If this was forwarded to you, <a href="http://newsletter.businessinsider.com/join/4np/10-things-in-tech"><strong>sign up here</strong></a>.</p><p>Let's get started.</p><p><strong>1. Amazon "ambassadors" defended the firm on Twitter as the company battled its first union vote. </strong>Several of the accounts started in March 2021 and <a href="https://www.businessinsider.com/amazon-fighting-unions-with-employees-on-twitter-2021-3">didn't become active until late in the month</a>just as Amazon began publicly pushing back on unionization at its Bessemer, Alabama fulfillment center.<strong><br></strong></p><p><strong>2. An unlikely figure helped WeWork secure its SPAC merger. </strong>Reuters reported that WeWork's ousted CEO Adam Neumann helped the company cinch a deal with BowX Acquisition Corp. <a href="https://www.businessinsider.com/wework-adam-neumann-spac-merger-bowx-softbank-public-ubs-2021-3">Here's what we know about his role.</a></p><p><strong>3. Silicon Valley can be toxic for healthcare startups. </strong>While other startups can "move fast and break things," healthcare founders who move too fast face enormous consequences when their actions affect patients. Those that do take shortcuts risk failure. <a href="https://www.businessinsider.com/silicon-valley-healthcare-startups-failure-hard-to-build-2021-3"><strong>An inside look at how Silicon Valley's growth-hack mindset dooms healthcare startups.</strong></a></p><p><strong>4. Not sure what an NFT is, but feel like it's too late to ask'</strong> We understand. Luckily, Saturday Night Live took on the task of explaining the multi-million dollar crypto phenomenon in an Eminem parody. <a href="https://www.businessinsider.com/saturday-night-live-crypto-art-nft-nonfungible-token-skit-2021-3">Watch the skit here.</a></p><p><strong>5. If you've noticed particularly loud commercials lately, you're not alone. </strong>Complaints are on the rise &nbsp;especially with streaming services. And while there's a law meant to control commercials, the FCC hasn't enforced it in the better part of a decade. <a href="https://www.businessinsider.com/why-commercials-are-so-loud-streaming-tv-calm-act-2021-3">Why commercials are bursting your eardrums.</a></p><p><strong>6. Snap-backed Volv bills itself as "TikTok for news."</strong> The app creates news stories, averaging at around 70 words, which users can read in less than nine seconds. <a href="https://www.businessinsider.com/volv-9-second-news-stories-tik-tok-snap-mark-cuban-2021-3">Take a look at the news app aimed at millennials.</a>&nbsp;</p><p><strong>7. A rare video shows robots jumping and dancing inside one of America's leading robotics firms. </strong>"60 Minutes" got an inside look at the Boston Dynamics' headquarters, where robots like Spot and Atlas, the company's dog-like and humanoid robots, leap and dance. <a href="https://www.businessinsider.com/video-robots-jumping-and-dancing-inside-boston-dynamics-2021-3">See the video here.</a></p><p><strong>8. Facebook is monopolizing the global supply of GIFs. </strong>UK regulators have accused the tech giant of monopolizing the world's GIFs through its purchase of Giphy. <a href="https://www.businessinsider.com/monopoly-data-access-twitter-snapchat-tiktok-control-lawsuit-antitrust-legal-2021-3">Here's how Facebook's $300-400 million purchase could be stifling competition.</a></p><p><strong>9. SPACs are ruining a key part of Silicon Valley's magic formula for innovationletting crappy startups fail.</strong> As special-purpose acquisition companies boom, they're taking low-quality startup ideas public, rather than letting them die. <a href="https://www.businessinsider.com/spac-craze-could-prop-up-troubled-startups-in-hunt-for-deals-2021-3"><strong>We investigated how the SPAC craze affects Silicon Valley's startup ecosystem, where failure is considered vital.</strong></a></p><p><strong>10.
