Twitter's confusing new change, Palmer Luckey quits FacebookToday's biggest tech stories include Palmer Luckey's departure from Facebook and Uber now letting users edit their pickup location. Plus, Twitter changes its format to remove handles from a tweet's character count.
This is CNet and here are the stories that matter right now. Twitter is giving it's users more room to work with when replying to tweets. Starting now replies won't count user names against the 140 character limit. The new system already has some users complaining from it being too easy to tag a bunch of people in a single tweet. Due to the fact that now it's much harder to untag users as well. Don't be surprised if Twitter edits the feature. Oculus founder, Palmer Luckey, is leaving Facebook, the company has said in a statement. This comes a few months after it was revealed that he donated thousands of dollars to an anti-Hillary Clinton smear group. Luckey has since made few public appearances. Oculus was purchased by Facebook in 2014 for $2 billion. And finally, Uber is letting its users adjust pickup locations, preventing the need to cancel a ride all together. The much-requested feature is live now in the US, Canada, and the UK, and works by hitting the Edit button next to your pickup location.
