“@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.

Twitter image size suffixes – via: Making silly #latex jokes is much more fun than doing final tweaks in my thesis on #coeffects…

Posted by jpluimers on 2017/08/18

Twitter stores images on twimg.com in various sizes.

You specify the size by adding a colon plus suffix to the URL. No colon plus suffix means a default size.

Suffixes you can use see to come from the media entity in Entities in Objects | Twitter Developers:

  • thumb
  • small
  • medium
  • large

There is one undocumented size: orig

The default size seems to be medium.

Examples (full images below):

media entity observed size URL
thumb 150×150 https://pbs.twimg.com/media/CiMNh9rWEAAdM6Q.png:thumb
small 340×325 https://pbs.twimg.com/media/CiMNh9rWEAAdM6Q.png:small
medium 600×573 https://pbs.twimg.com/media/CiMNh9rWEAAdM6Q.png:medium
(none) 600×573 https://pbs.twimg.com/media/CiMNh9rWEAAdM6Q.png
large 1024×979 https://pbs.twimg.com/media/CiMNh9rWEAAdM6Q.png:large
orig 1600×1529 https://pbs.twimg.com/media/CiMNh9rWEAAdM6Q.png:orig

Thanks to Thomas Petricek [WayBack] who poked fun last year on Twitter [WayBack] at both LaTeX and O RLY (the image meme [WayBack], not the text meme)
