Pinned toot

👋 Hey, I’m Matt.

👅 I help run a software studio called @lickability, where we try to make good iOS apps for customers and clients.

🤓 I’m nerdy about , , , , , and .

🙌 I’m a white, bisexual, cis guy and I’m aware of the privileges those identities afford me. I’m looking for ways to distribute those advantages by holding up others.

❓Doing an AMA on Instagram while I wait for my delayed flight to take off. Come hang out and ask questions: instagram.com/stories/mattb

Have any of you put “Emoji” as a skill on your résumé yet?

Huge thanks to @Girly_Juice@twitter.com, @jilliangmeehan@twitter.com, @Twig777@twitter.com, @khanlou@twitter.com, and @mliberatore@twitter.com for their feedback on early drafts. They were a dream team of early readers for this piece. 🙏

Update on my theme so far: published three blog posts, shook a bunch of cocktails for friends, wrote more tweets, brewed coffee in my Chemex more at home instead of going out, made lots of plans with people I rarely see or haven’t met.

If you’ve worked on a team making software, you’ve almost certainly heard the thought-terminating cliché, “That’s impossible” hastily uttered by a programmer. But why do we jump to that?

That’s the topic of my new post: matthewbischoff.com/impossible

I feel a certain ineffable kinship with other B&W avatar people.

When you can tell who has a crush on whom just from their twitter interactions, that’s called reading the TLeaves. 🍵🍁

For a piece I’m working on: What are some examples of software that engineers thought was impossible to implement before someone did it?

Citations and RTs would be super helpful. 🙏

Somehow ended up more dressed up, but simultaneously more disheveled later in the night. t.co/JXgKJNHWJt

I guess it’s not just me that’s thinking about the parts of email culture that still suck, because today @TaylorLorenz@twitter.com wrote about quitting email altogether. theatlantic.com/technology/arc

Someone sent me some cocktail coupes from my wishlist for my birthday and I’m still not sure who it was. If they were from you, thanks! 🍸
