1. No one has researched whether Twitter causes risky behavior, so it’s not possible to conclude that YOLO has actually contributed to risk-taking, said anthropologist Jordan Kraemer, who recently earned her doctorate from the University of California, Irvine.

    (Other best graf: “Eventually, Twitter users started reminding the YOLO crowd that they didn’t have horcruxes, the soul fragments that Voldemort thought would make him immortal in the Harry Potter series. About 304,000 tweets contained both the terms YOLO and horcruxes.”)

     
  2. speaking of yolo (sorry)

    how is this story even possible? (also: a year, eh?)

    Won’t somebody show Yolo County a little social media love?

    The county government’s communications people have had a Facebook account up and running for a year now, but so far it has just 256 “likes” as of Wednesday.
