Twitter has once again crippled third-party clients in its ongoing campaign to slowly drain the life out of them, this time removing major features.

irritating. If I can’t use Twitterrific, I won’t use Twitter much as the native app is lame.
Edit, I forgot there isn’t even a native Mac app (only, barely, an iOS app). #eyeroll

This just one reason why I left twitter.

There are many others.

Yet I found a new home for my micro blogging habit. I found a surprisingly open and welcoming group that shares a lot of links, has real discussions without yelling, and posts stuff I would not see otherwise. It feels a lot like twitter did many years ago.

“CounterSocial is the first Social Network Platform to take a zero-tolerance stance to hostile nations, bot accounts and trolls who are weaponizing OUR social media platforms and freedoms to engage in influence operations against us. And we’re here to counter it.”

There is a nice new Mac app that works with it and other “Mastodon” instances.
