Here are some of our findings.Attack, attack, attack — with a notable exceptionOver half of the president’s more than 11,000 tweets are attacks, aimed at everything and everyone from the Russia investigation and the Federal Reserve to black football players and Amazon’s founder, Jeff Bezos.

It is perhaps an understatement to say that Twitter is often a bad place to be on the internet in 2019. But what if there were a place where with only good tweets? That’s the idea behind Twitter’s latest effort,, a new account that aims to highlight the best of Twitter. Per the account description, Twitter Retweets will provide followers with “Your best Tweets. Retweeted.”
In many ways, Twitter Retweets is an extension offrom over the summer that also sought to highlight the good parts of the platform (and not just the endless stream of bots, misinformation, Nazis, and misinformed Nazi-bots). Twitter also recently in a similar vein, posting screenshots of good tweets on the photo-sharing site. It’s only natural that Twitter would eventually seek to replicate that on its own platform; the result is Twitter Retweets.
Kellyanne Conway: Trump 'needs to tweet like we need to eat'
White House counselor Kellyanne Conway defended President Trump’s Twitter habits in an interview with The New York Times for the newspaper’s analysis of the president’s more than 11,000 tweets."He needs to tweet like we need to eat," Conway told The Times.

Will this fix any of Twitter’s problems? Definitely not. But it does give the company a place to highlight the best of Twitter, instead of putting all the focus on the worst, in a way that builds on Twitter’s own unique platform features (mainly, the ability to retweet tweets).
If nothing else, the tweets are pretty good. I’ve embedded a few of them below to give an idea of what to expect.

Yesterday afternoon, François Fillon addressed the French; while a large majority of the cadres of his party and the population was preparing to hear him announce that he was withdrawing from the campaign, as he had promised on January 26 on TF1 if he was indicted , the LR candidate surprised everyone.

Outputs he made yesterday, some have marked, including the denunciation of a "political assassination" (compared to the real assassination of Jean Jaurès) or the "I will not withdraw".

Twitter fixes an Android bug that could have allowed hackers to hijack accounts .
Twitter has updated its Android app to fix a security vulnerability that could have allowed someone to see nonpublic information about your account, as well as take control of it to send tweets and direct messages. According to a blog post from the company, taking advantage of the bug involved "a complicated process" of inserting malicious code into the restricted storage areas of the Twitter Android app. The bug may have also allowed malicious individuals to access someone's location information and their protected tweets.The company says it doesn't have evidence that suggests anyone was able to exploit the vulnerability.
