  • 34. Things I’m thinking after wasting 6 hours on this Project
    Automation is making it harder to learn and share items of value on Twitter
    I wish I developed an automation tool
    Sleep disorders can explain some things, but not 131,000+ tweets
    Twitter is probably not good for insomnia
