And we are back*, baby!
* with the limitation on popular tweets for now
So they are all green right now, and the fetching tweets part works from my computer and CI, but not from any of the servers... The approach of fetching tweets from the embeds doesn't seem to work....
FML, and back to the drawing board!
Just hooked up bird.makeup to tracing software for the first time and it's really fascinating!
For exemple, this is an histogram of how fast Twitter answers queries for recent posts by an account.
Look how slow it is! There are a few speedy one at 50~ms, but most are >300ms, which would indicate that they are not cached.
I would have thought it was the other way around, most accounts cached a few that have posted recently that are not cached
New little feature on bird.makeup this weekend: the account page will now display the number of followers a user has, and also in which server that account is the most popular.
Hope this will help users find more niche servers that host the communities they want to be part of! Also if you are on a server like mastodon.social that bans bird.makeup and you want to move, this is now my recommended way to find a new home
With the profile functionality of bird.makeup, I made sure that replicated accounts would be displayed as bots. Unfortunately, my main iOS client @ivory and @email@example.com don’t display it at all, just the web does. I think displaying more prominently the bots status would really help the platform!

There is some action on #Ethereum these days!
They chose to highlight writing LinkedIn posts with their new AI as one of the main use-case lol
So I have made the switch on bird.makeup to native links for QT so that @firstname.lastname@example.org can display them as a QT. Weirdly they work as a link that stays within the app but they don't display the QT itself when the post come from bird.makeup.
Still an improvement, but is there someone working on icecube that can help get it perfect?
Graph looks dramatic too!
