2. Fear of an exodus The second reason for the stock drop is a bit more forward-looking. Right-wing and conservative users have long felt less at home on Twitter, which is run by a San Francisco-based tech company peopled mainly by liberals. It’s also true that politically, Donald Trump has become the center of the right’s world—the GOP has become the Party of Donald. … [Read more...] about 3 reasons why Twitter took a $5 billion stock hit after banning Trump

Appealing to different needs As more consumers hop on the resale bandwagon, Chandra believes that different platforms can cater to different kinds of shoppers. Sites already offer wildly different ways to shop. ThredUp, Depop, and Poshmark tend to offer lower priced items, while Rebag and TheRealReal focus on luxury products. “Each seller on [Poshmark] is effectively building their brand,” Chandra says. “The ambient chatter on the site is the kind of conversation you might have in a store, when you’re asking questions about a product.” … [Read more...] about Poshmark’s explosive IPO bodes well for the resale industry, but how sustainable is secondhand?
“This season, I introduced Daryl’s poncho, which was inspired by practicality and evoked the Wild West,” says Womble. “I was taking a risk introducing so bold an item–the colors are stronger than what he usually wears and the ladies love his arms. It was a horse blanket that I cut and stitched with ugly overstitching. I wanted it to look like Daryl did it himself, to use to sleep and cover himself. I had to do it so it didn’t get in the way of the bow and arrow. Norman was very excited to get it.

Part of this connection between organic food and white supremacy dates back to Nazi Germany, where there was a strong ethos about the importance of nature, healthy eating, and natural foods.

It’s used to describe environments—which is why Trump’s comment about “shithole countries” was so dangerous, Simi adds, “because he was dehumanizing people and acquainting them with impurity.” And it’s used to describe food. … [Read more...] about There’s a disturbing nexus of organic food and white supremacists
Timing Is Everything Instagram’s expanded mission has done more than give its users options they clearly wanted: All those new features have kneecapped Snapchat at a critical moment. As the buzz around Snap’s potential IPO was building throughout 2016–the company finally went public on March 2–the rapid embrace of Instagram Stories altered the narrative around Snap. In its S-1 filing for its IPO, released in February, Snap specifically called out Instagram’s feature as a copycat that could hamper Snapchat’s future market share. The document also included stats that showed its app’s user growth having slacked off right around the time of Instagram Stories’ introduction last August. For some investors, sentiment shifted from thinking of Snap as the next Facebook to hoping it can avoid being the next Twitter. … [Read more...] about How Instagram Changed—Before It Had To
