Nine years after joining
Twitter, it’s time for me to also try a new medium

Little FYI;

I am NOT earning ANYTHING from mstdn.social 😉 In fact it's the opposite, Every week I work about 40-50 hours for a company so I can earn money and pay for the servers, domain, media storage and email services and don't get me wrong. I'm VERY happy to do that ❤️ and I will NOT stop doing that for a long time!

We do get donations and that's a BIG help! But still I need to pay much from my own pocket so keep that in mind. We are not a company, we are not Twitter, we drive on #love! ❤️

I've seen some others say that they are having lower engagement here than on the fascists-are-welcome social media site.

For me, it has been the opposite. I've been able to gather and answer questions about Indian history here. Real questions, real answers, without the barrage of hate.

Mastodon has freed me to engage on my areas of expertise.

It's the height of ridiculousness that even in the brink of 2020 one has to explain how reservation is not a poverty alleviation program but about representation. This 'ignorance' is not organic, it's intentionally sustained by those who were in power all these years.

It's not like this distinction is so nuanced that people can't understand it. It's just that they don't want to understand it and more importantly, they don't want others to understand it.

Updated the list of sponsors (patrons on Patreon) who support my work on Mastodon development and the hosting of mastodon.social:

Let's welcome @DerekOBrien - author, Member of Parliament (Rajya Sabha) - to #Mastodon!

Good to see you here, Derek ☺️🙏

#India #TootNotTweet 🐘

Unfortunately mstdn.social is still not listed on joinmastodon.org :blobsad:

I wonder what's happening 🤔 @Gargron

@ImFurquan Let me explain 😉

When a toot gets boosted many times and the author could edit the toot it could alter the content dramatically so people who boosted it could end up with something they wouldn't boost in the first place 😃

I hope I explained it clear 😉 However you can delete & redraft the toot! :mastodon: 💪

Let's all give a big thank you to @Gargron for adding mstdn.social to the joinmastodon.org list! :blobcheer: ❤️

@Gargron @tachyons @Koshy @girishNaught @Ca_Gi I think the Mastodon instance whose admin glorifies the HIndu Supremacist who killed Gandhi deserves to be banned.

Kudos to @host for doing the right thing. tabletop.social/@host/10311575

Yesterday, I reported his toots advocating Muslim Genocide (they have been deleted since then) and the admin has been banned from mastodon.social

No, wonder the fascist heaven has a backup account on Gab and is hurt from Gab apps being banned. inditoot.com/@inditoot/1021842

A big thanks to all Patrons for mstdn.social! You are making a huge difference♥️ :patreon:

Apparently sanghis are using inditoot.com server to quote toot and spy on us. Search inditoot, tap three dots, tap mute, and hide entire domain. I think that blocks the entire server. Let's make them work more to troll us 😁

@Deepsealioness they are obsessing over you on Inditoot. All your toots end up there anyways.
