Anika Reed USA TODAY Published 3:28 PM EST Nov 20, 2018 Aaron Carter is done trying to explain himself – at least until his next tweet. The singer went off on a Twitter tirade Tuesday, tweeting almost every minute for more than two hours about everything from his career to missteps in his personal life and a possible proposal on the horizon. It all started when someone on Twitter asked why Carter never achieved the same success as Justin Bieber, another blonde former child star. "Listen man. I can’t sit here & just not say anything to that, I’ve been in this industry before he was born," Carter said. "I’ve had harder times and always bounce back. No I’m not Justin Bieber I’m Aaron Carter. I’m also in construction I paved the way. These kids have NEVER paid me homage." He continued: "Why don’t you try losing everything and having the professional world turn their backs on you including your fans, gain their … [Read more...] about Aaron Carter goes on Twitter tirade, hints he’s going to propose

Daniel Howes The Detroit News Published 2:38 p.m. UTC Jul 18, 2018 At 4:06 p.m. Wednesday, people involved in Detroit’s historic bankruptcy will gather at Republic Tavern on Grand River to mark the event that changed the city’s trajectory. They’ll likely greet old friends, their bonds forged in the crucible of high-stakes negotiations. They’ll tell stories. And it’s probably safe to say Chief Mediator Gerald Rosen, a now-retired federal judge, will recount the “grand bargain” that helped speed a consensual settlement of the largest municipal bankruptcy in American history. But the celebration belongs to the city itself. It belongs to residents who persevered darker times marred by dysfunction and corruption at City Hall, to pensioners forced to surrender a portion of their expected benefits in a process that threatened to mire the city in years of litigation, to business leaders who invested before the downward spiral … [Read more...] about Howes: Five years on, Detroit shows real gains

An avid traveler and amateur cook, he’d been a fan of Bourdain’s CNN show “Parts Unknown.” But more than that, the death of the celebrity chef brought back an especially painful memory. Brodsky, a 46-year-old digital producer in Phoenix, took to Twitter to share it: “Lost one of my closest friends 16 years ago, sadly he went the same way as Anthony. Wish he’d have reached out.

Clay Calvert is Brechner Eminent Scholar in Mass Communication at the University of Florida President Donald Trump's fondness for criticizing news organizations, "heckling journalists" and spouting points of public policy via his Twitter account is clear. News of his nomination of Christopher Wray to be the next FBI director, for example, came by tweet. His tweets carry the stamp of government authority: White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer recently declared "the president is the president of the United States, so they are considered official statements by the president of the United States." But just as seemingly everything Trump does and says sparks controversy, so too is the president's "prolific and unpredictable use of Twitter," as one reporter called it, raising a novel question of constitutional law: Is there a First Amendment right to access Trump's Twitter account? Enter the First Amendment The issue arises because when Trump objects to what people say about him … [Read more...] about CBS News Logo Should President Trump be allowed to block someone on Twitter?
