Have you always wanted one of those blue checkmarks on your Twitter account? Soon you too may be able to get verified, according to Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey.
In 2009 when the verification process first started, the marks were given out to politicians, celebrities, journalists, and “accounts of public interest.” Last year, Twitter stopped verifying users because numerous divisive individuals were verified, which caused an uproar online. But soon, Twitter will verify users again, and there are plans to include everyone.
Fitbit is introducing its first fitness band dedicated for kids ages eight and up.
The Fitbit Ace is basically an adapted version of the Fitbit Alta, with a smaller, adjustable band to fit tinier wrists and a revised software to remove data that may not be as relevant to younger users, such as calories burned. It offers step counting, sleep tracking and move reminders (which can be muted during the school day).
Parents will be required to make an account for children aged 12 and under to get them started on the Fitbit Ace.Parents can add to the ace to a family account on their own mobile device to track their kids’ activity.
There is now a Fitbit for everyone in your family! Get healthy and fit together with our new smartwatch, our first kid’s activity tracker and more: https://t.co/5ut3ldRZMO #FitbitForAll pic.twitter.com/TLNxWZsnGH
