Twitter co-founder Jack Dorsey, a St. Louis native, was on the ground in Ferguson relatively early after the shooting of Michael Brown, marching with protesters, tweeting pictures from the scene, and even handing out roses to demonstrators.

It’s no surprise, then, to find that someone has painted #Ferguson in huge letters on the wall at Twitter headquarters.
Some criticized Twitter for not allowing #Ferguson to trend on Twitter itself.

As TechCrunch explained last week, there are technical reasons that kept #Ferguson from dominating Twitter for the week:
…Twitter trends are determined not by the total volume of tweets, but the acceleration of those tweets. A trend is a reflection of that acceleration, relative to the acceleration of other tweets about other subjects.
So people who didn’t see a #Ferguson hashtag may have had nothing but their own network of friends to blame. Or they may have been located somewhere that the hashtag wasn’t accelerating more quickly than the other hashtags that were being displayed to them.
To be clearer: Twitter wouldn’t – and didn’t – actively censor or remove this trend.
#Ferguson did receive special treatment at Twitter HQ, however. What next? There must be more walls in the building.

Dear Republicans, please join the rest of us over here in reality. You’ll thank me later.
In response to a previous article, I was asked again and again for a solution to the problem I highlighted.
That is, what can Republicans do to change the narrative and win Millennial votes?
Millennials are somewhat infamous for not liking or trusting the government, or really, any institution at all. For Republicans, though, a great place to start is to acknowledge that political problems about which Millennials care and face actually do exist.
Here’s the thing about a two-party political system: It needs two parties. It needs two parties that work together, but more importantly, it needs two parties that live on the same planet.
Unfortunately, at this point in American history, conservatives and liberals, the foot soldiers of the Republican and Democratic political machines, are living in entirely different worlds.
Despite propagating the narrative of the country facing a number of serious, if not existential crises, conservative thinkers rarely recommend anything other than exclusively individualistic recommendations, disclaiming coordinated responses in favor of personal responsibility.
It’s incongruous that a group would proclaim there to be something deeply wrong with this country only to set forth a policy basket that proposes little beyond turning the clock back to the halcyon days of 2007.
To Millennials who completely reject the politics of these years, these conservatives come across as tone-deaf.
By listening exclusively to conservatives, Republicans are actively ceding entire social arguments to liberal Democrats. Sometimes, this population has bad ideas on how to solve big issues, but at least they recognize social problems.
If Republicans won’t even acknowledge such issues exist, there’s no debate; there’s no back and forth, and there are no proposals for alternative solutions.
From issues like global warming to police militarization to healthcare, conservatives often simply play ostrich and declare nothing to be wrong. Or worse, whenever they have a solution, it’s ridiculously individualistic, like buy a gun, or rambling about big, socialist conspiracies to take over the government.
In many respects, the Republicans’ biggest enemy is their own propensity for dogmatic reactionary statements.
Millennials are often “blamed” for Obama’s election, but now, more than half of Millennials call themselves “independent.” And, with the president down to a 40 percent approval rating, it would make sense for Republicans to at least try to make friends and find some common ground with these disaffected voters.
The outrageously different reactions to the Ferguson decision has been a case study for this phenomenon. Like most of the country, I watched as social media went berserk on November 24.
A quick search on Twitter will show that the failure to indict Darren Wilson for the death of Michael Brown is either proof that the system got it right or proof that the system is irreconcilably rigged.
The ongoing protests across the country are either the exasperated voices of a maligned and denigrated population or a Saul Alinsky-inspired chaos, triggered by race-baiters from the New Black Panthers. These aren’t simply competing perspectives; they’re manifestations of two entirely different realities.
Republicans reading this will immediately rebuke me: “But we won big in the midterms! We have a mandate!” Yes, you did win big. Some other things that won big a few weeks ago: expanded minimum wage and legalized marijuana. I doubt the new Congressional majorities will be quick to advance the “people’s will” on those issues.
As for Millennials, we accounted for 13 percent of those who voted. Thirteen. That’s unacceptable. But, then again, why should Millennials even bother voting? In three of the four races I voted, the incumbent ran unopposed.
Meanwhile, the Beltway is gearing up for another round of Bush vs. Clinton. Add to this that one party didn’t live up to its promises and the other doesn’t even live in the same reality and you’ve got the perfect storm for an entire generation struck with political apathy.
It is very relevant that some of the most popular Republicans among Millennials are libertarian, which is a great political euphemism for “a Republican who acknowledges social problems exist.”
Rand Paul probably won’t overturn generations of political demography overnight, but at least he recognizes that there are problems with drug legalization and mandatory minimums, and is working to address those issues.
Republicans should recognize that although this is not the 1860s, everything is not A-OK in American culture. It’s clearly, demonstrably not – just look at Ferguson.
Millennials aren’t blind. We see people – Americans – suffering and facing very real problems that the government can and should be working to address. Democrats and liberals don’t always have the correct answer. In fact, sometimes, they have terrible answers.
But, because Republicans won’t even acknowledge these issues, especially social issues, Democrats almost always win the conversation by default.
Maybe a Republican solution to global warming might actually coerce some Millennials to take them seriously and not simply dismiss. Maybe a Republican solution to police militarization might get a few more Millennials to vote.
When one of the two parties in a two-party system is too busy inventing conspiracy theories and spewing out fallacies instead of working toward a better future for all, it will automatically lose.
Actively disengaging from the conversation is nothing short of an abdication of responsibility by the GOP.
If conservatives don’t want to live in reality, so be it, but I wish they would stop dragging the country down with them.

