Eurovision pretending that didn't just happen on stage.

More comedy defending from Arsenal, and now we're a goal and a man down. We've not scored any points away in 2018 and I can't see that changing tonight (or this weekend).

I wasn't at #CRESTCon this year, but my name was apparently on someone's presentation today. Can't believe how many years it's been since I, @calderpwn, @iagox86 and @xorrbit knocked together those "current" scripts for @nmap. https://t.co/mYbXF6qfST

Wow, a second yellow card after only 9 minutes. This is literally a game changing advantage for Arsenal. #COYG

Twitter Extended Tweets
Wednesday 25th April, 2018 17:09
A while ago Twitter allowed tweets that were longer than the original 140 characters. Some bits of a tweet no longer counted towards the character count and they doubled it to 280 characters. To prevent breaking legacy applications they require an additional parameter when interacting with the API. You can find more details here.

It took me a while to update my own site to use the new API response, with the full_text, but I finally did that. The main thing was modifying the database to cope with the longer response. I then noticed I wasn't performing a Unicode regular expression, which broke a recent hashtag, which I've now fixed.
