A Viral Twitter Thread Mocking Unrealistic Ads Poses the Question: What Do Women Do in the Bathtub?

A sarcastic Twitter thread has gone viral after a user posted a series of advertisements for bathtub trays showing women in the tub with extravagant food and drink spreads and an unnecessary number of electronic devices.

The thread started with a post showing a woman smiling in the bath while sipping a latte with a heart swirled into the foam, while a glass of red wine waits on the tray in front of her.

Instagram Will Start Locking Old Usernames For 14 Days

Instagram is planning to rollout a new feature that locks a username for 14 days after a user decided to change it. This could be the end of username grabber bots.

We have all considered changing our Instagram username at some point. Whether it was a life change, a move to a new city or simply a decision to do something different with an account. Changing it is easy. But, more often than not, this would be a one-way decision, as your old username could soon be taken by someone else.

How new fashion talent is being discovered via Instagram

Looking for a fashion brand that everyone isn’t wearing yet? Head to Instagram. An incubator for emerging talent, Vogue speaks to a buyer, stylist, branding expert and designer about discovering the next big thing via the feed.

New LinkedIn Messenger Tools Make It Easier To Set Up Meetings

LinkedIn announced a few new features in LinkedIn Messenger to make it as easy as possible for members to set up meetings.

Even in this digital age – where working and communicating remotely is the norm – face to face meetings are not only pleasant but also necessary. Whether it’s to meet in person to iron out the details of a new partnership, look over a project together, or just to have a cup of coffee together, we all need some β€œface time” from time to time.
