Hold On To Your Butts – Episode 9 – Peak Bullshit: Upworthy/Livetweeting

butts

It’s Episode 9! The internet is swimming in bullshit and feel-goodery, and we’re here to talk about that. First, Upworthy’s clickbait headlines have saturated Facebook, whether the underlying stories are true or not. Then, there are a bunch of people creating their own mini reality shows using Twitter, also becoming popular whether they’re true or not. Finally, an update on Wikipedia vandalism, a ridiculous (local!) car chase, and the first ever selfie. Join us, won’t you?
