Trump's team released a video of him as Thanos, the villain who commits genocide in the 'Avengers' movies, and people are puzzled

  • On Tuesday, President Donald Trump's team released a video depicting the president as that bad guy: Thanos.
  • In the video, shared on the "Trump War Room" Twitter account (which is managed by the #TeamTrump 2020 campaign), Trump's face is superimposed onto Thanos' body.
  • The hybrid character snaps his fingers to make House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler, and Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff disappear from existence.
  • The video came after House Democrats unveiled two articles of impeachment against Trump, charging him with abuse of power and obstruction of Congress.
  • After that announcement, Trump took to his own Twitter account, accusing the Democrats of lying.
  • When Thanos snaps his gauntlet-clad fingers, half of everything in existence dies.
  • Many Twitter users quickly reminded Trump about Thanos' evil nature, questioning the president's choice to compare himself and his re-election campaign to the villain.

She worked as a debt collector, then faced medical bills after her daughter's hospitalization. Now, her 'debt pro tips' are going viral on TikTok.

  • Two weeks ago, Shaunna Burns got a phone call from a debt collector hounding her about bills from her daughter's emergency medical care.
  • The collector had engaged in some "rude" tactics, she said, but the North Carolina mom was able to rebuff them because she herself previously worked in debt collection.
  • Burns' expertise on medical debt dates back to her previous job at a collection agency in Florida, where she worked for four years.
  • Burns said she ultimately quit because she felt the agency was engaging in "shady" tactics and collecting on expired medical debt, a common practice in the industry.
  • Since then, Burns said her daughter has required multiple hospital visits related to psychological trauma from the incident.
  • Navigating the red tape of medical costs and subsequent calls from debt collectors has been an irritating side effect of that ordeal, Burns said.

YouTube star Lizzy Capri, who is nominated for a Streamy Award, tells her story of quitting her day job at LinkedIn to become a creator

  • The channel's growth began to accelerate in 2017, and Carter Sharer — who was also working on the channel along with his brother and Capri — said he would quit his day job if the channel passed 100,000 subscribers.
  • Within two months of Carter quitting, the original channel, Stephen Sharer, hit 1 million subscribers, prompting her to leave her job at LinkedIn. At first, Capri spent time on the back end of the channel, managing the email account, audience engagement through comments, and fan mail to build audience loyalty, she said.
  • She said they try for a 50% watch time on videos and will look at where viewers click off from the video through the data provided by YouTube's creator studio.
  • Capri said she earns money through ads on her YouTube videos, brand partnerships, and other opportunities, like merchandise.

Teens on TikTok are hoping Juice Wrld faked his death, thanks to widespread conspiracies and an eerie meme

  • Juice Wrld reportedly had a seizure early Sunday morning as his plane was being searched by police in Chicago.
  • The conspiracy also involves TikTok, because there was a trend on the short video-sharing platform a few months ago to fake a seizure to the Juice Wrld song "Lucid Dreams" before Higgins died after a seizure on December 8.
  • The top trending TikTok for the search term "Juice Wrld" is a breakdown of the conspiracy that had almost 3 million likes at the time of publication.
  • Similar theories spread after XXXTentacion's death, but this time, the eerily prescient TikTok meme has seemingly given the conspiracies a credibility boost to young fans.
  • But The New York Times reports that law enforcement officials were waiting for Higgins' private plane to land in Chicago early Sunday morning, having received information from a federal task force that drugs and guns were suspected to be on board.

  • Amazon's aggressive push to grow its surveillance-camera company Ring is working, and adoption has skyrocketed in the past two years thanks to deals with hundreds of police departments.
  • Anyone can install the app and create an account, but owners of Ring devices can also upload video snippets to the service, either when they have something they want to share or when police request it using the companion portal for law enforcement.
  • Gizmodo this week published a new report delving into video data available on Neighbors to identify precisely how many Ring cameras are deployed, and where.
  • The report managed to grab the precise locations of about 20,000 Ring cameras in 9-square-mile zones of 15 different US cities.
  • In a location selected at random in Washington, DC, for example, Gizmodo was able to identify at least 1,863 unique Ring cameras that had uploaded video to Neighbors during the 500-day window.
