I just remembered that Twitter owns a bunch of patents. This leads me to believe that Elon Musk now owns the patent for "Pull to Refresh." Horrifying. In retrospect, that "Innovator's Patent Agreement" they came up with was brilliant, though I'm sure Musk wouldn't hesitate to challenge it.

Twitter granted patent on pull-to-refresh, promises to only use it defensively

Can the Innovator’s Patent Agreement bring peace to the patent wars?
