    @whoisdanw Interesting, wonder if there’s a connection.

    (I've seen a lot of people having no idea what to do with this .html file and a load of .js files. Doesn't help that the .html file does nothing without JavaScript. So, for example, macOS Quick Look on the HTML file shows you a blank document. Gotta love progress.)

    Seems like it was sometime after January 2019 and before 26 May 2019 when this person got stuck with the new version reddit.com/r/techsupport/… twitter.com/kevinmarks/sta…

    The last download I have in the old format is from October 2017 so there's a big span of possibilities. I'm mainly just curious. It doesn't sound like the archive download is related to the API v2 change from this twittercommunity.com/t/tweets-archi…

    You know the archive of data you can request from Twitter? It used to be like the first screenshot, a CSV file, monthly .js files, etc. Now it's like the second, with many .js files including a single tweet.js containing all tweets. Anyone know when it changed format?

    @sweepingnation Same. I made this playlist of songs I knew I’d heard on the graveyard shift a while back (some now dead tracks I need to see if there are replacements for) open.spotify.com/playlist/45GqU… If you know of somewhere with any show playlists or similar it’d be good to add more tracks.
