No Dignity, No Communication, No Trust

Craig Hockenberry:

What bothers me about Twitterrific’s final day is that it was not dignified. There was no advance notice for its creators, customers just got a weird error, and no one is explaining what’s going on. We had no chance to thank customers who have been with us for over a decade. Instead, it’s just another scene in their ongoing shit show.

But I guess that’s what you should expect from a shitty person.

About a year before the acquisition of Twitter was closed, the company was reacquainting itself with third-party developers, including those which make general-purpose clients. It has been days since those developers have been kicked off the platform in a deliberate and targeted manner. Twitter has yet to offer any explanation or even a public acknowledgement of this change. Why should anyone trust its management?
