Might as well have been This Week on Twitter

What’s going on everybody?!

I’m finally back to do these after a brief hiatus last week. Last week was Extra Life Game Day where we play games for 24 hours across the US and raise funds for our local CMN hospitals.

I had wrapped up my day at about 8:00am last Sunday, but I came home and slept most of the day.

You can still help me raise funds for Duke Children’s Hospital by going to my Extra Life page to donate today!

Now, on with the show!

Starting at #1, we finally get some concrete confirmation that a new Grand Theft Auto is upon us. Sam Houser confirmed a story from Jason Schreier that a new Grand Theft Auto trailer will be dropping next month to coincide with the anniversary of Grand Theft Auto.

At #2, the walking, talking contradiction better known as Elon Musk has unveiled a new AI chatbot called Grok. Coming from his AI company xAI (how original), the chatbot will be available to all Twitter Premium+ members when it exits beta.

In news that makes me want to get rid of Windows for good, #3 is a story about a OneDrive test update that absolutely NEEDS to know why you are closing it and won’t move on until you do. Why is it so needy? Hopefully, we’ll never find out.

At #4, Sony is set to remove Twitter support from the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 5. They never said why they are doing it, but come on, we know. It also probably doesn’t help that they’ve sold so many PlayStations that the API costs were going through the roof.

At #5, it is the sad tale of Tumblr. I was talking to my wife about it and surprisingly, she had never heard of the social network before which I guess is one of the issues plaguing the site. But given its turbulent journey to this point, I don’t blame her. At least the employees aren’t out of a job.

And finally, at #6, self proclaimed gamer Elon Musk has noticed that PlayStation is removing support for his social network and he wants to know why. I’m not really in support of people having all the money get more money, but I hope Sony gets a fat stack of cash from him just to keep support up. Then the whole API just breaks.

Well, that’s it for me this week!

Remember to please support the charity above if you’d like to help sick and injured kids!
