I can’t quite figure out who the former Twitter employee is in this Vanity Fair piece throwing Del Harvey under the bus, but they are a shitty fucking person https://www.vanityfair.com/news/2018/02/how-twitter-lost-the-internet-war/amp?__twitter_impression=true
Had forgotten all about this. Found while cleaning my shop.
Just a reminder, I took the NBC data from the 200K troll tweets and put them in a searchable sql database https://safe-basin-37488.herokuapp.com/ (In light of Mueller indicting 13 🇷🇺 )
Sure, I’ll procrastinate this morning taking this NBC troll tweet data https://www.nbcnews.com/tech/social-media/now-available-more-200-000-deleted-russian-troll-tweets-n844731?cid=sm_npd_nn_tw_ma and plug it into @simonw’s Datasette https://github.com/simonw/datasette
Couple that with the S3 offload for images I’m already doing, it’s looking like a nice path towards serving responsible image file weight without a lot of manual twiddling.
Caveat is there is a $9 a month fee, but that coves 1000 optimizations a month. I won’t be posting anywhere near that many images, even if I do it across multiple sites. I’m on the free trial but it’s a bit vague what the trial length is or if there is a certain number of optimizations before the fee kicks in. Then I’ll decide if the efficiency is worth a couple of cups of coffee a month.
@olemoritz any chance you could point me to where I could learn more about the quality filter used in the grayscale example for the photos library in Pythonista? http://omz-software.com/pythonista/docs/ios/photos.html
Love this gig page for @ChuckProphet http://www.chuckprophet.com/gigs complete with blinking dot for current city.
