The fact that Trump uses a 3rd party's (Twitter's) proprietary software to mediate his interactions with the voters/citizens of the US should be an impeachable offence. Shameful. Many countries do this with these foreign (to them) corporations: Google, Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, etc. and they should be roasted for it. Have some respect for your constituents and your sovereignty.


@lightweight If I remember right, it's brazil that for a long time mandated government-use software be brazilain, and they created lua which is portuguese for moon

@emsenn didn't realise that was the genesis of Lua - very interesting...
