An artificial intelligence-generated poem roasted Tesla CEO Elon Musk for his infamous Twitter presence, according to The Economist. The poem was created by GPT-3, the third-generation machine learning model from the San Francisco-based OpenAI, which was cofounded by Musk. The algorithm has garnered attention in the AI world for its advanced capabilities in interpreting datasets to churn out human-like text — in this case, a poem. The poem is entitled "Elon Musk by Dr. Seuss" and specifically references a 2018 tweet that landed him in hot water with the SEC, resulting in his exit as Tesla chairman and a $10 million fine. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. Tesla CEO Elon Musk's notorious Twitter presence was the inspiration for an AI-generated poem, written using the software from OpenAI, the company Musk himself helped found. According to The Economist, the San Francisco-based OpenAI supplied certain people, like artist Arram Sabeti, with an early version of the GPT-3 language in mid-July to test its capabilities. Sabeti used the algorithm to generate the poem, entitled "Elon Musk by Dr. Seuss," which you can read in full below: "The SEC said, "Musk,/your tweets are a blight./They really could cost you your job,/if you don't stop/all this tweetingat night."/…Then Musk cried, "Why?/The tweets I wrote are not mean,/I don't use all-caps/and I'm sure that my tweets are clean."/"But your tweets can move markets/and that's why we're sore./You may be a genius/and a billionaire,/but that doesn't give you the right to be a bore!" The AI-generated poem references Musk's oftentimes incendiary comments posted on Twitter. In one case, the Tesla CEO took to the platform in August 2018, tweeting that has was considering taking the company private at $420 per share and that funding was secured. The tweet "caused significant confusion and disruption in the market for Tesla's stock and resulting harm to investors," according to the Security Exchange Commission, which filed a lawsuit against Musk. The SEC alleged that Musk "falsely indicated" that the company had secured funding on Twitter and that the $420 share price was 20% higher than it actually was at the time. The lawsuit resulted in Musk stepping down as Tesla chairman and coughing up a $10 million fine. GPT-3, the five-year-old research lab's third iteration of the language-generation model, has been heralded as a piece of advanced artificial intelligence technology. It can interpret patterns in text created by humans and use that insight to churn out human-like language based on a prompt.  OpenAI's new tool has been called "groundbreaking," despite having some "serious weaknesses," but a discussion has long existed concerning how artificial intelligence can contribute to biased language and misinformation. The company had previously said the language was too dangerous to release as open-source software since it could easily be misused. But in mid-June, the firm said it would start selling the algorithm in a private beta.  Musk cofounded OpenAI in 2015 with a handful of entrepreneurs, including ex-Y Combinator president Sam Altman. Musk said last February that he had not been "closely involved" with OpenAI for over a year, as he was focusing more closely on Tesla and SpaceX. He also said he "didn't agree with some of what the OpenAI team wanted to do." Read the full feature on The Economist here.SEE ALSO: Elon Musk tweeted that the Egyptian pyramids were built by aliens.

While the short-form video app TikTok offers relatively few ways for its creators to make money, the app's top stars have found a variety of means to earn a living from their large followings. TikTok creators can earn big paychecks by doing brand deals, paid song integrations, app marketing, merchandising, and pushing product sales for storefronts on other websites like Etsy and Depop. We broke down the seven main ways influencers on TikTok can earn money. Subscribe to Business Insider's influencer newsletter: Influencer Dashboard. TikTok is still in the early stages of releasing features that allow its creators to make money. Unlike competitors like YouTube and Facebook that run advertising alongside videos and share revenue with creators, TikTok's built-in monetization features remain relatively limited. The company offers a "virtual gifts" feature that allows creators to earn money while livestreaming by receiving digital "gifts" from fans that can be converted into cash. It built a creator marketplace platform to help marketers connect with its top stars for potential brand deals. And TikTok announced in July that it's setting aside $200 million (and up to $1 billion over three years) to pay influencers who are "seeking opportunities to foster a livelihood through their innovative content." But many creators hoping to earn a living from TikTok don't rely on the app's built-in monetization features, turning instead to a variety of alternative revenue streams like paid song integrations, brand deals, app marketing, merchandise, and promoting product sales on other websites like Etsy and Depop. And often with the help of a manager or agent, creators land lucrative sponsorship deals with major brands like American Eagle or Chipotle. The top TikTok creators are earning huge paychecks. On Thursday, Forbes released a ranking of the top-earning TikTok stars in the last year, with Addison Rae Easterling taking the top spot at $5 million, followed by Charli D'Amelio at $4 million.  