At least five officials have exited over clashes with the Trump Administration amid mounting concerns of cyber intrusions from Russia and other countries leading up to the Nov. 6 elections.

Last month, Twitter (TWTR) unveiled a sweeping reorganization, in which its leadership is built around disciplines rather than individual products. The reorganization is intended to prepare Twitter for the next decade. Twitter has simplified how its various teams work under the new structure, which it also hopes could inspire more innovation as it strives to be a leader in its industry.

For 85 per cent of smartphone users that have Google's Android mobile operating system, the slew of apps that come pre-installed on the device are often owned by Google. This includes the popular Chrome web browser and Google search engine, meaning users are forced to download competing apps through the Google Play Store if they want to use them.

The first part of that was made clear this week when Brussels antitrust cops whacked the search giant with a 4.3 billion-euro ($5 billion) fine over its bundling of apps on the Android mobile operating system – a decision that might restrict the company’s access to the mobile browsing data that is its lifeblood. While that legislation was created to give consumers better control over how tech companies use their data, it may at the same time have strengthened Google and Facebook’s iron grip on the digital advertising market.
The content producer's share prices surged on Thursday after a pair of positive analyst reports. Here's what they said, and what this Fool thinks about them.
BRUSSELS—Fining Google $5 billion is one thing, making it stick is another. Google parent Alphabet Inc. said within hours Wednesday of the European Union decision that it would appeal the antitrust fine for abusing the dominance of Google’s Android operating system. Alphabet faces an uphill battle with its appeal—but maybe not an insurmountable one, say lawyers and legal scholars, citing a court ruling involving Intel Corp. last year.

“If the Vietnamese government is coercing your companies to aid and abet censorship, this is an issue of concern that needs to be raised diplomatically and at the highest levels,” lawmakers said in the letter, Reuters reported. Facebook and Facebook-owned Instagram said they will more aggressively lock the accounts of users the firms suspect are younger than 13 years old, according to TechCrunch.
