Twitter is testing a new reply system that lets users choose who can and can't reply to them, students are failing AP tests due to a new, allegedly better image format, and a brief look at the potential future of the theater.

First, Jason strikes up a conversation about Twitter's new reply system — some users are now able to limit who can reply to a given tweet.

Then, Mikah applauds Netflix's latest announcement wherein the company says it will remove unused Netflix accounts — no need to pay for a subscription you aren't using.

Finally, freelance writer Eric Ravenscraft pops in to talk about his article in OneZero regarding the future of movie theaters and our movie-watching experiences.
