Thanksgiving roundup: YouTube URLs, Vine gets pushy and more

Since this Friday is a holiday (Black Friday is a legal holiday, isn’t it), I thought I’d do my weekly tidbit roundup a little early.
Putting the YOU back in YouTube
YouTube is making it possible to change your YouTube user name to something more fitting for your brand. This is huge because so many people didn’t give a lot of thought to the name they created when they signed up. My YouTube name, TVCyn, was created when I was working as a TV reporter.

Complete with age appropriate wise-assitude, Karissa took down one gamer after another as onlookers couldn’t believe what they were watching.


Of course, the whole thing was a stunt, and last Friday, a campaign video revealed the fact that pro gamer Liquid’KDJ was actually behind the controls. The reveal video is approaching 750,000 views.

Over the course of the stunt, many questioned the validity of Karissa’s game playing skills and Gawker’s gam…
