Criticising Trevor Noah and James Gunn for comments that were made years ago presents a problem. We need to focus on who they are now.
After Roseanne Barr made a racist ‘joke’ on Twitter, Twitter mobilised against her. With her show now taken off the air, justice seems to be served. That poses a bit of a problem.
A short-priced favourite, downstairs loving and sprinkle of Christmas magic decorated the tree of #AusPol this week. So, who won?
Despite the fact that marriage equality is now legal, one leftie faced social backlash after he removed the rainbow emoji from his social media usernames.

A family in Aleppo is trying to survive the bombing, and thanks to Twitter we’re getting a visceral account of the brutality. But the Internet is not convinced.
The attack in New York was deliberate, but it wasn’t Terrorism. We knew little else, so the Twittersphere just filled in the gaps.
