      Some interesting ideas to watch here.

      I remember a Twitter app service that was built around Twitter lists that I was an early user of, but I'm not able to find it now. I'm not sure if it's even still around after Twitter killed off a lot of their API access years ago.

    1. At this conjuncture, taking to Twitter to assert one’s antifascist bona-fides is just as futile as studying Sanskrit in resistance to authoritarian communism. Just as futile, and a lot less interesting.
    1. Twitter search filter Search results filter:follows tweets only from accounts you follow filter:news tweets containing news filter:links tweets containing links filter:images tweets containing images filter:videos tweets containing videos filter:periscope tweets containing Periscope videos filter:retweets classic RT retweets or quote tweets filter:nativeretweets retweets via the retweet button filter:safe tweets excluding adult content filter:verified tweets from verified accounts

      These are generally useful. I've used most of them regularly for the past three years. In particular one of my primary modes of reading Twitter is with the link: https://twitter.com/search?q=filter%3Afollows%20-filter%3Areplies&src=typed_query&f=live

    1. Timothy Caulfield. (2021, December 30). #RobertMalone suspended by #twitter today. Reaction: 1) Great news. He has been spreading harmful #misinformation. (He has NOT contributed to meaningful/constructive scientific debate. His views demonstrably wrong & polarizing.) 2) What took so long? #ScienceUpFirst [Tweet]. @CaulfieldTim. https://twitter.com/CaulfieldTim/status/1476346919890796545

    1. I spend most of my day in iOS Notes app.

      Did I ever really find this man intelligent??? Things sincerely do make a lot more sense now. Such a specific lack of aspiration.

    1. In addition to the daily limits, there are follow ratios that go into effect once you’re following a certain number of accounts:Every Twitter account can follow up to 5,000 accounts. Once you reach that number, you may need to wait until your account has more followers before you can follow additional accounts. This number is different for each account and is automatically calculated based on your unique ratio of followers to following.

      Hello. I am a paying subscriber, now, after all these years… I may or may not have become a paying subscriber just to justify this particular feedback after all this time.

      Ultimately, though, I’m giving you a real substantial bullet point to put on that very wispy-looking full features list of Twitter Blue!

    1. https://blog.twitter.com/en_us/topics/product/2021/twitter-smarter--twitter-harder-with-twitter-blue

      Meh... This looks like a play which will have them buying up smaller subscription apps that do these sorts of services separately and putting other competitors out of business.

      Watch out Readwise, ThreadReaderApp, etc.

    2. On iOS and desktop, Twitter Blue members will enjoy a fast-loading, ad-free reading experience when they visit many of their favorite news sites available in the US from Twitter, such as The Washington Post, L.A. Times, USA TODAY, The Atlantic, Reuters, The Daily Beast, Rolling Stone, BuzzFeed, Insider and The Hollywood Reporter.

      I just want Scroll back...

    1. Twitter Blue Publisher network

      Hey Twitter,

      I love that you chose to show support for Lists by sharing the list of Blue publishers, this way. This is a decision I want to celebrate!

      However, this hyperlink isn’t particularly useful in that the user has no ability to actually follow the list. Aside from manually bookmarking it on a browser (since you can’t if you let the deeplink open the native app,) there is no way to save it!

    1. The only complaint about Twitter I remember that hasn't already been addressed here is the capability of editable 'toots.' Is that a possibility? That won't happen. There's actually a good reason why they don't do that. It's simply because you could make a toot about one thing, have people favorite it and share it, link it from other places, and then suddenly, it says 'Heil Hitler,' or something.

      Addressing this issue in my upcoming review of Twitter Blue.

    1. On the geopolitical stage, it’s hard to argue with the claim that Twitter is a force of evil. But Twitter is also the infrastructural backbone of much of the digital humanities world.

    1. For clear writing, answer these questions 1. What Am I Really Trying To Say 2. Why Should People Care 3. What Is The Most Important Point 4. What Is The Easiest Way To Understand The Most Important Point 5. How Do I Want The Reader To Feel 6. What Should The Reader Do Next
    1. With NFTs, blockchains make the jump from finance into creative applications. Regulators would do well to recognize that blockchains are the next generation of the Internet, and applying financial regulations to NFTs is a category error.

      Che trasformazione portano effettivamente gli #NFT ?

      Grazie agli #NFT la #blockchain passa dall'ambito strettamente finanziario a quello artistico e creativo.

      Chi impone regole a questi ambiti allora, dovrebbe tener conto che la #blockchain è davvero il futuro di internet e che cercare di applicare ad essa delle regole troppo strette è folle.

    2. “Actual-value NFTs” can draw upon legal and code-based contracts - a song token can provide a royalty stream, a ticket token can provide access, a metaverse token can grant land titles, an item token can have in-game powers, an ISA token can provide a cut of creator earnings.

