Twitter is testing a new reply system that lets users choose who can and can’t reply to them, students are failing AP tests due to a new, allegedly better image format, and a brief look at the potential future of the theater.
• First, Jason strikes up a conversation about Twitter’s new reply system — some users are now able to limit who can reply to a given tweet.
• Then, Mikah applauds Netflix’s latest announcement wherein the company says it will remove unused Netflix accounts — no need to pay for a subscription you aren’t using.
• Then, The Verge’s Monica Chin joins the pair to reveal a new and troubling situation for students taking AP tests remotely: the iPhone’s default HEIC image format is causing those students to fail their tests.
• Finally, freelance writer Eric Ravenscraft pops in to talk about his article in OneZero regarding the future of movie theaters and our movie-watching experiences.
Hosts: Jason Howell, Mikah Sargent
Guests: Monica Chin, Eric Ravenscraft
