Twitter seems mondo messed up these days: the Alex Jones fiasco, the brilliant idea to curb “fake news” echo chambers by promoting “alternative viewpoints” in your feed (how would this even work? Do you get shown tweets from Roseanne if you have a rose emoji in your display name?), re-banning people who shouldn’t have been banned in the first place, archives being weaponized by ghouls, etc. I use the third-party app Tweetbot which gives me quick access to lists and gets rid of most of Twitter’s junk (posts people liked, “in case you missed it,” incessant suggestions of people to follow, stupid display names) but Twitter is hellbent on wrecking that too. Some people are signing up for something called Mastodon, but it’s a joke and has apparently has its own problems. All that aside, I still get value out of Twitter (I made Maude Flanders laugh!) and I’m just going to hope everything will magically fix itself.
Also, I never got any sort of e-mail or notification that the service Storify shut down due to GDPR. Luckily I’d already saved Geoff Johns’ Cereal Adventure. I’m going to try to see if I can recover others with wayback machine archives. Never Trust A Web Service
