Speaking on the code of conduct for all social networking sites, Keyamo said “The federal government is very anxious, not only Twitter. In fact, but we have also developed a code of conduct for all of them”.

“They have agreed to a code of conduct, that is Twitter and every other platform because we are using the example of Twitter to draw code of conduct for all other social media platforms such as Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and all of them” .

“We decided at the committee level that we don’t want to isolate Twitter and give them some kind of bias treatment different from other social media platforms like Facebook, Instagram and all of that. So, we are developing a code of conduct not for Twitter alone but for the general social media platforms on the responsible social behavior that they must comply with”.
“Code of conduct can be made as bye law under the NBC code because that is broadcast” he said.

Crypto crashes because of black Friday discount

Cryptocurrency prices are tanking this morning, with some of the biggest coins recording double-digit percentage drops as the global Black Friday discount shopping event gets underway and fears over a new Covid “variant of concern” spread. The combined crypto market has dropped under $2.5 trillion, down from a peak of around $3 trillion earlier this month.

24-hour crypto market snapshot
Bitcoin (-7%) $53,793
Ethereum (-10%) $3,959
Avalanche (-18%) $103.12
Cro (-19%) $0.6518

The bitcoin price is this morning off by over 7%, with ethereum down by 10%. Bitcoin is quickly falling towards $50,000 while ethereum has edged below the closely-watched $4,000 level. Bitcoin’s price fall comes amid a sharp dip in its hash rate, a measure of the computing power directed at the bitcoin network. Quantum Economic’s Jason Deane spotted the decline.

Ethereum rivals Binance’s BNB, solana, cardano and polkadot are all down by more than 10% with recent big gainers Crypto.com’s cro and avalanche down by almost 20% since this time yesterday.

Expect a lot of “buy the dip”-style advice from price boosters on Twitter and YouTube today and over the weekend amid claims of a crypto “Black Friday sale.”

It matters because as people’s lives move more online, digital scarcity, smart contracts and online ownership created through bitcoin, other cryptocurrencies, and non-fungible tokens (NFTs) will help form the foundations of the virtual economy. Video games are already embracing tokenization and Facebook’s rebrand under the Meta umbrella has kicked off a wave of interest in how digital assets will fit into the new virtual economy.

23 Year-Old Igbo Girl Becomes Pilot After Dad Said He’ll Jump Off Plane If He Sees Female Pilot.

Meet – Miracle Izuchuwu, 23-year-old Nigerian born Private Pilot, Commercial Pilot (candidate) and Flight Attendant at American Airlines. She recently joined the elite group of 7% of females and 1% of black female Pilots in the world.

He said, and I quote: “if he gets on a plane and sees a woman as the Pilot, he would get off the plane”
