The Outline
Last week I asked my followers on Mastodon, the 14-month-old open source social media service that has been billed as a nicer version of Twitter, what advice they have for new users.
Motherboard
I have been on Twitter since 2008, accumulating nearly 100 thousand tweets and an inexplicable following of 42 thousand people. I tweet a lot, and I tweet often. My engagement is high. I drive decent traffic. I have been called "good at Twitter." I am not sure this is a correct assessment.

It seems every few weeks, there's some sort of new social media app or client that tries to shake things up. Twitter, for instance, as seen its own fair share of clients over the past few years for both iOS and Android. They seem to arrive a dime a dozen while not exactly packing features...
9to5Mac
With the recent news about Twitter revoking tons of options for third-party clients, we were surprised when we heard that a new client is wanting to compete in the fairly saturated market. In comes Flitter, a brand new option that is looking to be the feature rich, "one size fits all" Twitter client.

I love Chirp for its simplicity and speed. It's just a wrapper for Twitter's mobile website, but if you turn off auto-loading images, the experience is blisteringly fast and efficient.

Readme is a purposefully feature-lite Twitter reader designed to show you the tweets you signed up to see. Take back your timeline.

No interactions, no Moments, no ads, no trends, think of Readme as a media-rich RSS feed for your Twitter feed.

Want to dip into your feed, but not get involved in any threads? Take a glance through Readme.

Context Scott Riley and myself wanted to build a cut-down Twitter reader, to serve as a pseudo-RSS feed for your timeline. We called it Readme App. We used Netlify to deploy, build and host the client-side Vue.js app, and Up to deploy (and build) the Node.js API to AWS.

Since then, we've also launched YouTube Go in 14 additional countries, including Indonesia, Nigeria and Thailand, and we've seen firsthand the impact that bringing more people into the world of video can have.
