Hi aspiring ! If you can’t afford to take my @skillshare class on accessibility, I am happy to provide you with a code so you can watch it for free.

In return I ask that you write an *honest* review and share the class with your peers!

@heydon Was this from that tweet thread earlier with Bren? ✨

Artwork for Queer Garden will be created by @Tatianamac πŸ’›. She already gave some great hints as to which direction it’ll go in. #MastoArt

@moiety Both are lovely for different reasons... and will attract complementary audiences. Both!!! πŸ’™πŸ’™πŸ’™

@sonniesedge @moiety yeah, it’s the lack of news articles, to start, which put me into a rage. I relate to the feelings of it being calmer for that reason.

And also, I don’t feel safe posting here what I post on Twitter, which is important to me. It feels like there isn’t tolerance for β€œreal talk;” or at least my brand of it.

@Tatianamac The proposed solution to every Mastodon problem is "run your own instance, and make it work however you like".

I understand why techies like this approach: it gives them all the power and none of the responsibility.

@moiety @sonniesedge I think unlike Twitter, this means best case, tons of COCs to learn, different for each instance involved in a convo, for example.

The way in which your information can extend beyond your instance, so that even private info can be shared with adjustments to code.

The idea of being easily impersonated.

The problematic WM who run Mastodon.

This thread helped me to understand;


After reading more, I feel that Mastodon’s regulation is simply problematic in different ways than Twitter.

I also regret not having done more research around instances.

Mastodon overwhelms me.

@sonniesedge love you, Charlie. I’m happy you feel relief and hope that you have all the support you need. πŸ’™πŸ’™πŸ’™

@mathowie@mastodon.cloudi forger you life in Portland! πŸ€—

@moiety Is it that Australia and NZ are or *are not* accepting of LGBTQIA+?

From what I see on Twitter, it seems like Australia has similar racist issues as the U.S. 😞 Curious about the intersectionality.

@hankchizljaw I love hearing about your web-redesign process. Mine is a bit lazy right now, but I was proud of myself for converting it to . (I'm not a very good developer, so this is a big feat for me.)

@oldmankris I'm not sure if my other response went thruβ€”but I feel similarly. A lot of my tweets were/are about racism/dealing with white supremacy. The lack of diversity here makes me feel very uncomfortable. Sure, no Nazis, but also, almost milquetoasty so far.

@wicked_guardian Thank you, T! I tried 5-6x to no avail... How much of this your very excellently discerning taste in friends? πŸ˜‚

I still can't get Twitter bridge to workβ€”do we think this is Mastodon's way of telling me to just give up on Twitter altogether?

@moiety totally! We can message about it fren! πŸ’™πŸ’™πŸ’™

I forget how hard it is to learn a new tool for a new user, even those who are adept computer users.
