Since the new API is free for 15 users, another alternative could be that each user of your app would register it with Twitter instead of the developer fror every user, it would still work without it but you'd lose some features, but I don't know how annoying for the user it would be.
That's true, i thought about it actually. However, no one has even bothered to make a simple implementation that uses the new API. :/
(at least, not as far as i saw)
Like you pointed out, it's unknown if Twitter would make it as annoying as possible. (It was kind of a pain already with Corebird)
Ads aren't an issue with uBlock Origin. In general, ad blocking, besides removing often uninteresting and always distracting content, is also a must for security, as ads were shown multiple times to be an attack vector.
I agree with you, i myself block them too. Twitter thinks otherwise on the other hand... which partly explains why they're now cracking down on them.
I can't even upload images. Surely there has to be a way.
I had considered mastodon but it seems like they are even more restrictive on adult content than even twitter.
(They remove such content out right if not tagged while twitter instead flags it as NSFW if non-compliant)
I can't even promote socialism...
In addition to that, the third party clients for Linux are terrible and not even up to date. The only one updated, is completely in japanese.
I really don't want to use a web browser just for that.
Pretty much all the Windows apps for Mastodon are using C# with WPF and (worse) UWP...
