> LEAVE TWITTER
You have to specify a direction.
> GO MASTODON
You have arrived at Mastodon.
The building has dozens of entrances, all with 'official' signage above the door, but with graffiti and stickers and signs all over near them anyway.
> GO TO MASTODON.SOCIAL
You walk towards the door marked 'mastodon.social', and note a parking sign that instead says NO AWOO -- $300 FINE in the typical lettering.
I think I enjoy steeping tea with a gaiwan the most out of all my tea vessels. Other than the matcha bowl maybe.
I am a genderfluid women who is a PhD Student. My research consists of compilers, video editing, and combining programmatic and direct manipulations. Basically, I live in the intersection of PL, Systems, and creative computing.
Other interests include: anything about gender/sexuality and queer related, bicycles, urban planning, systemic oppression, and probably several other things I forgot.
The fire closest to my home is still under five hundred acres in size, still over six miles away, andup to 10% contained from 1%.
I'm still safe with friends. I say this to remind myself how lucky I am compared to everyone affected by the Tubbs, Nuns, and Atlas fires.
If this toot has made you wonder how you can help, then I'd say the easiest way would be donating to locally-run charities in the affected area - and wouldn't you know it, here's one now: https://www.redwoodcu.org/northbayfirerelief

A lot of people are missing the point of the twitter boycott. Ok heres how twitter works, they sell your data to advertisers for money, any interactions, good or bad are data they can sell.
All that harassment women get? That makes them money. All the call outs, all the toxic shit, all the fights with bad people? Makes them money.
They have a vested interest in creating engagement and nothing does that better than anger. They keep the bad people around because they know you will fight them. Thats data, they can sell that and then market to people just like you.
While they market to the people who want to abuse you too.
*not using twitter* is literally the only way to hurt them.
ANYWAY, for those who haven't heard, Mastodon recently changed how private posts work. I wrote up a quick overview of the changes, which you can read HERE: >>>> https://marrus-sh.github.io/mastodon-info/everything-you-need-to-know-about-privacy-v1.3-020150428.html

Twitter sued Customs and Border Protection for trying to unmask one of their pseudonymous alt agency accounts. Within 24 hours of Twitter filing the lawsuit, the government withdrew its subpoena. What happened here?
