Every hashtag on every post on every platform should ALWAYS be camel case. I made this to illustrate how screenreaders read hashtags depending on whether they are lowercase or camel case.

It’s a small thing that all of us can do to build a more inclusive, accessible internet for all. Please take the time to use camel case.

It's a designer's job to design for people who use
- screens
- screen readers
- screen magnifiers
- touch screens
- trackpads
- voice input
- keyboard-only
(a non exhaustive list)

If any friends who have read “Inclusive Design Communities” that are willing to leave ratings on GoodReads or StoryGraph, here are the links. I could use your help in getting this book to more aspiring and current designers. Devs, PMs, and tech managers, too.

If you want to use a friend-finder tool that works well, but also care about great vibes, take a look at:

A great way to find your Twitter Social graph, in a delightful windows-95 look. Pretty much the same functionality as Movetodon, but it's API luckily still works.

The @Iconfactory has 16.1k “followers” on Twitter and currently about 4.1k here on Mastodon. Our last post received a whopping 9 likes and 3 retweets on Twitter and an amazing 287 favorites and 163 boosts here on Mastodon.

This has been said before by many people but Twitter isn’t worth your time any more. People don’t SEE what you’re saying there, even if they actually follow you. The service is in big, BIG trouble.

Also, thx for following @Iconfactory here, we appreciate all of you 💕🖖

@siracusa This was a Dark Tower: The Drawing of the Three reference, right?

Just a reminder to all those that grew of in the 80s, that the most epic celebration of that era of movies and music exists. This will take you back for sure: youtu.be/iq0t5WQxS4M

We went from it being a scandal for a CEO to fire people over Zoom to the biggest tech companies logging you out of Slack or email with a “you’ve been laid off” error message as the norm within a year.

If you’re a former Twitterrific user who is waiting for … Mastorrific … but want to help keep the Icon Factory team solvent against jerks who are requesting refunds from Apple in the wake of Twitter turning off their API, you can head over to their Patreon, and get some cool benefits like use of Wallaroo as well. patreon.com/iconfactory

I had Twitterrific installed since my first iPhone and Mac, even though I used Tweetbot. I never changed the stock wallpaper but now I just purchased a yearly subscription on Wallaroo. Also go check Tot (it’s awesome) and support this guys @bigzaphod , @chockenberry , @gedeonm

Hey fedipals! I'm looking to fill a senior-web-developer-shaped hole in someone's awesome workplace. Pass it on.

When you’re writing something and struggling on the words to add to make it clearer, consider taking words away.

Turns out that Adobe is collecting all of its customers' pictures into a machine learning training set.

This is opt-out, not opt-in so if you use Lightroom, for example, it defaults to adding all of your photos to the set.

If these are unpublished pictures, work-in-progress, etc. they'll still be analysed as soon as they're synced.

I've been using Lightroom to sync photos from my Windows desktop to my iPad. Now I need to reconsider that.

My two favorite apps right now are Readwise Reader (currently in beta) (readwise.io/read ) and Mela recipe manager (mela.recipes/ ) Both are really well done in terms of UI, interactions, and features. I definitely recommend checking them out.
