Twitter lets you choose who can reply to tweets already posted | Digital Trends Spanish

Twitter continues to give users tools with which to control and prevent harassment within the platform. The microblogging social network confirmed on July 13 which has added a new function with which we can decide who can reply to a specific tweet once it has already been published. Previously, the platform enabled the ability to choose who responds to a tweet before publishing it, but this new feature expands the options and allows us to have more control over our content. Twitter allows us to choose between three types of people who can respond to a post: any user of the platform, only those who follow us or the most restrictive of all, only the usernames that we have mentioned in the tweet. Regardless of the option chosen, the rest of the users will be able to continue interacting w...

The Internet now even knows what breed of dog you are | Digital Trends Spanish

It was another cyberspace. On the Internet, no one knows that you are a dog, the cartoon that Peter Steiner published on July 5, 1993 in the magazine The New Yorker, refers to a characteristic that has been eliminated by sophisticated tracking and identification techniques with which, even without knowing something basic like our name, they are capable of creating a sophisticated socioeconomic profile for marketing purposes. Online marketers sum it up in a simple and suggestive phrase: not even your mother knows as much about you as Google. The cartoon has been reproduced ad nausea, and in recent years, adapted to the cultural mass dissemination vehicle par excellence: the meme. Two dogs sitting in front of a computer, one of them with a paw on the keyboard as if he were about to ente...
