Labour dominating Twitter discussions, researchers say | Technology | The Guardian

Content about Labour is dominating Twitter in the run-up to the general election, according to a new study from the University of Oxford’s Internet Institute.The researchers, who have been tracking the changes in activity over time, looked at traffic on Twitter over the final week of May to identify trends around political engagement, ultimately cataloguing almost 2.5m tweets spread over a number of election-related hashtags.They found that the number of posts using Labour-related hashtags dwarfed those featuring content about other parties, ultimately making up 62% of all tweets mentioning a specific party. This was up from 40% at the start of the month. Labour support spiked highest during the debate programmes that occurred during that week: the back-to-back Q&A with May and Corbyn on 28 May, the general election debate on 31 May that the Prime Minister declined to attend, and Question Time on 2 June featuring the two leaders.

Could Apple’s Next Move Finally Kill the Need to Carry Cash? – NBC News

The new HomePod speaker may have stolen the show at Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference, but there was one announcement that could help ring the death knell for something many of us use every day: cash.When the iOS 11 update is rolled out to iPhones and iPads this fall, it will come equipped with a new Apple Pay feature that will support peer-to-peer payments in iMessage, further bolstering the functionality of the mobile payments solution Apple introduced in October 2014.Apple’s Senior Vice President of Software Engineering Craig Federighi speaks about Apple Pay on stage during Apple’s World Wide Developers Conference in San Jose, California on June 5, 2017. Josh Edelson / AFP – Getty Images”What this does is it makes you think about Apple Pay a lot more than you did before, particularly if you are in a demographic of people who already use Venmo,” Patrick Moorhead, principal analyst at Moor Insights & Strategy, told NBC News. “Based on how easy it is to do this, people are going to start sending money all over the place.”

Facebook blocks Chechnya activist page in latest case of wrongful censorship | Technology | The Guardian

Facebook censored a group of supporters of Chechen independence for violating its community standards barring “organizations engaged in terrorist activity or organized criminal activity”, the latest example of the social network mistakenly censoring government dissidents.The Facebook group, Independence for Chechnya!, was “permanently deleted” by Facebook in late May, according to the group administrator, an Estonian human rights activist who asked to be identified by her initials, MP. She said she was “shocked” when she received a message from Facebook informing her of the deletion. “We do not support terror,” MP said. “We support [a] political[ly] legal way for returning Chechen independence.”After the Guardian contacted Facebook about the group, it was reinstated. A company spokesperson said that the deletion had been made “in error” and pointed out that with “millions of reports each week”, the company “sometimes gets things wrong”.
