#BreakingMyTwitter, spiegato bene

by Matteo Scandolin

Sarah Perez ha fatto un bellissimo pezzo su TechCrunch sui cambiamenti di Twitter per le app terze parti. Leggi, ché c’è dentro tutto.

Inizia così:

It’s hard to be a fan of Twitter right now. The company is sticking up for conspiracy theorist Alex Jones, when nearly all other platforms have given him the boot, it’s overrun with bots, and now it’s breaking users’ favorite third-party Twitter clients like Tweetbot and Twitterific by shutting off APIs these apps relied on. Worse still, is that Twitter isn’t taking full responsibility for its decisions. [link]

La migliore esperienza possibile di Twitter

by Matteo Scandolin

Il post di Rob Johnson sul blog ufficiale di Twitter inizia così: Our goal is to deliver the best Twitter for you. La migliore versione di Twitter possibile si realizzerà quando si renderanno conto di non essere Facebook, e che quella strada non è quella giusta per loro.

Fintanto che, banalmente, Twitter si ostinerà a mostrare i tweet in ordine non-cronologico, una frase come Our goal is to deliver the best Twitter for you è una cazzata.

Our goal is to deliver the best Twitter for you. This year, we’re moving faster towards this goal by focusing on improving Twitter for iOS, Android, and twitter.com. As part of this, we’ve chosen to stop supporting some other experiences. We’ve removed support for Twitter for Apple Watch and Twitter for Mac, we’ve replaced our previous Twitter for Windows app with our Progressive Web App, and today we’re removing support for some outdated developer tools.
