Farewell Old Twitter

Internet

This site makes heavy use of JavaScript

@twitter: If you’re using Old Twitter, we want to let you know that you’ll be upgraded to New Twitter this week.

It used to be a luxury to run a Twitter client, now it'll be a necessity if you want decent performance and/or want to avoid Gawker-esque sites that abuse JavaScript to such an extreme that they depend on entire libraries to render basic pages. She bangs, she bangs.

A coincidence that Twitter is buying these clients up?

Author bio and support

Me!

Ruben Schade is a technical writer and IaaS engineer in Sydney, Australia who refers to himself in the third person in bios. Wait, not BIOS… my brain should be EFI by now.

The site is powered by Hugo, FreeBSD, and OpenZFS on OrionVM, everyone’s favourite cloud infrastructure provider.