Business Insider spoke with influencers across a variety of content categories to learn how they're making money on the app. Here are the seven ways that creators are generating revenue through their TikTok accounts:Music marketing (song integrations) TikTok has become a major promotional tool for the music industry. Songs can take off on TikTok by accident, as with the sudden surge in popularity of Matthew Wilder's 1983 hit "Break My Stride" earlier this year. In other instances, marketers or artists try to make songs trend by tapping into existing TikTok fads, creating original songs, or adapting tracks for TikTok's short-video format and hiring influencers to promote them. For TikTok influencers, promoting songs can be a reliable (and quick) way to earn extra income from the app. "The biggest marketplace on TikTok is music sponsored posts," TikTok creator Jack Innanen said. "I don't do dance videos, and I don't do videos with music, so I miss out on that entire market." Ariell Nicholas Yahid, a talent manager at the TikTok-focused talent-management upstart the Fuel Injector, said his company would facilitate four to five paid song integrations a week for the company's TikTok creators. "It seems like a lot, but in the music industry there's about 100 songs a week, " Yahid said. "Every music label, every record label, they have a budget now for TikTok because it's becoming so huge." The starting rate for a song integration is in the low hundreds of dollars but can go well above $5,000 for a single post, industry insiders said. Read more on TikTok music marketing: TikTok influencers are getting paid thousands of dollars to promote songs, as the app becomes a major force in the music industry How a media company that turns songs into TikTok trends helped 'Sunday Best' appear in over 20 million videos and become a global hit on Billboard and Spotify App marketing Influencers and marketers told Business Insider that a single TikTok app promotion can generate tens of thousands of dollars in revenue for a creator.  "I started doing apps around four weeks ago, and it was a gamechanger," said Reagan Yorke, a 19-year-old college student who was recently paid tens of thousands of dollars to promote the group video chat app Bunch to her 2.5 million TikTok followers. Yorke worked with the app-marketing company Yoke, which provided her with a tracking link to add to her TikTok bio that would give her credit for any app installs she drove from her account. On June 14, she posted a video promoting Bunch to her followers, and the video took off, driving 11.5 million video views, 2.5 million likes, and 531,000 shares to date. "I literally posted it right before I went to sleep," Yorke said. "I woke up the next day and I had like $20,000 in my account, so I was just like, is this real?" Read more about app marketing on TikTok:  TikTok influencers say they're making tens of thousands of dollars by promoting apps in videos: 'There's not really a limit on how much you can earn' Working with a brand on sponsored content Influencers can land sponsorships through TikTok's monetization team (which reaches out to creators), using a brand or agency, or from a record label. For an official TikTok campaign, such as a "Hashtag Challenge," TikTok will provide the sponsorship to the creator directly. TikTok creator Cosette Rinab (2 million TikTok followers) told Business Insider in January that she earns most of her revenue through sponsored posts on TikTok.  Rinab has landed sponsorships with brands like Bumble, Hollister, and Universal, and there are also some management firms, like Whalar Stars and Amp Studios, that help creators land deals and opportunities. In the beginning, Rinab managed her TikTok business on her own. Now she is represented by the talent agency CAA. "At the end of the day, they are paying for a commercial to be produced and posted on the page," she said. "It's really important to know the value in that and know what they are getting out of it, and how your time should be compensated."  David White, the head of influencer management at Whalar Stars, told Business Insider in January that the factors considered when pricing a TikTok campaign generally are the creator's audience size, commercial licensing, brand exclusivity, and campaign scope. He said an audio integration for a record label was priced significantly less than an official brand sponsorship.

