Twitter exploring ‘undo send’ feature
Twitter Inc. is testing an “undo send” function that would give users a short time to withdraw a tweet before it is posted, the company confirmed on March 5.
App researcher Jane Manchun Wong, who searches for unannounced social media features by looking at the sites’ code, tweeted an animation showing a tweet with a spelling error where an “undo” button was available before a short timer ran out.
A Twitter spokeswoman said the feature was being tested as part of the company’s exploration of how subscriptions could work on the platform. She said Twitter would be testing and iterating possible paid-for features over time. (Reuters)
Data from 500M Facebook users leaked online
Details from more than 500 million Facebook users have been found available on a website for hackers.
The information appears to be several years old, but it is another example of the vast amount of information collected by Facebook and other social media sites, and the limits to how secure that information is.
The availability of the data was first reported by news site Business Insider. The report said the information, from 106 countries, includes phone numbers, Facebook IDs, full names, locations, birthdates and email addresses. (AP)