      Proprio per questo legame indissolubile col concetto di proprietà un token #NFT di un bene che si rivela remunerativo in qualche modo, si rivela accesso ad una parte di questa remunerazione. Ad esempio: il token di una canzone è accesso ai diritti d'autore della canzone in questione.

    3. For NFTs representing digital art and collectibles, the creator cannot enforce scarcity - it’s up to a surrounding community to imbue the authorized NFT with scarcity and prestige within the context of that community.

      Che ruolo c'è tra l' #NFT e la #community che ruota intorno a loro?

      Si tratta di quello stesso legame che c'è alla base del #contrattosociale

      Le #community intorno agli #NFT infatti rendono gli #NFT di valore perché esse stesse ci credono, nel momento in cui la #community muore allora anche lo specifico #NFT perde di valore.

      Nel caso delle #cryptomonete questo valore è tratto dagli enti che le creano e decidono di mantenerle.

    4. By assigning a unique token to a thing, its ownership (not the thing itself!) becomes programmable, verifiable, divisible, durable, universally addressable, composable, digitally secured, and easy to transfer.

      Quale è un presupposto fondamentale dell' #NFT ?

      È il fatto che il vero controllo è esercitato sulla proprietà della risorsa e non sulla risorsa stessa. Una volta che le viene associato il token la proprietà diventa programmabile, verificabile, divisibile, duratura ecc.

    5. An NFT is a unique, on-chain token representing ownership of an off-chain asset. The token is backed by a social contract from its creator and a surrounding community.

      Cos'è un #NFT ?

      È un token presente sulla #blockchain che rappresenta la proprietà di una risorsa esterna alla blockchain stessa.

      Questo token è verificato da un contratto tra il suo creatore e la community

    1. Kevin Marks talks about the bridging of new people into one's in-group by Twitter's retweet functionality from a positive perspective.

      He doesn't foresee the deleterious effects of algorithms for engagement doing just the opposite of increasing the volume of noise based on one's in-group hating and interacting with "bad" content in the other direction. Some of these effects may also be bad from a slow brainwashing perspective if not protected for.

    1. We may think of Pinterest as a visual form of commonplacing, as people choose and curate images (and very often inspirational quotations) that they find motivating, educational, or idealistic(Figure 6). Whenever we choose a passage to cite while sharing an article on Facebook or Twitter, we are creating a very public commonplace book on social media. Every time wepost favorite lyrics from a song or movie to social media or ablog, weare nearing the concept of Renaissance commonplace book culture.

      I'm not the only one who's thought this. Pinterest, Facebook, twitter, (and other social media and bookmarking software) can be considered a form of commonplace.

    1. ReconfigBehSci on Twitter: “@ToddHorowitz3 ok, but I would have hoped that in an ideal public communication medium for science, people had megaphones that were commensurate with their skills and expertise, if there was variation among platform members at all. And I’d hope that users were calibrated re own expertise” / Twitter. (n.d.). Retrieved August 10, 2021, from https://twitter.com/SciBeh/status/1423710934925598725

    1. I like the differentiation that Jared has made here on his homepage with categories for "fast" and "slow".

      It's reminiscent of the system 1 (fast) and system2 (slow) ideas behind Kahneman and Tversky's work in behavioral economics. (See Thinking, Fast and Slow)

      It's also interesting in light of this tweet which came up recently:

      I very much miss the back and forth with blog posts responding to blog posts, a slow moving argument where we had time to think.

      — Rachel Andrew (@rachelandrew) August 22, 2017
      <script async src="https://platform.twitter.com/widgets.js" charset="utf-8"></script>

      Because the Tweet was shared out of context several years later, someone (accidentally?) replied to it as if it were contemporaneous. When called out for not watching the date of the post, their reply was "you do slow web your way…" #

      This gets one thinking. Perhaps it would help more people's contextual thinking if more sites specifically labeled their posts as fast and slow (or gave a 1-10 rating?). Sometimes the length of a response is an indicator of the thought put into it, thought not always as there's also the oft-quoted aphorism: "If I Had More Time, I Would Have Written a Shorter Letter".

      The ease of use of the UI on Twitter seems to broadly make it a platform for "fast" posting which can often cause ruffled feathers, sour feelings, anger, and poor communication.

      What if there were posting UIs (or micropub clients) that would hold onto your responses for a few hours, days, or even a week and then remind you about them after that time had past to see if they were still worth posting? This is a feature based on Abraham Lincoln's idea of a "hot letter" or angry letter, which he advised people to write often, but never send.

      Where is the social media service for hot posts that save all your vituperation, but don't show them to anyone? Or which maybe posts them anonymously?

      The opposite of some of this are the partially baked or even fully thought out posts that one hears about anecdotally, but which the authors say they felt weren't finish and thus didn't publish them. Wouldn't it be better to hit publish on these than those nasty quick replies? How can we create UI for this?

      I saw a sitcom a few years ago where a girl admonished her friend (an oblivious boy) for liking really old Instagram posts of a girl he was interested in. She said that deep-liking old photos was an obvious and overt sign of flirting.

