Dancing In The Streets
In a brilliant, only-in-New York event, Improv Everywhere generated a dance party in collaboration with the Museum of the City of New York’s new exhibition New York, New Music: 1980-1986.
eCommerce Store Ratings In Organic Search
Google is testing the inclusion of seller ratings in organic search, a feature which was previously displayed only in paid search.
- Google Tests Seller Ratings in Organic Search
- Check your seller ratings: https://www.google.com/shopping/ratings/account/lookup?q=www.example.com
OK, I've now had more time to look into the new Seller Rating test. Definitely one of the more interesting organic feature developments in recent times. Application is actually broader than I thought (have added some updates to my post). https://t.co/ReA9jvC7wG pic.twitter.com/0ZxVFqZzNj— Brodie Clark (@brodieseo) June 26, 2021

Conversational Twitter Features
Twitter is working on a new option which would enable users to share their tweets with selected audiences, as opposed to all of their followers with every tweet. The idea is that this would help users get more out of their Twitter experience, and avoid them having to create separate accounts for different audiences and interests.

DiGiorno Goes Great With Porno
On July 14, DiGiorno took to Twitter to solicit a new slogan. What could go wrong!?
Screw the slogan. Launch a new cologne instead. Call it DiGior. Make it smell like pizza. Get sued by the French. Sell a ton more pizza from all the free press.— David Berkowitz (@dberkowitz) July 15, 2021

Unbelievable: Gun Kit Makes Glock Look Like A Toy
Culper Precision’s custom design for a Glock handgun arrived at a time when gun violence is soaring and little is being done to keep lethal weapons out of the hands of children, who wind up shooting themselves or others.
This "Lego Glock" is an actual thing you can buy, build and shoot: "...honestly what childhood toy is more welcoming than a big ole pile of blocks:” https://t.co/wBXl5GP6an— Shannon Watts (@shannonrwatts) July 8, 2021
Unintentional shootings among children have risen by 30% in the past year. pic.twitter.com/ZmQXiefOE7
