Discussion on: Twitter Is the Afterparty

My two first jobs after getting my degree were related to the Twitter API. I've used Twitter a lot and found it incredibly useful for years with as they were developer-friendly and helped me get my job done. The changes on the latest years have locked out most third-party apps out, and using theirs I find that their algorithms get a lot of content I don't want to see to my timeline anyway. It gets me either angry and sad, so nowdays I only log in once a month to check my notifications and that's it.

I can get most of the content I got from their curated feeds via RSS, but I miss the fast and easy social interactions with some of my colleagues. Therefore I joined this platform hoping it will filter the noise and stays on-topic, getting back the sense of community.
