for …

A few months ago my Twitter notification icon lit up announcing one new event. Tapping into it I saw something odd. “New Tweet notifications for” was a new one. I had no idea what setting enabled this abomination. Every time I visited the site or opened the app I’d see […]


Is Elon Musk giving away Bitcoin?

No, of course not. Whenever the title of a post asks a questions, “no” is nearly always the answer. Saved you a click here if you read the preview on your favourite social media platform. This morning I heard on the latest Smashing Security podcast that a verified Twitter account […]


Twitter: Prove you’re human

Well, that was weird. I hit like on a sarcastic tweet about Brexit and Twitter forced me to prove I was a human because I broke the rules apparently. It just goes to show that when you rely on a site you don’t control or own to publish you don’t […]


The Irish Citizenship Test

I saw this on reddit a few days ago but this morning Rick O’Shea retweeted this 2fm tweet announcing the sale of a poster with the image above: The Citizenship Test Poster! On sale now & with all profits going to Médecins sans Frontières, the world’s… You can buy […]

Battlefield Tweeters

A lot of Battlefield players are also on Twitter, here’s a few of them: Donncha – that’s me!
