@ONEAMERICANEWS1 @ABC11_WTVD Parler had a data dump before they closed down. They integrated with Twilio (who they used for authentication, also who dropped them) and many people extracted data from their servers. Quite a few fetched and stored all the data on their local hosts or cloud storage.

@hknightsf @jeffiel @twilio In terms of ordinary tech coworkers, my anecdotal impression is that those who planned to settle down in SF are sticking around, while many of those who were planning to work in SF for several years before leaving tech / SF are now accelerating their moves out of SF.

@hknightsf @jeffiel @twilio As I once heard it said, San Francisco always feels under attack because people always come here to pillage it.
From the Gold Rush to the dot-com boom, people come to extract SF’s riches, then discard what remains.
It’s the pillaging, not the leaving that’s the problem.
