In America, is there a historical reason behind states setting their own rules for how federal elections are run and managed? In Australia, we have one department that runs the election Australia-wide. It is answerable to a parliamentary committee. Each state has its own electoral commission to oversee state elections. The electoral role is shared between the state and federal commissions.
I guess it’s time for me to decide how I’m going to use this place. It’s either treat it as I treat Twitter — a read-only Service with the occasional response to someone I follow, or start throwing messages in a bottle and see what happens. Let’a try that. Hello World, I’m Marcus, a computer geek from Australia.

💥 Better Mastodon: A collection of layout and design tweaks for the Mastodon web app https://rmlewisuk.github.io/better-mastodon/

Are you here from Twitter and have switched instances recently? Don't forget to do the following:
1. Go to https://bridge.joinmastodon.org/ and log out of your old instance, then log in with your new instance so people can find you at your new home.
2. If you left a pointer/invite link on your Twitter account, update it for your new instance/account.
@mastohost does masto.host allow for importing/exporting a Mastodon instance, for example, if I have my own instance, and I want to move it to masto.host, or vice versa?
@tootapp for some reason, these pictures were rotated as part of posting them.
@dansturm I just read your posts on Twitter. Despite thinking Twitter were behaving pretty crap, that was the first time I felt sad about the situation.
@tootapp is there a way to get links to open in Safari, rather than a web browser in the app?
@MarcusP AFAIK, you can block that instance, or your instance admin might choose to do it for you.
@MarcusP mastodon servers can refuse to federate with other servers that have incompatible rules/codes of conduct
