Logo makeovers, Twitter records and crispy chicken tacos

We rounded up the buzziest news from this week in just under a minute. Watch and be a little smarter going into the weekend.

There were a few logo makeovers this week: Google shed its serif font for a sleeker one, while Verizon downsized its check-mark. Who’s next to switch up their look?

Meanwhile, MTV’s Video Music Awards this past Sunday set a new Twitter record, with more than 2.2 million people sent 21.4 million tweets. The most-tweeted moment? Kanye announcing that he’s supposedly running for president in 2020.

If that’s too far-fetched, imagine streaming “Seinfeld” or “The Mindy Project” without any ad interruptions. You can, now that Hulu is offering an ad-free plan for $11.99. It’s pitting itself against other commercial-free services like Amazon Prime and Netflix.

Speaking of flipping the model, Taco Bell did something similar with its signature product, making a taco shell out of fried chicken. The inside-out taco comes on the heels of other weird food mash-ups like KFC’s Double Down chicken sandwich and Taco Bell’s Dorito’s-flavored taco shell. But if you want to stick to your traditional fast-food fare, don’t worry. McDonald’s said it will now sell breakfast all day — which might make choosing lunch even more stressful.

Let us know if we missed anything from this week.
