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 .

Citations and RTs would be super helpful. 🙏

Somehow ended up more dressed up, but simultaneously more disheveled later in the night.

I guess it’s not just me that’s thinking about the parts of email culture that still suck, because today wrote about quitting email altogether.

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! 🍸
