Twitter Working on a "Safety" Mode, Firefox Beefs Up Cookie Security, John Deere - Right to Not Repair, Good News for Coffe (Huh?)

Today we're covering a few interesting tidbits from the news world. First up - Twitter is working on a new safety feature that stops harassment through their platform. Then we dig into Firefox and how it's adjusted the way it handles cookies (data saved from websites) and how that impacts your security. After that, we're looking at John Deere and their relapse on a repair agreement they came to in 2018. Finally, coffee is good for you again? We're not doctors, we don't know this stuff, I found a study and it's interesting - please don't drink [more] coffee because of this!
