Really pleased to see that "Who are your favourite people to follow on Mastodon?" thread on HN. It's a shift in tone from talking about the legitimicy of Mastodon as a platform

In news, I just found out that the witches.town instance (a pretty large one) is shutting down on April 30th.

A must-have browser extension which lets you group sites into "containers". Site cookies are separated by container to prevent sites from tracking you across the web: addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firef (e.g. I've created a Banking container)

I've been here a little while but never wrote a formal introduction, so here goes!

Like my bio suggests, I like , I'm a web developer based in , and I've set up my own instance for fellow Torontonians here: the6ix.space/

I've also created a number of bots to mirror content from Twitter to the Fediverse (full list is on my timeline), some are @bbcworld, @cp24, @ttcnotices (the last two will make Mastodon feel like home for fellow Toronto citizens)

observation: once posts (with hashtags) are set to anything other than public, the posts are not returned in searches even if the hashtag is specifically searched (due to this I will remove the hashtags from my bots since they're useless)
