Get Ready To Buy Google, Apple, Facebook And Amazon

France just imposed a 3% tax on the French revenues of Google, Apple, Facebook and Amazon. But these companies are not going to be any less profitable because of the tax. If Google, Apple, Facebook or Amazon sells-off because of the new French digital tax, get ready to buy.

As with all corporate taxes, there is a widespread misunderstanding as to who actually pays the tax. Since in order to stay in business, customers have to cover all of a company’s costs — including taxes — it is customers who ultimately pay the taxes.

Twitter down: Social media platform goes offline for an hour – CNN

The tweets went silent for a time on Thursday.

San Francisco (CNN Business)The tweets went silent for a time on Thursday.

Social media service Twitter (TWTR) was not working for about an hour on Thursday afternoon. The company says some people may now be able to access the site again.
Twitter said in a statement Thursday afternoon that it was “currently investigating issues people are having accessing Twitter.”
Users can continue to monitor the site’s status at status.twitterstat.us. It’s unclear at this time how extensive the outage was or its exact length.
“The outage was due to an internal configuration change, which we’re now fixing,” Twitter said in an update it posted to the status monitoring site.
The site’s outage coincided with the start of the White House’s Presidential Social Media Summit. Twitter, along with Facebook (FB), wasn’t invited to the summit, while a number of right-wing extremists were.

Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez sued over blocking people on Twitter – BBC News

Former New York state assemblyman Dov Hikind and Joseph Saladino, a YouTube personality running for Congress, have filed the claims.

Both cite a recent ruling against President Donald Trump, which said he was breaking the law by blocking critics on the social media platform.

The men say the law should apply to all politicians.

“Trump is not allowed to block people, will the standards apply equally?” Mr Saladino tweeted.

And a feud with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi escalated after Congress passed a border funding bill that four young Democrats opposed. Pelosi discussed the bill, and those in her party who oppose it, in an interview last weekend. She told the New York Times: “All these people have their public whatever and their Twitter world, but they didn’t have any following. They’re four people, and that’s how many votes they got.”

Ocasio-Cortez said to The Washington Post on Wednesday that the “persistent singling out” by the Speaker may be more than “outright disrespectful.”

In an earlier interview with The New Yorker Radio Hour, Ocasio-Cortez accused Congress of using  women and minorities as “bargaining chips.”

After Putin falls during exhibition hockey game, a social media frenzy | Fox News

Russian President Vladimir Putin took a spill on Friday as he waved to fans at an exhibition hockey game in Sochi which featured several former NHL players.

The 66-year-old was waving to fans as he circled the rink at the Bolshoi Arena in the Black Sea resort of Sochi when he inadvertently raced toward the edge of a red carpet that had been placed on the ice.

Two of Putin’s teammates on the “Legends” tried to catch him but the Russian leader fell before they could reach him.

The fall inspired a frenzy of posts on social media mocking Putin and his authoritarian rule, and jokingly suggesting that someone would pay dearly for his or her role in the mishap.

BlackBerry Messenger is shutting down for consumers on May 31st | PhoneDog

It’s time to pour one out, because BlackBerry Messenger is shutting down.

It was announced today that the consumer version of BBM is closing on May 31st, 2019. After that date, the BBM app will stop working. Emtek, who licensed the BBM consumer business from BlackBerry in 2016, says that BBM stickers and BBMoji can’t be exported out of the app, so you won’t be able to use them after the shutdown. You can issue refunds of your in-app purchases for stickers that you’ve bought, though.
