Twitter/Mastodon Thread


So, looks like Twitters got, maybe days left, before it collapses into a chaotic mass of nothingness.
That Mastodon account I signed up for back in 2018 sure came in handy!

If you're on Mastodon, post your profile links here.

I have no idea about mastodon, something about joining a server, having to move the server you are registered on or set up your own does not sound like a way to provide an alternative to twitter? Confusing.

I'll have to read up on it, because the above is the impression I've picked up this last few weeks.

From what I've picked up, it works a little like how Usenet used to. Each server does its own thing, but they're all gathered .. somehow, magically.
Not really sure on the specifics.
If it takes off, and ISPs and such start to host their own servers like they did with Newsgroups, I imagine that'd be quite stable.

The main one?
Here's an invite link (allows 5 people to join, and lasts a week. If anyone misses out, let me know.)

For the meantime. He's threatening to Bankrupt the whole thing, though.
At that point all of your personal data, your pics, videos, everything.. Over a decade of your content.. That all gets put into the hands of some grubby little Bankruptcy firm.
Ugh..

I do really really want it to continue, but it's not looking good!

Have anyone tried to get data from twitter
https://twitter.com/settings/download_your_data
(https://help.twitter.com/en/managing-your-account/accessing-your-twitter-data)
Does it have all the data that you have posted?

It took about a day and a half for mine to be downloadable! 7.5Gb of garbage!!!!
I was surprised to find hundreds of 30 second Switch Screen Recordings in there.
There's also the media of anything I've retweeted, too, so I'm getting some crazy shit in there.

Seems to be everything.
Could've done with the file timestamps on all the media being set, though.
I might have to write a script that goes through the tweets and sets the timestamps.

At least you have all the data and someone might have already written some script to decode the data correctly.
This service might be closed soon like translate tweet not available anymore in tweets. Someone had tweeted about you in top 3 in smilebasic in Japanese and I couldn't see the translate tweet link.

Is there a possibility for apps collecting RSS/Atom feeds of many websites making a comeback.

I fixed up AGameAWeek's RSS feed the other day just for that very reason.
Google Plus and Google Reader would be very welcome returns, right about now!

OK, job done.
It's a PHP script, so hopefully you have a way to run that on your system!

Stick it inside the "Twitter_timestamp_crypticnumber/" folder beside "Your archive.html" and run it.
It'll scan through all the media defined in the tweets.js files, and if you then open the data/tweets_media/, everything will have accurate timestamps of the associated tweets on.
Gud gud!

Twitter closes its doors for a week, in a move that can only be seen as the end of Twitter.
Farewell.
It's been a fun almost-16 years. (I signed up Jan 2007)

I don't know if it is true, but I read that someone who managed badge and building access was laid off, and Elon called them later because they'd switched something off and locked themselves out of the building.

Helen asked a really good question...

Elon is obviously a smart man, he probably knows fine well what he's doing. He's shutting down Twitter in a way that looks like incompetence.... but why?


Ideas...
Is it some sort of tax scam perhaps? (I hear billionaires love doing that sort of thing.)
Is he trying to silence free speech?
Is it something else?

Word is that the Twitter app might be removed from the apple app store. Twitter needs to start moderating or this will happen. This according to a tweet by Musk.

The website wil remain accessible though.

How odd, if true (Elon likes alt-facts doesn't he?)

Latest news I saw just yet that Twitter will not moderate that Covid disinformation anymore. I think Twitter is sinking.
I have the idea that I might have to look at that mastodon. No idea if Twitter wil stay alive long.

Mastodon ftw!
I must admit, my general mindset is a lot less chaotic, now that I'm seeing 85% political crap. I really did need a good Twitter Clearout, and this is certainly one way to do it!

Back when he first took over, there was an article where the upset people were flocking to another service. I wish I could remember the name of the service to check it out, it wasn't Gab, GETTR, TUMBLR or Mastadon. Hmmm...
