    Subway Coronavirus Precautions, Dinosaur DNA, and Twitter’s Fleets Feature | The Daily Show

    The coronavirus. The disease is now officially in 85 countries, and it has over 95,000 confirmed cases. And it’s the reason even white people have switched to the fist bump. “And explode.” Now, here in New York, because the city is so crowded, the risk of coronavirus is especially dangerous. Because, you see, if corona can make it here, it can make it anywhere. (laughter) And that’s why city officials are taking action. NEWSWOMAN: The MTA stepping up its cleaning efforts to prevent the spread of the coronavirus on public transit. Workers are disinfecting 427 subway stations, wiping down the turnstiles, handrails and ticket vending machines daily. In addition to…

    Rob Delaney: The Funniest Man on Twitter

    ROCCO CASTORO: Hi, I’m Rocco, and today we’re in Venice Beach at the Rose Cafe, which is a favorite eatery of Rob Delaney.

ROCCO CASTORO: I’m hear on a lovely Wednesday morning with the lovely Rob Delaney. ROB DELANEY: Hello.

    New York City Transit Reads Twitter Comments

    Hey @MTA, I know you probably got a lot of tweets every day telling you that you suck and you’re incompetent ,and that probably wears you down. So I just wanted to say… you suck and you’re incompetent. redesign train cars with openings on the floors for New Yorkers to put their feet through like the Flintstones to keep the trains moving. And also get electrocuted by the third rail. A spider landed on me on the 42nd Street shuttle. To whom do I bring my emotional pain and suffering to? Where did it land?! @MTA is the Fyre Festival of transit systems. Oh! That’s cold. That hurt. What is…

    TRUMPED: Why we should use Twitter like the President

    Student: My question is concerning that work, and I know you use different medias a lot. So you use documentaries and speeches like this and more in-depth books, but then you have Twitter and quick little things. It’s been really interesting for me as I’m studying government and English together to look at how the Left uses rhetoric. They’re very good at it. They’re good at making signs and good mottos and quick little things. And often times, I find myself using paragraphs to explain one thing. I feel that conservatives tend to think a lot more through things, and that it takes more words for us to do so.…

    I Let Twitter Make My Decisions In NYC

    – I’m in New York City, beautiful New York City! And today I’m letting Twitter run my day. But first things first, I have to get a bagel. Come on, post office, don’t do that. (upbeat electronic music) New York City, the Big Apple. And you know, I’ve actually been to New York a few times, but I don’t do a lot of exploring. I’ve always been here for work. So I’m having Twitter make all my decisions and, hopefully, I’ll learn more about New York. First things first, though, where should I get bagels? So I asked Twitter where I should get bagels. They said Tompkins Bagels. So I’m…

    Twitter & Facebook are censoring us—how do we fight back and win?

    Woman: You covered a bunch of topics in two areas, if you could touch on them. One is social media and its role in silencing conservatives. In recent happenings, Trump’s campaign manager was blocked by Facebook and Twitter is constantly blocking conservative accounts. So I’m concerned about how social media companies are becoming the law of what content we are seeing and what we are supposed to see. So it’s kind of controlling the narratives, so it’s quite concerning for me. D’Souza: You stop it only by (a) creating alternative platforms. Our secret weapon in all this is actually Trump himself. If Trump moved off of Twitter, Twitter would collapse.…

    Oh. Oh. Are we on? Um, we’re on? OK. Well, um, hi. Hi. Hi. I’m Pete Monster, a developer advocate at Google, and I think the internet is for forms. Forms are a pain to fill out, especially on mobile. Keyboards are small, you have to switch between them, monsters are impatient, and with our furry thumbs, it’s hard to hit the right key. It isn’t a surprise that almost 97% of mobile shopping carts are abandoned. I’ve got a few tips to improve your forms, reducing the pain for your monsters, and increasing the chances that they’ll get it right. Take the pain out of forms by reducing the…
