The latest stage of Twitter enshittification: I no longer see the vast majority of my mentions, unless I go back through my tweets and open each one in its own tab. Whether that's because the posters aren't paying for Blue or because I'm not is a mystery.
But boy, does it feel like a sea-change. Twitter has always done a so-so job of showing you the posts from the people you follow - that is, treating your subscriptions as a suggestion, rather than a directive.
But the mentions tab *was* reliable - if someone spoke directly to you, you would see it.

The decision to hide the things people explicitly direct at you is a profound act of contempt for Twitter users.

It recasts our conversations as incidental training data for ads.

#WEWS is showing you how @OurStreetsApp is helping @VisionZeroCLE, @ohiocitytweets, @Bike_CLE, and @CLEforTransit make #Cleveland #ABetterLand.

Follow this #thread for a Reporter's Notebook on what we witnessed in just 15 minutes in downtown #Cle.…

@OurStreetsApp @VisionZeroCLE @ohiocitytweets @Bike_CLE @CLEforTransit 12:43 pm – We walk up to the @GCRTA station on Euclid near #PublicSquare where two cars were parked in traffic. While the cars were there (we think they were getting food from the restaurant nearby) no traffic could pass while the bus loaded/unloaded passengers. #WEWS (2/x)
@OurStreetsApp @VisionZeroCLE @ohiocitytweets @Bike_CLE @CLEforTransit @GCRTA 12:44 pm – 1 car pulls away but the other one is still blocking traffic. In 15 minutes, there were rarely a few moments when there weren’t cars parked here with drivers appear to leave to get food. The cut out was filled with the same cars/construction trucks. #WEWS (3/x)
