    Donald Trump's new social media platform Truth Social has seen a staggering 93 percent drop in downloads since being launched in late February, a new report showed on Wednesday. The app -- Trump's highest-profile new business venture since the end of his presidency -- was only installed about 60,000 times per week over the last month, according to TheWrap.  'This is down 93% from its launch week, when it saw 872,000 installs during the week of Feb. 21,' an expert at Sensor Tower told the outlet based on early data.  Its desktop site has also reportedly seen a steep drop-off in traffic, from 6 million visits in the first week it launched to roughly 1.9 million weekly visits now, according to Similarweb.  Users are apparently still having trouble accessing the site, which forces people who make an account onto a 'waitlist' that is hundreds of thousands of places long.  Perhaps in a sign of its waning popularity, Trump himself has mostly refrained from sounding off on the platform. 'Get Ready! Your favorite President will see you soon!' the ex-president wrote...
    It sounds like people should enjoy Charles Barkley on TV while it lasts because his time is nearing an end. Barkley is the face of the NBA on TNT, and he’s honestly become substantially more famous for his skills as a commentator than he was for playing basketball. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football) That’s saying something because he was a hell of an NBA star, but it sounds like Barkley is gearing up to call it quits on being a TV star. During a Thursday interview with Pat McAfee, the former Suns and 76ers star revealed he has two years left on his deal and when it’s done, he might call it a show. He also added that it’s not his goal to “drop dead on television.” You can watch him break it all down below. “I love my job but I don’t wanna drop dead on television.. people thinking I’m still gonna be on TV when I’m 70 years old.. that’s the STUPIDEST shit I’ve ever heard” ~Charles Barkley#PatMcAfeeShowLIVE pic.twitter.com/JFTJzBIu1u — Pat...
    The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee was hammered over a tweet containing a misleading graph thanking President Joe Biden for a drop of 2 cents in U.S. gas prices. A couple of hours after it was sent, the missive was mercilessly subjected to a "ratio," which Dictionary.com defines as "the proportion of replies to a tweet compared to the combined number of retweets and likes, where a high ratio usually indicates a barrage of negative replies." Thanks, @JoeBiden. pic.twitter.com/0iHwTLv7fB— DCCC (@dccc) December 2, 2021 At first glance, the chart shared by the DCCC on Thursday shows a promising decrease up until the end of November, citing economic data. But a closer look makes it clear the graph is misleading, as there is no data point to show when the x-axis begins. The only data points shown are Nov. 22 and Nov. 29. Beyond that, the noteworthiness of a 2-cent fall between $3.40 and $3.38 per gallon, as well as a y-axis scale that zooms in to between $3.375 and $3.415, was not lost on Twitter users roasting the group. Expanding the...
    The Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) tweeted a graph on Thursday meant to thank President Joe Biden for lowering gas prices, but the messaging quickly backfired as critics pounced on the fact the drop was only two cents. The Washington Post’s Philip Bump even published an article about the graph titled, “This might be the worst defense of the Biden administration yet.” The DCCC’s chart showed prices went down from 3.4 to 3.38 in the seven days between November 22nd and 29th. Author James Surowiecki jested “Greatest Y-axis ever” — referencing the chart’s deceptively dramatic drop. Greatest Y-axis ever. https://t.co/dQwbuF4UiX — James Surowiecki (@JamesSurowiecki) December 2, 2021 Other Twitter users, like pollster Frank Luntz, pointed out that the DCCC probably should not be pointing out a two-cent drop, when the national average price at the pump is up a dollar since Biden took office. “The @DCCC neglected to mention that gas prices are up $1 since @JoeBiden took office,” Luntz wrote sharing a graph showing the overall increase under Biden.

    MSNBC host and Howard University professor Joy Reid entered into a Twitter feud with political satirist Tim Young after the MSNBC host claimed she had "no idea" who actor Rob Schneider is. Young replied to the tweet writing "You know exactly who the f**k he is." Reid then wrote: "And sorry who are you? And what is your authority, exactly, on what and who I know?" "I'm Tim Young, but like most Americans with eyes, ears, and common sense, I know that you're a lying, race-baiting homophobe who should've been canceled from all your platforms a while ago," Young fired back.  SEN.