‘Tis the season to be jolly – but play it wrong and it’s a stressful time, money and cheer-suck of a season. So sit back and let KRUSHKANDY show you how you can keep life sweet with these simple tricks.
These bags are a quick, easy and free way to wrap your gifts. Tell your mum you’re being eco-friendly and spend your savings in the Boxing Day sales.

More time for the Eastenders Christmas Eve special.
Sidestep those awkward ‘are we doing gifts’ convos by buying iTunes or High Street vouchers. If they’ve got you something – bingo! If they didn’t, keep it for yourself.
Be the best uncle/aunt ever by turning your wrapping into a main event. The brownie points you’ll earn from your older siblings will be worth it.
Smash up your Christmas stocking KrushKandy in a blender. Use the dust to sweeten up lattes, cupcakes or hot chocolate. Stick it in a clear food bag and tie with a ribbon for a quick-n-easy gift.
You won’t need a degree in Blue Peter to make these mugs – just grab yourself a ceramic pen and scribble away.
Because you KNOW you’re going to leave it until the last minute.
If you have to brave the cold wear mittens, not gloves. Gloves have a larger surface area, so your hands get colder, quicker.
Bring your own heavy duty bag or a couple of D rings, otherwise you’ll lose circulation from carrying back all your spoils.
Find a supermarket – they’ll be empty from about 3pm Christmas Eve, and make up a ‘gift hamper’. Popular themes: cheese, sweet treats, pamper pack.
Pick up a free cardboard box from the checkout and some discount wrapping paper and tissue paper for stuffing. BOOM! A thoughtful and creative gift that took you less time than a weekly shop.
Google your SS’s name + “Amazon wishlist”. Chances are, they’ll have one, so you can sleuth out their likes and dislikes.
No speakers? No problem!
If there are kids at your family party pick up a packet of googly eyes. Everything looks funnier with googly eyes. Fact. It’ll keep them entertained, and off your new computer games, for hours.
*KIDDING. Don’t try that one at home.
Happy Holidays – KRUSHKANDY

Mayor Bloomberg on soda ruling: we are going to appeal, we believe the judge’s decision was clearly an error and we will prevail on appeal
— Alex Moe (@AlexNBCNews) March 11, 2013
New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg held a press conference this afternoon to defend his soda ban after a New York State Supreme Court justice invalidated it as “arbitrary and capricious.” (The press conference begins around the 23-minute mark on the YouTube video.)
Lives are at stake, after all.
Bloomberg compared the soda ban to a previous ban on lead-containing paint.
Until the appeals process is complete, can restaurants and stores still sell 17 oz. drinks?
The brief press conference is over, but we have a follow-up question for the citizens of New York.
Introducing the biggest rims in the world. Previously, 40 inch was considered the “biggest rims in the world”. of Warren, OH has topped that number by ten inches with their Oldsmobile Cutlass on 50s. While most people don't consider the Oldsmobile Cutlass to be a sports car. Contrarily, it's rich history of Nascar affiliation and racing suggest the later. Placing this icon of classic racing on 50 inch rims is a very unique approach to modifying this vehicle. Not exactly the most performance based modification, adding custom build 50 inch rims to the Oldsmobile Cutlass sure does draw attention but terribly reduces it's performance capabilities.</p>
<p style="text-align: center">
Based on the engineering aspect of building wheels that large and strong, is quite impressive and thus I find it news worthy and rare enough to be apart of this column. Why did they use wire wheels? The only solution to keep the weight of the rim low and strength high is to use a wire wheel setup. Even if the vehicle hasn’t been shown moving around, it’s still quite an engineering feat to build custom 50 inch rims strong enough to support an Oldsmobile Cutlass! The picture on the right gives us an idea of exactly how big these rims are, courtesy of Patrick Rall, Detroit Autos Examiner.
Discuss this article with CarDomain.com
Typically, 100 spoke or 50 spoke is used for average size rims from 13″ up to 24″. For 50 inch rims, either the wire spoke must be stronger or there must be more spokes because the arch is expanded and will not be as strong. Either way, you need to accommodate for the larger radius of the wheel or it will simply be crushed by the weight of the vehicle. It looks like Meases in Warren, Ohio has figured out the formula. According to their latest video, there must be some naysayers of the fifty inch rim that do not appreciate the engineering involved to build custom rims to support this massive vehicle. According to Meases, the vehicle does not move due to theft purposes and has the motor removed. Also, the rims are not DOT approved and therefore not for sale. Enjoy the following brief footage of Meases Cutlass riding on 50 inch rims!
