Late Wednesday night, Pornhub announced that PayPal is no longer supporting payments for Pornhub—a decision that will impact thousands of performers using the site as a source of income.https://www.vice.com/en_us/article/d3abgv/paypal-pulls-out-of-pornhub-payments
Most visitors to Pornhub likely think of it as a website that simply provides access to an endless supply of free porn, but Pornhub also allows performers to upload, sell, and otherwise monetize videos they make themselves. Performers who used PayPal to get paid for this work now have to switch to a different payment method.
"We are all devastated by PayPal's decision to stop payouts to over a hundred thousand performers who rely on them for their livelihoods," the company said on its blog. It then directed models to set up a new payment method, with instructions on how PayPal users can transfer pending payments.

Twitter suspended dozens of accounts critical of the Egyptian president without cause during rare anti-government demonstrations last month, according to new research.https://www.buzzfeednews.com/article/meghara/twitter-egypt-protests-accounts-suspended
Wael Eskandar, an Egyptian researcher specializing in digital rights, found that Twitter had suspended accounts that tweeted words in Arabic like “whore” and “ass-kisser.”
He contacted nearly 60 accounts tweeting in Arabic — primarily those belonging to Egyptians but including Egyptian Americans and others in the diaspora — who said their accounts were temporarily suspended around the time of the protests last month. Based on screenshots they shared with him, Eskandar determined about 30 had been suspended without cause.
Twitter said the accounts had been suspended in error but did not elaborate.
In what we are sure will be "hair-on-fire" screamed about as 'tyrannical-book-burning', #President Trump has reportedly planning to instruct federal agencies to not #renew their #subscriptions to the #NewYorkTimes and the #WashingtonPost.
As The #WallStreetJournal reports, #WhiteHouse press secretary #Stephanie #Grisham said in an email Thursday:“Not renewing subscriptions across all federal agencies will be a significant #cost saving - hundreds of thousands of #taxpayer dollars will be saved."
The decision comes days after the president #cancelled the White House’s print subscriptions to the #Post and the #Times after expressing #frustration with their coverage.
“We don’t even want it in the White House anymore,” Mr. Trump said of the Times during an #interview with #FoxNews host #Sean #Hannity that aired Monday night.
“We’re going to probably #terminate that and the Washington Post. They’re #fake.”
Additionally, The Journal reports that a White House official confirmed that print editions of the Times and the Post weren’t among the #newspapers delivered to the White House on Thursday.
And while #liberals use "fact checkers" to force #advertisers to #boycott " #rightwing" #websites/newspapers, President Trump's response is even cleaner: "your subscription has been #terminated."
