Leaving the Twitter nest
Twitter had never really captured my interest. I used to be, and still mostly am, a private person who rarely shares what they're up to with the broader world. This led to me tweeting very little and primarily using it to doomscroll and retweet anything that caused a reaction in me.
With that said, there were some good moments, either inspired tweets I've retweeted or when I really gave it a go and tried to make it work. This will be a guided tour of everything that made me laugh or reminded me of something good when going through my Twitter archive, so enjoy.
Going forward, I doubt I'll use Twitter for anything other than complaining to companies. I've moved to geekyaubergine.com, which is powered by Micro.blog (a community/platform I'd highly recommend looking into).
Shocking Straight Brexit Banana. As soon as I saw this, I knew I had to reference the straight banana rumours surrounding Brexit.
These first few tweets are cringe, enjoy
I need to get a good photo for my avatar.
The first tweet, how boring
I do love it when my program's finally start to look promising. #Python
So, it would appear last night that I impulse bought PrisonArchitect. One of my best buys this year, fantastic game. Especially for an alpha
Ok, maybe not cringe, but it is still a very good game
I need to get a 5 x 5 x 5 Rubik's cube.
I have one now and love it; sue me.
Senior Maths Challenge today, could be a laugh.
God, was I cool, maths challanges, so funny hahhahahhaa
I've missed #objective-c nice to finally get back to it.
The worst opinion I've ever had
I swear my bank account cries every time there's a steam sale.
Universal truths. Still the most I've spent in a steam sale
Just seen a duck sneeze. Not sure what is was expecting, but not that.
I wish I remembered what it sounded like
Listening to Les Mis and programming, I call that a win.
It's a vibe
The 'calm' before the storm.
I miss Disney. Looking out over Crescent Lake heading from EPCOT to the Yacht and Beach Club/Swan and Dolphin.
If I'm not mistaken, this is just outside the bathrooms in Adventureland
Glad to say that my UCAS application is done!
I remember that, screw that form
The build is starting to come together (the parts at least)
Java + MySQL is a buddle of fun...
Turns out I've never been able to spell
I love it when you find a bug, add code to print info, and the bug is magically fixed. Gotta love #debugging
Nothing quiet like revision and classical music
How did I ever pass English?
A design that I've been playing around with for @[email protected]
Glad to see my design skills have improved a little since then
And now we wait #iVoted
It was not worth the wait
Doing a hard reboot on a train because it's stuck, that's a new one on me
This was interesting
Oxygen Not Included by @klei is amazing, can't wait to see the finished product.
I had some good opinions, and this was one of them. I still love this game
That time Dorris took out a tree
Semi-successful pancakes on the worst hob I've ever used
Uber got very drunk and thought a 10-minute drive would take 5 hours
I got selected for the Monzo shares scheme, so I became a proper adult and bought a whole 10 shares
Saw the new Beauty and The Beast movie
Did some walking, got a badge
Sky developer using prod keys
Got up far too early to see a very big ~boat~ship
Went to Victorious festival as a non-festival person, was alright
Cold and beautiful morning on the last working day of the year.
Funny train name
Traditional first BBQ of the year post
Traditional first BBQ of the year post (yes, it was a year between good posts)
Covid meant I couldn't go home for Christmas, so I did my first-ever roast. Very successful, all things considered, and I only set the fire alarm off once.
That time when I tried to make a Minecraft Mod
I owe a lot to this mod (maybe not my windmill design skills). I learned many programming skills on a fun project I was motivated about. It's a shame it never went further than prototypes, though it was highly ambitious.
Funny [this fact is disputed] Things/Memes

The internet is wrong, again - Chorus is the correct choice
