      @manton I have considered that it’s probably better than iMessage, and more inclusive of my Android friends. I could be convinced. @justin

            @justin My network uses FB for messaging, so I don’t use Hangouts, and then the stream just seems unnecessary as yet another place to read. And I have 13K followers and get NOTHING when I post.

              @justin and you use the non-Hangouts parts?

                  Let Twitter have social media. That’s an ad business built around things that happen in public. I don’t even think it affects App․net anymore. There are so many more infrastructure problems — *tech* problems — to solve.

                    I switched to Twitter’s official Mac and iOS apps yesterday, and I have to say, I love them. The new Twitter has begun to make sense to me as an ad-supported medium, and their financials today bear that out. It’s the only actual “social media” company.

                        I am for sure still interested in this ecosystem, I just don’t need any more microblogging or messaging. But that’s the thing: I see those as features of more robust ecosystems, not places in themselves. There’s way more potential. bitcoin.app.net is big.

                            @drewcoffman It scares me. None of the people I’m reading on the matter seem very responsible.

                                  Have any writers among you sprung for Writer Pro [writer.pro] already? I want to hear stories about it.

                                        Broadcast is going to be great. Anything that helps move communication away from advertising is A-OK by me. Bravo, ADN team. https://app.net/b/wdz1v
