I was frustrated with the value I got out of Twitter, so I combined it with Spaced Repetition

Hey!
I recently listened to a podcast with @mmay3r where he was talking about his company Bottomless. At the end of the podcast he talked about the ephemerality of social networks and imaged a social network combined with Spaced Repetition. Listen to the following podcast clip for a short introduction: https://overcast.fm/+Lzu20uJN4/54:25
This idea really resonated with me and I couldn't let it go, which is why I devoted the last weeks to building a product that allows you to use the power of Spaced Repetition in combination with Twitter.
I have been trying out and using my project the last weeks and I am fairly satisfied with the first version and benefit from it.
If you want to try it out yourself, you can find it here:

Please let know if anything breaks or you have any questions :)

    Hey!
    It sounds like a great idea. I was trying to log in but got demotivated by aggressive permission requirements.

    See who you follow, and follow new people.
    Update your profile.
    Post Tweets for you.

    I imagine you need to read the tweets. Why would you ask permission to follow new people, update profile & post tweets for me?

      Should be fixed now. The permissions are reduced to read-only, this is the least intrusive option available :)

      Thanks for your reply!

      Originally I wanted to be able to send DMs to the user, that‘s why I chose the setting with most permissions.

      I will change it to read only!
