Twitter is collaborating with WAM! (Women Action and Media), which will report harassment of women on Twitter. They fill out a form, send it to Twitter, then monitor Twitter’s reaction. Why isn't Twitter doing more itself.  Plus, cold weather will sweep down from the arctic this weekend and freeze the northern states of the US. The losers? People whose fuel bills will go through the roof. The winners? Weather websites, which are seeing fierce amounts of traffic by polar vortex-obsessed Americans.
