Broad apologises for minimum wage tweet
England fast bowler Stuart Broad insisted Tuesday he had not meant to insult low-paid workers following an angry response to a tweet about Britain's minimum wage. "I've heard if you earn minimum wage in England you're in the top 10 percent earners in the world.

"Clarifying my earlier tweet, I merely wanted to emphasise my amazement at just how big the world is," he said.
Taylor Swift shakes off hacking on social media
Taylor Swift on Tuesday scoffed at a hacker who took over her social media accounts and threatened to release nude pictures, with the pop star saying none existed. The singer's Twitter and Instagram accounts were briefly seized by at least one hacker who vowed to release naked pictures of Swift if supporters paid enough in the form of the virtual currency bitcoin.

Twitter woos users with group chat and video features

The Twitter application for smartphones has also been modified to allow people to easily capture, edit and share videos. "In just a few taps you can add a video to unfolding conversations, share your perspective of a live event, and show your everyday moments instantly, without ever having to leave the app," Kamdar said.

Pop star Taylor Swift said her Twitter and Instagram accounts were hacked on Tuesday, but the rogue posts were quickly removed from the social media services. The 25-year-old "Shake It Off" singer, whose album "1989" has been atop the charts for the past three months, has built a following of young fans through social media and has the fourth-most popular Twitter account with 51.4 million followers. "My Twitter got hacked but don't worry, Twitter is deleting the hacker tweets and locking my account until they can figure out how this happened and get me new passwords," said a statement posted on Swift's personal Tumblr page. Twitter Inc and Facebook Inc-owned Instagram did not immediately respond to requests for comment on whether Swift's accounts had been hacked.
Social media flurry around blizzard: gripes, jokes and romance
By Laila Kearney and Barbara Goldberg NEW YORK (Reuters) - Fear, disappointment and even romantic thoughts about the Northeast's blizzard of 2015 powered a social media storm that raged on the Internet on Tuesday. The avalanche picking up speed on Twitter, YouTube and Facebook included mashup photos that replaced the Statue of Liberty's torch with a snow shovel and outfitted New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio in a king's fur cape and sword with the motto "Winter is Coming" from the "Game of Thrones" television show. Two of the most popular Twitter hashtags were #Snowmageddon2015 and #Snowpocalypse, although some felt #Blizzfizz was more appropriate. "A whole lotta 'nope,'" @kelso2utd wrote on Twitter, referring to the storm's underwhelming showing in most of New York City and New Jersey.

Twitter: now with video uploads and group direct messaging
In a bid to make its service more sticky with existing users and to attract new tweeters into the fold, the social network and micoblogging site is adding a new video feature it says will complement, rather than replace, Vine. Vine was a little app that let people create tiny, looping six-second videos and it proved so popular that Twitter acquired it and Instagram subsequently went out and essentially copied it. The new video feature will let users upload clips of up to 30 seconds in length that will play automatically in their timelines. Alongside the longer videos, Twitter is also adding group direct messaging so that Twitter effectively becomes a social messaging platform.

Facebook takes blame for service outages, which hit wider Web
By Eric Auchard FRANKFURT (Reuters) - Access to Facebook , the world's largest social network, and its Instagram photo-sharing site, were blocked around the world for up to an hour on Tuesday, which the company said later was due to an internal fault and not an outside attack. The outage at Facebook, which started around 0600 GMT, appeared to spill over and temporarily slow or block traffic to other major Internet sites, according to web and mobile user reports from around the globe. A hacker group associated with other recent high-profile attacks on other online services sought to claim responsibility for the outages, but Facebook said the fault was its own. “This was not the result of a third-party attack but instead occurred after we introduced a change that affected our configuration systems," Facebook said.

Turkish court orders Facebook to block pages 'insulting' prophet
A Turkish court has ordered Facebook to block pages deemed insulting to the Prophet Mohammed, threatening to shut down the social media network indefinitely if it ignores the directive, state media said Monday.

The court ruled on Sunday that Facebook would be shut down altogether in Turkey if it fails to implement the order, state-run Anatolia news agency reported. In its first issue after the attack by two Islamist gunmen that killed 12 people, Charlie Hebdo featured an image of the prophet weeping on its front cover holding a "Je suis Charlie" sign under the heading "All is forgiven".

Facebook launches Facebook 'Lite'
The world's most popular social network has put its main app on a crash diet so that it's lighter and nimbler and has a much smaller appetite for mobile internet data. Called Facebook Lite, it's the social network's way of ensuring its site is genuinely accessible to consumers in emerging markets that are just getting their first entry-level smartphones.

California teacher suspended over social media rant about sex case
By Alex Dobuzinskis LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - A Los Angeles area high school teacher has been suspended over a social media rant in which he said male students who reportedly had sex with two of his female colleagues should have kept their "stupid mouths shut" about the experience, a school official said on Friday. Sean Patrick Kane, an art teacher at South Hills High School in suburban West Covina, asked in a flippant post on Facebook on Sunday what had been "in the heads of the dudes who banged these ladies and then squealed?" "You should have just kept your stupid mouths shut and enjoyed it," Kane said in the same post, referring to the teenage students at the center of the sex case. The rant got the attention of officials at the West Covina Unified School District, who placed Kane on paid leave on Wednesday as they investigate his actions, district spokeswoman Michelle Van Der Linden said. "We expect teachers to maintain a level of professionalism in their classroom and in their social media presence as well," Van Der Linden said.
Soccer-County block Hungary on Facebook after flood of posts

County's page received more than 1,700 new likes in two days after the under-19 international joined the world's oldest professional football club on a free transfer.
