i never really publicized my birdsite handle anyway but will make it a point to have my mastodon handle on public presentations

@Gargron on that subject, how goes progress on a "share to Mastodon" button?

I've adapted a solution I saw on one of your bug tickets a few months back for my blog, but only seems to work on Firefox atm!

(As an example, see share links at the bottom of this post:

@Gargron FYI still can't set up AdWords campaigns for the joinmastodon site since it "links to pages distributing malware" still. AKA certain instances it links to have been flagged.

@cj woah. The new picker doesn't even link to that many instances, comparatively. Maybe I'll have to rel=nofollow the links...? Or that won't help?

@gargron I have just tweeted and facebooked. thanks :)

@Gargron I've actually potentially managed to get another user on the platform. A Twitch streamer who I've been doing management work for on his Discord server.

@Gargron I've just opened a Mastodon account 👍

@Gargron I did just that and I instantly got 3 new followers... on Twitter! 😟

@Gargron I finally made the decision to delete my account--after 15 years on there. In a farewell message I asked my friends/family to join . I said that I hope Mastodon doesn't have the capacity to become as evil as Facebook, since Mastodon is decentralized, peer-to-peer, and has no Big Brother company controlling it.

@Gargron Thanks! I'm feeling good about my decision!😀
