It boggles my mind that Nitter is able to load a tweet from Twitter, render it to solid HTML and send it back to me, while Twitter barely manages to do the same thing with it's shitty JS-frontend.

@bascht TBF: nitter has none of the interactions: in the twitter version you are logged in, in the nitter not.

Read-only is, and always has been, much easier for web.

Still, what nitter does is an incredible achievement and twitter can and should learn from it.

@berkes true, but it's still not quick. The tweet text is the last thing that shows up. And looking at a tweet without being logged in is considerably worse, since half the page is covered with a sign in banner that will block access once you've scrolled too far. 😉
