    Uploading issue was just resolved :) Enjoy. Would love any more feedback that you have.

    Old recordings? I was thinking of adding a search feature where a user could search names/recordings across all users, then you could even use other people's recording if you wanted to.

    Thanks! Sorry about that, Kyle. Yeah, the upload experience needs more love. My guess is that the audio file your uploading is longer than 5 seconds? I need to add more clarification in the UI. What stopped you from recording via the UI?

    Thanks, Gavin! Yeah, I've been meaning to put it into the logo. I'll definitely do that along w/ an example. Appreciate the feedback :)

    This past week has been disheartening for many of us. I think it's important to remember that what drives hatred is the fear of what's unfamiliar and unknown. A little while ago, I open-sourced a JavaScript plugin that helped educate people on how to say difficult to pronounce names (like mine!). Today, I'm launching a free web tool built on that plugin that allows you to more easily record your name, store, and add the name pronunciation to your website. The world's a big place with many different cultures, traditions, and dogmas–but, hopefully, we can all make some effort to close these gaps, even if it's in small ways like showing people how to pronounce diverse names.

    Well, you see, Twitter is a company. And companies have employees. And employee provide capped resources. Because of this, Twitter has a roadmap. Similar to ones that most functioning product companies have. This roadmap consists of a backlog of hundred and hundreds of features and fixes that they need to plan, design and implement over the course of time. These features and fixes are all prioritized in the most logical way in order so that the product will survive the test of time.

    Your minor corner case issue of someone misspelling your Twitter handle is the least of their worries right now. Is it on their roadmap? For sure. But - doesn't sound like a big deal, so I'd get on with it.
