The problem with doing a client for this is lack of scale. Assuming there's 100k active users, 50% run iOS/Mac, probably < 10% of those would pay for an app. I'm thinking ~5k copies which sucks compared to the effort required.

🐓 and 🥚 I know.

@pth even if your math isn’t conservative that’s still $100K assuming you charge $20.

But the platform is growing. That $100K is followed pretty soon with another $100K...

And we’re not asking you to rewrite. Just to make a good faith minimal viable port.

Do something quick. Call it a preview. If there’s interest (and $) then do the work to really make it shine here.


@pth anyways. On twitter you’re scrambling for crumbs from a company that at best tolerates you and at worst is actively trying to fuck you over.

With some effort and a bit of risk you could easily be the de facto app for iOS and macOS here.

You want to be scrambling for scraps from Twitter for the next 10 years?
