I’ve been waiting patiently for the Honda Civic Hybrid to be released in North America. Just read that it’ll be a 2024 model now. Why is Honda so slow to release such an important car in the US? It really sucks that US market only cares about larger vehicles.

Now is a good time to see if you're using Twitter to log into any services. Wouldn't want to be locked out of any service if Twitter closes shop and doesn't tell anyone. Go to More > Settings and Support > Settings and Privacy > Security and account access > Apps and Sessions.

An update from Iconfactory: State of the Twitterverse. Seems like Twitterrific on macOS is still functioning, iOS is not.

Looking at connected apps in my Twitter profile, Tweetbot and Twitterrific iOS have both been removed. I guess their keys were revoked?

Third-party iOS Twitter app Aviary still works. This seems like a pretty targeted attack.

Looks like all third-party Twitter clients can't authenticate or log in to Twitter. None of the developers have heard back from Twitter as to whether or not it's a bug or a "new rule".
