Chelsea Handler calls Instagram sexist for taking down her topless photo



Warning: the following article contains content that may be considered not safe for work.

People love Chelsea Handler‘s outrageously crude and crass brand of humor — unless those people work at Instagram.

On Thursday night, Handler posted a picture of herself on her Instagram page mocking Russian president and bear-hating, horseback riding outdoorsman Vladimir Putin. Authentic to the original picture of Putin, Handler appeared completely topless.


Soon after Handler posted the racy picture, Instagram quickly removed it from her page, as per their community guidelines. Toplessness, at least for women, is against the rules on the social media network. Read more…

Channel your inner spook for our Halloween Vine challenge



In the eerie spirit of Halloween, we brought on a true mastermind of spooky art, Jennifer Messmore, to guest-host our Vine challenge.

We want to see moving candles, spine-chilling spirits, terrifying tales and other unsettling scenarios in your videos. Act out classic horror films or animate something like the Ghoulies in stop-motion. Shoot in darkness and show us flashes of red and orange. The scarier, the better.

Messmore, a Las Vegas native, is an artist of all trades. In her spare time she paints, draws, makes jewelry, refurbishes dolls and, of course, creates Vines.

She owes her “Vine addiction” to her sister (Big Red on Vine), who has been active on the platform since its early days. “What interested me most about Vine initially was the six-second loop,” Messmore said. “Eventually I fell in love with the community. I’m overwhelmed by the incredibly talented, creative, and amazingly kind people I’ve met there.” Read more…

What Twitter Fabric Means for Developers



Twitter has had a complicated relationship with developers.

In its earlier days, the social network encouraged third-party developers to build their own apps and services on top of the platform. But the company later began to roll out its own competing features (the most notable example of this is when Twitter created its own image sharing service, frustrating companies like Twitpic and Yfrog).

But Twitter made its biggest appeal yet to developers on Wednesday at Flight, the company’s first mobile developer conference. There CEO Dick Costolo unveiled Fabric, the company’s ambitious plan to win back developers. Read more…

Drop, Cover and Take A Selfie: Earthquake Drills in the Twitter Age



SAN FRANCISCO — When the shaking starts, drop to the floor, take cover under sturdy furniture and take a selfie. As millions of Californians practiced earthquake survival in a statewide drill on Thursday, they documented every (mis)step on Twitter

The annual Great California Shakeout improves earthquake safety by having schools, businesses and homes practice earthquake drills. August’s Napa quake brought preparedness back into the public eye, and may account for the record number of 10 million participants this year

At 10:16 a.m. Pacific, participants practiced the Drop, Cover and Hold On technique. That is, when you feel shaking, drop to your hands and knees, cover yourself by crawling under sturdy furniture and hold on until the shaking has passed. In most buildings you’re safest staying inside until the earthquake subsides. Read more…
