🤦 What has Twitter done now

Twitter introduces new font

Hey Waivly Crew! 🌊 To add to the long list of pointless updates social media platforms have made this month, Twitter have now changed its font, and some users aren't big fans.

Twitter gets a redesign with a new font

On Tuesday Twitter suddenly redesigned its website and app, the biggest changes being a new font, higher-contrast colors, and less visual clutter.

Notice anything different?

Tuesday evening, on the Twitter account, Twitter tweeted, "wait did our font change," right after the update rolled out, and people instantly noticed the difference.

Meet Chrip, Twitter's new typeface

Replacing Twitter's previous font, which they've been using for a long time, is Twitter's first proprietary typeface, Chirp. In January, Twitter revealed the font, claiming it will make tweets easier to read as you scroll through your timeline.

Not everyone likes it

As soon as the update went live, to no surprise, the majority of users were not big fans of the changes, with one user even tweeting, "This new font makes me feel like I'm reading an ancient Greek mythology book for some reason."

11 Bit Studios officially announces Frostpunk 2

Game developers, 11 Bit Studios known for the city-building survival game, Frostpunk have recently announced that they will be developing a sequel game titled Frostpunk 2.

What is the storyline of Frostpunk 2?

The game will be set 30 years after the events of the original game. The sequel will build upon the first Frostpunk game and players will have to establish an oil extraction industry to fuel their city while leading the city's citizens by making choices between being ruthless in order to survive or upholding human rights.

What can players expect from Frostpunk 2?

According to Jakub Stotkalski, Frostpunk 2 co-director, stated in a press release that "players should expect a wide universe of choices, freedom to shape the society and the city however they see fit-and reap the consequences." Players can also expect the sequel to build on the conflicts of Frostpunk between survival, human values, and life amid an apocalyptic blizzard. Currently, Frostpunk 2 does not have a release date yet, but it will be available on Steam, GOG, and Epic Games Store.

What you missed at Samsung Galaxy Unpacked 2021

Earlier this week, as promised, Samsung revealed a whole bunch of new tech to get excited for, some of the most noticeable upcoming products being the Galaxy Watch 4, Galaxy Z Fold 3 and Galaxy Buds 2.

Galaxy Watch 4

To compete with the Apple Watch, Samsung and Google have teamed up to create the new Galaxy Watch 4. It is the first device to include Wear OS 3 and focuses on health-tracking features like measuring measure body fat, water weight, and bone density.

Galaxy Z Fold 3

The newest Galaxy Fold was revealed during the event, and it is much slimmer and lighter than the previous foldable phones from Samsung. If you're the type of person that constantly drops your phone, the Fold 3 uses Gorilla Glass Victus to reinforce the exterior, making it 80% stronger than the Z Fold 2.

Galaxy Buds 2

The Galaxy Buds 2 sound very promising, smaller and lighter than any earphones you've seen from Samsung in the past, and cost £139 ($149), a bit more affordable than Apple AirPods.

Netflix reveals cast for Avatar: The Last Airbender live-action

We now know who will play Aang, Katara, Sokka, and Zuko in their upcoming Avatar: The Last Airbender live-action, and they seem like a good match.

Who is playing Aang? 

12-year-old Gordon Cormier will be playing the Avatar, also known as Aang. Joining him is Kiawentiio as Katara, Ian Ousley as Sokka, and Dallas Liu as Prince Zuko.

Long time coming

Fans have been waiting for The live-action series of Avatar: The Last Airbender for years, even since The Last Airbender live-action movie was released back in 2010. According to rumors, filming will start this Autumn, so don't expect to see it on Netflix any time soon.

Not the first Avatar live-action

In 2010, a live-action movie of Avatar: The Last Airbender came out, and without going on a never-ending rant, it was a total flop. The movie had poor visual effects, which made the bending unbearable to watch, and the acting wasn't up to the standard expected. Hopefully, Netflix's live-action series will make up for it.
