Just as a heads-up, don’t use PMs/DMs on Mastodon, and if you have to never share any private information.

Admins of sending and receiving instances can read those, as there is no end-to-end encryption. Even if you trust the admins, instance ownership could change or hackers or government could get in.

Use different tools designed specifically for this.

btw, for people new to Mastodon, because it bears repeating - CW = content warning. To use it, click "CW" under a post you're making, and enter a label for the post.

common CWs/content warnings are for things like US politics, death, mental health (or mh), which is noted by positive (+) or negative (-), anything that people may not want to necessarily see as they're scrolling by. let people choose what to interact with, because you don't want certain content either.

Been a while since I worked with Twitter’s API, and I heard they fucked it up, but I’ll look into it. Would like a link to the Toot in the Tweet of all crossposts.

These books arrived in the mail today. Written in 1948/1949 by major Oliver H. Langeland, leader of the main Norwegian resistance movement, Milorg, in Oslo during WW2. The books mostly consist of public documents, but exposes the govt's treason, and thus was banned and confiscated.
