Hosted by

The power of the internet is undeniable: A few tweets can turn a random bag boy into an instant celebrity or destroy a politician’s career. And when brand-names and celebrities try to harness that power, they run the risk of an epic backfire. The latest person to learn that painful lesson is none other than Bill Cosby. We hear about that, how Kim Kardashian is raking in tens of billions of dollars with a free app, and other news from the World Wide Web.
