Computational Complexity: Whither Twitter

Twitter tells me it’s my twitterversary, 15 years since I first started tweeting. Not sure I’ll make it to sweet sixteen.

No longer do tweets show up on this blog page. Twitter can’t tell the difference between some AI engine slurping up tweets and their own display widget showing tweets on a weblog. Bill complains that he can no longer follow my Twitter as he refuses to set up an account on the site and you can’t read tweets without one. Also I will soon lose access to TweetDeck without paying the $8/month that wouldn’t solve the other problems. This is ignoring that fact that since Elon has taken over Twitter, the site has just become far less fun.

I have accounts on Mastodon and now Threads. The two combined have less that 100 followers compared to the 5400 I have on Twitter. Not sure how many of those 5400 are bots or people who no longer read twitter regularly. 

For now my tweets get imported into Mastodon which now appear on this blog page. Eventually once Threads gets proper web support and APIs I expect that will become the new twitter and I’ll move there. We’ll have to see.
