BirdSite (aka Twitter) has added an algorithm to filter out 'Mastodon' from 'Trends' and even Timelines ๐Ÿ˜น๐Ÿ’โ€โ™‚๏ธ

Are you surprised?

This for real ??
Unbelievable !!!

Ye dar hamei accha laga takur. ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ˜„

They're starting to get legit concerned abt the mass-exodus ๐Ÿ˜น๐Ÿ’โ€โ™‚๏ธโœŒ๏ธ


@Lord_VoldeMaut that's cause it doesn't want any of our BIRD SHIT there anymore.
It's gonna be ELEPHANT SHIT hereafter.

@Lord_VoldeMaut Not surprised, but this is exactly what's
wrong with a central authority deciding what millions of people see and don't see when they go online right? It's about censorship, and imposing values.


Absolutely correct!!
The mass-exodus of us Indians from BirdSite to Mastodon shows just how tired we all are of BirdSite's Monopoly on controlling, deciding and constructing the online discourse.


@Lord_VoldeMaut @Erik Just went to see something on birdsite. Saw 1 nazi account shitposting nazi things and 1 castiest trend with 19.4k tweets telling lower castes where their place is.

@Theusualones @Erik

Not even surprised. Even if you report that tweet, chances are BirdSite's bots will send you an acknowledgement for reporting.

No action will be taken.
Handle will remain active to spew more venom.


@Theusualones Is this related to Mandal Commission? What is the news I missed?

@obscurosaur As far as I saw in a few tweets, they making veiled threats that Mandal commission will be next. And rest are either islamophic or outright caste deregotory.

@rick_777 LOL the sudden mass-migration from to protest BirdSite's pro-N@zi bias has definitely got their management shaking in their boots now!! ๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿ˜…โœŒ๏ธ


@dev_ponies @Lord_VoldeMaut As we have all seen, their algorithm can be flawed. Also, you canโ€™t stop a good thing.

Why would anyone choose to be abused when you can have peace of mind

@Lord_VoldeMaut Facebook did this too when I was cross posting to it back in 2016.

Just stop using them.


I only login on BirdSite to evangelise Mastodon!! Have been trying to convince my followers there to ditch that pro-fascist platform for good & join us here!

We even managed to trend and a couple of days ago on BirdSite. Their management noticed, and quickly sabotaged the trend. Just shows how we've managed to rattle them! ๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ’โ€โ™‚๏ธ

But you're right, eventually, our migration here will be complete & then we'll happily DELETE our BirdSite handles! ๐Ÿ˜ŽโœŒ๏ธ


@Lord_VoldeMaut oh, I saw.

Good job, btw.

I wasn't giving you a command, just stating the long term goals.

I don't even bother deleting my accounts.

It's like when I left the Mormons.
It didn't matter what I said they still count me as a member.
If I was offered the match to light their palace on fire I'd do it.

@Lord_VoldeMaut if they had not done this only we should be surprise ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿคฃ

Hey @Gargron

Can we discuss this on DM? I don't want to make my source public...๐Ÿ™‚


@schnittchen @Gargron @Lord_VoldeMaut Yes, please share the source of this info or share it with a journalist.

@schnittchen @Gargron @Lord_VoldeMaut So, where is that info heading now? Is there any public news coming about this? Or just speculations?

@Lord_VoldeMaut I'm sure they can do better or see their stock prices fall even further. I hope to see layoffs.

@Lord_VoldeMaut I saw that from day 2, it became impossible to easily search who among those I follow was migrating here. Do a search for 'Mastodon' you all, you'll see it for yourself

@david @Lord_VoldeMaut Iโ€™m also interested in verifying this claim. Unless a source is provided, an affirmation like this has no substance.

Next in this theater:
The Streisand Effect

(๐Ÿ™ please?)

You bet they do! ESPECIALLY when they suddenly realise they're in the midst of a mass-exodus of users to other, better platforms... ๐Ÿ˜น๐Ÿคญ


@Lord_VoldeMaut Interestingly(?) if I start typing 'Mastodon' into the search bar, I get a suggested search of 'Mastodon filter' yet it only has about 5 recent results for those keywords.

@shesgabrielle That definitely says something's afoot there, doesn't it? ๐Ÿ’โ€โ™‚๏ธ


@Lord_VoldeMaut It's bad that I can't combine answers ๐Ÿ˜• I'm definitely not surprised that they do something like that but I also don't really care because I never used Birdsite and I never will.
