Episode Description 
A Stanford study has found that you would think harder about saving for retirement if you could see just what you'd look like when you are older. If you just noticed your Instagram photos started looking weird on Twitter, you weren't alone. It's not a software glitch -- it was more like "shot's [being] fired" between the two social media giants according to Slate technology blogger Will Oremus.
