SpaceX’s Moon Trip

SpaceX To Send 2 People to The Moon in 2018

Talk about the trip of a lifetime! Earlier yesterday, SpaceX founder Elon Musk announced that his spacecraft company would be sending two lucky individuals on a trip to the moon…next year. The names of the individuals were not announced, but they paid a considerable amount to be a part of the trip. The individuals will begin space flight training later this year once they have cleared health tests. They will be traveling in a Dragon 2 Capsule, powered by SpaceX’s Falcon Heavy rocket, which is still in the design phase. Now this is a great business model, people pay millions to be test pilots of your new design. (Source: TechCrunch)

 

Delete Tweets Now

Remember that drunk Tweet? Or more likely Tweets? We’ve got an app for that. The app is called Keep or Delete, and it works in the same way Tinder does (ironic, we know). Just swipe right to keep or left to delete tweets. Keep or Delete also has an archive feature, and a timer in case you are unsure about removing a particular tweet. It costs $0.99, and is available for iOS. The app does not go all the way back to the beginning of your tweeting days, but it does allow for a smooth start to clean up your Twitter account and clean-up your personal brand.

Twitter Tackles Bullying

Twitter is taking new measures to fight racism, abuse, threats and harassment. It’s essentially a robust “time out” feature. The algorithm identifies tweets that include harassment or bullying, and then puts the user in time-out. Twitter isn’t just mindlessly flagging accounts that tweet a single rude word or phrase, but is more closely examining the behavior itself and the context. Moreover, the Mute feature has been updated to allow the user to suspend specific keywords from appearing in your timeline. (Source: TechCrunch)
