It appears the woman who opened fire at YouTube headquarters before killing herself was upset over how the platform handled her videos. Police in San Bruno, California, have pinpointed this as a motive, and videos allegedly posted by the shooter before the incident show her accusing the platform of restricting her content.

Her brother had warned police that his sister, in his words, “might do something.” Police talked with Aghdam hours before the attack — and say they didn’t notice anything disturbing.
Starting next week, Facebook will tell people if their information was shared with the data-crunching company.

4. Russia investigation
Special counsel Robert Mueller’s team has taken the unusual step of questioning Russian oligarchs who traveled into the US, stopping at least one and searching his electronic devices when his private jet landed at a New York area airport, according to multiple sources familiar with the inquiry. A second Russian oligarch was stopped during a recent trip to the US, although it is not clear if he was searched, according to a person briefed on the matter.
The approach to Russian oligarchs in recent weeks may reflect that Mueller’s team has already obtained records or documents that it has legal jurisdiction over and can get easily, one source said, and now it’s a “wish list” to see what other information they can obtain from Russians entering the US or through their voluntary cooperation.
