Since you specifically mentioned Twitter as the main source for these loud posts, I can say that many of them are just wanted to verify their status as a TS developer.
I also see many of them ended up freelancing or worked on tech startups, which aren’t included in W3Techs list.
When it comes into the big web industry, WordPress might won the “icing on the cake” by being able to afford a simple (despite themes and plugins are making it more complex), open CMS for managing content. Even many global news websites are still using that instead of fancy SPA.
But successful stories, as told by the top ones who are using TypeScript, convinced people that every website should be rewritten in TypeScript.
That’s unfortunate, especially when simpler solutions do exist. For devs, code might be important, but for people, content matters.
