I donated to the @firstname.lastname@example.org last year, I am not OK with this. Authors need to be compensated.

It’s super infuriating seeing those people using the masks wrong (maybe even dangerously wrong) while health care professionals have no masks available.
People touching their phone, then touching their mouths by reaching to it from the bottom, pushing the mask away. INFURIATING.
So a lot of people have asked me about cloth masks. I don’t really have a strong opinion about cloth masks. I DO have some rather strong opinions about HOW to wear masks. (1/n)
Friends, I learned last night over Zoom drinks that ya'll're baking so much that there's a shortage of yeast?! I, your local frumpy yeast geneticist have come here to tell you this: THERE IS NEVER A SHORTAGE OF YEAST. Here's where I'm a viking. Instructions below.
Gosh! Hell is freezing over! https://twitter.com/pitermach/status/1244246046211018754
Hi. I designed some coronavirus travel posters for you. Stay the F* home. Love you all.
🧵 Hm. @email@example.com’s performance leaderboard makes me awfully competitive. I don’t like that 😂
Currently a 99/100 score (rank 131!) and the only thing I probably can do is move CSS inline (which I don’t want) and maybe some server shenanigans (which I’m not good at doing).

News from virtual events frontlines...
I’m in 5-6 event calls daily.
In meetings today, all the paid events doubled/tripled in size when they went fully online.
Quote from one meeting: “We didn’t realize how much we were leaving on the table.”
Some are never going back.
A thread on how anchors like @email@example.com @DavidMuir@twitter.com @NorahODonnell@twitter.com @LesterHoltNBC@twitter.com might revise how they're holding the White House accountable, based on the editorial independence demonstrated by their predecessors in 1979-1980 during the Iran Hostage Crisis (1/7)
I hate it when people say technology work like “magic” as it devalues the hard work going into planning and implementing it.
+1 The use of the phrase "wizardry", no matter how innocently uttered, also perpetuates the idea that technology works because of inexplicable magic, rather than as a result of robust design and engineering processes https://twitter.com/hminto/status/1243539780220194818
I _really_ hope there’s either another shoe to drop (i.e. a way to make SW persistent again) or a reversal of the policy. This seems unintended, but OTOH it feels like it would be exploited by track-friendly devs in the end anyway. *sigh*
Apple’s attack on service workers
I fully endorse @adactio’s take on this.
