This is a pretty big week for business acquisitions. First, it was all about YouTube’s reported purchase of Twitch. Then, there was the story about AT&T buying DirecTV for billions of dollars but only if the NFL renewed its Sunday Ticket deal. Now, Twitter decieded to get in on the action. A new report suggests that the social media / microblogging website is in talks to buy online audio-sharing website SoundCloud.
In response to an ongoing controversy in Britain involving the targeted abuse of freelance journalist and activist Caroline Criado-Perez on Twitter, the social media website announced an update in their abuse reporting setup.
Twitter is going to remove the current abuse reporting form and replace it with a one-click “report abuse” button and will increase the number of staffers dedicated to investigated abuse reports on the website.
