Maybe we can tie this altogether with an even more fantastic story: MBS infects Bezos phone, grabs the dick pics etc and then routes them to Fredo, who then sells them to the Enquirer. Seems like an unnecessary, baroque bank shot but... — PolitiTweet.org

"A single photograph is texted to Mr. Bezos from the Crown Prince’s WhatsApp account, along with a sardonic caption. It is an image of a woman resembling the woman with whom Bezos is having an affair, months before the Bezos affair was known publicly." https://t.co/3gpJPkDFjT — PolitiTweet.org

@readDanwrite @YahooFinance For argument’s sake, let’s say Netflix *is* intentionally presenting misleading numbers. What’s the benefit for them? They aren’t selling ads so they can’t be hoodwinking advertisers. And Wall Street cares about subs, cash flow. So... — PolitiTweet.org

Wait. There’s *also* a Sundance angle to the Bezos/MBS/Khashoggi/Enquirer/Dickpick/Trump/Amazon story? And that movie happens to debut two days after today’s UN report on the same story? https://t.co/x9eKdFe5Dt https://t.co/kvQgOSR8zi — PolitiTweet.org

@ClaraJeffery eh. everyone here who thinks about page views, streams etc gets whipped up about this (with good reason. see: facebook's moving metrics). but netflix only cares about subscriber numbers, so they can say a view is an eggplant one day and an apple another. — PolitiTweet.org

I've decided to embrace Netflix's viewing metrics for my writing. Simply glancing at a headline counts as reading the story, right?

You guys (on Twitter) really seem to hate Netflix autoplay. Anyway: Netflix says no, autoplay doesn't count in the new viewing metric. You have to "chose to watch", which is a phrase they now use all the time. — PolitiTweet.org

Alex Fitzpatrick @AlexJamesFitz

@pkafka for that metric, does Netflix count autoplay views that happen while you're surfing for something to watch?

But! If you do it in the U.S. - where you can actually see the Mandalorian — it's much closer. So we made that chart, too: https://t.co/jkZ5rvIJWv — PolitiTweet.org

And, also: *Netflix thinks you guys *love* the Witcher. 76mm views/month. *Netflix leaning into its new "2 minutes = a view" metric, so get used to it. *Netflix acknowledges this gooses its "view" numbers by 35%. — PolitiTweet.org

Thoughts on Netflix Q4: *1st time I've seen Reed Hastings blame competition for low #s (in this case, the Disney and Apple launches). *Those low #s were in the U.S., where Netflix growth is already slowing to a crawl. *Netflix blew away its international #s, where Disney isn't. — PolitiTweet.org
