I've spent the past week getting to know myself better and doing some self care.

I am proud to come out as a gay man.

I never thought I'd have the courage to do this and I really want to thank the fediverse for helping me be comfortable with who I really am.

I love you guys ❤️

In case it wasn't clear:

I am anti-racism, anti-sexism, anti-homophobia, and believe black lives matter. If you have a problem with that, smash that unfollow button.

"We have enormous freedom. That’s not a gift that was given to us, it’s a legacy that was left to us by centuries of struggle. By centuries of people that most of whose names are completely forgotten, the ones who created the freedom and the rights we now have, and that will be taken away unless you constantly defend them."

Did you know you can follow hashtags on ?

Click a hashtag, then the follow button and you'll see them when you browse timelines.

Forgot which hashtags you follow? Go to Settings -> Relationships -> Hashtags to view all the hashtags you follow.

Good Morning!

Discovered a spammer had sent hundreds of DMs on to local users.

Since we filter out DMs from accounts you don't follow, no notifications were sent and impacted very few users.

We have removed like counts from Discover, Hashtag and Profile pages.

Like counts on posts will be replaced with "Liked by" and the count will only be visible to the status owner in our next release.

imagine bragging for years (decades?) about how good you are at management and running a company and then decimating your team over the course of a week, lmfao

Hey people new to Mastodon!

Did you know that Mastodon is part of a wider network called the Fediverse?

These (and more) are on the Fediverse too:

PixelFed - an Instagram alternative (

PeerTube - a YouTube alternative (

WriteFreely - a blogging platform like Medium (

Lemmy - a Reddit alternative (

You can follow Fediverse accounts from Mastodon, because Fediverse platforms talk to each other.

I am happy to reveal that a non-profit legal entity for Mastodon, Mastodon gGmbH, is in the process of being entered into the German company register.

For context, I have been operating as a sole proprietor so far.

It's been in the works for 8 months but I didn't want to announce anything until everything was finalized just in case it didn't work out. Yesterday, I paid in the starting capital.

It wouldn't be possible without the help and advice of @mellifluousbox. More to follow in blog form.

Hi I'm looking for work again

Notable experience: I wrote the Mastodon documentation and I help manage Pixelfed


Looking for documentation, technical writing, could also do Github issue triage or junior programming, project/product management

Can be either a permanent role or a temporary contract thing

It's been a while since I've last given an update on Resin, but just today, I managed to finish implementing the UI. It definitely has some kinks that still need to be worked out but I don't expect the look to be changing much going forward!