      If this is the case then there's obviously a social standard of sorts for this, so why not hold your tongue in the meanwhile, and come up with something more thought out to send your digital love to someone instead of providing a (knee-)jerk reaction?

      Of course now I can't help but think of the annotations I've been making in my copy of Lucretius' On the Nature of Things. Do you suppose that Lucretius knows I'm in love?

    1. “Substack is longform media Twitter, for good and for ill,” wrote Ashley Feinberg in the first installment of her Substack.

      Definitely a hot take, but a truthful sounding one.

    1. 推特上一个关于居家远程办公大趋势的预测帖,要点包括:

      • 人们会向小城市迁移,降低生活成本,生活品质提高,但小城市必须提供更优质的教育和更快的网速。
      • 异步工作:办公室里大家同时上下班,其实会给工作带来很多干扰,大家在家里按照不同的时间来工作,反而效率会更高。
      • 人们会更积极地投入线下兴趣群体,和当地社群建立联系,摆脱孤独感。
      • 公司团队将可以变得极为多元和包容,从全世界吸纳人才。
      • 对工作表现的评估将更以结果为导向,而不是看你在办公室待了多久、下班后是不是去陪老板喝酒了。
      • 公司往往担心员工在家摸鱼,但实际上,员工在家反而可能工作更努力,以至于出现过劳。
      • 省下的通勤时间相当于25天,可以用来做很多有利于身心健康的事情。
      • 可以支持随处工作的房车会成为大热,特斯拉说不定会专门开发这种房车。
      • 写作能力会非常非常重要,在远程办公的场景下,它的重要性远胜过口头表达能力。

    1. Add everyone you follow on Twitter to a list.

      Looks like a cool project. Not sure it still works...

    1. registrants

      Not comprehensive of all registrants or participants, but here's the start of a Twitter list of people who participated for those interested:


      Do let me know if you've been missed or would like to be added.

    1. Professor, interested in plagues, and politics. Re-locking my twitter acct when is 70% fully vaccinated.

      Example of a professor/research who has apparently made his Tweets public, but intends to re-lock them majority of threat is over.

    1. This is rather slick. It would be interesting to parse the root URL and show more context of the original author's name, avatar, etc. as well.

    1. You should design languages to start small and then grow. You should design languages so that users help you grow them easily. The solution to the Cathedral vs Bazaar is let everyone play but have a BDFL decide what to take in/out. Have a Shopping Mall of good ideas. It is good for you and your users, to give them a chance to buy in and pitch in. If you design a small number of useful patterns, you can say no to a lot more things that not everybody uses, while letting them define things they will use.

      To a great extent, this is also the sort of game plan that Twitter created with their early product (and their API) which made them wildly successful.

      Sadly, they took it all away at some point.

    1. ReconfigBehSci. (2020, November 18). @danielmabuse yes, we all make mistakes, but a responsible actor also factors the kinds of mistakes she is prone to making into decisions on what actions to take: I’m not that great with my hands, so I never contemplated being a neuro-surgeon. Not everyone should be a public voice on COVID [Tweet]. @SciBeh. https://twitter.com/SciBeh/status/1329002783094296577

    1. Darren Dahly. (2021, February 24). @SciBeh One thought is that we generally don’t ‘press’ strangers or even colleagues in face to face conversations, and when we do, it’s usually perceived as pretty aggressive. Not sure why anyone would expect it to work better on twitter. Https://t.co/r94i22mP9Q [Tweet]. @statsepi. https://twitter.com/statsepi/status/1364482411803906048

    1. Nuzzel has been one of the few apps I've truly loved. It's been great for discovery. It's one of the very few I use every day and it's one of only three apps that I allow to give me notifications on my phone.

      I'm devastated....

    1. Their care for the communities and the journalists and creators that serve them is not isolated to the people who are explicitly paid to care about such things. That sense of service permeates the whole company. Seeing that has been a unique experience.

      Care for the communities? Really?! I'm not so sure here...

      However, we’re not moving fast enough.

      I'm also a bit reticent about the We're not moving fast enough part. Sure we need to help out journalists, but usually moving fast in the social space has been a disservice to the user.

    1. build and maintain a sense of professional community. Educator and TikTok user Jeremy Winkle outlines four ways teachers can do this: provide encouragement, share resources, provide quick professional development, and ask a question of the day (Winkler).

      I love all of these ideas. It's all-around edifying!

    1. This looks interesting, but not quite sure where they may be going. Looks like a company that Twitter has bought out.

    1. I like how Dr. Pacheco-Vega outlines some of his research process here.

      Sharing it on Twitter is great, and so is storing a copy on his website. I do worry that it looks like the tweets are embedded via a simple URL method and not done individually, which means that if Twitter goes down or disappears, so does all of his work. Better would be to do a full blockquote embed method, so that if Twitter disappears he's got the text at least. Images would also need to be saved separately.
