Warnception: Twitter Hellscape, Sensitive Content Edition.

For some reasons, Twitter has added the following to each and every post on @37prime account:

We put a warning on this Tweet because it
might have sensitive content. Appeal this
warning

Twitter
Twitter warning of sensitive content.

I do not get warning at all on my personal Twitter account. I wonder why Twitter suddenly flagged this account. Could it be a mistake or something else such as someone reporting 37prime to Twitter.

I took the screenshot above and posted it on Twitter. Knowing what I knew then, I expected Twitter to automatically put the same warning to the post. Boom there goes the sonic!

Tweet about getting a warning, gets a warning.

I “appealed” to Twitter regarding the warning on the original post and haven’t from them at the time of this post.

So, I took screenshot of the second post and made a tweet about it, expecting the warning to appear.

It’s a Warnception!

Yep, the warning is there. I could keep going on and on and on and on…

By the way, this post will be automatically tweeted, and most likely will get the same warning.

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

What The Hell, Twitter?

Twitter App Graph

Jack Marshall, writing for WSJ.com:

Twitter is now collecting information about the apps installed on users’ devices in order to better target and tailor advertising and other content to them.

WHAT?!

From Twitter:

To help build a more personal Twitter experience for you, we are collecting and occasionally updating the list of apps installed on your mobile device so we can deliver tailored content that you might be interested in.

DFQ?!

If you’re not interested in a tailored experience you can adjust your preferences at any time (read below). Additionally, if you have previously opted out of interest-based ads by turning on “Limit Ad Tracking” on your iOS device or by adjusting your Android device settings to “Opt out of interest-based ads,” we will not collect your apps unless you adjust your device settings.

I have always enabled the “Limit Ad Tracking” option on all of my iOS devices.

OS X Yosemite: Dark Menu Bar Icons

Two applications that I have floating on the Menu Bar are Dropbox and Twitter. At this point in time both Dropbox and Twitter icons on the Menu Bar do not look good in OS X Yosemite dark mode.

OS X Yosemite is still in Beta/Developer Preview. For sure a lot of applications will be updated to support the dark mode.
