A browse through the Google graveyard makes me a little weary of using tools they bring out. I was a big user of Google Hangouts and Google Air for instance. Killed by Google I’ve been using Google Tasks and Google Keep a lot lately, but don’t want to get too attached. killedbygoogle.com/

What can’t issues with respect to other matters be decided based on the verdict in the Sabarimala case? A review petition can be entertained only if there’s a palpable error in the judgment. The reference to the 7-judge bench is, by any account, entirely unjustified.

Some answers I've come up with:

1) Not many people

Yep. But the platform is gaining traction. Just look at the kind of conversations I have been having here. People are crazy responsive.

(Here I show them the same post I've done on Birdsite, Facesite and Mastodon.)

The quality of responses here are wayyyy better too. Not some "jali na teri" memes. People will come! You come first!

2) Can't find people here even if they're here

Sure you can. But then, think of it this way, go to and just follow a new lot of people. You can follow the regular folks on Birdsite only, but here you get to follow a whole new crop of interesting folks.

(Here I tell them to go to "Follows" on my profile)

Hopefully this will help. I'm following a lot of Indians here. Cheggit.

3) Looks too complicated

Yes it does. But just use it like Birdsite and start shitposting. Since there are few people, go crazy. You'll figure it out eventually.

Come, toot something. I'll boost ya!

4) Doesn't seem to different from Birdsite

Sure it is. Think of it like a 1000 birdsites split up with different people managing those, instead of one single entity. That's about it. Plus, no abuses and shitty low effort attention seeking behavior is a definite bonus. At least for now.

Try it!

They all are coming here to #mastodon

Fun fact: There are people in Pakistan who speak Dravidian languages called Brahui. So the Brahui people are distant relatives of Kannadigas, Telugus, Keralites and Tamil

Hi all, a lot of you have been dealing with questions about moving here to Mastodon from Birdsite.

I thought I'll offer up my reasons for migrating here and tell you why I feel pretty good about it. Maybe it'll work, maybe it won't, but it's worth giving it a shot.

Do read and share with people who want to move here!

hi new users!! i'm not sure how to reach a large amount of you other than having this post on the local timeline.

i'm a moderator here!
when reporting someone, doing it once is fine. real humans are handling your reports, and reporting someone multiple times adds to the workload!
also, when you do report someone, please add an explanation as to why you're reporting them. you can also add specific toots that you believe break our CoC, which you can find here: mastodon.social/about/more

I'm also going to try and NOT repeat my Birdsite content and post it here.

Will have some Mastodon exclusive content which will (hopefully) encourage more people to follow me here from birdsite.

Going to try and actively help with the migration by consistently asking people to follow me here.

Let's try this out, shall we? :dab:

Youguys! Frend @Manisha_ is now on Mastodon!

She's a vigilant newswatcher who does Republic instead of drugs! Do follow. You shall not regret.

My experience of getting harassed and how Mastadon dealt with it brought up some insights.

1. I joined Mastadon yesterday, a network that presents an alternative to toxic social platforms.

Rest in the pictures below 2-5.

As promised, mastodon.social code of conduct has been updated to add "casteism and advocation of casteism" to the list of explicitly prohibited offenses

Folks from India, I sent you two fuckin cyclones to distract you from What more did you expect me to do?

Now that I'm legally a human, I want to file an affidavit declaring myself an atheist.
