SUNRISE — Sunday’s Game 1 battle left many hockey fans excited for the matchups to come after the Lightning won 5-4 over the Panthers.
“I just had the best seat in the house for (the game),” coach Jon Cooper said. “And it was quite a hockey game. Two exceptional teams going at it and that’s why it’s the greatest sport in the world. We just witnessed why with that display of those two teams.”
Game 2 is slated for 8 p.m. Tuesday, and until then, replays and highlights will have to suffice.
Here’s how Twitter reacted to the game:
This is one of those games that makes new hockey fans.
Luka Doncic and the Dallas Mavericks wasted no time in Game 3 of their first-round matchup with the LA Clippers, and NBA Twitter erupted over their hot start.
Game 3 Friday night was arguably the biggest game in LA Clippers franchise history. After falling down 0-2 at home to the Dallas Mavericks, winning this road game was critical for a team that entered the 2021 NBA Playoffs with legitimate title aspirations.
Unfortunately for the Clippers, Luka Doncic and the Mavs came out laser-focused to put their opponent in another early hole.
Just over two minutes into Game 3, Dallas already had an 8-0 lead in its first playoff game at home since 2016 … and all eight points belonged to Doncic, who’s rapidly become a Clippers killer. As such, NBA Twitter could immediately smell the blood in the water, erupting over the early deficit and how frazzled LA looked.
NBA Twitter was eating it up as Luka Doncic went off on the Clippers yet again
For starters, we can’t go any further without acknowledging how much Doncic personally torments this LA team. The disrespect on these step-backs!
It was awesome seeing Doncic so fired up in front of a massive Mavs crowd at the American Airlines Center, and the home team quickly built up a 28-11 lead.
People quickly noticed how ruthless Doncic was as he repeatedly targeted poor Ivica Zubac on his step-backs.
Three Ivica Zubac switches, three Luka Doncic buckets. Mavs 8, Clippers 0 and a perhaps concerned Ty Lue calls timeout.
It’s still early, and the Clippers went on a late first-quarter run to cut Dallas’ lead back down to single digits (with Doncic sidelined, of course), but there’s no question Luka’s early run was a memorable moment with LA on the ropes.
Kylie Jenner shared a pics of shoes that instantly created a buzz on desi Twitter.
At 23, Kylie Jenner is one of the most popular entrepreneurs of our times. The fashionista — born to Caitlyn and Kris Jenner and sister to the famous Kardashian siblings — has an enviable career. Fans have been hooked to the minutest of details of the star’s life, thanks to the reality series Keeping Up With The Kardashians (and its several spin-offs) as well as her gigantic social media presence. Given this, Kylie Jenner may not have thought twice before sharing a photo of her collection of high-end footwear in just about every colour of the rainbow. The post, as is the norm with her, went viral.
While Kylie Jenner surely caught the Internet’s attention with the jaw-dropping collection, what she didn’t take into account was desi Twitter users. Her desi followers had a very unique take on the image. In short, the first thought that popped into many minds on seeing the photo was that they resembled the slippers that line up outside our homes when we host a prayer meeting or a satsang.
Losing no time, one user said that this looked like “every Indian house during satyanarayan pooja.”
The social media giant told the BBC that increasing “revenue durability” is the company’s top objective.
The firm also plans to continue developing and experimenting with other ways to diversify its revenues beyond advertising this year and further ahead.
These plans could also include subscription services and other ways to offer individuals and businesses access to special features on the platform.
Twitter has also made clear that it will continue to focus on growing its advertising business.
Last month, the company launched a new “tip jar” feature that allowed people to send money to others on the social network.
Twitter said the feature was “an easy way to support the incredible voices that make up the conversation”.
To begin with, only a select group of people can receive tips – a group Twitter said was made up of “creators”, journalists, experts, and non-profits.
The function adds a small icon to a user’s profile – on mobile devices only for now – with a drop-down menu for other payment providers such as PayPal, Venmo, or the Cash App, the latter two of which are popular in the United States.
But the announcement was not without controversy. Because the payment is made through those external systems, some Twitter users noticed that tipping a PayPal account lets the recipient know the postal address of the tip sender.
In other cases, the recipient’s email address could be seen, whether or not any money was sent.
