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.

have a meeting this morning that i really think is going to suck.

TFW you realise you'll never get a breakdown ever again of internet access method for australia (eg fibre, vdsl, wireless), because @acccgovau@twitter.com only record the nebulous "NBN" vs "Non-NBN". pour one out for the real og's at @ABSStats@twitter.com who did it correctly. abs.gov.au/ausstats/abs@.nsf/m

Been watching @PodsDank@twitter.com for like 2 weeks and got weirdly excited when I realised he’s going to the local cashies and that he’s therefore localish. ADL represent

Any journo got a spare $888 to give to the DTA to find out exactly how much the CovidSafe app was a failure from the getgo? righttoknow.org.au/request/bcg asking for this guy

many depts use the "please clarify" method as an excuse to stop requests in their track, often setting time limits on when people can clarify. granted, some requests flat out don't make sense, but it's far too often used as an excuse to not perform the work. good on the abc!

A hearty commendation for our @abcaustralia@twitter.com FOI team. On @RightToKnowAu@twitter.com where they've been asked for something ill defined, ABC asks for clarification - they dont get a reply - but the ABC just goes ahead and actions it to their best understanding! 👏🥳eg righttoknow.org.au/request/cos

the only positive example i have ever seen of someone being a 'free man on the land' on @RightToKnowAu@twitter.com - a water authority just decided to give up on an FOI application fee (something i think should not exist anyway) rather than deal. good on you steven. righttoknow.org.au/request/i_a

really enjoying using the moonlight nvidia shield streaming client and @launchboxapp@twitter.com BigBox mode together. tis a great combination.
