Just a few quick things this morning, starting with importing Twitter block lists. A couple of years ago I imported a Twitter block list, and shortly thereafter discovered that by so doing I had blocked well over a 100,000 Twitter accounts.
So, today Trump offered Senator Jeff Sessions the attorney general spot and nominated Representative Mike Pompeo for CIA director. These are awful choices. You can tell because they were nominated by Trump.
News broke today that Vine, the social video platform for 6-second videos, is shutting down. Which is not hugely surprising. It got its fifteen minutes a few years ago and has been steadily declining since then. Judging by the outcry on Twitter (where “Vine” has been trending all day), though, it was still pretty popular.
