The compose window on Twitter allows you to draft a whole thread at once. If your client cannot do this, switch to a better one. You can move stuff around and insert new tweets in between. When you are done, you publish it all at once.

If there isn't enough space left to finish your sentence, rephrase it or simply move it to a new tweet. You do not have to fill all of the 280 characters every time.

If you were writing a longer text, you would use paragraphs. In a Twitter thread, each tweet is like a paragraph. You use it to make one point and it should be self-contained.

Threads are inconvenient for me when people break mid-sentence into a new tweet. This is what makes it hard to read in the Twitter web interface or in a client. Just don't do this. Use short, coherent sentences for each thought you have.

You know what annoys me most about Twitter threads? It's the replies asking some bot account to "unroll". Here are some hints on how to structure threads that are meant to be read in a Twitter client.🧵

Was soll das eigentlich, dass ich im Online-Banking für die Suche in Umsätzen älter als 90 Tage eine TAN brauche? Dagegen kann ich problemlos ohne TAN alle Kontoauszüge der letzten Jahre als PDF herunterladen. Da ist halt dieselbe Information drin.

If you use Android with an ultra-wide 21:9 display, this is the best solution to fix fullscreen on YouTube. By default top/bottom of the video will be cut off. stackoverflow.com/a/66488398/6

The data was most probably acquired by systematically querying for phone numbers. I checked my privacy settings and "Who can look you up using the phone number you provided?" was set to "Everyone". The other values in the record are from my public profile only.

The last few days I have received SMS spam. I know my phone number was in the and the faked senders also are from the data dump as well.
If this is possible, why did spammers not just use random numbers before? The chance to hit an assigned number seems high?

had this nice idea of using German and English… but why didn't they assign a unique language to each tribe? I mean, living in the woods for 40 years, but the kids learned a foreign language and speak with perfect grammar? 🤔

I wasted time today to figure out how to download and extract the squashfs for a Snap package in order to avoid installing snapd for this. But just as I am finished with a script, I notice the developer also provides an AppImage that works just fine. 🙄👍

Looks like RaMBLE - Bluetooth LE Mapper is no longer available from Google Play Store?! No results in search and the app page returns a 404. I still have it installed, and can even see it in store when logged in: play.google.com/store/apps/det
Hey @CTXIS@twitter.com, any information about that?

Es war ein Fehler, nicht einfach gleich bei allen zu impfen. Diese Einschränkung auf <65 Jahren trotz einer EU-weiten Zulassung ohne Einschränkungen hat diese Debatte um unterschiedliche Qualität der Impfstoffe doch überhaupt erst angefeuert.

Landing today with @NASAPersevere@twitter.com on Mars.

Looks like Twitter for Android doesn't want to display the animated GIF as profile picture anymore. Is it finally time to upload a new one after only 13 years? 😟

Today I learned Backblaze B2 has multiple data centers for some time, but the region selection is per account. The only way to transfer data between them is to create a completely new account and upload everything once again… 🙄
