Twitter Announces New Features!

Twitter has announced new enhancements to its service in a blog post today:

In the coming months we’ll make changes to simplify Tweets including what counts toward your 140 characters, so for instance, @names in replies and media attachments (like photos, GIFs, videos, and polls) will no longer “use up” valuable characters.

It’s great that Twitter is working on giving people more space for the meat of their tweets, and obviously a much better use of their time than trying to stem the tide of horrifying abuse that occurs on their platform every damn day. But, hey, now trolls can make each tweet chock-full of more hate, so I guess it’s a super-awesome thing!

Alfred 3

Alfred, which is more or less OS X’s Spotlight on steroids, released a new version today. Whenever I’m setting up a new Mac for myself, Alfred is the second application I’ll install.1

It’s free to use the basic functionality, so you have nothing to lose by giving it a shot. Live a little, would’ja?

  1. In order, it goes Dropbox, Alfred, Hazel, then Evernote. Everything else is installed in a very willy-nilly order because I’m not that OCD.
