I’m doing some UX research work with Tweetie. I was able to get it to work (albeit with very frequent crashes) with the old Twitter-api.wordpress.com API root.

I look at r/The_Donald for the same reasons @liss watches Fox News. I had a nightmare last night that they found out about Micro.blog and we’re preparing for invasion. Instead of the usual falling until you wake up. I couldn’t type to warn @manton and @macgenie. Glad that one wasn’t real.

On a podcast recently, they talked about this app that was competing with OmniFocus. They said that that app would go from feature request to release in a day. They said that it eventually burned out and the developer disappeared. Then I realized, that’s exactly what happened to me with Micron.

It’s interesting to see this whole QAnon thing where they’re attaching Trump saying the number 17 to refer to a number of something as a show of support (Q is the 17th letter in the alphabet).
