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).
- Hillary Clinton has picked Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine as her running mate. He was considered a favorite for the ticket.
- At least 10 people, including the gunman, are dead after a shooting at a mall in Munich, Germany.
- ISIS has claimed responsibility for a bombing Saturday that killed at least 80 people in Afghanistan.
