I've had a number of people suggest we ship Tweetbot with the ability to enter in your own API keys. Sure, technically I don't think anything would prevent us from doing it. But it'd likely start a cat and mouse game which ends with them killing certain APIs, complaining to Apple or legal crap.
No thanks. I have a lot of memories of Twitter, more good than bad. That all ended mid November.
The thing that calls itself Twitter now, does not bring me joy.
"When I first got access to the internet as a kid, the very first thing I did was to find people who liked the same things I liked — science fiction novels and TV shows, Dungeons and Dragons, and so on. In the early days, that was what you did when you got online — you found your people, whether on Usenet or IRC or Web forums or MUSHes and MUDs.
"Then in the 2010s, the internet changed. It wasn’t just the smartphone, though that did enable it. What changed is that internet interaction increasingly started to revolve around a small number of extremely centralized social media platforms: Facebook, Twitter, and later Instagram."
It's going to be so lovely to have all this competition and choice in charging providers.

It's fascinating and disturbing watching people take the plain language of the new policy and twist it to mean "well, they're really only going after spammers..."
It is clearly not that. There are two separate sections, one specifically about content *on the tweet level* and another on suspension of accounts.
People are happily concluding the latter precludes the former and it's driving me mad.
Space Karen went 101% mad. Promotion of alternative social platforms policy https://help.twitter.com/en/rules-and-policies/social-platforms-policy . This is not free speech or even a good biz decision. But what do I know? I am not a narcissistic person with tons of money. Just a lonely bloke.
Talk about insecure...
