Report: “Crooked Hillary” emoji refusal kept Twitter out of Trump’s tech...

Pictured are Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos, Alphabet CEO Larry Page, and Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg alongside Trump and Vice-President-Elect Mike Pence.Getty Images | Drew Angerer reader comments 65 Share this story President-elect Donald Trump held a much-publicized meeting with prominent Silicon Valley tech leaders today, including Apple CEO Tim Cook, Alphabet CEO Larry Page, Tesla CEO Elon Musk, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella, and others. Notably absent from that list is Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey or any other personnel from the social media company, despite the fact that Trump has used his Twitter account as one of his primary communication channels with the public throughout his campaign and in the weeks since the election. The explanation, according to a source speaking to Politico, may be vindictive—the source alleges that the Trump team didn't invite Twitter because the social networking service refused to implement a custom "#CrookedHillary" emoji created by the campaign.

Trump used this epithet to refer to Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton throughout the campaign, an approach he also took with Republican primary challengers like Senators Ted Cruz ("Lyin' Ted") and Marco Rubio ("Little Marco"). Enlarge / The original "#CrookedHillary" emoji, according to Trump's digital advertising director. Gary Coby For its part, the Trump camp claims that Twitter was excluded from the meeting because of its size—the company's market cap is about $13.85 billion, and the smallest company represented was Tesla (market cap $31.92 billion). While the Unicode Consortium is primarily responsible for creating the emoji that most people use day-to-day, platforms like Twitter are free to create their own.

Twitter's specific custom emoji are called "hashflags," and they're used to automatically display custom emoji after specific hashtags on Twitter's site and in first-party apps. To date, the majority of these "hashflags" have been broadly apolitical and used mostly for brands (#FindingDory, #ShareACoke) or major events (#Wimbledon, #PopeInUS).

At their most political, they've been used to represent broad movements (#Pride2015, #LoveIsLove) or particular elections (#USElections2016), but they've never been used to refer to specific candidates.

Twitter has created many of these emoji of its own volition, though major companies have also paid to have them created for use in ad campaigns. A November 18 Medium post from the Trump campaign's digital advertising director Gary Coby at least confirms that conversations took place between Twitter and the Trump campaign about a #CrookedHillary emoji, among others.

Cole alleges that he had multiple conversations with Twitter's legal and sales teams, but that Dorsey himself was ultimately responsible for canceling the Trump team's proposed emoji deal. We've contacted Twitter for comment and will update if we receive a response.

Mozilla Debuts Firefox Focus Browser for IOS Privacy

Mozilla has released a new mobile browser at the same time it's desktop browser for Windows and Linux get patches for 27 security vulnerabilities. There's a new web browser in the Apple AppStore today as Mozilla's Firefox Focus makes its debut as a privacy-focused approach to mobile web browsing. The new browser follows multiple Mozilla efforts in recent years to improve security for both mobile and desktop users and debuts just two days after Firefox 50 for desktop was released.In December 2015, Mozilla released its Focus by Firefox content blocker for Apple's IOS. With Focus by Firefox, Mozilla brought the Tracking Protection privacy feature that first debuted in Firefox 42, to IOS users."Focus by Firefox was our first content blocker that blocks certain types of content in the Safari browser," Nick Nguyen, VP of Firefox Product at Mozilla told eWEEK. "The Firefox Focus Browser is a separate browser with content blocking built-in and turned on by default."The privacy protection that the Firefox Focus browser provides includes blocking various forms of tracking technologies including cookies, that can be used by websites for advertising and analytics. While the Firefox Focus browser benefits from the Tracking Protection innovations that Mozilla has built on the desktop, the core rendering engine is different. Since Mozilla first began, it has used its own Gecko engine to power browsers. Nguyen commented that due to Apple’s restrictions, all browsers on iOS, including Firefox Focus, are based on WebKit. The Firefox Focus browser is now an IOS-only product. Nguyen noted that the private browsing mode in Firefox for Android, already includes include tracking protection.The idea for having a privacy focused browser is not a new one at this point in time. Former Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich now leads a rival browser effort called Brave, that also provides protections for users from tracking, as well as ad-blocking capabilities. Nguyen only had positive things to say about Brave."We are excited about the potential of the Brave browser," Nguyen said. "The more open source innovation that exist in this space, the more users are served and the more vibrant the open web becomes."The Firefox Focus browser release comes two days after Mozilla released Firefox 50 on November 15 for desktop and android users. Nguyen said that since Firefox Focus is a separate application, it is not tied to the Firefox for Android and Desktop release schedule. Firefox 50 The Firefox 50 release includes a number of incremental feature updates as well as security fixes. In terms of features, Firefox 50 now integrates is own built-in set of emoji for operating systems without native emoji fonts, such Windows 8.0 and earlier versions as well as Linux.From a security standpoint Firefox 50, Mozilla is patching for 27 security vulnerabilities of which only three as rated as having critical impact. Two of the critical impact issues (CVE-5290 and CVE-2016-5289) are memory safety vulnerabilities. The other critical vulnerability is CVE-2016-5296 and is identified by Mozilla as a heap buffer-overflow issue.Among the high impact flaws fixed in Firefox 50 is in an interesting update risk related to Mozilla's software updater."The Mozilla Updater can be made to choose an arbitrary target working directory for output files resulting from the update process," Mozilla warns in its advisory for CVE-2016-5294Sean Michael Kerner is a senior editor at eWEEK and InternetNews.com.

