That's what does - it can pull faves from the API (up to ~2000) or import your entire history from the Twitter export archive, then makes your faved tweets searchable using SQLite FTS

It's been a long time since I tried any vector image editors - I found Figma to be significantly more intuitive than Illustrator, Inkscape, Sketch or evening OmniGraffle - particularly impressive for something running entirely in the browser!

Having a lot of fun with Figma. I'd incorrectly classified it as software for designers to collaborate and share mockups with engineers - I'd not realized it's a top notch browser-based vector image editor in its own right, and free for individuals to use, with great SVG export.

Nobody: What’s your favorite paradox? Me: If you ask Rick Astley for his copy of the movie UP, he cannot give it to you as he will never give you up. However, in doing so, he lets you down. Thus creating the Astley Paradox.

Data point: I got the same email. So they're probably not A/B testing these, just blasting them out to everyone. Though I imagine neither you nor I have given them any money, so we are probably getting emails aimed at the same category of list member.

We made them from that recipe. O. M. G. this is the tastiest thing we've ever made not knowing what we were actually making! These things are spectacular.

Classic marketing and pricing lesson here - users trust products more the more expensive they are (cc )
