You Can Read Twitter With Gnus

Remember just the other week when I almost got Gnus to read Twitter? But not quite?


Anyway, it was a whole thing. The use case was pretty simple: Just read a single Twitter thread sensibly, without the endless clickery. But it *sniff* didn’t work for bigger threads.

But now Johann Klähn fixed it! By using Nitter instead!

The results can be found on Microsoft Github.

Just look:

For longer threads, it’s really slow, of course, so … But Gnus does keep track of what you’ve read if you do:

(setq gnus-suppress-duplicates t
          gnus-save-duplicate-list t)

Such useful!
