I adopted the Indieweb about two months ago – I can comment on other blogs, tweet, like, reblog and so on – all from my blog. It’s fantastic. But it was a ton of (hand-coded) work to set up.

I’ve been using Emacs for over 20 years and I still basically suck at it. I’ve picked up some tricks over time, sure, but fewer tricks than a responsible tool user would learn after 1 year with something. No great excuse. That said, I finally installed yaml-mode. Watch out, yo.

Twitter may have temporarily banned @InfoWars but they still have Alex Jones’ personal account, the one endorsed by Twitter with the blue check mark. I have to imagine if they had a full time CEO this mess would be sorted a lot faster.

Oh wow. As an interesting aside, of the 8 replies to this conversation, two of them made it back to the original post, and Twitter has broken your link to developer.twitter.com/docs/faq#8650 under “best effort”.
