This week in Flutter #83
With everything that has happened with Twitter lately, I decided some issues ago to avoid linking Twitter profiles in the newsletter. I prioritize personal websites, but if I cannot find any, I link either GitHub or LinkedIn profiles.
I was never very active on Twitter because I felt that the timeline was always full of tweets I did not care about. I was using an RSS reader for tweets from people I followed.
Now I reduced my usage even more, and I started using Mastodon. Do you know of any Mastodon clients made in Flutter? Possibly with both mobile and desktop apps?
