Twitter shut down their old API last Monday. They're forcing everyone to update to API v1.1, which is what I spent a good amount of time 2 weeks ago working on to update our projects.
I read some time ago they were planning that switch, but haven't kept up since then. When Blue mentioned the feed outage, I remembered again, so I'll have a look at updating to the new API.

Wait, wait, wait! Why should we want Americans to watch football? Next we'll expect them to drink real beer, perhaps even wine and be generally sophisticated? Not worth the trouble!

I'm not sure why you're associating football with sophistication.

Those ASMR videos do not trigger the sensation for me.
Rhythmic walking or humming usually sets it off and I can choose to let it progress or break it off by making a change in rhythim, or in thought.

I don't think the creator of that image has read the books.

Still, you can't deny they nailed it for the Xbone.

Also, I like this one:

Does looking at animated gifs of soccer(football) players blatantly faking injuries like a drama actor count as watching?
