I really want to quit Twitter

I have been enjoying Twitter for a couple years now. I prefer to it to the brain dead Facebook experience as I have always used it as a news reader. However, Twitter is quickly becoming a forum for “alternative facts” and racial slurs. The Turkish flag banner remains on some accounts where the #Nazialmanya and #Nazihollanda tweets have been removed https://t.co/gPEYWGTihA pic.twitter.com/FYOSvnKAwC — Gizmodo (@Gizmodo) March 15, 2017 Now, I am not advocating censorship here, but we are experiencing serious abuse here, and Twitter has, in my opinion, not been able to create functionality that gives the user an idea...

Twitter køber Tweetie

In an unsurprising move, Twitter has acquired atebits and their excellent client for iPhone (Tweetie) will become Twitter for iPhone.

Man Resigns On Twitter In Haiku. Happens To Be Sun CEO Jonathan Schwartz.

Dette er en ret morsom historie, som viser hvad man også kan bruge Twitter til. Historien bliver selvfølgelig lidt bedre når der er tale om en person, der er rimeligt højt profileret i IT branchen. When you’re on your way out of a job, there’s a lot of fun ways to exit. Some choose to take all the staplers in the office, some show up to the last day in shorts, some pull a Jerry Maguire. And some tweet out a haiku. … Really, what more needs to be said? Schwartz had been serving as Sun’s CEO since 2006; prior...
