Twitter is suspending 70 pro-Bloomberg accounts, citing ‘platform manipulation’

"Michael R. Bloomberg’s presidential campaign has been experimenting with novel tactics to cultivate an online following, or at least the appearance of one."

"But one of these strategies — deploying a large number of Twitter accounts to push out identical messages — has backfired. On Friday, Twitter began suspending 70 accounts posting pro-Bloomberg content in a pattern that violates company rules."

"'We have taken enforcement action on a group of accounts for violating our rules against platform manipulation and spam', a Twitter spokesman said. Some of the suspensions will be permanent, while in other cases account owners will have to verify they have control of their accounts."

Twitter rolling out new 'Continue thread' option for connecting multiple tweets together | 9to5Mac

Twitter is rolling out a new feature that makes it easier to thread multiple tweets together. With this change, you can now link tweets together while you compose them.

The company announced the new feature this afternoon. When you’re composing a new tweet, you can now slide up to view your previous tweets, including your most recent post as well as older ones. Once you pick an older tweet, you’ll see a “Continue thread” button.
The way you do this seems more complicated than just @replying to your own previous tweet. And there will still be people who won't use it (naming no Piers Morgans). And it might take a while for third-party apps to decide whether to implement it.

Twitter will finally let you control who can reply to your tweets | TechRadar

At CES 2020, Twitter has revealed that it's introducing a feature that will allow you to control who can reply to your tweets.

Mashable's Karissa Bell tweeted from an event held by the company that this new feature will finally allow users to control who replies to their tweets by granting them the ability to limit replies to specific users, for example, followers or those mentioned in the tweet.

Don't want any replies at all? Apparently that option will be also be made available.

Was there any advancement in the #Twitter import, in order to import tweets (excluding mentions/replies) without that embedding style? The goal would be to mirror a Twitter account to look like an original #Friendica / #Fediverse account.
I can use nitter.net instead, but then the feed import would have to be tweaked.

Isn't it possible to just retrieve a tweets text and media? That pretty much sounds like a scraper job, but maybe the API allows this too? I think #IFTTT can get the Tweets text, not sure about the media.

‘The Anti-Facebook’: #Wikipedia co-founder launches ad-free #social #media platform

Fed up with #Facebook and #Twitter? If so, Wikipedia co-founder Jimmy Wales hopes you'll join WT:Social, a new social media platform that promises not to run advertisements or sell user data.

WT:Social features a Facebook-like feed on which users can share news or other content. But unlike Facebook, whose algorithms prioritize content that's sponsored or receiving a lot of engagement, WT:Social simply shows new content first.

About 160,000 people have signed up for WT:Social since it launched in October. The platform is free to join, but new users are put on a wait-list, which can be instantly bypassed if you donate money. WT:Social hopes to survive only on donations.
So why isn't he championing #Diaspora* / the #Federation? Hmmm...

A great function for #Friendica or some addon would be to replace links in posts automatically with urls that are more protective of privacy.

Example:
Replace all twitter.com links with links to nitter.net, this is a pure replacement and will actually result in the same embedding.
So this https://twitter.com/shoushouswelt/status/1189534064103055360 becomes this https://nitter.net/shoushouswelt/status/1189534064103055360 and the embedding still works.

There is other services like that, I don't remember the #YouTube thing at them moment.
