n late 2006, I created one of the first twitter clients to see if I could. Made it minimalist (a command line and windows text mode) in some language I was playing with. Some others copied my code for a couple of years for their own better clients and I was pretty proud.
But what did I actually *use* Twitter for? Dumping RSS feeds onto it to help game Google. Worked from 2007-2013, so I got a lot of years making $ from increased Google visibility + stuff but then they caught on.
Then from 2013-2016, I used it to dump Vines to as I made them.
But did I ever use it the way you’re *supposed* to ? Never.
