I have moved on (my Twitter usage consisted of mostly reading tweets from the tech community - and the tech community has pretty much moved over to Mastodon). I do not miss a thing to be honest.
Regarding Twitter and its API - it apparently is coming back (?):
We never had any kind of analytics to get a better # but my gut says a Twitter client would probably download 100k-250k Tweets/month per account per device. So if we get about 200 people willing to pay $400-500/month we could come back!
That sounds like a bargain, I guess. ( Sarcasm alert…)
In other news:
In theory this could mean that “Facebook” users could interact with Mastodon users in the long run. Or not.
No matter what: a decentralized network is the way to go in the future, it is a necessity and it is feasible. The cat is out of the bag.
Thanks for these updates. I applied for the API as well and am still waiting to hear back. Good to know that the app works without it and that I can spend $17 for 3 days of Twitter use before they shut the app down on us!
