Streisand Effect

March 3, 2020

What do Barbra, Bloomberg, cows & combustible cell phones have in common? They all come up in conversations about The Streisand Effect, which we're discussing today with our tech expert Jake Palanker! The Streisand Effect is the bear you poke when daring to instruct the internet. We'll talk about the psychological underpinnings and various instances of this occurrence, some of which are global in nature, as is the case with political repercussions under authoritarian regimes. Hitting closer to home we’re exploring how a hotel attempted to stifle bad Yelp reviews, The Bloomberg Meme effort and a Twitter cow who is more popular than Devin Nunes. Plus, #SuperTuesday is what’s Twitter Trending.
