We don’t want a lot for Christmas – maybe just more WordPress tweets. December’s not quite over, but there’s been lots of talk among creators, developers, and members of the WP community.

We saw State of the Word, speculation about artificial intelligence, and a push for site creation when the bird app began LinkTree deforestation.

Here are our favorite WordPress tweets for December 2022.

WordPress pro Johnathan Williams showed us how ChatGPT was able to “speak” a plugin into existence.

Author Teri Kanefield may be talking about setting up a Mastodon server in this thread, but her point about owning her content is one of the reasons why we love WordPress. Your content is yours, always.

A Festivus for the rest of us

If you’re in the WordPress space, this year’s State of the Word was exciting, promising, and a lot of fun to watch. Check it out or watch it again.

Auld Lang signing off

While we may be leaving a bit early, we’re looking forward to seeing new versions and updates, Phases 3 and 4 of Gutenberg, and all your WordPress tweets about them.

Thanks for another great year in the books, and we’ll see you in 2023.