Selling merch is a popular revenue stream for top creators, often through companies like Fanjoy, Killer Merch, and Teespring. The current coronavirus pandemic has also shown how direct sales can stabilize an influencer's income in a time when advertising revenue decreases, and brands cancel influencer-marketing campaigns or put projects on hold. Merch sales have actually increased since the pandemic, Chris Vaccarino, CEO and founder of Fanjoy, told Business Insider in April. Aside from clothing, perfume launches — which have been a staple among Hollywood celebrities and performers like Taylor Swift and Ariana Grande — have also been a popular product for some influencers, like Tana Mongeau and twin-influencers Ethan and Grayson Dolan.  Read more on merch:  Inside the rise of Fanjoy, from selling music T-shirts to dominating influencer merchandise with YouTube star clients like David Dobrik and Jake Paul Promoting sales for a storefront on another platform like Etsy or Depop Artists, clothing resellers, and even slime makers have found that their TikTok accounts can be a key tool for driving sales on their storefronts on other platforms like Depop, Poshmark, and Etsy. Graphic artist and animator Annie Morcos said she started taking TikTok seriously in January when one of her videos attracted 3 million likes and 18 million views. The Los Angeles-based creator added her Etsy shop name to her TikTok bio so her hundreds of thousands of followers would know where they could buy her art. "I really didn't sell a lot of my artwork before, and in the past two months, all my art on my Etsy is flying," she said. "Everybody that follows me on TikTok wants a piece of my work." Emma Rogue, a Depop clothing reseller, posted a video of her packaging up her recent sales and went viral within a few days with over 6 million views.  "The amount of sales that I got from that — it was just crazy," she said. "TikTok is definitely a huge driver and that's why I'm keeping up with TikTok." Rogue made over $7,600 in sales that one week when her TikTok went viral and now she makes between $7,000 and $8,000 in sales each month (before she was making $3,000 to $4,000 a month).

With this feature, creators can then earn money from things like affiliate links. When it comes to affiliate marketing, influencers typically earn a rate anywhere between 1% and 20%. Retail programs generally offer a lower rate, and tech programs run higher, according to industry professionals. There are a number of factors that play into the percentage. Most affiliate programs are run on the same basic principles: members apply and once they are accepted they are granted access to brands and can earn a commission off of every sale made through their personalized links. Some networks offer varying rates, tools (like shoppable apps or special tracking information), and each network has specific qualifications to apply. But linking on TikTok is not as effective as other platforms like YouTube or Instagram, because users can only add one link to their profile and they cannot include hyperlinks within a video description or comment, like on YouTube.

Talk about a Buzz kill.Toward the end of Toy Story 3, viewers everywhere were traumatised when their favorite lovable toys slid toward an incinerator and were nearly destroyed. The toys were saved at the last minute, but what would’ve happened if they hadn’t been? Would they have died? Would their spirits have gone to the great (infinity and) beyond? Well, that very “childhood-ruining debate” (as Uproxx called it) went viral over the weekend, with a Twitter user wondering if the toys in Toy Story could die.my girlfriend and i are having a big fight bc i think the toys from Toy Story are immortal and she thinks they can die— mustard clown (@markydoodoo) August 2, 2020Twitter users tackled the topic from all angles. One person argued that toys are “immortal” but not “invincible,” another said that toys can’t die a “total death,” and yet another suggested that if you “chopped off woody’s head ... and put it far far away from his body where no one could put it back on... he must be dead.”So what’s the truth? Lee Unkrich, who directed Toy Story 3, came across the debate and offered his own definitive answer.Unkrich said that toys “live as long as they exist.” However, if they were to be “utterly destroyed,” it’d be “game over.”They live as long as they exist. But if they were to be utterly destroyed? Say, in an incinerator? Game over. https://t.co/p9nwIAjAl8— Lee Unkrich (@leeunkrich) August 2, 2020Dang, Woody. Remember when all you had to worry about was a snake in your boot?Although Woody, Buzz and the gang avoid the ultimate fate in Toy Story 3, at least one edit of the movie didn’t end that way.Previously, Unkrich and Coco writer and director Adrian Molina, who was a storyboard artist on Toy Story 3, told us about a version of the film where the toys didn’t escape the incinerator. Thankfully, that edit was made as a joke, and it wasn’t — as Unkrich might say (perhaps in the voice of Jigsaw from the Saw movies) — “game over.”READ MORE: Disney+ Tried To Use CGI To Edit Daryl Hannah's Bum Out Of Splash...

