Twitter is just software. Written by a company hostile to their own users, who could ban nazi's in a snap, but don't. I'm here because most are. Let's change - On the Internet, you can be in two places at once. The least that could happen is Twitter improves.

Humans automating machines to write like humans to fool other humans into believing they received a personal letter from a human so that presumably they give a company money.

It's Friday, so I want to share one of the most fun projects I've ever worked on.

A few years ago, I built four eight-foot-long handwriting robots.

We wrote many thousands and thousands of addresses on our direct mail, and wrote personal messages for high value prospects.

I also mentioned they’re really small and easy to hide at school - may have armed entire school district

Just talked to a kid at big w who was about to purchase a nerf chaingun that bigger doesn’t mean more power. That the most powerful nerf gun is the $4 jolt, which is the cheapest and can be modded, also can share with a friend. Just saw kid walk out with two jolts and thanked me.

I wanted these shoes to work out. Btw the hickies were only used during the second half of the other shoes life, the etikos design stretches them too much.

Buying new shoes today because @etikofairtrade@twitter.com’s sneakers can’t put up with 6 months of punishment of someone… with a desk job? Note the tear and rubber separated at end of laces. Other shoe is I dunno, 3 yrs old. No wonder they don’t list Twitter on their emails.

Jeremy poxon if you need refuge in Adelaide for any reason, say from angry guardian columnists and think tankers I got a study bed you can use for real. This is not an online joke. I draw the line at strawb milk tho. Did good.

I still get some people occasionally asking me about my relationship with doTERRA essential oils. This tweet shows where our relationship ended up 👇 twitter.com/benleemusic/status

So, I requested an internal review. this isn't a cia document. we're talking about shidding and farding here. they got it or they dont.
Also hi @thepmo@twitter.com! you have a request now too!
please don't ignore it like the other mean department did :( righttoknow.org.au/request/eng

Show thread

So only after contacting @OAICgov@twitter.com and their 'early intake and resolution team' getting in contact with @pmc_gov_au@twitter.com did i actually recieve any response, they said 'sorry for not replying earlier' but when push came to shove they tried to make out like i didn't make a valid request

Show thread

It's been more than 30 days, this makes it a deemed refusal and literally I am to take this as if the minister refused the request himself.

why don't you want to talk about engadine maccas @ScottMorrisonMP@twitter.com? I thought you found it funny old buddy ol pal

'too goddamn weird'.

anyway, goodnight.

to top it off I think twitter also told me to go fuck myself as well when i opened this dialog

Show thread

I received the response "Oh. yeah. I'm sorry I just don't understand half the things you talk about on there. post more pics of $son". well, you got it. with @tarale@twitter.com diagnosed autistic, and talk of 'special interests' - I feel like me talking to other people ends up just being

I think this is just a reminiscence/lament of what the internet used to be, and not what it is now. or maybe it's just me.
I think the clencher was when I was talking to some older in-laws at a family function and we discussed something topical and I said i posted about it

Show thread

I mean, expressing an opinion of any sort on facebook/online can mean painting a cross on your back long term - there's no real good reason to do it. I decided the effort was not worth the trouble. heck i've read articles about people being fired for 'liking' things.
