Actor Kangana Ranaut appeared on The Kapil Sharma Show‘s Saturday episode to promote her latest movie, Thalaivii. There, host Kapil Sharma reminded Kangana of one of her previous appearances on the show, when she did not speak highly of those who ‘waste time’ on social media.
In 2017, when Kangana arrived on the show with actor Shahid Kapoor to promote their movie Rangoon, she had said that only ‘velle (idle)’ people use social media. “Mujhe aisa lagta hai jaise social media pe saare velle log hote hain jinko kuch kaam nahi hota karne ko,” she had said. “You don’t get time to speak with the people you know. What will you say to those you don’t even know. Busy people go to work, are caught up in the difficulties that their lives throw at them,” she added. “Ye saare velle log Twitter, Facebook, Instagram pe rehte hai aur khud pe inhone kitne case bhi karwa liye hain (All these jobless people stay on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram and even got themselves caught up in legal cases),” she had said, pointing towards Kapil.
Kangana could not help but laugh at her words and the irony of it all. She joined Twitter last year and was permanently banned from the site for her controversial tweets. Speaking about it, she said that her opinion about Twitter was right in 2017. She said that it was because of coronavirus lockdown that she joined Twitter and was thrown out as soon as the lockdown lifted.
“Yeh baat hai toh sach hi. Jab corona nahi tha, acchi khaasi busy thi main. Jab corona hua, aisi velli hui main (This is true though. When there was no corona, I was quite busy. When corona arrived, I became so idle),” she said. Kangana added she couldn’t survive even six months on the app and was banned and in that time, almost 200 cases were filed against her daily.
After getting banned from Twitter, Kangana joined the Koo app and is now active on Instagram too.
Twitter likely to roll out ‘Reactions’ feature soon
After unveiling several features this year, micro-blogging site Twitter is reportedly readying new features, including Reactions, Downvotes and Sorted Replies for iOS users.
According to reverse engineer Nima Owji, the Reactions feature, which started being tested a couple of months ago, is set to launch soon, reports 9To5Mac.
With four new reactions, “tears of joy,” “thinking face,” “clapping hands” and “crying face,” this feature is designed to give users the ability to better show how conversations make them feel and to give users “a better understanding of how their Tweets are received”.
Citing the reverse engineer, the report also mentioned that the micro-blogging site is now able to store data about the downvotes feature, which is another indicator that this function will be released sooner rather than later.
The report also notes that the company changed the downvote position as well. It has even added a new tab explaining how downvotes work.
This month, the company has rolled out its in-app tipping feature to all Android users above the age of 18, following the iOS launch in September.
Twitter said the “Tips” feature is geared toward users looking to get a little financial support from their followers through Cash App, PayPal, Venmo and Patreon directly through the app.
Elon Musk has sold more than half of the Tesla stock that Twitter informed him.
Tesla shares have fallen 10% since Musk conducted a Tweet poll about the sale. They dropped more than 17% within the first few days following the Nov.
Twitter Investigating Bug Causing Unexpected Logouts on iOS 15
Posts on Twitter over the last several hours have shown users experiencing the bug, with some sharing frustrations that the app is requiring them to log back into Twitter upon every app launch. While some of the reports lack the specificity that the bug is happening on iOS devices, it seems likely to be the case following the acknowledgment from Twitter itself.
