Twitter will no longer allow political ads

Shep explains CEO Jack Dorsey’s stance on the topic which is starkly different than that of another social media giant.

Google says goodbye to Flash

Greg gives a eulogy for the software which will no longer be indexed for Google Search.

Plus, we share John Henshaw’s fiery take on the news:

Flash has always sucked

– Sucked for SEO

– Sucked because the UX for sites was all over the place

– Sucked because of slow loading sites

– Sucked for vulnerabilities

– Sucked because that’s all designers wanted to use

Not goodbye, but good riddance
