Me, reacting to gamification:

week 1: Oooh, this is fun!

week 2: MUST GET ALL THE POINTS!

week 3: What kind of monster have I become!?

week 4: *never uses the site again*

It may not be the best strategy, but I'm going with it.

twitter: I'm sorry, but you have not pleased the algorithm!

me: omfg whew!

@hugh I was working on a pull request for ephemetoot and nuked my whole timeline. Oops. Will try to send a PR later today!
