Instagram has quietly added a secret emoji game that you can access in your DMs. To access the hidden game, all you have to do is open up a DM chat, send an emoji, and then click on it. The game saves your high score, so you can come back to it at any time to try to beat your previous high score. Your high score is saved across your DMs, so you don’t have to go back to the first emoji that you sent when activating the game. An Instagram spokesperson told TechCrunch in an email that the company is always working on new ways to make “Instagram feel more fun,” which is why it rolled out the game.

“Enhance Your Insta-DM Game: Edit Sent Messages Up to 15 Minutes Later!”

Instagram Edit Dms
Instagram announced today that it’s rolling out the ability for users to edit their direct messages for up to 15 minutes after sending them. The ability to edit your DMs lets you fix a typo or change things around if your message doesn’t quite sound right. To edit a message, you need to press and hold it, and then then choose “edit” from the dropdown menu. The feature works similar to Apple’s edit feature for iMessage, which launched nearly two years ago. Instagram also recently started allowing all users to turn read receipts off, for all of their chats or specific ones.

eBay ordered to fork out $3M after orchestrating cyberbullying scheme of sending fetal pig and live insects to targeted duo

The Ebay Inc. Campus Ahead Of Earnings Figures
eBay has agreed to pay a $3 million fine in connection with a corporate cyberstalking campaign targeting a Massachusetts couple in 2019. The cyberstalking campaign was conducted by several eBay employees, some of whom were executives, who targeted the couple after they posted a newsletter that was critical of the e-commerce giant. The cyberstalking campaign involved the employees sending the couple a bloody pig mask, a fetal pig, a funeral wreath, live insects and a book on surviving the death of a spouse. “eBay engaged in absolutely horrific, criminal conduct,” said Acting United States Attorney Joshua S. Levy in a press release. “The company’s conduct in 2019 was wrong and reprehensible,” said eBay CEO Jamie Iannone in the press release.
