#1661: Mimestream app for Gmail, auto-post WordPress headlines to Twitter and Mastodon, My Photo Stream shutting down

This week’s issue kicks off with Adam Engst figuring out how to restart automated posting of TidBITS headlines to Twitter after WordPress was forced to pull that feature by Twitter’s exorbitant pricing changes. As a bonus, you can now follow TidBITS on Mastodon, too! After that, Adam turns his attention to explaining why he uses Mimestream, a Gmail-specific email app for the Mac that has emerged from a multi-year public beta with its 1.0 release. Finally, Apple says it’s shutting down My Photo Stream soon. Notable Mac app releases this week include BBEdit 14.6.6, Carbon Copy Cloner 6.1.6, Mellel 5.1.4, SoundSource 5.6, Fantastical 3.7.14 and Cardhop 2.2.7, and Final Cut Pro 10.6.6, Compressor 4.6.4, and Motion 5.6.4.
