Twitter and Facebook does not have any specific clause on 'casteism' , even though it has millions of Indian users. But @Gargron upped his game by adding the clause on casteism.
Special credit goes to @h_tejas for giving Eugene the idea for doing so 😊

Suicides among doctors is very high and almost no one has actually bothered to find out why.

Lovely article by Pamela Wible in the Washington Post.

If Patel's statue cost ₹3000 crore, just imagine how much this government created temple is going to cost, and also how much HCP Design will make off of it. The Patel statue could've funded noon-meals in UP for 22,321,428 children for one school year. Some priorities.

Into this space, I bring flowers and poetry. It doesn't matter, in this moment, what brought us here, or what we've left behind. It matters that we're here. This is one of the abiding principles of my life. 🌺

I like to clarify why we don’t have a verification system like the #birdsite with the blue thingy next to your name.

On the #fediverse or at least #Mastodon we all are equal. No person is ‘higher in ranks’ or better than everyone else, our point is exactly the opposite. We want equality right?

We have plenty of methods to prove who you are on other platforms, we don’t need a badge for that 😉 Ofcourse you can use it however you like but this would be the reason, I’ll hope you’ll understand

Let's get something clear...

The exodus from Twitter is not because of Trolls. Those were easily handled. The problem was that Twitter was being paid by the Govt to turn a blind eye to the radicalisation of the Majority community.

The exodus is not in fear but in disgust.

The issues plaguing birdsite India isn't a bug, it's by design. Their entire business model is dependent upon giving maximum reach for terrible takes on divisive issues and profiting off of the subsequent moral outrage.

Capitalism didn't give you internet. Much of what you see in internet came from volunteer labour of open source projects.

Capitalism gave you paywalls and hundred spam mails a day and sites you can't open because a thousand ads are covering the entire content.

@Deepsealioness Hi! I'm a freelance writer and here for the discourse, art, animals, books, funny anecdotes, fawning over stories and rhymes. Be kind, have fun!

If it's not productive, creative, supportive or healing, chances are I won't be following a handle on here. Or this will become another Twitter. No more eco chambers.

Gotta say, I haven't seen so much optimism on a social media medium in a long time. Feels really strange.

If you've just joined , congratulations. You're part of something that might change the way internet culture has been for over a decade (trolling, cyberbullying, misogyny, discrimination). Be mindful of every action - what you do, who you follow and boost, how you engage. This is a good opportunity to reconsider every single social media action and think about how it could be done better.

Cultures are built by people, not platforms and tools.

My mom works in BSNL and she says that senior officers have been spending upwards of 30-50k a year from their salaries to pay for bills and contract hires without any guarantee of compensation from BSNL. Wish the media and the government acknowledged the efforts these people who've worked over 30 years for a government office put in to make it a success despite little to no support from the DoT.
