Twitter Election Trolling
We all know this election is lasting forever. (Less than a week to go!) The latest trolling is on Twitter; telling people to text to vote. Maybe you’re thinking, “everyone knows you can’t vote via text message”. Unfortunately not. Often people believe everything they see online. The tweets telling people to text to vote look real since the fake ads go along with Hillary For America and look legit.
One Twitter user wasn’t amused by the trolling but reported that once he reported it, Twitter said it didn’t violate the terms of service. Since then, Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey has stepped in to say it has been fixed.
But what happens if you do follow the text to vote that is being spread? Mashable writers tested it out and found that a reply says that the ad is not approved by Hillary for America. So the false ads weren’t too effective. Don’t fall for these text to vote or vote online scams, go vote on November 8th! (Source: Vox)

Starbucks Cups Cause Problems
If you went to a Starbucks on Tuesday morning, you may have noticed your cup o’ joe was served in a bright green cup with a drawing on it. Using the hashtag #TeamRedCup, Starbucks lovers fled to Twitter asking for answers, , and expressing their disappointment with the cup. On the other hand you had people saying the cups were cute and the message was great. What’s the message of the cups? According to a Starbucks spokesman, “it’s meant to symbolize bringing people together”. While the cups are supposed to bring people together, customers are taking sides. (Source: CBS News)