The reveal of Max and Stacey’s affair to the whole Branning family on Christmas Day is one of EastEnders’ most iconic episodes ever – but it almost didn’t happen. Actor Jake Wood has revealed how bosses had originally planned to end the characters’ tryst months before the plot eventually came to a head in 2007. Speaking on EastEnders: Secrets From The Square, Jake – who plays Max – told host Stacey Dooley: “I remember that the Max and Stacey affair was originally going to be shorter. I think it was originally going to be six months. And they changed it.“They extended it, because I think they realised they wanted it to be the Christmas storyline.“Obviously, it really paid off,” he added. The Christmas 2007 episode – which is also set to be repeated this week – saw Lauren Branning play secret footage of Max and Stacey together as the family sat down to watch a DVD after lunch, revealing their affair to Max’s wife Tanya and his son Bradley, who was married to Stacey.  Reflecting on the scenes, which attracted over 14 million viewers, Jake said: “All the family is there! Awful, isn’t it? Even now, it makes me feel a bit uncomfortable watching it.“I remember we shot it quite a few times, and the lovely thing about that was the director just let it play out. He wasn’t telling anyone what shots he was getting, so everyone was really in that moment.”EastEnders is currently showing Secrets Of The Square featuring behind-the-scenes interviews with the cast, along with a series of iconic episodes from the soap’s vault, in place of new instalments. The show fell off the air for the first time in its 35-year history last month when it ran out of episodes that were recorded before the coronavirus pandemic shut down production. Filming has since resumed, with EastEnders set to return to screens in the autumn. EastEnders: Secrets From The Square with Jake Wood and Scott Maslen airs on Monday at 8pm on BBC One, while the 2007 Christmas special airs as part of the Iconic Episodes series on Tuesday at 7.30pm. MORE EASTENDERS: EastEnders Star Reveals Behind-The-Scenes Story About That Infamous 'How's Adam?'

I’m very humbled and very grateful and gracious but my artist of my life is Beyoncé. And this album to me, the Lemonade album, is just so monumental.“We all got to see another side to you that you don’t always let us see, and we appreciate that.“All us artists here adore you. You are our light. And the way you make me and my friends feel, the way you make my Black friends feel, is empowering.”READ MORE: Beyoncé Stuns Fans After Debuting Already Music Video To Tie In With Black Is King Release On Disney+ Beyoncé Urges Fans To ‘Vote Like Our Life Depends On It’ In Rousing BET Awards Speech Adele Putting On Her Glastonbury Dress To Watch Her Headline Set On TV Is A Total Lockdown Mood
Lollapalooza moved online this year, and the music festival kicked off in an appropriately online way: with the debut of a new music video from virtual creator Miquela. The video is an entirely CG affair, created remotely, for the single “Hard Feelings.” It depicts Miquela and a dance crew on the back of a flatbed track, as they twist their way through a desert landscape that slowly morphs into something more surreal. For the uninitiated, Miquela is essentially a digital avatar that started out as a CG influencer on Instagram and has since expanded into the world of music, releasing several singles and music videos since 2017. She’s part of a burgeoning field of digital influencers. According to Nicole de Ayora, CCO of Brud, the company... Continue reading…
Netflix's "Umbrella Academy" showrunner Steve Blackman talked with Business Insider about how season two used the show's budget "more effectively." Blackman teased plans for future seasons and said he already knows what season three would be about if Netflix renews it. He also discussed the deviations from the comic book source material by Gerard Way and Gabriel Bá. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. Warning: This post contains spoilers for "The Umbrella Academy" season two When Netflix's comic-book series "The Umbrella Academy" debuted last year, it was an instant hit. Netflix said that the show, based on the Dark Horse comic of the same name by writer Gerard Way and artist Gabriel Bá, was watched by 45 million member households in its first month of release, making it one of its most popular shows ever. So expectations are high for season two, which debuted on the streaming giant on Friday. But showrunner Steve Blackman said that the show's popularity didn't change his plans for the second season. He always knew that he wanted it to be bigger in scope. "The goal was always to step it up a little more but without losing what makes our show entertaining," Blackman told Business Insider. Critics are already loving the season, which has a 92% critic score on Rotten Tomatoes. With the show's popularity, it would be surprising if Netflix didn't renew it for a third season — and Blackman already knows what it would be about. In his interview with Business Insider, Blackman teased future plans and talked about how season two deviates from the comic book.  