George Soros, the billionaire philanthropist, has said that Mark Zuckerberg and Donald Trump appear to have struck a “mutual assistance arrangement” that will help the US president “get re-elected”, referencing Facebook’s willingness to continue publishing political adverts.
In a letter written to the Financial Times, Mr Soros accused the Facebook owner of “obfuscating the facts” after he argued for greater regulation of the internet last Saturday.
“Even if I’m not going to agree with every regulation in the near term, I do think it’s going to be the thing that helps creates trust and better governance of the internet and will benefit everyone, including us over the long term,” Mr Zuckerberg told an audience at the Munich Security Conference.
#DeleteFacebook It’s lame— Elon Musk (@elonmusk) February 8, 2020
Elon Musk has taken another swipe at Facebook.
Responding to a Twitter post by actor Sacha Baron Cohen calling for Facebook to be regulated over its content, the Tesla founder tweeted over the weekend, “#DeleteFacebook It’s lame.”
Baron Cohen asked in his post why Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg was allowed to “control the information seen by 2.5 billion people,” when regulators would not permit one person to wield the same power over water or electricity supplies.
A FORMER ‘Tinder gran’ has vowed to ditch the hook-up app and find her one true love
At 83-years-old, Hattie ‘Retroage’, from New York, is no stranger to dating.
The mother of two and grandmother of three, divorced in her 50s and has spent nearly 30 years on the dating scene – but as she’s got older, the men she dates have got younger.
After the initial success – and orgasms – from Tinder, Hattie has decided to ditch the hook-up app in the hope she will meet someone more long-term – though he still needs to be at least 20 years younger than her.
Hattie told Barcroft TV: “What I would desire from my life is a partner – one that’s turned on by me, and I’m turned on by him. So I would want a man, I would guess that’s 60.
The company warned users who haven’t logged in for at least six months that their accounts could soon be gone.
“We’re working to clean up inactive accounts to present more accurate, credible information people can trust across Twitter,” a spokesperson told CNN Business. “Part of this effort is encouraging people to actively log in.”

Video clips masquerading as being about beauty tips actually criticise China’s treatment of Muslims.
A US teenager’s TikTok video clip accusing China of putting Muslims into “concentration camps” has gone viral on the Chinese-owned social network.
The post appears to be about beauty tips at its start – but the young woman then changes tack to ask her viewers to raise awareness of what she describes as a “another Holocaust”.
An associated Twitter account has since claimed TikTok then blocked Feroza Aziz from posting new content, as a result.
But TikTok has disputed this.
“TikTok does not moderate content due to political sensitivities,” a spokesman told BBC News. Although, Douyin, the Chinese version of the app, on which Ms Aziz’s posts would not have appeared, is politically censored.
