Donald Trump’s video apology goes out over Facebook, Twitter

Hours after the Washington Post published a video of Donald Trump in 2005 stating, among other things, that “And when you’re a star, they let you do it…You can do anything. Grab them by the p—y,” the candidate issued a video response that went out over social media. Despite Trump’s reputation as a heavy Twitter user (in 2012 he tweeted “I love Twitter…. it’s like owning your own newspaper— without the losses.”) it was published first on Facebook and then later on Twitter.

Just another example of how different this election has been from any before, those platforms allow the campaign to reach followers en masse — more than 11 million on Facebook and 12 million on Twitter — without having to worry about annoyances like anchors or journalists asking questions. Even with a debate coming up Sunday night, there was no need to face questions tonight about women who report being assaulted by Trump in specifically the manner described; instead, the candidate focused on the husband of his opponent.

As social media giveth, it also taketh away, and discussion of the #TrumpTape has been spirited on all platforms. A number of prominent Republican politicians tweeted that the videotaped comments were “indefensible” and “despicable” with a few going so far as to withdraw endorsements for Trump or push for him to withdraw from the campaign. Senator Mike Lee of Utah responded with a Facebook Live broadcast from his own home — we’re sure a Periscope or two will be right behind.

Google mobile search shows 6-second video previews

If you've searched for videos often enough on Google, you've probably had that moment where you tapped the wrong video because you weren't quite sure it was what you were looking for. No more: Google has added 6-second video previews to its mobile search results. As of this week, searches in Android's Google app or Chrome can show you a little bit of what each video entails as you flip through them in an on-screen carousel. The sneak peeks will only appear on WiFi by default and are opt-out, so you don't have to worry about burning through precious cellular data unless you're ready.

Notably, this feature isn't available on desktop right now (or, for that matter, iOS). Google tells our TechCrunch colleagues that it's due to the company's mobile focus. We'd add that mobile users are the ones likely to appreciate it most. Video dominates your phone screen in a way it doesn't on your PC, and you'd likely rather not hop back and forth between screens and apps until you find the video you wanted. It won't be surprising if the feature becomes ubiquitous across Google's search pages, though, as just about everyone can benefit from a quick look at the video they're about to watch.
