Discover and read the best of Twitter Threads about #Slack

One of the more fun #automations I find, is the Google Assistant - Slack automation.

in short:

You talk to your phone, and by doing that, your slack status is changed.

1. Choose your app, and the trigger, in #Zapier. Image
2. Select the phrase you want to serve as trigger.

So, what do you say to your Google Assistant, that makes your #slack status change.

Choose a couple, so when you just phrase it differently, it still triggers the desired action. Image

The instant that governments rolled out #relief funds so #quarantine-shuttered firms wouldn't fail and #covid-furloughed workers wouldn't starve, execs started rubbing their forelegs together, planning to raise prices and blame #inflation caused by giving money to The Poors. 1/ Humpty Dumpty, smashed and crying at the bottom of a wall.

They weren't exactly subtle about it: the CEOs of America's largest companies got on their quarterly investor calls and chortled about the willingness of "consumers" to blame inflation for the price-hikes they were cramming down their throats:… 3/

Here's the #inflation story you're expected to believe (advance warning: this story is entirely false): America gave the poors too much money during the lockdown and now the #economy is awash in #FreeMoney, which made those poors so rich that now they're refusing to work. 1/ A vintage postcard illustration of the Federal Reserve build

That means the economy isn't making anything anymore. With all that extra money and all those missing workers, prices are skyrocketing.

To hear ghouls like @LHSummers tell it, there is only one answer to this. 3/

Mini-rant on organising #slack channels. Within a section, there's only 3 ways to sort. "Recent activity", "alphabetically", and "priority". The "priority" sort is a really stupid name for what it is. It is "frequency" as opopsed to "recentness". 1/n
The word "priority" implies importance and Slack has decided that if you go somewhere frequently, that somewhere is "important" and thus "priority" sort puts frequently-visited things at the top. But this is NOT what "priority" means. 2/n
I'm on twitter a lot. Is it "important"? In "priority" sort, Twitter would shoot straight to #1 on my phone. But my banking apps (which I probably use 2-3 times a week) are more 'important'. Likewise my #Slack channels. 3/n

Hello @Uber! We know breaches suck. Wanted to reach out and support with some interesting information on the #uberhack. If you need any more details, feel free to contact us.

On September 16, vx-underground posted screenshots with evidence of access to #Uber internal systems, including #SentinelOne, #Slack and #AWS. The screenshots have been attributed to the threat actor teapots2022. Image
During Group-IB’s analysis of the screenshots, interesting artifacts have been found in the recently downloaded files tray. First 2 files are zip archives and have the same format: "LOGID-\d{7} with names LOGID-4952307" and "LOGID-4953756". Image

Are you having trouble with creating #UTM links? You can use the ''Campaign URL Builder'' website. It is free and useful. 🙌

Let's check this out together in 5 minutes!…

For the "website URL" field, use the link of the page which you will track its performance.

The "campaign ID" field represents specific #ad campaigns.
Which platform provides you traffic and directs people to your link? It is your "campaign source."

For example, #Google, #Slack announcement, or partner's weekly newsletter. 🤜🤛

This week on my podcast, I read "Give Me Slack," my latest column for @Medium, about the second (and third, and fourth) chances I got growing up, and how scary it is that my kid - and yours - won't get those chances.… A vintage Church of Subgenius ad, which asks 'Are you abnorm
From the fourth through the eighth grade, I attended a groovy, publicly funded alternative school in Toronto. Much of the student work was self-directed, and they even kicked us out of school on alternating Wednesday afternoons, sending us out into the world to learn.
I started my high-school in a very straight-laced traditional institution, but I hated it.

The KPIs and OKRs

A Key Performance Indicator (KPI) is a measurable value that demonstrates how effectively a company is achieving key business objectives. Organizations use KPIs to evaluate their success at reaching targets.
The acronym OKR stands for Objectives and Key Results, a popular goal management framework that helps companies implement and execute strategy. The benefits of the framework include a better focus on results that matter, increased transparency, and better (strategic) alignment.
OKR achieves this by organizing employees and the work they do around achieving common Objectives.

*Sends in invisible ink*: #Slack seems redundant.
Please explain the benefits, because I’m not seeing it.
I read multiple articles every morning, look through hundreds of e-mails every month & manage multiple social media accounts. #Slack is cute, but I’m good.

Looks #Snowflake #Jfrog #SumoLogic #Asana have all built their startups around betting on an easily replicable idea.

