Let's talk about Twitter. Do you know how to Twitter? You probably think you do, but it's harder than it looks. Do you know who knows how to Twitter? Farhad Manjoo of the New York Times, that's who. Here's how he does it, and here's a selection of tweets just from the past week:
This reminds me of the time Farhad Inc. partnered with Farhad LLC.— Farhad Manjoo (@fmanjoo) September 15, 2015
From now on I'm gonna tweet everything I don't know. Brace yourselves.— Farhad Manjoo (@fmanjoo) September 15, 2015
I did a lot of cooking when I had an infant but unlike Fetty Wap I didn't attempt to cook pies with my baby.— Farhad Manjoo (@fmanjoo) September 13, 2015
Farhad also writes great columns for the NYT. So it's a bit of a mystery why he'd deign to come on the Vergecast this week. We'll ask him why his standards have dropped so far — but we'll probably also talk about iOS 9, ad blocking, Amazon's new gadgets, and whatever else comes up. So yes: watch this one.
We'll be live at our regular time today — 4:30PM ET / 1:30PM PT / 8:30PM GMT. You can watch via the Livestream embed above. And if you miss the live show, you can always watch the replay (using the embed above) or download the audio version on iTunes. And speaking of iTunes, be sure to rate us five stars if you enjoyed the show. We'll do our best to make sure you do.
One final note: be sure to listen to our brand new podcast, called Verge ESP, which blurs the lines between science and entertainment, as well as What's Tech?, which explains technology in layman's terms.
