After recent developments, Mark not only looks like a sane person compared to Musk, but Facebook Quest looks like a fine product compared to Apple Vision.

How the tables turned!

Microsoft is so funny with its developers. I can neither get into Azure nor publish an app on Microsoft Store. They must really hate having high-quality apps built on their platforms.


Learning ML brings me back to when I had just started programming. My brain explodes with ideas about what I can do.

It's a fantastic long-gone feeling.

I noticed that developers are most passionate and dogmatic about the most inconsequential things, like tabs vs. spaces, const fn = () => {} function fn() {}, or let vs. const, using switch, etc.

When a JS dev ends up in hell, they are not physically tortured. Instead, they try to finish a passion project, but their dev environment breaks daily.

They wake up and spend the whole day upgrading Node.js and the deps, which all had major releases. And that for eternity.

@grandfubar it’s an OK distribution channel, and I'm sure I'll outlive Space Karen on it. But never say never!

@chertograd yeah, network effect is sticky but I’m confident in musk’s ability to destroy it

@AbortTheGQPNOW oh I’m sure he will have to sell it, it’s such a liability

@yoopermoose I’m not leaving per se it’s going to be just a distribution channel for me

@jperlow @tchambers yes it's over API, but the thing is it's not an actual suspension but rather a way to make us move to the new API quicker.

@jackyan that's a good point, no way I'm watching these (scammy nowadays btw) ads or paying for Blue.

Chirr App is the ORIGINAL thread maker. I released it in 2017 when the limit was 140, and threads weren't a thing.

We're a small team of three bootstrapping this business for six years, and our livelihood depends on it.

We put a lot of time and energy and brought a lot to Twitter.

Twitter is valuable because of the people that use it and how they use it.

Twitter must really HATE developers. Our app, with over 1000 paying customers and even more free users, got suspended on Good Friday night for "violating" Twitter Rules.

After the Weekend and Monday, we still not getting an answer even though we had paid for the plan.

We got from featuring #1 on the Twitter Toolbox, that supposed to honor developers that spend years improving the ecosystem, down to being disrespected.
