    There's been a surge in bot activity in the past month in online discussions about reopening America from COVID-19 shutdowns, researchers at Carnegie Mellon University said this week. The researchers analyzed over 200 million tweets discussing COVID-19 and found that roughly half the accounts were likely bots. They identified the bots by looking for accounts that tweeted more frequently than humanly possible or whose location appeared to rapidly switch among different countries. It's unclear who's behind the surge in bot activity or whether they're originating from the US or abroad.

    Germany’s Volkswagen (VW) has pulled an Instagram ad that showed a giant white hand pushing around a black person, saying it was “surprised and shocked” that viewers decried it as racist. The 10-second clip appeared on the firm’s Instagram story on Tuesday to advertise the new Golf car. It has since been removed, but was still circulating on Twitter on Wednesday. The ad shows an oversized white woman’s hand picking up a black man in a suit and moving him around before flicking him into a building and away from the yellow Golf car parked nearby. Viewers were quick to...

    James Woods took a jab at House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif. on Twitter Tuesday following negative comments she made about President Donald Trump . The politically outspoken actor took to Twitter to share an image of the House Speaker and to lambaste her in the photo's caption. “Morbidly corrupt…” Woods wrote . The line is seemingly a direct response to a comment she made about Trump during an appearance on CNN to discuss the president’s use of the anti-malaria drug hydroxychloroquine. Trump shocked reporters on Monday when he revealed that he has been taking the drug in an effort...

Governor Tom Wolf doesn’t want Roethlisberger, or anyone to break coronavirus restrictions in that way. “My concern is just a general concern and anybody who puts himself or herself into harm’s way is something i think we ought to try to avoid,” Wolf said in response to a question about Roethlisberger specifically. "And when you go to something like a barbershop and you’re not protected, I don’t care...
