A little something I made a few years ago. The whole thing took ~4 days of actual work, 36.2 cups of tea and £0.

Oh wow, the European Union 🇪🇺 now has its own official Mastodon instance!

social.network.europa.eu/explo

You can follow lots of important EU officials on here including the @EU_Commission

#EU #EuropeanUnion

Seems like a real shift in the potential of this platform that there's now an entire server for official EU accounts. social.network.europa.eu/

I'm pleased to note that even dolphin.town, my Mastodon server where the only letter you are allowed to post is "e", has seen increased activity in the last few days.

Thanks Eeeeelon!

🇪🇺🇺🇦 We are granting Ukraine zero duty, zero quota trade with the EU. This means:

Scrapping all customs duties on products not fully liberalised yet in our trade agreement, such as

⚙️industrial products or
🌾agricultural products currently limited by quota or entry price.

Anyway, I'm watching Ambulance and it's an even bigger bag of shite than I was expecting.

I remember one of the things that motivated me to look into the state of decentralized social media (and ultimately begin working on Mastodon) in 2016 were talks that a controversial billionaire might buy Twitter.

Podnews was reported to my web host as being “fraudulent” and sending “emails which extort users”. AWS came down on me like a ton of bricks, threatening all kinds of things; and Podnews has been reported to many other sources too, so I suspect many deliverability issues over the next week. The source of the report? A company called Netcraft, and some faulty AI which got confused with Friday’s email.

Algorithms trying to play the role of censor. Not a good look.

So I guess we'll all be over here if he buys the other place.