Read the full interview below: This interview has been lightly edited for length and clarity. Travis Clark: The scope of this season feels bigger. After the popularity of the first season, did anything change from your initial plans for season two? Steve Blackman: I had a pretty good sense of what season two was as I was finishing season one before we had even gotten picked up [for a second season]. I wanted the storytelling to feel bigger in season two and we stepped it up with the VFX and honed our craft a little more with that. And I think we told bigger, more rounded stories. We dealt with bigger issues this year, like what it would be like to be a person of color in the South [in 1960s America] and homophobia in that time period. So the goal was always to step it up a little more but without losing what makes our show entertaining as this wonderful show about family dysfunction. Clark: You mentioned that you stepped it up with VFX ... did Netflix throw more money at you after the first season was so popular? Blackman: [laughs] I think there was a bit of an increase but we used our money more effectively. In the first season we were testing things out and trying different things, but once we got the rhythm of the show, in season two we were more effective in how we did things.  The Dallas street [the setting for much of the season, including the restaurant where the sit-in protest takes place] was actually shot in a town in northern Ontario. It has no VFX treatment, it really looks like that. We just did physical changes on the storefronts. But we decided that if we could find a place like that where we didn't have to spend a lot of money, we could spend that money more on A.J. Carmichael, young Pogo, and other things. We did actually go to Dallas to film on the Grassy Knoll, so there's obviously VFX treatment in the Kennedy motorcade, but the setting is all real. We were very careful about how we spent our money this year. Clark: Allison's [played by Emmy Raver-Lampman] story [as a Civil Rights activist] this season takes on new meaning after recent events. Has that been on your mind leading up to the premiere of the season? Blackman: Yeah. We wrote the show a year ago, but I knew we couldn't tell a story set in Dallas in 1963 and not address the racial issues and homophobia of the time period. We did an enormous amount of research, especially for the sit-in scene. It wasn't based on any one sit-in, it was an amalgamation of many sit-ins, but it was an emotional few days to shoot that scene. We wanted it to feel real and to tell an honest story about this time period and racial injustice. Clark: One of my favorite aspects of the show is the musical cues. Were there any that were your favorites and how did those come to be? Blackman: Music is a big part of my life and I see it as another character in this show. On most shows, they shoot it and then put music in afterwards. I pick the songs ahead of time. I encourage the writers to include them in the scripts. If I think of a song, I'll write a scene because of that song. So I know pretty much ahead of time all the music that will be used in the season and we like to use music that will subvert expectations. For instance, the Backstreet Boys song probably shouldn't fit in that fight scene and that sequence, but it does magically work. It was fun to think of what lyric Klaus would steal from a song in the future and tell his followers "here's an inspirational quote of mine." Those are some of my favorites but I love all the music.  Clark: I'm a big fan of the comic but respect the deviations the show takes from it.  I wanted to walk through some of those and how they came to be, like the Sissy and Harlan storyline, introducing Lila, and even Diego's powers, which aren't really explained in the comic but in the final episode we see him slow down those bullets. Blackman: The source material is a great springboard and I have a great relationship with Gerard [Way, the writer] and Gabriel [Bá, the artist]. But we realized early on that it couldn't be a carbon copy. There were a lot of things we couldn't afford to do even with a feature budget. They've been kind of enough to allow me to deviate, as a TV creator, and do what I want to do. I'm always extremely respectful of the graphic novels. Like, I couldn't not do A.J. Carmichael this year. That was something I was striving to do and the VFX company Weta came through with that. But it's a TV world and it's necessary for us to create some other characters. Lila was a lot of fun, because the premise of the comic was that there were 43 mothers out there who gave birth to 43 [superpowered] kids. It was great to meet another one of those kids this year, and it's fair to say we could meet some others. With Diego, his powers aren't really defined, but we thought "if you can curve and bend metallic objects like knives, why can't you do that to bullets?" But all of their powers are still evolving. They never finished their training with their dad because the family broke up. I think as long as the show is on the air we're going to show that their powers are always evolving and they're discovering new bits of their powers. Clark: Especially Vanya's [played by Ellen Page] powers, and her story really goes in a new direction this season. How did the relationship with Sissy come to be? That's the heart of the season and you realize that by the final episode. Did you always know, even looking back to season one, that you wanted to flesh out Vanya's storyline with this new character? Blackman: Her love story in season one wasn't a real love story. In season two, her memory is gone and she's coming into her own, so I wanted her to have a beautiful love story, but I needed to complicate it, too. Being gay or queer in 1963 was a criminal offense, but also, Sissy has a family and a kid who can't speak, which is similar to my son. My son's on the spectrum.  