For what it's worth, I have a Twitter account: https://twitter.com/BLatro

And, sadly, as with FB, I've been looking at it more than my DW of late. (I've just been a bit overwhelmed recently, which makes me disorganized and unproductive. (Which just makes things worse. (Though it's nothing bad - just a run-of-the-mill mess.)))

Twitter doesn't matter in the scheme of things, in that it'd be no loss to me if I didn't use it. FB's different though, in that it's the only place I make contact with some people, all of whom I knew before FB. (I'm deliberately not making new friends there.) I loathe FB as a platform as well as its business model, but what can you do? People have no taste when it comes to the net.

The one good thing about Twitter is that while it takes longer to write a tweet than it does a normal sentence, it means tweets are quicker to read. Forcing people to write frugally does have some virtues.

So, having got Twitter videos working in Firefox last month, (see the previous post), they've stopped working again after Firefox's latest update. Twitter's fault, or Firefox's? Well, Twitter's, really, since they should be checking them on all the browsers and videos work fine in Facebook and most everywhere else. (Twitter videos don't work in Opera either, but do in Chrome, so maybe Twitter's hoping above hope that Google will buy them and so only care about Chrome...)

Videos on Twitter in Firefox haven't been working for me, so I decided to look into it today and I found the solution...

in about:config set media.mediasource.webm.enabled to true
