I’ve been using the official Twitter client as my only access on mobile and, honestly, it’s not fine or just as good as third party options. For the people who say this it’s clear they have abandoned the idea that good standards – let alone high standards – are important.

Pro Tip: yelling at people to leave established social media services for something that is not as developed or user friendly will not make the alternative look good.

I’m listening to the latest ATP, speficially the discussion about Apple’s education event. Honestly, “They’re a luxury brand and always have been." is becoming an increasingly weak counter to any number of critiques. Apple are failing in multiple ways.

A blog post greatly inspiring my thoughts for a blog post, Γ  la the web.

I made a ‘faves’ playlist on Pocket Casts (incidentally, Shifty Jelly just released a Windows app) and it turns out I uh… well, there are 28 podcasts in the filter. Too much podcast? πŸ€” Or not enough podcasts???? πŸ€”πŸ€”πŸ€”

Last year, Elon Musk personally urged workers not to unionize, and promised to provide them with free frozen yogurt if they listened to him.

Elon Musk Is an Asshole

But yay rockets amirite.