Ellen and I talked a lot about the LGBT storyline and how to tell a sweet love story but with all of these layers to it. And all of their powers come from something inside of them and Vanya inadvertently gives Harlan [Sissy's son] her powers when she saves his life. So the origin of their powers is something we may explore later on, too. Clark: Did Ellen and the other actors give a lot of feedback for their characters' storylines this season? Blackman: I always welcome their input. I talk with all of them about their storylines before and during the season. Ellen had many thoughts, all good, and a lot of that story we crafted together, especially the ending. Ellen really wanted to tell a story that still had hope in the end and wasn't a tragic queer love story. [Vanya and Sissy] aren't together in the end, but had they not separated they would have stayed together for many years. But yeah, the ending is definitely something Ellen and I talked about a lot and I think that's what made it beautiful in the end.  Clark: You've mentioned a few things you'd want to explore in later seasons and season two ends on a big cliffhanger. Have you heard from Netflix about a third season? Blackman: We haven't gotten picked up yet but I definitely know what it would be about. My fingers are crossed. Clark: Do you have a longterm vision for the series or taking it one season at a time? Blackman: I'm taking it one season at a time. With that said, I know Gerard has many volumes in his mind of what he wants to do and he's working on volume four [of the comic series] now. So as long as Gerard has ideas for the future, I like to think we could do at least four seasons. But I know season three and I'll worry about the next season as it comes. SEE ALSO: What AMC and Universal's deal to shorten the theatrical window to 17 days means for the future of movies Join the conversation about this story » NOW WATCH: What makes 'Parasite' so shocking is the twist that happens in a 10-minute sequence

As the short-form video app TikTok continues to grow in the US and other key markets, some media companies are focusing more attention on building audiences on the platform. Brother, a Snapchat-focused lifestyle and entertainment brand with 24 million fans on its Snapchat Discover page, told Business Insider that "it's really important" to be on TikTok right now. "I think you see more and more trends or pieces of [user-generated content] or pieces of music that originate on TikTok take off as much as they do on any other platform now," said Joe Caporoso, EVP of content & brand platforms at Team Whistle, the digital-entertainment startup that owns the Brother brand. Like some other media companies that have ventured onto TikTok, Brother is focusing on making personality-driven content and tapping into the app's trends to build out its audience. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. The media brand Brother has built an audience of over 24 million subscribers on Snapchat in the four years since it launched as a lifestyle and entertainment channel in the app's Discover section. Now its parent company, Team Whistle, hopes to replicate its success on the latest platform to capture young people's attention: TikTok. "We're definitely excited about their potential on TikTok, and it's something that's grown really well for them over the past couple months since we started being active again with it," said Joe Caporoso, EVP of content & brand platforms at Whistle, which took over the Brother brand last year after buying its producer, the mobile-content studio Vertical Networks.  Brother's TikTok account is a mix of reshared user-generated content and original videos with on-air personalities who do science experiments, dance the moonwalk, and stick their faces in bowls of cereal.  As with other media companies like The Washington Post and The Infatuation that have ventured onto TikTok, the team at Brother is focusing on personality-driven content and tapping into the app's trends to build out its audience (which currently stands at about 460,000 fans). "I think you want to be able to participate in trends as they're taking off," Caporoso said. "To properly manage any account day-to-day, whether it's TikTok or any other platforms, a big part of the community management is just kind of having your head in the app every single day to see what's taking off." "With Brother, it feels a little less like an actual media-publisher brand," he added. "We try to drive it more with the personalities and the people who are actually on camera." Following a format popularized by the TikTok account Flighthouse (another short-form video company with in-studio capabilities), Brother has invited trendy TikTok creators to appear in its mini shows as it taps into what's being shared on TikTok. The company recently filmed a video with the TikTok music artist Nodis, whose song "All About Cake (feat. KyleYouMadeThat)," has appeared in over 8 million videos on the app.  Forming a content partnership with TikTok As it looks to build an audience on TikTok, Whistle is also working directly with TikTok to grow its Brother brand. The company is one of a few hundred publishers and creators that received grants from the social platform as part of a $50 million "creative learning" fund that TikTok announced in May to encourage content creators to produce more DIY and educational content.  