Tweekender: Mario Balotelli’s dog deserves her own Twitter account
Game of Thrones, Diplo, and Rupert Murdoch all made a splash this week
With hundreds of millions of tweets per day, it’s impossible to follow everything happening on Twitter. Every Friday, the Daily Dot rounds up notable Twitter news and stories from the past week—in 140 characters or fewer.
Twitter now has a Google Glass app, and we can’t wait to see all the great first-person photos that could’ve been taken with a GoPro.
Company CEO Dick Costolo stepped down as a director of Twitter’s U.K. arm.
Sky News’s account was not hacked, according to one report. Rather, a recovery test message reading “Colin was here” was accidentally posted.
Kobe Bryant entertained fan suggestions for a new tattoo.
One of the Jonas brothers is obsessed with the game Candy Crush Saga.
Candy crush thank you for consuming all my thoughts

Here’s a look at which Game of Thrones characters are most popular on Twitter. Spoiler: everyone hates Joffrey.
Yahoo is adding newsworthy tweets to the news feed on its homepage.
A woman pleaded innocence in her libel trial after tweeting about a British lord who was wrongly linked to sexual abuse.
Diplo apologized if he “made anyone sad” with his tweeted review of the new Daft Punk album.
Facebook may well take heed of Rupert Murdoch’s words. After all, he used to own “crappy MySpace.”
Look out Facebook! Hours spent participating per member dropping seriously. First really bad sign as seen by crappy MySpace years ago.

The week’s notable new users: Joss Whedon was perhaps the highest-profile debutant this week. Also new are soccer players Bastian Schweinsteiger (who quickly switched his handle from the terrible @BSchwe1nste1ger to @BSchweinsteiger) and Mario Balotelli, who is never, ever boring.
Photo of the week: Balotelli’s got the hang of this Twitter thing right quick. Here’s an adorable photo of him and his “miss.” (@FinallyMario)
