Aargh, ultra niche question but did anyone see a toot on here over the last few weeks about how Elmo decided to turn off the twitter microservice that's responsible for exposing statistics about different device use to post tweets (eg "sent from iphone/android/web" whatever), and how this had some important negative consequences for digital sociology scholars? It was an amazing example of a thing I'm writing about and i've lost it!

@mistertim I remember a bunch of these toots (many with birdsite screengrabs), but I believe I didn't bookmark any of them.

@acousticmirror haha yes, i'm in exactly the same situation! I need to get better about organising/saving the interesting things I see 😂
