At first glance it may seem somewhat strange for news organizations to favorite Tweets from their main account. After all, can you really be non-biased AND have “favorites?” But the “Activity Feed” is Twitter’s new beating heart, and if you watch it for long enough you’ll notice that different organizations dole out favorites in surprising ways.
Disclosure: @BuzzFeed favs a bunch of stuff with few discernible patterns (stuff from staffers, reactions to posts, etc).
- Republican John Kasich and Democrat Bernie Sanders won the first votes of the New Hampshire presidential primary. Polls close at 7 p.m. ET 🇺🇸
- At least 9 people are dead and 150 others injured after two trains collided in Bavaria, Germany, local police say.
- The Pentagon has confirmed that North Korea successfully launched a satellite into orbit on Sunday night.
