I’m experimenting with providing cached versions of some Twitter links. At the moment, only the main tweets are cached. I’m working on ensuring all the links have cached versions.
This is definitely how I think of things. If there's paid parking that targets high but not 100% occupancy it means that there will always be a space available. Same thing with a congestion fee!
Fitting that it was Canadian politicians, considering the ongoing fires.
A tax on land is the best way to tax, Russia had an opportunity to adopt it, squandered it. China also completely eschews anything even close to an LVT
The choice to significantly restrict the number of tweets anyone can view per day is pretty weird, there are tons of theories. Someone found that if you load Twitter logged out right now, it makes about 10 queries per second to emit error messages, perhaps someone at Twitter misinterpreted this as a spike in scraping activity? Maybe Musk decided to stop paying Twitter's Amazon S3 bills? But they still want to be rated 5 stars on the app stores. Humorously, Twitter's contract with Google to host some of Twitter's services on GCP was up June 30th.
This all started because Musk didn't like how the Hunter Biden laptop was handled by twitter: things got out of hand, every time though, folks say that this time Twitter will die. Maybe limiting everyone to reading 600 tweets is a product innovation, helps us all break our addiction.
