❓ Say you were kidnapped, but allowed to keep Tweeting to pretend things are fine...What's a Tweet that screams 'you're not alright to followers', but your kidnappers don't know you're asking for help?

E.g. "ArcMap hasn't crashed all day!"

Standard answers with 𝚙𝚌𝚛𝚎𝚐𝚛𝚎𝚙 or 𝚐𝚛𝚎𝚙 -𝙿𝚣𝚘 don't work with my massive 20GB PostgreSQL log file. 😖

It's hard to filter out things with 𝚐𝚛𝚎𝚙(𝟷) when it's spread across lines...

In , the wiki plays a crucial role in documenting (among others) a tag for features on the map.

The OSM community promotes the seemingly chaotic concept of "Any Tag You Like" [1], the consequence of which is many barely (e.g. stubs) or undocumented tags.

A small improvement on a wiki page (i.e. making it more readable, hence useful to more people) sometimes lead to dramatic changes in usage.

Use the wiki, Luk! 😁

@cincodenada 🤷🏻‍♀️ This would be Hacks Upon Hacks. And I'm just guessing.

The rainbow (🏳️‍🌈) & trans (🏳️‍⚧️) flags use ZWJ in the middle, so I thought that was how the hack went...

At least, I 𝘁𝗵𝗶𝗻𝗸 this is possible. And I don't know a lot about fonts... 😅

You need to make a new font which can interpret this new sequence obv. I'd like to know how to do that...
