A tweet by a noted paleontologist 

"Be skeptical/critical of the comments related to dinosaur extinction here. It’s also important to remember birds constitute an incredible adaptive radiation of dinosaurs that are still with us today. "

Here is the paywalled paper that supports that article.  Boy I hope humans are just one tenth as successful as dinosaurs

Another Paleontologist chimed in on Twitter.  They must not like the paper

 

"Dinosaurs were not too successful for their own good.  They were successful, period.  Then an asteroid randomly hit.  They diversified as a supercontinent fragmented, so yes, their biogeography changed over time."
