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).
- A draft of a plan to repeal Obamacare was released that'll block federal funds from Planned Parenthood and cut healthcare benefits granted under the law.
- The widow of a Kansas immigrant who was allegedly killed by a white nationalist demanded answers from the government about stopping hate crimes in the US.
- Time to change your passwords: Uber and Fitbit are among the millions of websites that may have been compromised 🔐
- A billboard in North Carolina that claims "Real men provide. Real women appreciate it," has sparked controversy across the country 👀