These are the startups that have filed S-1s recently on path to an IPO.

But the problem is pretty clear isn't it? - Easily Repicable idea

No wonder they list the tech giants as their threats. For eg Asana will be in the same boat as #Slack in a year from now just as it is facing heat from Microsoft.

Even a new startup can easily replicate the same idea and business model of say #confluent or #Jfrog (2/n)
As I have said before to ward the threat they should be diversifying and build products in adjacent market.

Take the fight to the tech gaints themselves. For eg #Jfrog should release a competitor to upcoming Windows package manager.

#Asana should go against #SharePoint (3/N)

Here's a twitter version of my @OBF_BOSC #BOSC2020 #BCC2020 talk about @nf_core 🚀

@nf_core is a community effort to collect best-practice analysis pipelines built using @nextflowio. They run on almost any computational infrastructure and bundle all software requirements.
There are @nf_core community guidelines to ensure that all pipelines are consistent and reproducible. To help pipeline users and developers there is a command-line helper tool ( and of course we create and maintain a set of pipelines 🧑‍🔧

There are currently 25 pipelines with stable releases. Each release gets a @ZENODO_ORG DOI and tagged @docker
images for ultimate reproducibility.

We aim for one @nf_core pipeline per analysis type, collaborating on adding new features for the whole community.

Public SaaS companies have been doing well despite the pandemic. Median revenue multiple for valuations is about 13.3x. This is up almost 20% from pre-pandemic levels. Companies, however, have been lowering their guidance figures. What's happening?
One explanation is that traffic is flocking to products that form core infrastructure for the forced digital push that companies are being thrust into with the pandemic. Companies will need more software to manage the new world. This includes products like #Slack, #Zoom, etc.
Sales motion will change drastically, with focus on inside sales with limited human interaction in the process. Companies which have the an easy self signup sales process and products that stand on their merit will gain the most.

How do you measure #SOC quality? 🤔

1. ISO 2859-1 (#AQL) to determine sample size
2. #Python #Jupyter notebook to perform random selection
3. Check sheet to spot defects
4. Process runs every 24 hrs
5. (Digestible) #Metrics to improve

How'd we get there? Story in /thread
I'll break the thread down into four key points:

1. What we're solving for
2. Guiding principles
3. Our (current) solution
4. Quick recap

My goal is to share what's working for us and how we get there. But I'd love to hear from others. What's working for you?
What we're solving for: All work is high quality, not just incidents.

On a typical day in our #SOC we'll:
- Process Ms of alerts w/ detection engine
- Send 100s to analysts for human judgement

Those 100s of alerts result in:
- Tens of investigations
- Handful of incidents

@OCPSnews Why are you making #Teachers come into school next week to go digital when we have been told by @RonDeSantisFL to stay home and all schools are closed?? #MyTeacherWife is afraid of getting #COVID19 from one of her co-workers and then giving it to me and/or her 1/1
elderly parents who we are taking care of during the #CoronavirusPandemic by bringing them food and supplies so they do not have to leave their homes and get sick. You are endangering my wife, her parents, myself, her co-workers and their families!! You should be ashamed to 2/2
even think this is a good idea. If you truly cared about your #Teachers and their families you would not make them do this at all. If you want to go digital I heard there is this new digital tool called E-MAIL where people exchange information and communicate with each other 3/3

Let's share a few tips on using Slack!

Here's a thread with some smaller useful ideas that you can borrow or refine... and: add yours! 😁

#slack #etiquette #designtwitter

Thread ↓
You can have some messages as "FYI", which mean this is relevant to know to this group, channel, or person, but doesn't require any action from them.

For extra clarity, I add a lighthouse emoji.
Marking questions clearly is also very useful: the yellow animated emoji does this very well. These are important questions that are expected for everyone to review and possibly answer.

Why @SlackHQ is so complicated to Login in Windows Desktop App? I am member of 6 groups. First, I have to email the list of groups to myself because obviously I don't remember the Slack Workspace URL of each of these groups.
That opened up Your Workspaces page listing all my groups. Then I clicked the first group's link to find out that the link have expired. So I have to email the magic links. Opened the email. Clicked the magic link. New tab opened in Chrome and login to the group. But I wanted to
login in Windows Desktop App. For that I have to Refresh Your Workspaces Page listing all the groups. Then clicked the first group's link again. I have to repeat all these steps for login into every group one by one. It was a to-n-fro chaos running through multiple apps & tabs.
