@holman tweets

This is an archive of most of the tweets I've made from @holman.

It isn't all of my tweets, though. Twitter's API limits mean you can only get 3200 tweets back at a maximum, anytime, ever. So once you've gone past that 3200th tweet, you can never ever see that tweet again, either via twitter.com or via any other third-party service.

The reason Twitter does this is mostly because Twitter does not give a fuck about your data. That's unfortunate. I wrote about this a year ago, although nothing has changed since then. Admittedly, it could be because Twitter doesn't give a fuck about your data, but it also could be because they couldn't ship themselves out of a UPS store, much less ship any interesting product in the last year.

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