    NBA Twitter cannot believe Rick Carlisle stepped down as the Dallas Mavericks head coach. One day after long-time general manager Donnie Nelson left the organization, the Dallas Mavericks will have to look for a new head coach as well with Rick Carlisle abruptly resigning. Carlisle had been the Mavericks’ head coach since the 2008-09 NBA season. This was his third stint as an NBA head coach, and by far and away his most successful. Dallas made the Western Conference Playoffs in nine of his 13 seasons. The Mavericks won two Southwest Division titles under his watch, as well as the 2011 NBA Finals in his third season leading the basketball team. Dallas is in complete turmoil right now with seemingly only Mark Cuban and Luka Doncic left.Mavericks: NBA Twitter erupts in a fiery blaze after Rick Carlisle’s resignationAt 61-years-old, Carlisle would be a candidate for seemingly any other potential head-coaching vacancy. The one that easily makes the most sense for him would be one of the teams he played for in the Boston Celtics. “Rick Carlisle steps down as Mavs head coach”...
    Getty Kadarius Toney celebrates after a big play. The Philadelphia Eagles officially go on the clock in a matter of hours. All the mock drafts have been filled out. All the scouting reports have been turned in. And there are plenty of clues to decipher on whom the Eagles might select at pick No. 12. The most popular names in the first round include DeVonta Smith, Jaylen Waddle, Jaycee Horn, Patrick Surtain II. Of course, general manager Howie Roseman could decide to trade up and grab a shiny new quarterback. Or buck the trend of recent drafts and take a stud linebacker like Micah Parsons. Offensive tackle Christian Darrisaw wants to block for Jalen Hurts, too. The Eagles released an interesting hype video on Wednesday morning in an attempt to elicit excitement from the Philly fans. It worked. Big time. In it, two potential draft picks are featured prominently: Alabama quarterback Mac Jones and Florida receiver Kadarius Toney. Coincidence? Probably. But it’s worth noting that these are the only two college players in the video. Tonight, we write...
    MADRID (AP) — Alavés striker Joselu Mato scored to help beat Valladolid 1-0 and lift his team out of the Spanish league relegation zone on Friday. Mato redirected a low cross by Martín Aguirregabiria just inside the far post for the 66th-minute winner. Lucas Pérez started the move when he played Aguirregabiria clear down the flank with a well-placed pass between two defenders. Alavés jumped into 15th place, pushing Osasuna down into the bottom three relegation spots. Alavés celebrated its first win in seven rounds and the first under new coach Abelardo Fernández. Valladolid was left in 17th place after a fifth consecutive round without a victory. ___ More AP soccer: https://apnews.com/Soccer and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports ___ More AP soccer: https://apnews.com/Soccer and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports Copyright © 2021 The Associated Press.

    According to recently released data from a market research firm, Donald Trump’s permanent ban from Twitter resulted in a significant decrease in social media conversations alleging that Joe Biden won the 2020 presidential race through fraudulent means. On Saturday, The Washington Post covered the results of a study from Zignal Labs, which noted that “online misinformation about election fraud” had gone down by 73 percent in the days since Trump and some of his “key allies” were suspended or banned from Twitter and other similar platforms. The firm stressed that the findings were proof that tech companies have the power to “limit the falsehoods poisoning public debate” when certain political figures aggressively push their narratives. “Twitter’s ban of Trump on Jan. 8, after years in which @realDonaldTrump was a potent online megaphone, has been particularly significant in curbing his ability to push misleading claims about what state and federal officials have called a free and fair election on Nov. 3,” The Washington Post wrote. Specifically, Zignal Labs revealed that in the week since Trump got banned from the microblogging service,...
    U.S. President Donald Trump speaks in the East Room of the White House during an event with U.S. mayors on January 24, 2020 in Washington, DC.Drew Angerer | Getty Images Twitter shares dipped more than 8% in the premarket Monday, the first trading session since the social media company permanently suspended President Donald Trump's account. Twitter said late Friday it made the decision to remove the president "due to the risk of further incitement of violence," after a deadly riot took place at the U.S. Capitol. The move could likely reignite legislation around Section 230, the law that protects internet companies from liability for content users post, according to analyst notes. Trump has loudly voiced his disdain for the law, and politicians on both sides of the aisle have issued complaints about Section 230. "While a Democratic administration may be less focused on significant reform of Section 230, recent events may make content legislation more likely," BofA Securities analysts said in a note to clients. Still, the firm reiterated its Buy rating on the stock. "We would anticipate new proposed legislation in...

