I used a 2016 MacBook Pro with 1st gen butterfly keyboard just fine at work. Apple now offers 1 day turnaround for repairs to the keyboard if they do arise. I usually don’t use it while I’m eating and I wash my hands quite frequently during the day. I think maybe the keyboard can’t handle the abuse some people throw at it, but for me it is fine. I actually like the low travel. I’m not really concerned about it TBH and I don’t think Twitter surveys constitute a form of empirical evidence.
