Nitter Is Dead ⇥ nitter.d420.de
As Twitter becomes more insular and technically unreliable, I have increasingly turned to Nitter, which describes itself as a “free and open source alternative Twitter front-end”. It mirrors posts and profiles, does not require users to be signed in, and is faster than Twitter’s own website.
If nothing changes, all remaining instances will go down eventually: Instances rely on guest accounts, which are valid for a certain time and of which you need a ton to run a public instance. The API for this got taken down and it doesn’t look like a fluke this time.
Twitter is unfortunately still a place where newsworthy things happen. I linked to a tweet only yesterday, and I imagine that will continue so long as people keep posting things of relevance there. That is true despite instability on the site; posts, threads, and the entire site often fail to load for me, but Nitter provided an excellent fallback service. Sadly, no longer.