    The northern Colorado alt-rock band Holdfast hasn't let COVID-19 stop its creativity. With a new single coming out October 16 and a new album in January, the group has been keeping busy. The family trio comprises brothers Tommy Maddocks and Mikey Maddocks and their cousin Charlie Maddocks; the three have made a name for themselves over the years, and recently signed with a U.K. audio network called eOne. The partnership will allow their music to be picked up commercially, a huge step that inspired Tommy and Charlie to drop out of Colorado State University to devote themselves completely to the band. "Ever since we got the deal with the audio network, Charlie and I thought it would be best to focus," Tommy says.Related Stories Record Thieves Long for the Raw Energy of an Actual Punk Show Barbara Jo Kammer and the Hippie Buckaroos Bring Hope to Seniors Kendra & the Bunnies Hops Back to Colorado to Celebrate a New Album During time at home during the pandemic, they wrote nine songs, and they're releasing a new track, "The...
    Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban and Sen. Ted Cruz engaged in a heated debate over Twitter on Tuesday as the latest numbers showed another dip in ratings for Game 3 of the NBA Finals. Friday’s Game 2 of the series between the Los Angeles Lakers and Miami Heat was watched by 6.07 million viewers, a drop from last year’s Game 2 Finals and from this year’s Game 1 (7.41 million). Game 3 ratings fell again to 5.94 million viewers, marking the least watched NBA Finals game on record, according to Sports Media Watch. NBA FINALS GAME 2 RATINGS DIP While a number of reasons could have played into the dip, including the unusual timing of the season caused by the pandemic, Cruz took to social media to suggest that player protests were the cause. “Not surprising. Personally speaking, this is the first time in years that I haven’t watched a single game in the NBA Finals,” he said using the hashtag “#GoWokeGoBroke.” The tweet caught the attention of Cuban who took offense to the Senator’s stance. “A US Senator with...
    Jim Wilcox spent years drumming in the Mesa, Arizona-based punk band Authority Zero. After moving to Colorado a few years ago, he wanted to start playing again, so he posted a message on Facebook expressing this desire. That’s how he met Mike Waterhouse, singer from Denver punk outfit Boldtype, and the two met at a Denver bar to talk music. “Mike and I started writing songs, just the two of us, for a little bit,” Wilcox says. “When we got the initial band together, the whole sound kind of just took its own turn.” That’s how Record Thieves came about, and after a few lineup fluctuations, the five-piece band is just about to drop its debut, Wasting Time — eleven tracks of melodious punk rock that recalls Millencolin and, in particular, Face to Face.

    With the libraries shuttered, except for curbside pickup, Denver Public Library adult services librarian Heidi Young wanted to give people in the city a way to express their thoughts and emotions about COVID-19 and this brutal year. Inspired by Quaranzine, from the Arlington Public Library, Young decided to create a zine in which library staff and customers could reflect on these brutal times. "For myself as a teenager and a young person being involved in the underground music scene back in Seattle, zines were circulated a lot in that circle," Young says. "I would trade zines with my friends and drop them off at independent bookstores." Zines are DIY, homemade magazines often showcasing works by artists, writers, photographers, and other creatives. Young thought it would be the perfect way to give her coworkers an outlet.

    Gary Thompson was fifteen when he found the fossils near Cedaredge in Delta County. It was 1975, and he'd just gotten interested in paleontology after a school field trip to scenic Escalante Canyon, a red-rock canyon where he and his classmates learned about the dinosaur bones and petrified dung specimens regularly found in the area. "That really piqued my interest," Thompson recalls. "I became kind of a rock hound. I enjoyed going out and searching for fossils and such." But a move with his mother to New Mexico from western Colorado was about to take him from some of his favorite hunting grounds. "I wanted to fossil hunt one more time before we left," he says.

    Raverro Stinnett’s life changed drastically in the spring of 2018. The artist, who was waiting for a ride home on public transportation at Union Station after attending a gala at RedLine gallery, was profiled, beaten and left with permanent brain damage by security guards with Allied Universal Security Services, the firm that contracts with the Regional Transportation District to keep the peace at the station. Stinnett wasn't identified in early coverage of the incident, nor when the guards pleaded guilty in December 2018. But that changed earlier this year when he filed a lawsuit against Allied and RTD. Not long after that, George Floyd’s murder at the hands of a Minneapolis police officer blew the lid off the simmering Black Lives Matter movement. That’s all it took for Stinnett’s story to go nationwide. Yet with the exception of boardmember Shontel Lewis, the RTD board has voted to continue working with Allied.
