What are your all time favorite Twitter threads?
Do you brand your invoices? What apps do you use for invoice generation?
I use Moneybird for all my administration. Invoices, receipts, offers. And in that tool I branded my invoices.
Interesting, I see you and the @Bjornftw are both dutch. Does Moneybird have some extra local features that make it more interesting than products like Freshbooks for example?
They provide stats and exports for the local vat that makes it very easy to use.
The mail's for offers and I voices are standard made in Dutch. That is handy, so Ido not have to translate it. I work.mostky for Dutch clients.
And, the help desk is up to par with the needs for local rules and regulation.
That is why I choose to use a local product for this.

What if WIP had real-time work sessions?
I am working on something that is called Work Mode.
A central and global Pomodoro times, that keeps running and you can hook into. No need to set software on your machine, just go to the site and use that timer.
The idea is to have multiple people working at the same pace and having a break also at the same pace.
I did a couple of runs in a physique location with 1 central running Pomodoro clock, and that worked great.
But ad a designer I got stuck on the programming part of that clock and having the site behaves based on that same timer. So, no solution very soon from me. But the idea, the proof and start is there.

Love to have one on my MacBook. I suggest the standard emoji + name we see every day.

Like so. Also as a wallpaper. But mainly on the left of the trackpad.
