Twitter thread unroll so you can read tweet storm on one page without distraction: ThreadReaderApp.com a.k.a. tttthreads.comtttthreads.com

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/04/24

I am have been using ThreadReaderApp.com – and more so since G+ went belly up – but forgot to schedule a post on it, so here it is:

[WayBack] Show HN: Unroll Twitter threads for easy reading | Hacker News:

I made this new service called Thread Reader that given a first tweet from a twitter thread will return a carefully designed web page with the full [WayBack] Tweetstorm unrolled.

It comes with two “bots” – one that answer people who mention “@tttthreads unroll” replying to the first tweet of a threads and give them a link to the unrolled story – the second that search twitter for “#threads” and check if it is a valid thread (> 5 tweets) and if so post a unrolled version back to the author (limited to a few post per hour to avoid to be too spammy)

The stack is good old LAMP using the PHP silex micro framework and of course Twitter API

[WayBack] Thread Reader Thread Reader helps you discover and read the best of Twitter Threads

“@jpluimers @matijn ik lees miv tweede kerstdag van 7 tot 12 uur, matijn van 13 tot 19 uur, michel van 20 tot 24 uur”

Voor zometeen als we in het [Archive.is] Top 2000 Café | Beeld en Geluid zijn: [WayBack] Carmen Verheul on Twitter: “ik lees miv tweede kerstdag van 7 tot 12 uur, matijn van 13 tot 19 uur, michel van 20 tot 24 uur… “

De [WayBack] Over de NOS – Onze mensen: Nieuwslezers op Twitter:

In de nacht is er de “nieuwslezer van dienst”: [WayBackMatijn Nijhuis on Twitter: “de nachtlezer die voor alle zenders leest

Carmen en Matijn zijn sowieso een stel apart (:

PS: Het is al vaak door me heen gegaan. De lijm van Radio 2 zit in de nieuwslezers: de nieuwslezers hebben behalve een perfecte verbinding met de DJ’s, ook de verbinding tussen de diverse programma’s. Dat zorgt voor een totaal-sfeer over de dag heen wat bij andere zenders goeddeels ontbreekt. Wat inmiddels ook helpt is dat diverse DJ’s aan het einde de DJ van het volgende programma live in de uitzending hebben, maar de nieuwslezers vormen nog steeds de basis.

Twitter doesn’t allow certain characters in your profile, but doesn’t tell which ones it dislikes

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/11/09

“Bio can’t include ‘invalid characters'”

Oh well: some profile characters give you a “Bio can’t include ‘invalid characters'” error.

This is forbidden:

Makes things work in .NET, Win32, x64, C#, SQL, Visual Studio and Delphi. Married to a cancer survivor. Responsible for brother with IQ<50. @AdestMusica member.

But this is allowed:

Makes things work in .NET, Win32, x64, C#, SQL, Visual Studio and Delphi. Married to a cancer survivor. Responsible for brother with IQᐸ50. @AdestMusica member.

I solved it thanks to these links:

I’m not the only one bumping into this; you can not put imperial height either: [WayBackeve peyser on Twitter: “WHY WONT TWITTER LET ME PUT MY HEIGHT IN MY BIO I SMELL A CONSPIRACY https://t.co/4CCNgNLTFu”

I tested ‘ and ” so they are not invalid any more.

TweeterID – Twitter ID and username converter

Posted by jpluimers on 2018/10/12

Especially HTC devices used to store part of the context information like this:

<HTCData><Twitter>id:11111111/friendof:00000000</Twitter></HTCData>

[WayBack] TweeterID – Twitter ID and username converter:

Convert any Twitter account’s username or @handle into its respective Twitter ID, or convert ID to username

You can also do the Twitter ID to @handle conversion by URL (at the time of writing, neither existed, which is intentional: replace your own ID there) [WayBack] permalinks – URL link to Twitter user with ID, not name – Stack Overflow:

I could not find a twitter URL that does the conversion the other way around.
