I just wanted to see what's new on my homepage in twitter, but after scrolling enough, the algorithm started to glitch out, and show me stuff I'd seen before.
I saw the same tweet thread for like 3 times, and the page visibly flickered, changing the visible tweets.
If only I could follow twitter people from Mastodon, but I imagine twitter wouldn't be too happy about that.
>>> I wouldn't call the developers inconsiderate for not having them. Most people won't use those options.
But I don't really see any excuse for the lack of undo, cancel, and possibly removal.
For pull to refresh, I believe there should be (and generally is) a small "wiggle room" where it doesn't refresh, but I'm not entirely sure if that affects spamming to scroll to the top
FABs can be annoying if they are placed near the edges, which they mostly are, but I'd assume putting them in the center would fix the accidental presses.
And both of them, with all their pros and cons, are standardized, and could be intuitive to new users. And while having options would be great >>>
Well, if someone made a Mastodon instance, and called it "THE NEW TURKISH SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORM", it's possible for some people to try it out, but a lot of people tried that with proprietary sites, and look at how they turned out: Basically dead.
The fediverse had an advantage of already being populated, but since most people here speak English, and most Turkish people don't care about learning English, that advantage doesn't help much.
To be fair, most people don't care about who's behind their apps, so the only way for alternatives to actually get into the market is for the big platform to mess up, like what happened with India.
But then, Twitter did censor stuff (to avoid getting blocked for a N-th time, I assume) and that didn't make people leave, so what will?
The only realistic event I can see regarding Mastodon is: Someone will leak stuff here and get it banned, along with associating Masto with "the bad guys"
After seeing the influx of Indian people to Mastodon, it only makes me sad knowing how you literally can't communicate without having some presence on Facebook services (primarily WhatsApp) in Turkey.
Well, there's nothing stopping you from using SMS/Calls, but people still expect you to have the app.
While yes, Mastodon isn't that comparable to FB's services functionality wise, at least it's a start on getting people outside of the corporation bubble.
I did a thing today!
@biffbiffbiff Yeah, Those are what I assume is going to take most of the space. Maybe along with my old YouTube videos.
@robjloranger You just reminded me -- I had a ~50 GB of photo backups stored in Google Photos/Drive. So I assume one of the archives will just be full of pictures.
I do tech-y or gaming-y stuff on the rare occasion I feel like doing something more than lurking around.