While Brother first opened its TikTok account in January 2019 (before Whistle bought its content studio), the company has recently refocused its TikTok efforts after integrating Brother's creators into the Team Whistle content and analytics team, the company said.  "From everything we've seen and heard from TikTok, they really want to lean into being a DIY and an educational platform," Caporoso said. "I think as a platform they're trying to emphasize more original content and content that is more educational and DIY content over maybe some of the dancing or music videos that have been really popular." Caporoso declined to share how much Whistle had received from TikTok as part of its creative learning initiative, but said it wasn't anything "massive or gamechanging." "It was definitely a nice shot in the arm for a brand that had really been siloed to generating week-to-week revenue only through one social platform in Snapchat," Caporoso said of the TikTok funding. "A big thing that we always try to emphasize is we want to be a distributed media company. We want to diversify our revenue streams as much as possible. So to add TikTok on top of Snapchat along with some of these other platforms was an exciting thing to happen pretty quickly." Brother's decision to accept a grant from TikTok offers a glimpse into the brand's longer-term strategy of building relationships with the social platforms it creates content on. Vertical Networks, the studio that first created Brother, received an investment from Snap Inc. when it first launched on Snapchat, according to Recode. Brother isn't going to neglect its bread-and-butter platform, Snapchat While Brother has its sights on TikTok for an expansion, Caporoso said it's definitely not going to slow down on Snapchat, where the vast majority of its audience lives. Brother had 13 million monthly active users on Snapchat last month, which the company said is up 18% from its monthly average on the app in the first quarter of 2020. Whistle said it's on track to pass $100 million in revenue this year across its full suite of sports and entertainment-focused businesses. "We don't want to take our foot off the gas on Snapchat at all because that's such a big dynamic audience that they've built," he said. "We feel strongly that there is a young Gen Z audience on TikTok, so it's really important for us to be there. I think you see more and more trends or pieces of [user-generated content] or pieces of music that originate on TikTok take off as much as they do on any other platform now."

Boris Johnson has condemned both Twitter and Instagram for failing to act quickly enough to remove anti-Semitic posts by grime star Wiley.As No.10 warned that it was determined to introduce new laws protecting users of all social media platforms, the prime minister’s spokesperson said he wanted big tech firms to go “much further and faster” in removing hateful content.Wiley, who has half a million followers on Twitter, has been suspended for seven days following a stream of rambling, abusive tweets that targeted Jewish people.Twitter is being subjected to a two-day boycott by leading politicians and commentators in protest at its failure to suspend the grime artist more swiftly and for not booting him off the platform completely.Home secretary Priti Patel has now written to Twitter and Instagram demanding answers on why a string of hateful posts were allowed to remain in place for hours and in some cases days.“The PM would echo the comments of the home secretary yesterday,” the spokesperson said. “We expect a full response.”“Anti-Semitic posts from Wiley are abhorrent...This material should not have been able to remain on Twitter and Instagram for so long.“Social media companies need to go much further and faster in removing hateful content such as this. The message is clear: Twitter needs to do better on this.”The anti-Semitic content posted by Wiley, whose real name is Richard Cowie, is also being investigated by the Metropolitan Police, with a spokesperson saying that the “relevant material is being assessed”.Among the abuse posted were suggestions that Jews should be shot, that a mixed race Jewish woman was “not Black” and retweets of messages from Holocaust deniers.The spokesperson explained that the PM had decided not to join the boycott of Twitter because “it’s important to that during the pandemic that we continue to communicate important public health messages”.“But at the same time we have set out very clearly that Twitter’s performance has not been good enough in response to the anti-Semitic comments made by Wiley and it needs to do much better.”No.10 warned that it was currently consulting on much tougher measures to police big tech firms with new ‘online harms’ legislation. “What we are seeking to do is deliver the most comprehensive regime to tackling online harms anywhere in the world,” the spokesperson said, adding a full government response would now take place “this autumn”.“This will be followed by new laws which place duty of care on online platforms to ensure they keep their users safe.”Using the hashtag #NoSafeSpaceForJewHate, campaigners have accused Twitter of “ignoring anti-Semitism” after offensive remarks on Wiley’s account were still visible 12 hours after they were first posted.Britain’s Chief Rabbi Ephraim Mirvis said he would take part in the protest, having already written to bosses at Twitter and Facebook to tell them: “Your inaction amounts to complicity.”Related...

