A Reddit comment I came across 6 months ago that amused me so much that I still think about it in the middle of the night:

(received Moderna yesterday - now MMPM - and definitely feeling its power today)

:sabakan: 3.5.3 has just been released with multiple security fixes, as well as a couple cool improvements!

Regarding elections: if unhappy with first-past-the-post, strategic voting is a thing.

If inclined to vote PC, vote PC. If not there are tools like:
votewell.ca
votethemallout.ca
stopthesplit.ca

Find riding by postal code: voterinformationservice.electi

Updated my bots to auto-delete toots 2 weeks or older, as well as set them to auto-expand short urls and strip out tracking parameters 👍

It is worth noting that auto-delete capabilities are built into Mastodon as of version v3.5.0 which is really cool!

The settings can be found in Settings => Automated post deletion (or by visiting /statuses_cleanup on your instance)

Today's new Android release makes it more obvious now! (arrow icons added) 👍

Just accidentally discovered that the official app (Android at least) supports multiple account sign-ins!

Long-tap your profile picture in the bottom right corner.

For a "Yes Express" bus there certainly have been a lot of no's over the past few years, like to paid sick days

Even though I am verified on Twitter, I find the "verified" process on elegant: granular verification of domain/page ownership, complete with context - available to everyone.

My compliments to the chef(s), @Gargron et all.

(for anyone new you may see some users with the icon: some instances have the Twitter verified icon as a custom icon and some users choose to add it to their display name; on Mastodon this has no significance)

Mastodon for Android has been installed over 32K times! Still only 400 ratings though. Please don't forget to rate the app!
