Elon Musk's big plans for Twitter: What we know so far
PROVIDENCE, R.I. - Tesla CEO Elon Musk has laid out some bold, if still vague, plans for transforming Twitter into a place of "maximum fun" once he buys the social media platform for $44 billion and takes it private.But enacting what at the moment are little more than a mix of vague principles and technical details could be considerably more complicated than he suggests.Here's what might happen if Musk follows through on his ideas about free speech, fighting spam and opening up the "black box" of artificial intelligence tools that amplify social media trends.Musk's feistiest priority -- but also the one with the vaguest roadmap -- is to make Twitter a "politically neutral" digital town square for the world's discourse that allows as much free speech as each country's laws allow. He's acknowledged that his plans to reshape Twitter could anger the political left and mostly please the right. He hasn't specified exactly what he'll do about former President Donald Trump's permanently banned account or other right-wing leaders whose tweets have run afoul of the company's restrictions against hate speech, violent threats or harmful misinformation. A rancher is offering 100 acres of free land to Elon Musk if he moves the Twitter headquarters from California to Schwertner, Texas.DOWNLOAD: FOX 7 AUSTIN NEWS APPShould Musk go this direction, it could mean bringing back not only Trump, but "many, many others that were removed as a result of QAnon conspiracies, targeted harassment of journalists and activists, and of course all of the accounts that were removed after Jan.

Five’s Ritchie Neville reveals tragic mental health battle after ‘nights on the vodka’
exclusively to the Daily Star about some of their defining moments.These days, the iconic British boyband comprises Ritchie Neville, Scott Robinson and Sean Conlon, without the other two original members Abz Love and Jason Brown.The group first parted ways in 2001 and had a very turbulent ending with bandmates clashing and multiple members struggling with their mental health.Talking about some of his lowest moments, Ritchie explained: "I remember there were times on stage back in the day where there was so much going on in your head but you could physically do the performance because the moves were that integrated into your body."But I remember having such insecurity one night that I felt like the most worthless member of the band and all these 15,000 people had only come to see the other four."I was having its proper mental battle and I did have a 'couple of nights on the vodka' and it was the third night I was at it but I remember you could be doing it all and all the movies but you just wouldn't be feeling it."The 2022 trio all agreed that things are definitely different this time around and actively communicate with one another when things may get a little rocky.Scott also said: "Now, if I'm struggling on a night, I would phone them or knock on their hotel room door and say 'I'm having a moment'."Then we would talk about it through the night but you wouldn't have done that back in the day because it wasn't spoken about."The group performed to an intimate crowd at the Snug Presents event and played some of their biggest bops.Also, be sure to check out Five's new album Time which is available on all music platforms to support the stars and listen to some of their new tunes.

How you watch Netflix might change as the company tries to recoup losses
Netflix’s share value plummeted this week on the news that the streaming platform lost roughly 200,000 subscribers in the last quarter.The Los Gatos, Calif., company also told investors to expect deeper losses in the months ahead, signalling that the days of unlimited growth for the streaming pioneer might be over.It’s a far cry from two years ago, when lockdowns tied to the COVID-19 pandemic were forcing consumers indoors with little else to do than watch Netflix.Now, not only is the global economy reopening to consumers eager to take in concerts and activities outside the home, but the streaming landscape has filled up with competitors launching or expanding their offerings to take more of the pie from Netflix. Netflix Canada raises prices to start 2022 The company showed in a letter to shareholders this week that while its share of the overall streaming market grew over the past year, so too has the amount taken up by Disney+, Amazon Prime, and assorted other on-demand platforms, including traditional cable giants launching their own collections.“Two years into the pandemic, the streaming market is a very different place,” says Carmi Levy, a Canadian tech analyst who’s been following Netflix’s struggles.As Netflix sees its subscriber growth dwindle and even start to reverse, Levy says the company has less free rein to jack up its subscription prices to offset revenue losses, lest it risk pushing consumers into the hands of an increasingly tight market.“It takes a lot less for consumers to drop one service and move to another,” he says.
