another that calls the people who use are used by his service “dumb fucks?”
links to the article itself, rather than to one I suspect is about Zuckerberg. :)
Tweetdeck is still not an algorithmic feed yet, for what it's worth.
Not that I wanna drag you back to Twitter. Well done on junking it.
@aral This is wise. Rather than getting into pointless fights on the hell site, focus on the things you can change and promoting them instead.
I am still on Twitter. Heck, I am still on Facebook. But I don't do much with those sites anymore, and mostly avoid any sort of interaction there. Twitter is ok for observing what's happening in the wider world beyond twee techie land. It's not ok for having any kind of sensible discussion/debate about anything. I usually describe it as being a highly combative environment, and it's easy to suffer from combat fatigue.
@aral I'm curious, why continue to have a Twitter account?
(I ask this in good faith, after deactivating my account now three times, but always going back...)
@dajbelshaw If some of I do reaches some of the 44K people there, so be it. But I don’t need to check it or read it, etc. It’s so extra work to have posts published there too so why not? :)
Easy to receive updates without actually being logged in.
Some researchers or good journalists have publish their news on the birdsite
@aral @bmann our pleasure to work on this as time permits! But I have to clarify we only run it :) we took over running it as a service from the original developer. Hopefully we'll ship some features soon; so far we've only reduced the avg time to cross post, it should be about 30s now down from a few minutes.
