Twitter Tips, Peloton Failure, and Netflix's Emissions...

Are tips included with that Tweet? 🤔

Avid Twitter users may have noticed some changes on the app this week... The social media platform are showing their appreciation for creators through their new Tip Jar feature! Safety oversight at Peloton leads to loss of a child's life & recalls costing $165m

Peloton has almost had a kind of cult rising during the pandemic - they've even struggled to keep up with demand as people find ways to keep fit from home. Following investigations by a US watchdog, Peloton has recalled 125,000 of their Treads and Tread+. This comes after a 6-year-old died after getting stuck under the treadmill whilst it was still running, this is not the first sign of caution that there was a greater requirement for safety around the product, especially given that Peloton have had 72 other reports of injuries such as broken bones and cuts as a result of using their machine.

Let's add Netflix to the list of things which are damaging the planet 🌎

According to a BigThink article, watching just 30 minutes of Netflix produces 1.6kg of carbon dioxide – that’s emissions equivalent to driving 4 miles!
