Twitter feed grudgingly added #

New blog entries are now automatically posted to @tinyapps on Twitter via IFTTT. There will be no plaintive entreaties to "Follow me on Twitter!" or other such nonsense. But if you prefer Twitter over RSS (I can't imagine why), updates will be available there.

Why the curmudgeonly acquiescence after all these years? The @tinyapps handle (which was secured mamy years ago, then lost to a squatter through disuse, and finally reclaimed several years ago before being promptly and purposely ignored again), was mentioned by @bvckup. I had also recently read a comment on Hacker News about the evils of Twitter handle squatting. Given that I generally take a rather dim view of domain name squatting, it was clearly time to use the handle or loose it.
