Is any anti-national still tooting here?

@Gargron Kashmiris are cut off from internet from past 100 days due to state imposed lockdown, they'd have loved Mastodon. Kashmiris are one of the top victims of hate online. A message from you would mean a lot to them :-)

Gandhiji's death was "accidental".
Just as Judge Loya's was.
Just as Gauri Lankesh's was.
Just as Dabholkar's was.
Just as Pansare's was.
True. The Sangh's enemies tend to suffer accidents.
This is what today's kids are being taught in school.

Mastodon is not what people think.

It's a platform for 'Bad' things & dangerous place to be.

Always be & Keep good connections & in circles.
Always.

I don't understand jack shit on Mastodon. But I understand jack is shit on Twitter.

I've been asking people around me what is holding them from using Mastodon (even after some of them joined), and I got 4 reasons:

1) Not many people here
2) Can't find people here even if they're here
3) It looks very complicated, especially the instances thing
4) Doesn't seem too different from Birdsite so why bother

For people to adopt this platform, these four points need to be addressed. And that too in ultra-simple non-nerdy language.

Congressis used to go around withdrawing their secularism certificates from anyone who dared to criticise their party. How are these thekedars of secularism doing after their party is enabling extreme right Shiv Sena coming to power in Maharashtra?

I'm trying to keep track of the mass migrations to Mastodon that have happened.

I think it started with:
- early adopters, programmers, FOSS people
- tons of peeps in Japan
- furry community moving off Twitter
- LGBTQ+ folks leaving twitter
- people who saw that polygon article (me) or heard about it when it started getting mentioned on hackernews
- comics/artists leaving twitter
- NSFW blogs leaving Tumblr
- sex workers
- and now, Indian politics Twitter users

Am I missing any big moments?

Even with 500 character limit i end up making threads to vent, i h8 myself

I care abt beliefs/privileges/draconian laws which play role in oppression of & crimes against minorities.
Dont want anyone rationalizing them bcos of nationalism/pride/heritage/culture, OR ignoring them by the means of those tactics which i mentioned above, and which they do very OFTEN.

If point is to consider them, then i disagree, if point is to change them, THEN worth considering.

Yall know better but i hav my biases and is open on some issues only.

they deem "facts"/"FOE".

If you still believe that rw has something to offer, then you may hav fallen for their twisted arguments/false comparisons/diversionary tactics, in which case, i cant help!

I started out with "both sides equally bad/good", only to realise later that rw is worse.
Idk much abt economics and just started keeping up with history, thus open to liberals+leftists, and hav some positions which a few already consider "radical".

I dont get this "reach out to other side of the spectrum" argument.
Liberals & leftists are themselves divided on various issues.
Even if this site doesnt reach out to rw, it will still never be an echochamber or a bubble.

Also, rw literally has nothing to offer, they either deny, or downplay, or rationalize oppression & human rights violations.

It isnt only ambiguous troll accounts frm rw ecosystem who are vile.
Evn well liked/famous icons are, bcos of their hate speech which (+)

Are there any groups of organized resistance in Delhi which I can join?

Because I've had enough. My conscience no longer allows me to sit and watch the dehumanization of my people. I want to fight back, and not on Birdsite or thru a screen.

How can we stand together and fight?

JUST IN:

BirdSite (aka Twitter) has added an algorithm to filter out 'Mastodon' from 'Trends' and even Timelines 😹💁‍♂️

Are you surprised?

is making Sanghis so nervous that they are tweeting Amit Shah their orders now.
