    Baseball legend Curt Schilling penned a scathing column Sunday targeting a group of individuals who sent sexually derogatory tweets to his daughter over the weekend. It started when Schilling tweeted a simple congratulatory message to his 17-year-old daughter Gabby for getting accepted into college. Moments later, Schilling and Gabby’s Twitter accounts were flooded with vulgar, sexually-explicit messages that TheBlaze has chosen not to reprint. Being a father, Schilling could not stand by and do nothing. The legendary pitcher penned a blistering columnon his blog. -snip In his blog post, Shilling particularly targeted two individuals and published screen shots of the comments...

    ISIS has been under attack in the last few days from Twitter, which has quietly suspended at least 2,000 accounts linked to the terror group and its supporters, according to people with knowledge of the operation. The sites shut down include some of the most important distributors of ISIS messages in a major escalation against ISIS's propaganda and recruitment efforts, according to J.M. Berger, a terrorism analyst who monitors ISIS online messaging. "Twitter has been doing a whole lot over the past week. They've slammed them pretty hard, including the official media distribution guys," Berger said. He said 13 of...

    Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski have wondered out loud whether Michael Schmidt, the New York Times reporter who broke the story about Hillary using private email during her time as Secretary of State, might be fearing "retribution" from Hillary's camp. When Joe and Mika interviewed New York Times Schmidt on today's Morning Joe, Scarborough had to work to get Schmidt to say something that was in his own article: that while Colin Powell also used private email as Secretary of State, there were no rules prohibiting that at the time. Later, Joe and Mika later remarked that they were "taken...

Cypriot President Nicos Anastasiades concluded a four-day visit to Russia on Feb. 28, hours after Nemtsov was killed. U.S. Ambassador John Koenig asked on Twitter: "What do people in #Cyprus think about the week in Russia as seen from here? Anastasiades visit and statements, #Nemtsov assassination?"

    Isis supporters have threatened Twitter employees, including co-founder Jack Dorsey specifically, with death over the social network’s practice of blocking accounts associated with the group. In an Arabic post uploaded to the image-sharing site JustPaste.it, the group told Twitter that “your virtual war on us will cause a real war on you”. It warned that Jack Dorsey and Twitter employees have “become a target for the soldiers of the Caliphate and supporters scattered among your midst!” “You started this failed war … We told you from the beginning it’s not your war, but you didn’t get it and kept closing...

I brought this on myself. This is my fault.”Olbermann saw a tweet from a Penn State fan, and didn’t know there was a link...

    ISIS is considered a major threat by the US and other countries for its terrorist tactics in occupying areas of Syria and Iraq. The group has been using social networks such as Twitter to spread its message and encourge followers to carry out attacks. In January, ISIS posted a video on Twitter urging followers to attack targets in the West, CBS News reported at the time. Twitter's guidelines specifically bar users from posting content that calls for threats of violence against others. As such, the site has been busy removing ISIS accounts almost as soon as they pop up. But...

In their view, simply working for the talk host is apparently a crime, with an online and legal harassment campaign as punishment.

As a result of his position with the show, longtime spokesman/ advisor Brian Glicklich has found himself on the receiving end of a harassment campaign after he began to investigate the inner workings of this secretive group.

He responded to the tweet with a response of "pitiful." "We are aware of the exchange Keith Olbermann had on Twitter last night regarding Penn State.

Scott Walker for claiming he could discern God’s will, only to admit that he had no idea Christians believed they could communicate with God through prayer.

Progressives who believe that dialogues, conversations, engagements, conferences and summits are keys to pacifying the world have a peculiar solemnity about using certain words that are potentially insensitive. This mentality is perhaps especially acute in digitally drenched people who believe that Twitter and other social media have the power to tame turbulent reality.</p>

She also revealed that the Department of Agriculture has more than 1,200 “media relations employees” nationwide. “White House officials have exploited non-news media to spoon-feed unfiltered messaging, at times pure propaganda, into the public’s mouth.

    The NY Post tweeted that "Federal Reserve head Yellen announces bail-in in emergency meeting, rumored negative rate to be set at 4pm EST today," and US equity markets briefly started to rise... followed by a tweet that "The Fed would peg the Dollar to the Swiss Franc" and "Chinese anti-ship missile fired at USS George Washington." Both seemed odd and shortly after, The NY Post had deleted the tweets and explained that it had been hacked... The same tweets were also seen on the Twitter account of the wire service UPI.

    Officials may have tracked down the leader of the group responsible for the not particularly harmful (but quite embarrassing) United States Central Command social media hack Monday, and the culprit may be none other than a 20-year-old Brit named Junaid Hussain. The avowed ISIS supporter who also goes by the moniker "TriCk" is believed to be behind the so-called Cyber Caliphate, which undertook the extremely strenuous task of guessing passwords to accounts CENTCOM wasn't smart enough to protect with two-step verification.The millennial has already served a stint in prison for leaking former British PM Tony Blair's personal information and photos....

    (CNN)One military wife recalls staying up all night and deleting every Facebook picture of her children, every post that mentioned them or where they went to school. She Googled herself, trying to figure out how easy it would be to find where the family lived. In the morning, she went to her car and scraped the military decal off the front window. As the spouse of a Special Forces soldier, she's always tried to be conscious of how much she advertises that she and her three young children are a military family. "It's hard because I am so proud of...

    The Boston Globe’s boston.com this morning was silent amid a furor of criticism over their article mocking death threats aimed at Republican House Speaker John Boehner. Boston.com spokeswoman Mary Zanor did not return an email or call for comment today.

    Speed kills, and the iPhone goes from 0 to a good picture faster than anything else I was at Intel’s CES booth, composing a photo with my Android smartphone, when a pair of anonymous hands thrust a shining iPhone 6 Plus into my line of vision. A nonchalant tap of the camera shutter button later, the hands were pulling back, having captured a stupendously clear and sharp picture on the first attempt. By the time I’d completed my routine of setting proper focus and steadying myself, the dude who’d beaten me to a better shot with none of the effort...
