CrunchWeek: The Big Instagram Backlash, Cash For Facebook Messages, Twitter Sprucing Up For An IPO

There was certainly no pre-holiday slump this year when it came to tech news, so we had a lot to talk about in the latest CrunchWeek, that extra special time of the week when a few of us gather in front of the TechCrunch TV cameras and dig into a few of the most interesting stories of the past few days.

In this holiday party hangover edition (hence all of us clutching caffeinated beverages), Leena Rao, Ryan Lawler and I discuss Instagram’s proposed changes to its terms of service and privacy policy (and its backpedal after a major backlash from users), Facebook’s latest money-making experiment in charging money to send priority messages, Twitter’s sprucing up the executive suite for a future IPO, and how we’ve all been enjoying the Silicon Valley holiday season.
