best tweets of April 2023

We pity the fool who doesn’t love April. It’s got the perfect date of the year: April 25th. It’s not too hot, not too cold — all you need is a light jacket. WordPress birthday celebrations are starting. The NBA and Stanley Cup finals have begun.

WordPress users had a great month as 8.2’s performance improvements really started to show their strengths.

Let’s take a look at the best tweets of April 2023.

Coming in hot

It’s not quite summer yet, but WordPress pro Johnathan Williams came in with some fresh and spicy takes.

A tweet from Mike from Niche Twins that says: To the entrepreneurial voyeurs out there lurking, reading, learning everything there is about starting an online business…you’re “ready” enough. Start today. Spin up a WordPress site. Publish an article. It’s probably not going to be great, but that’s not the point.

Software developer, programmer, and engineer David Winer reminds us that the platform is the medium but WE are the artists.

A tweet from Dave Winer that says: Facebook is what you make it. Twitter is what you make it. RSS is what you make it. Mastodon is what you make it. WordPress is what you make it.

We love hearing all about WordPress, especially from familiar faces and can't wait to see this! Listen to Jeff's guest spot here.

A tweet from Jeff that reads: I'm going to be a guest tonight on a WordPress 20th anniversary podcast with others where we'll share what we think was the most memorable WordPress release, WordCamp Experience, and notable announcements from the various State of the Words. This is my kind of show.
