‘This nonsense is annoying’ – Elon Musk criticizes Twitter’s attempts to enter the NFT market

Published

Twitter recently announced that it will be launching a program on its Twitter Blue subscription service to enable iOS users to use NFT for their avatars. Tesla CEO Elon Musk immediately expressed dissatisfaction, calling it “a waste of resources.”

Elon Musk tweeted “this is annoying” and also criticized the problem of spam related to cryptocurrency. He noted, “Twitter is wasting engineering resources on this nonsense while crypto scammers are having a spambot party in every thread!?”

Elon Musk has expressed support for cryptocurrencies many times. In March 2021, he announced that Tesla would accept payments in bitcoin, but reversed that decision in May, citing environmental concerns. Earlier this month, Tesla began accepting Dogecoin as payment for certain items.

Like other tech companies, Twitter is looking to capitalize on tech trends like NFTs. Last year, Twitter added the ability for users to send and receive bitcoins, even announcing a new division that would be fully focused on cryptocurrencies, blockchain technology, decentralized applications and NFTs.

Twitter’s main competitor, Meta (Facebook’s parent company), is also planning to launch a cryptocurrency and support for NFT technology. The company is reportedly working to allow users to sell NFTs on the Facebook and Instagram marketplaces. This will play an important role in bringing NFTs to the mainstream market.

According to DappRadar, NFT sales reached about $25 billion in 2021.

Whatsapp allows you to quietly leave a group

The WhatsApp team is working on a new feature that will allow users to “silently” leave group chats.

Whatsapp allows you to

Currently, when someone leaves a group chat, WhatsApp announces it to all members of the group. Now it is impossible to quietly leave the group so that all members do not know about it. But soon this may change.

The thematic resource WABetainfo drew attention to the innovation in the beta version – when a user leaves a group, only group administrators receive a notification. When a group member opts out, a dialog box appears that says “Only you and the group admins will be notified that you have left the group.”

Apple Allows Apps to Raise Subscription Prices Without Users’ Permission

Apple Allows Apps to Raise Subscription Prices Without Users Permission

Apple has changed its policy for apps and services in the App Store that offer a paid subscription with auto-renewal.

Apple Allows Apps to Raise Subscription Prices Without Users' Permission

Until now, when a developer increased the price of an auto-renewing subscription, users had to confirm that they agreed to continue paying for the subscription at the new price. Otherwise, the subscription was automatically cancelled. Now, with the update, the increased cost of the subscription will be charged even without the consent of the user.

Of course, Apple has provided some restrictions to avoid abuse. For example, developers are still required to notify users of a change in the cost of a subscription, and re-charging the new cost is not possible without the consent expressed by the user.

In addition, price increases cannot occur more than once a year, and the maximum price increase is $5 for regular subscriptions or $50 for annual subscriptions. Users will also be able to easily cancel their subscription if they wish.

Recently, Google updated the note for the May update of Google Play, adding to it some additional innovations that were not previously mentioned.

Most notable among these declassified innovations was the Photo Picker feature. This feature, first introduced in Android 13, aims to restrict apps from accessing media files on the device. Instead of giving access to all the media on the device at once, Photo Picker gives apps access to only selected media.

Google’s official documentation for Photo Picker mentions that the feature will arrive on devices running Android 12 and Android 11 via a Google Play system update.

Another new feature coming with the Google Play May update is support for installing and using streaming apps on devices running Android Automative. In addition, the update also adds the ability for parents to install the launcher on devices registered with Family Link.
