I'm seriously considering leaving Twitter for good. If only there wasn't still so many interesting people to follow.
At least there's still tweetdeck, which shows tweets chronologically.
If I had to use the main site with its bullshit, black-box algorithmic sequence of tweets I would probably have already left.

Has anyone checked in on the alpaca people? Like what happens after unexpectedly making 100MM on socks?
I love the design of the new Tesla Cybertruck. Looks friggen awesome. If #synthwave was a car, this is what it would look like.

Very interesting stuff in the leaked Facebook documents, indeed.
For example, Facebook did actually analyze "call log data (e.g. duration/frequency/recency of incoming/outgoing calls/texts)" and use it for friend suggestions.
