The Beginning of the End of Twitter

August 17th, 2018 · No Comments

This is all about Twitter attempting to get people to use their own lousy Twitter client or web interface so that they can put ads and nonsense in front of your face and attempt to force you to read stuff you really couldn’t care to.

This is probably the beginning of the end of Twitter as they are struggling with no viable business model at all.

I always have and always will use a 3rd party app that allows me to use twitter in the way that I decide to use it and not the way that Twitter wants me to see their ads and irrelevant nonsense.

Fortunately most features still work with Tweetbot by Tapbots so I will continue to use it until it no longer works. When that happens I’m likely mostly done with twitter. I might use it to post but I certainly won’t be reading peoples posts.
