Whoever hacked into the “60 Minutes” Twitter account has been having fun in his new sandbox again. The Syrian Electronic Army claimed responsibility for the hacking in a tweet. The group had successfully hacked into NPR’s website earlier this week.

RT @cbsmatt: Update: We’ve suspended the 60 Minutes account while we investigate with Twitter.

Twitter rolls out archive functionality; Users revisit first tweets

http://twitter.com/#!/levie/status/281475075578941440

The Library of Congress has been archiving tweets for a while now, but starting today, Twitter is rolling out the ability for individual users to download a record of their own Twitter activity. Users will be able to relive their witty observations, election predictions, butt tweets and death threats, all the way back to the beginning of Twitter. The big question: will they want to?

i don’t think i want my twitter archive.

— Rosie Gray (@RosieGray) December 19, 2012

I haven’t got Twitter archive, but I am fairly sure I don’t want it. Looking at other people’s first tweets I bet mine is embarrassing.

— Tom Warren (@tomwarren) December 19, 2012

Wait, Twitter has been secretly saving all my tweets to put into a delightful archive! This is too far — I’m quitting.

— MG Siegler (@parislemon) December 19, 2012

The only thing my twitter archive would be good for is remembering the times in life I was riding on a bus.

SCREAMING. WE CAN FINALLY SEE OUR TWITTER ARCHIVE?! SCARED TO KNOW WHAT I’LL FIND.

— Angie [DR] (@angiee5110) December 19, 2012

Just request my twitter archive. Wonder what crap/genius things I was saying when I started here 🙂

— Donovan (@MrOzAtheist) December 19, 2012

Twitter has posted instructions here, but if the option isn’t available for you yet, be patient: word is that the service is being rolled out “slowly” and to English-language users first.

We don’t remember that either. Here’s a taste of what you’ll see once you download your own tweet history.

Here’s my first three tweets, from February 4, 2007. As you can see, I wasn’t very good at it… – twitter.com/TheMatthewKeys…

(I should also clarify I was a radio intern back then)

— Matthew Keys (@TheMatthewKeys) December 19, 2012

So, how anxious are you to revisit your entire tweet history?

Scanning through my complete historic Tweet archive. Hard to believe, looking at them, that I am employed.

NAILED IT! Greg Gutfeld MOCKS the media’s obsession with Trump and Russia in 1 perfect tweet

The media has a problem. Well, the media has LOTS of problems, but their biggest one is the constant screeching and paranoia around Russia. Every time they think they have a ‘gotcha’ story on the president they end up just making themselves look more foolish and desperate.

Greg Gutfeld had the perfect example of the media’s ‘handiwork’:

This Is The Adorable Baby Hippo In Cincinnati That You’ll Want To Be BFFs With

Back in January, zookeepers at the Cincinnati Zoo in Ohio were surprised and very concerned when the baby hippopotamus they were expecting in March was born six weeks premature.

Little Fiona weighed just 29 pounds, and baby hippos are supposed to be between 55 and 120 pounds. Those taking care of her weren’t very confident that she’d survive, but she proved how tough she was when she beat the odds and turned six months old on July 24!

Right after this cutie was born, she received around-the-clock care from zookeepers. People from the Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center even helped put an IV in her when she was dehydrated.

As she got older and stronger, she started learning how to swim (and bite)…

…and her adorable antics made her an absolute star on social media. The zoo’s director, Thane Maynard, is even writing a children’s book about her called “Saving Fiona: Science, Social Media, and the Story of a Baby Hippo.” It will be published on January 22, 2019.