Pokémon GO or No Go? Mobile Games May Pose More Risks...

Many mobile games can access sensitive functions and data on employer-issued devices including SMS, social networking, location services & tracking and calendar accessMaidenhead, U.K. – Oct. 18, 2016 – Augmented reality, fueled most recently by the Pokémon GO sensation, and virtual reality gaming opportunities are beginning to really open up on mobile platforms. According to IDC, the number of smartphone and tablet gamers should increase to more than 1.9 billion in 2020. Millions of mobile device users are predicted to play these types of games within a few years, and the workplace is not immune. According to a new report, “It’s Not All Fun and Games: A BYOD Reality Check for Companies”, many of these popular apps could violate corporate risk policies. “Some employees care about data security and privacy when they curate the apps they download to their mobile phones, but many don’t,” said Maureen Polte, Vice President of Product Management at Flexera Software. “When those phones are Bring Your Own Device, poor employee choices suddenly impact corporate risk. That is why Application Readiness automation – commonly used by companies to test their enterprise applications – must be extended to mobile apps, so CIOs can have a firm understanding of which ones violate their BYOD policies.” The report found that of the almost 60 popular Apple iOS mobile games tested[1]: 73 percent, including Angry Birds, AR Defender 2, Bejeweled Classic, Bubble Shooter, Clash of Clans, Clash Royale, Color Switch, Game of War, Mobile Strike, Pokémon GO and Slither, support Location Services & Tracking. 68 percent, including Angry Birds, Bejeweled Classic, Bubble Shooter, Clash of Clans, Clash Royale, Color Switch, Game of War, Mobile Strike and Slither, support Social Networking. 58 percent, including Angry Birds, Bejeweled Classic, Bubble Shooter, Clash of Clans, Clash Royale, Color Switch and Slither, support Calendar Access. 54 percent, including Angry Birds, AR Defender 2, Bejeweled Classic, Bubble Shooter, Color Switch and Slither, support SMS. “Unfortunately, not all mobile app developers are trustworthy,” added Polte. “CIOs must have a centralised, automated and repeatable Application Readiness process to identify and test those apps to determine what they do, and whether they comply or collide with an organisation’s BYOD policies. To compile the report, Flexera Software identified almost 60 widely used gaming applications, representing a small sampling of those that can be found in the Apple App Store and that could easily be downloaded by employees to a corporate-issued or BYOD device. These apps were tested using AdminStudio Mac® and Mobile, an Application Readiness solution that helps organisations identify, manage, track and report on mobile apps, simplify mobile application management, reduce mobile app risk, and address the rapidly growing demand for mobile apps in the enterprise. # # # [1]The apps tested were: 100 Balls, Angry Birds, Angry Birds Rio, AR Defender 2, Baby Twins – Terrible Two, Batman: Arkham Underworld, Bejeweled Classic, Bubble Shooter, Buddyman Run, Candy Crush, Clash of Clans, Clash of Kings, Clash Royale, Color Switch, Cookie Jam, Crossy Road, CSR Racing 2, Despicable Me: Minion Rush, Dictator: Emergence, Diner Dash, Disney Emoji Blitz, Doodle Jump Free, Drop Out, Eggs, Inc., Episode – Choose Your Story, Farm Heroes, Farm Heroes Saga, FIFA 16 Ultimate Team, Game of War, Hand of God, Happy Wheels, Harvest Swap, Hay Day, Hungry Shark Evolution, Ingress, Jetpack Joyride, Kendall and Kylie, Micro Machines, Mobile Strike, Mr Jump, NBA Live Mobile, PartyPoker, Piano Tiles, Pokémon GO, Quizduell, Rolling Sky, Slither.io, Snappy Bird: New Season, Soccer Stars, Stack, Steps, Subway Surfers, Talking Tom Gold Run, Temple Run, Temple Run 2, The Sims FreePlay, Walking Dead, Words with Friends and Zynga Poker Classic – Texas Holdem.
