There was a clear theme of the Trump administration's first full day in power, and it wasn't "Make America Great Again." Instead, in both President Trump's address to CIA employees and Press Secretary Sean Spicer's combative conference held with the White House press pool, a theme of an administrative war against the media emerged. SEE ALSO: The media's subtle way of trolling Donald Trump Spicer was not subtle in his comments to the press.

While they are important showings of solidarity in retaliation to the threat of oppression, today's Women's Marches held in cities around the world have also been possibly the greatest display of sign-making skills and cheeky wit in recent memory. It should come as no surprise, then, that one of the world's most treasured actors, Sir Ian McKellen, showed up to London's event with an absolutely top-notch sign that both extolled the fed up message of the day and trolled his good friend, Sir Patrick Stewart.

Leave it to Madonna to sneak a couple of F-bombs onto CNN. Speaking at the Women's March on Washington on Saturday, the iconic singer urged protestors to remember that although "good did not win in this election, good will win in the end." SEE ALSO: Virtual march helps people with disabilities join the Women's March on Washington Oh, also, she said "fuck" a lot. To critics of the march specifically, she said "fuck you." According to Rolling Stone , both CNN and MSNBC quickly cut away from her speech after her swearing.

PARK CITY, Utah There's a scene in Tokyo Idols where Rio Hiiragi, a pop star trying to make it big, bikes to small provinces as a publicity stunt to meet her fans. She's wearing a cute yellow helmet and live streaming her trek. Trailing behind her are a handful of older men. They are her biggest fans. The documentary premiering at the Sundance Film Festival spotlights the world of young female performers "idols" who dress like anime characters and sing and dance for adoring crowds, even though many aren't very good at singing or dancing. It's more important for idols to be cute and tender to fans than sing well. Read more... More about Tokyo , Movie Reviews , Sundance , Movies , and Entertainment

There was a mistake made on Inauguration Day. Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey apologized Saturday for accidentally making it so that Twitter users followed @POTUS and other administrative accounts even when they tried not to. It was a complex ordeal during which Twitter told Mashable on Friday, following reports of users saying that they were automatically following @POTUS under Trump even when they were not before or had unfollowed prior to Inauguration ( as Twitter outlined they could do ), that there was no glitch. SEE ALSO: Will Melania Trump take over FLOTUS twitter? No one really knows. That is still true, in part. But Twitter engineers orchestrated settings that violated what they had said to do.

LONDON This Saturday tens of thousands of people are expected to take part in Women's Marches around the world to protest Donald Trump's first day in office. People in 160 cities including Washington D.C. and London from 60 countries are expected to take part. SEE ALSO: How to get involved with the Women's March on Washington if you're not in D.C.

"I think we are at a particular point in history when it is becoming increasingly important for people to step up and get out of their comfort zones and confront prejudice in all its forms," explains Kerry Haggerty, one of the women behind the London march.

The people are revolting. Donald Trump took the oath of office Friday and in part with that transition he has taken over the @POTUS account. Without any doing of your own, Twitter has made it so that if you followed @POTUS under Obama you're automatically following his now archived account at @POTUS44 in addition to the @POTUS account under Trump. That shouldn't come at a surprise if you read Mashable or The White House's official blog earlier this week. SEE ALSO: Twitter just isn't enough. President Trump takes to Snapchat. But if you weren't prepping for the Twitter transition, you might have been a little put off seeing tweets from Trump as @POTUS in the timeline. Even more off-putting, Twitter users are reporting that even if they weren't following the account, Twitter has made it so. Read more...
