1. Madonna is coming. Confirm plus chop.
Madonna will be performing in Singapore for the very first time! The queen of pop will be bringing her Rebel Heart Tour here for a one-night-only concert, which has been rated R18 for “sexual references”.
Her local fans are elated with the news of confirmation, as there were rumours circulated online about it being cancelled.
Demand for the tickets must be high, but be warned: they do not come cheap. The prices start from $108 and VIP passes cost $1,288, the most expensive concert tickets in Singapore to date.

2. Twitter essays may be coming your way soon
When Twitter announced that it might be introducing 10,000 character tweets on Tuesday, and netizens do not seem too happy about it.
They have taken to the hashtag #Twitter10k to air their views, and many of them disapproved of the new feature. The netizens also argued that #Twitter10k allows for spam and long essays, and are requesting for new features instead.
Many are calling for Twitter to introduce an edit tweet function – which would definitely be useful. Aren’t we all familiar with the many times you find a typo AFTER posting a tweet?
Hopefully these suggestions will be taken into consideration, as they would certainly help in improving user experience.
But one thing’s for sure: with 10,000 characters, arguments will no longer a problem. #onetweetisallittakes
