Twitter's Algorithmic Timeline Switch Is All Your Own Fault | Back Chat | Scoop.it

By liking and retweeting every pointless and inconsequential Tweet in the past we have given the Twitter algorithm an untrue insight into what we really want to see.

Meet TIME's Instagram Photographer of 2015 - Stacy Kranitz | Back Chat | Scoop.it

She was selected for her use of the app "as it was intended". Kranitz, a Kentucky native who now lives in California when she’s not traveling, uses Instagram to explore the Appalachian region with intensely personal photographs. In fact, she uses the platform to blur the boundaries of her personal life and professional life.
