President Donald Trump’s Twitter could be especially active during his quarantine for coronavirus

The tweet quickly appeared to become his most shared ever, racking up more than 887,000 retweets and 1.6 million likes by late Friday afternoon, according to social media analytics company Tweet Binder and researchers.

“The fact that Donald Trump broke the info on Twitter indicates that this is his mode of choice for communicating with the American people about the most serious things,” said Samuel Woolley, a professor and director of a propaganda research team at the University of Texas at Austin.

Trump has one of the most popular Twitter accounts in the world, with 86.6 million followers. He uses the site to broadcast his thoughts on issues, promote his campaign for presidency and attack his critics. Even as Twitter invoked Trump’s rage earlier this year by slapping fact checks and labels on his tweets, Trump kept tweeting multiple times each day.

That’s unlikely to stop during his quarantine, especially

Some former Triller employees are wary of monthly active user count

  • Short-form-video app Triller, a TikTok rival, touted massive user growth last year that some former employees believe was inflated.
  • When Triller announced a fundraise in October 2019, it said it had grown 500% organically year over year to 13 million monthly active users.
  • Six former Triller employees said 13 million MAUs was more than five times what they were seeing on some internal metrics. One provided a screenshot that showed closer to 2 million MAUs.
  • In August, Triller threatened to sue a third-party app analytics company, Apptopia, for providing estimates of Triller’s app downloads that contradicted the company’s publicly reported numbers. 
  • Triller CEO Mike Lu said the former employees were “disseminating inaccurate information” to Business Insider. “We can validate each and every one of our 239M plus [users].”

Automotive Active Safety System Market Size will Grow Profitably in the Near Future 2020-2027

The MarketWatch News Department was not involved in the creation of this content.

Sep 30, 2020 (Profound via COMTEX) —
The global Automotive Active Safety System market garnered revenue around USD XX Billion in 2019 and projected to reach USD XX Billion in 2027, with at a compound annual growth rate of 11% throughout the estimate period from 2020 to 2027.

Automotive active safety systems are developed to increase vehicle safety and enhance the driving experience. They are a combination of certain systems that alert the driver to potential problems. Active safety features include automated lighting, adaptive cruise control, automate braking, incorporate traffic warnings, connect to smartphones, alert the driver to other cars or dangers, keep the driver in the correct lane, or show what is in blind spots. The future automotive technology is increasing the role of collision avoidance and mitigating the risk of an accident

Nanoparticles with synthetic DNA can control release of active agents — ScienceDaily

Medications often have unwanted side-effects. One reason is that they reach not only the unhealthy cells for which they are intended, but also reach and have an impact on healthy cells. Researchers at the Technical University of Munich (TUM), working together with the KTH Royal Institute of Technology in Stockholm, have developed a stable nano-carrier for medications. A special mechanism makes sure the drugs are only released in diseased cells.

The human body is made up of billions of cells. In the case of cancer, the genome of several of these cells is changed pathologically so that the cells divide in an uncontrolled manner. The cause of virus infections is also found within the affected cells. During chemotherapy for example, drugs are used to try to destroy these cells. However, the therapy impacts the entire body, damaging healthy cells as well and resulting in side effects which are sometimes quite

Tech Ecosystem Playing More Active Role to Combat Virus

As the novel coronavirus resurges in Iran, local knowledge-based firms and tech companies raised the bar in the battle against Covid-19.
Vice President for Science and Technology Sorena Sattari, speaking at a meeting in West Azarbaijan Province early this week, acknowledged the latest achievements by domestic tech teams and startups, IRNA reported.
“The coronavirus outbreak in Iran has helped prepare the ground for the greater participation of tech ecosystem, especially in the medical and healthcare fields,” he said.
“Iranian knowledge-based companies and tech teams have successfully produced medicinal and heal-protective items required to control the disease.”
Sattari noted that currently, six knowledge-based companies are specifically working on Covid-19 vaccine, three of which are showing promising results. 
He added that since the virus started spreading in the country in mid-February, laboratory and clinical works for developing medicine and vaccine began. 
According to Majid Jazani, one of the pharmacists working on Covid-19

As the COVID-19 pandemic rages on, researchers are working overtime to develop vaccines and therapies to thwart SARS-CoV-2, the virus responsible for the disease Many efforts focus on the coronavirus spike protein, which binds the angiotensin-converting enzyme 2 (ACE2) on human cells to allow viral entry. Now, researchers reporting in ACS Central Science have uncovered an active role for glycans—sugar molecules that can decorate proteins—in this process, suggesting targets for vaccines and therapies.


Before the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein can interact with ACE2 on a human cell, it changes shape to expose its receptor binding domain (RBD), the part of the protein that interacts with ACE2. Like many viral proteins, the SARS-CoV-2 spike protein has a thick coat
