“twitter lite” “not available in your country” – Google Search

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/11/27

Need to figure out how to install: “twitter lite” “not available in your country” – Google Search.

Failing steps from [WayBack] Twitter vs Twitter Lite: Is Lite App Worth it?, but it might actually be the app sans APK.

On my reading list:

Searching old Twitter posts

Posted by jpluimers on 2020/11/02

I got a bit tired of scrolling back to a known date for posts (as having a couple of 100 tweets visible really makes browsers slooooooooooooooow), so I wondered if you could limit a date range. Yes you can! There are even more options, and there is even a special search page for that:

You can use all these from the regular search as well as per [WayBack] Find Your Old Tweets: How to See Your First Tweet | WordStream.

A was too lazy to find all the possible keywords myself, so used [WayBack] How to use advanced Twitter search queries (with examples!) | Union Metrics (and a few others I found later) to make this list:

keword/prefix meaning/values
include word or phrase
if it is an account: includes tweets from, mentions and retweets of that account
negate: exclude this word or phrase
@ mentions of an account, but not tweets from it
# hashtag
lang: two-letter ISO 639-1 language code from [WayBack] What languages can I limit report results to? – Union Metrics Help Desk;
might actually be any BCP 47 IETF language tag
near: region (country, city)
within: distance around center of region (at least ##mi for miles and ##km for kilometers are supported)
since: date, including the since date
until: date, excluding the until date
to: reply-tweets to an account (which does not allow an @)
from: tweets from an account (which does not allow an @)
filter: at least recognises filter:links to only returns tweets having links
:( searches for negative attitudes (it recognises many negative emoticons)
:) searches for negative attitudes (it recognises many positive emoticons)
? searches for questions
source: at least recognises source:twitterfeed to only return tweets posted via twitterfeed
OR include multiple words or phrases

 

A few tips of things to avoid:

  • same start/finish dates: that makes the range 0 days and not display any tweets at all
  • too long date range: browsers do not like having many tweets visible at the same time

So this does not work: https://twitter.com/search?l=&q=from%3Ajpluimers%20since%3A2020-01-01%20until%3A2020-01-01&src=typd

But this does: https://twitter.com/search?l=&q=from%3Ajpluimers%20since%3A2020-01-01%20until%3A2020-01-02&src=typd

You can even reclaim your time-line on a specific date: just increase the date by one day: https://twitter.com/search?f=tweets&vertical=default&q=filter%3Afollows%20until%3A2020-01-02%20-filter%3Areplies&src=typd

Three really cool things on that last URL

  • it shows as the “old fashioned” (not mangled by Twitter because of popularity/advertisements/etc) way
  • you can apply it for the current date as well (just remember to add one day!)
  • if you do, it automatically shows if there are updates

Hmm, maybe I should make a redirect that always shows your timeline for today in the non-mangled way (:

Some more links I found during this search:

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

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… “

“@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.
