Could really do with being able to reuse the SoCoder uploader on Mastodon, but from the testing I've done, any images won't show up on there, which is a shame.

Elon fired another set of people. Now there is a major outage. The former twitter boss started a new twitter competitor.

I wish they would fix that instagram screen to fit inside a tablet screen.

Yeah, you'd think they'd make a half-decent iPad Instagram version by now, right?! I mean, it's 13 years since the iPad launched..

If it helps, at all, I've just been using their website, instead.
And if you bookmark this specific page, it'll show everything in proper timeline order. (Until they break that!)

If I open up any instagram link. It opens up the app! 🙈

Oh yeah, I uninstalled that app, too.
It's still on my phone, but not the iPad.

My Tweetdeck has just updated. It says TweetDeck Preview in the bottom left, so whether it's available to all, no idea.
The "Notifications" column now includes everything that isn't a fucking notification, just like Main Twitter does.

Oh, joy..

Twitter blue can have 10k characters text now. It has become a newspaper. There were a number of longer posts showing up for a while.

No more DM for users that have the free account. That kind of makes twitter a lot less useful. I have had so many DM with companies. Getting customer service is no longer possible.

Oh, no more DMs now, gosh, that's pretty shit, puts paid to my plans to get back in contact with a whole lot of people on my now dead account.

I guess the problem is that the other party would also need to be paying ...£6.99 a week?! to use PMs also in order to receive them.

Compare that to other services like Spotify, Netflix, Amazon Prime, etc. What a rip-off. I might just choose to grow on Mastadon instances then.

The other person will get a notification with a price tag attached. It'll be just like Voicemails!!

(PS, I'm taking the piss here, no idea what their plan is. I don't think they have one.)

This week in Twitter Hell.
Twitter have now clamped down on TWEETS!!!
You have to be logged into view a tweet, and any external site needs to log in via the API in order to display a tweet, and even then it'll only show up if the user's logged into twitter.

Holy fucking shit.

Since Facebook and Instagram will not let me read anything without an account, I am not sure why Twitter should be different, although it means I will never have an account at any of them. Simply not worth joining any of them.

I like Cohost even though I have zero people following me.

Mastodon seems nice too, and I chose the instance I did because George Takei was on it. Jay is following me on Mastodon.

I was using GETTR a lot and was very active, but I deleted my account. Too crazy there.

Do you have to be logged in to see Facebook/Instagram stuff?!
I haven't tested the Facebook thing for a while..
Hang on..

> Reveal 🔎

Nah, that still seems to work ok when not logged in. As long as the facebook post is set to public, anyway. (I do need to add a white background to the facebook area, though)
*done*.. Messily, but it's facebook, sod it!

Anytime a link for Facebook or Instagram is in an article, it will not let me view it. Really getting tired of having to have an account everywhere, and damn near every site wanting $$ nowadays.

Hell, just got an email from an author I like with info about his podcast. On a new service I haven't heard of and guess what, need an account to listen. Not that many podcasts are easily downloadable anymore, so you can put it on your MP3 player. Most of them, I have to resort to using IDM on my Windows machine.

New development. You may only read 600 tweets per day with a free account. A temporary thing it is said because of the data mining.

Oddly enough, I was finally considering joining Twitter, but it seems pointless now if people have to be a member to read a post. If people can't see a post, they also can't see the ads (which seems counter-productive on Twitter's end).

On the subject of Twitter falling into a chasm of insanity, I figured I'd best do an overhaul of my "Today's Stroll" thing.
For the past decade I've been posting any outdoor walks to Twitter, with the "Today's Stroll" title, but if that's all fucked up... well.. :/

The problem now, is the gigantic fucking URL..
Going to need to shorten that somehow, but bit.ly seems to be heading the way of Twitter with all its recent "premium things that used to be fee" features.
God damnit..

I used to have a script that handled that on my site, but later would simply set up a webpage that would immediately redirect to the long URL. Then I would just give out the URL for the webpage I made. Made it handy if what I was redirecting to, I had to move to a different service.

Aye, I considered that as soon as I posted it, and now AGameAWeek.com/Stroll will get you there.
Sorted.

The daily read limit has been increased to 1000 per day for free users.

I am not opening up twitter anymore. A thousand is nothing. Things like scrolling through the pixel dailies or pixel art sections or screenshot Saturday or trailer Tuesday etc burns that up in no time.

Reddit?

Mastadon only has like 200000 users it seems.

The more we use Mastodon, the more others might, too. It's like when CodersWorkshop was destroyed by the great Idigidragon, and the community splintered, fracturing it forever.
The more we all choose the same single place to gather, the better that place will be.

300.000.000 is a lot bigger. The fun was in the size. Facebook was planning a twitter thing? If they can grow it quickly?

I think I wil just follow reddit until things change. Reddit was blocking access to replies too I noticed. But the iPad app can read these.
