Verizon PR exec tweets insensitive post-hurricane message targeting T-Mobile, deletes it after outrage

When you think of cheeky executives in the mobile communication business, your mind probably goes to T-Mobile's John Legere. Whether you love Legere's antics or not, it's hard to deny that he's turned T-Mobile around and made it into a major player. A recent tweet from Verizon executive Jeffrey Nelson shows that he wants a piece of the action; unfortunately, he chose to be brash towards T-Mobile (and other carriers) in the worst possible way at the worst possible time.

[Update: Live] Twitter is readying a night mode for the desktop site

It's been roughly a year since Twitter made a ton of users very happy and fully introduced a night mode for its Android app. That was such a popular move with anyone who hadn't defected to a third party Twitter client that it seemed a dead cert it would eventually come to the desktop site. That time has now come.

Twitter beta redesigns the night mode toggle and QR barcode scanner

According to our frequent tipster Gurkanwal Singh, Twitter beta 7.12 has started showing a new night mode toggle and QR code icon. If you might remember, Twitter's night mode used to have a proper toggle in the side menu and the QR code display and scanner was hidden under the overflow menu when viewing your profile. The latter was really difficult to get to and nowhere regular users would guess.

Now, both have moved to the bottom of the side menu, under the Help center. They're simple icons with a crescent moon for night mode and a QR icon for the code scanner.

OnePlus support on Twitter is so bad they confuse compliments with complaints

OnePlus has come a long way since it thought selling the OnePlus 2 without NFC was a good idea—the OnePlus 5 is a good phone, despite the foibles. OnePlus' support, on the other hand, could use some work. After misleading customers about the jelly scrolling situation, OP is responding to praise with apologies.

Twitter rolls out advanced notification filters for muting new accounts and more

Twitter, like most social media services, is a double-edged sword. It's a great way to keep up with friends, celebrities, and companies in a very quick way. But you can also find trolls, abuse, and other issues that stem from immaturity. In its continuing, but slow-going, battle to combat all of that, Twitter has rolled out some new advanced filters for notifications on the platform.

Fail: Samsung dishonors Cookie Monster by using a cracker as the cookie emoji

If there's one thing that everyone knows about Sesame Street's Cookie Monster, it's that he loves cookies, namely those of the chocolate chip variety. In fact, it's more of an obsession than a love. You can imagine, then, how important the cookie emoji would be to Cookie Monster on World Chocolate Day. However, Samsung dishonored our furry blue friend by utilizing a cracker emoji instead.

Comparing the best Twitter clients for Android (2017 edition)

For the longest time, the Twitter Android app just wasn't very good. Sure it was functional, but it was clear that Twitter was focusing more on its iOS client. Third-party clients were, for that time period, the absolute best way to use Twitter on Android devices. Even though the official app has improved drastically over the past year or so, especially with the Material makeover, there are still plenty of excellent alternative clients.

Many Twitter clients have been abandoned after hitting the API token limit, and since it can be hard to keep track of which apps are still in active development, I figure a comparison might be a good idea.
