I really enjoyed the most recent that discussed tortoise and hare engineers. I'm definitely a bit more of a tortoise, but I have sincere appreciation for the hares. Completely agree a good team will have both to balance each other. 💯

Sports or video games that feed my competitiveness. Literally the only moments in my life my brain isn't racing is when I'm completely focused on the task in front of me and both of those provide a stream of small tasks/goals that require that level of flow and concentration.

Friends at ! I’ll have some stickers for my data structures and algorithms course with me. Come find me and tell me something you learned from it, or a favorite DS&A tidbit of yours to get one!

One of the best things about meeting Twitter friends IRL is finally having an accurate physical depiction of that person in your head. Also, bonus, you get to read all their tweets in their voice.👍

I keep my mustache trimmed because it bothers my wife when we kiss and it also legitimately gets in the way of eating. I could grow a stache of my current length in probably 4-6 weeks is my guess. Best of luck. 👍

Either that or they have an error in their calculations 😱 I’ll have to run some maths soon I guess.

I hit Plat 3 the other night, I might be able to get to Diamond by the end of the season.

Your math is slightly off, it’s $12k a year. About $1.1k/month.

Are you sure? Fake celeb accounts have tons of followers. And it wouldn’t matter if anyone followed, if the impostor replied as if they were the original. Again, this isn’t about verification, it’s about sexism in the process.

Not the point. She, and other women, have deserved it for years, long before it was on hold.

People have been tweeting about verification being sexist for years. I’m not the first one, and the anecdata is plain and obvious. The most successful women in our industry are unverified, some nobody men are. That’s all the bias you need to demonstrate sexism.

Given that Sarah is so popular that there are fake impostor accounts of her, the entire point of verification is to identify who the authentic Sarah is.

Read Sarah’s responses to my tweet, there are multitudes of women who applied and were rejected. This tweet here names a few that should easily be verified before random tech dude I mentioned.

If your response to my tweet did not address sexism, which it did not, then you missed the point. The random white dude I mentioned was a tech person. So much for your theory about them not being worth verification.

You missed the point. Sarah, and many other women, have been deserving of verification for years, and have been excluded because they are women. It’s not about whether it’s open now, it’s that it’s never truly been open for some amazing people and open for some nobodies.

Also, y’all rationalizing why it hasn’t happened, I know some you mean well, but you’re missing the fact that these transgressions have existed FOR YEARS. It’s not just Sarah. There is a pattern of sexism, they’re not just some random incidents.

It’s because it’s arbitrary it bothers us, we want a reason, an understandable, verifiable reason for it to exist.

Doubt that. Rando white dude definitely didn’t have any thing in his bio to help Twitter make more money. At least that’s my take on it.

To break this down a bit, I need to save about $12K a year until I'm 68 for Anna and I to have ~$90K a year to live on. Fingers crossed that will be enough at that stage in our life.
