Week 88 News Roundup – ISP Privacy, Twitter Changes, Streaming Music Numbers

This is the second of our new News Roundup episodes, which will usually appear on Fridays and discuss several of the week’s top tech news stories. This week, we cover:

  • Congressional action to roll back privacy regulations for ISPs, which has been covered in somewhat hyperbolic fashion
  • Three tweaks to Twitter features, including a new model for @-replies, DM protections, and an avatar change
  • New RIAA numbers on the size of the US music market in 2016, and especially the contribution of streaming.

As always, you’ll find links to these stories and other things we discussed underneath the SoundCloud player embedded below.

As ever, you can also find the podcast on iTunes, in the Overcast app, or your own favorite podcast app. Here is the RSS feed for the podcast if you want to add it manually to your app of choice.
