Weekly curated resources for designers — thinkers and makers.

“Do you still trust Twitter? Do you feel like it is “the world’s most accurate, real-time information source and a global town square for communication?” Since October 2022, big changes have shaken up the company both internally and externally, which has led to an erosion of user trust in the platform.

  • Just normal web things
    “If something navigates like a link, let me do link things. Let me right-click on the link without it navigating so I can open the context menu that lets me do other link things (like copying link text, copying link address, etc.) Let me use the usual link keyboard shortcuts (like ctrl + click on Windows) to open a new tab. Just normal link things.”

    “It would be feasible to reduce hours of work and release workers for the pleasurable activities of free time with families and communities, but business did not support such a trajectory.”
  • Taste as gatekeeping
    “Watch out for people using “good taste” and “bad taste” as exclusionary terms. Historically, taste has been an elitist concept and intentionally kept blurry and subjective to prevent people from accessing certain places, groups, or opportunities.”
