(Pun intended) These videos are free for all to see and they are not suitable for kids, some are horrific with millions of views. So, it's about time that YouTube toughens rules to protect families and kids.

People are asking -  Why do we have 280 Characters on Twitter ?  I for one liked that Twitter had a restriction to 140 characters.  It has always meant you can click to see more if you want to but you could scroll through quickly to see if there was anything you wanted to read. So, finally, Twitters #280characters is here It seems everyone is either very angry or very hyper and silly - there are tweets just full of emojis or lots of one word or just nonsense.
