This is seriously something that happened earlier today on Twitter. I asked what to blog about, since my last post here was in May, and I could see I got a reply, but not what that reply was.
There was no “unavailable” placeholder or anything, no “potentially offensive” click barrier, just a non-zero counter. Logging out, switching to private mode, no difference. Then @Purrpleneko1 replied, I went to their profile to check their replies, and found what was being hidden from me: a perfectly good suggestion that unfortunately fell outside of my interests and expertise — I’m more into software than hardware. Why was this being hidden from me? I could see their other replies just fine!
So yeah. Go home, Twitter. You’re drunk on algorithms.