Influential actors, journalists, politicians and celebrities have started a 48-hour boycott of Twitter to protest its handling of anti-Semitic tweets from the account of grime artist Wiley. Using the hashtag #NoSafeSpaceForJewHate, campaigners have accused Twitter of “ignoring anti-Semitism” after offensive remarks on Wiley’s account were still visible 12 hours after they were first posted. Among those ditching the social media platform from 9am on Monday were Countdown’s Rachel Riley, singer Jessie Ware, Reverend Richard Coles and journalist James O’Brien. Britain’s Chief Rabbi Ephraim Mirvis said he would take part in the protest, having already written to bosses at Twitter and Facebook to tell them: “Your inaction amounts to complicity.”  The JC will observe tomorrow's 48 hour ⁦@Twitter⁩ walk out.We want to send the message to @jack that there must be #NoSafeSpaceForJewHateBy refusing to take serious action against Jew hate, Twitter enables & promotes racism.

However, the social media platform has previously said that “abuse and harassment” have “no place” on its service and that it takes enforcement action over accounts which violate its rules addressing hateful conduct.The Met Police is also investigating the anti-Semitic posts, with a spokesperson saying that the “relevant material is being assessed”.The Campaign Against Anti-Semitism has called on the Cabinet Office to strip 41-year-old Wiley, who is an MBE, of the honour he was given in 2018. We have written to the Chairman of @CabinetOfficeUK’s Honours Forfeiture Committee to ask that @WileyCEO be stripped of his MBE.

Grime artist Wiley has been dropped by his management company over accusations of anti-Semitism.The musician’s manager John Woolf said A-List Management had “cut all ties” with the musician following a series of social media posts made on accounts belonging to him on Friday.The Campaign Against Antisemitism has asked police to investigate the content and called for Wiley’s accounts to be shut down “to prevent further outpouring of anti-Jewish venom”.Mr Woolf, who is Jewish, wrote on Twitter on Saturday morning: “Following Wileys anti semitic tweets today we at @A_ListMGMT have cut all ties with him. There is no place in society for antisemitism.”He had earlier said he did not support or condone what Wiley posted but that he would speak to him privately and “help educate him”.Following Wileys anti semitic tweets today we at @A_ListMGMT have cut all ties with him. There is no place in society for antisemitism.— John Woolf (@Jrwoolfw) July 24, 2020One post on an unverified Twitter account in Wiley’s name, which Mr Woolf confirmed to the PA news agency belongs to the star, read: “I would challenge the whole world of Jewish community on my own I am not scared I can handle them.”The musician has since been given a temporary ban from Twitter. Wiley posted a screenshot on Instagram on Saturday morning, showing he had been given a temporary Twitter ban but will be allowed back into his account later this morning.However, the social media platform has been accused of “ignoring anti-semitism” because his tweets are still visible 12 hours after they were first posted.Wiley, known as the Godfather of Grime and whose real name is Richard Cowie, received an MBE for services to music in 2018.Mr Woolf earlier said in the 12 years in which he had worked with Wiley he “can say that he is not anti-Semitic”.The manager wrote on Twitter that he does not “support or condone what Wiley has said today online in anyway shape or form”.He added: “We are going to help educate him here on this.”In a statement issued on Friday, a spokesperson for the Campaign Against Antisemitism said: “Our Crime Unit has reported this matter to the Metropolitan Police Service as we consider that Wiley has committed the offence of incitement to racial hatred, which can carry a substantial prison sentence.“We have additionally asked Twitter and Facebook, which owns Instagram, to close down his accounts which have hundreds of thousands of followers, to prevent further outpouring of anti-Jewish venom.”They added that they would be contacting the Cabinet Office to ask that Wiley’s MBE is revoked.
