🍗 The world of lab-grown meat can’t stop surprising us with more news.
Just last week, The Weekly Snack had been reporting on the first ever authorizations being granted for sale of cultivated chicken in the USA.
This week we’ve got even more juicy news from the land of cell-cultured chicken.
Our favourite Chef Dominique Crenn will be the first Chef to serve lab-grown chicken on its menu in the USA.
The new dish, to be served at Bar Crenn is built around Upside Food's chicken, which is coated in a tempura batter infused with Recado Negro, a charred chile paste from Mexico’s Yucatan region. The chicken is then fried, lightly drizzled with a burnt chili aioli, and garnished with edible flowers and greens from Crenn’s Bleu Belle Farm.
🌶️ Sriracha sauce is a hot commodity.
Social Media News Digest
🧵 Thread, Thread, Thread, Thread, Thread!
Meta had officially unleashed its Twitter Killer app, called (as you might have already realized) Threads.
Here’re the top 5 things you need to know about Threads:
As a comparison, ChatGPT (the fastest growing app) managed to gain 100m users in 2 months.
At this rate Threads will easily surpass Twitter in a month with its 353.8m active users.
Threads is available in 100+ countries, but not in Europe over the data concerns.
There will be no ads on Threads for at least a year.
Threads is run by Instagram app, and therefore, one cannot delete their Threads account once created, unless one wants to also delete their Instagram account, and therefore, here’s why the mysterious reason why Threads got such a traction so fast.
So no backsies, at least for now.
👩⚖️ Meanwhile, Twitter is threatening to sue Meta over Threads… of course…
🙈 Naturally, Twitter introduces limits on how many Tweets could be read by TwitterBlue and regular Twitter users.
🤓 YouTube tests AI-generated quizzes on the educational content to test users knowledge of the content they’ve just watched.
🔗 YouTube tests hyperlinked keywords in video comments to boost engagement and content discovery.
3️⃣ Now you can add up to three collaborators on Instagram post or Reel.
