Twitter is removing the blue checkmarks from legacy verified accounts. They were used to make sure accounts of notable people or organizations, were actually run by those people or groups. Now, a checkmark is going to cost subscribers $8/month.

Next, Atari just acquired the rights to more than 100 games that were launched in the 80’s and 90’s.
The CEO says many of them will be re-released in modern formats. Re-imagined versions of classic games like “Asteroids” and “Missile Command” are reportedly in the works.

The Grateful Dead has come back to life on TikTok. Exclusive content will be posted on the app under the band’s name, including old concert footage. The Grateful Dead officially ended after the death of co-founder Jerry Garcia in 1995.
