Twitter APIs and Third Party Apps

Tonight on GeekNights, we consider the demise of Twitter APIs necessary for third party apps to work as intended, signaling the potential (perhaps inevitable) demise of all third-party apps as Twitter desperately tries to monetize itself. In similarly bleak news, Netflix is experimenting with ads, and Twitch Prime drops ad-free viewing.

In some better news, Flamecon was, as always, amazing, Nvidia is bringing the RTX2000 series of video cards with real-time raytracing for games, and Intel is getting into the GPU business.

Why Twitter Can't Monetize

Tonight on GeekNights, we consider why Twitter is so dead set on ruining itself to make money in all the wrong ways. In the news, Rym finally bought a phone (The z5c US Edition), and also an expensive knob. Scott is looking for a good solution to the pain of an aging shell. Facebook shuts down Parse. The dangers of IaaS. Machine learning is getting scarily powerful.

Rym was on an amazing horror panel hosted by Kris Straub at PAX South. The GeekNights Patreon is nearing its first goal!
