    Generally looks pretty good.

    This is dumb

    This is dumb though. The sort of thing that's fun for a UI designer to make, but just distracting to users.

    Not as nice as last year when they had that gorgeous Geoff Mcfetridge illustration.

    The design looks fine. But there are much more pressing issues with the product that need to be addressed.

    Directing resources to this only serves to highlight the poor prioritisation going on at Twitter.

    brutalist approach

    I'm not sure you understand what this term means; because you can't make a phone OS out of concrete.

    Thanks for that. Like I said, I agree with you. But I know people will dismiss this argument due to lack of evidence.

    It's not because they don't want to be. There are systemic forces that push women out of these fields or prevent them from entering it in the first place.

    Although this is probably the right answer, it'd be good to have some analysis to back this up. As Matt has at least use some evidence for his position.

    Two things on this

    The core issue here, is it seems, that females are simply not interested in the tech field.

    This is an inference you have made for yourself. Perhaps their are other reasons that woman are not enrolling in courses that lead to tech jobs.

    The way I read your statement is as follows: Women hold most of these job but its not fair that they don't hold even more

    This is not what is being said at all. The statement is making a comparison between professional numbers as a whole and the numbers within the IT sector, and asking why that discrepancy has occurred. It's a perfectly legitimate question.

    I think you are being nitpicky with your correction of this statement.

    The lighter sizes look fine at smaller sizes. I would never use this for display type though. I really don't like those harsh corners, they make the characters look rough and unfinished.

    Also, for what it's worth, I have no issue with how the scrolling work. Only designers care about so called "hijacking" of the scroll. If it ads to the editorial experience, I say, go ahead!
