Good morning Mastodoston! Here's Ozzy Osbourne to get your day started!

I shared this as my Whatsapp status and a number of friends and family have asked me for a copy. No debates, no arguments, no heartache, no headache. My good deed for the day.

However, I think that in our case such a scenario is highly unlikely. First of all, the order of events is reversed--ActivityPub and Mastodon have been built after Twitter, as improvements over Twitter, and the current, not insignificant userbase has specifically left Twitter over bad features, management, or misaligned incentives, so there is essentially no risk of losing that userbase back to Twitter even if it joined the space.

It would make non-Twitter social media providers like Mastodon, Pleroma, Pixelfed and others more competetive, since they offer a better experience not motivated by corporate interests and can explore more sustainable and ethical business models. Twitter adopting ActivityPub would also be incredible validation of everything we've been working towards and lead to more platforms joining the decentralized social web and more exciting and innovative projects being created in this space.

I thought people would stop posting twitter links 

It is ironic how people left twitter to aana land and yet continue to post shitty twitter links. WTF. Post actual links. Not the shitty t.co bullshit.

I'm mad 😾

My dream for Mastodon is for it to be a viable choice as a publishing platform for any creator. In other words, for people to not feel like they're locked in to Twitter or Instagram if they want to be professionally successful.

Check out Mr. Naidu breaking into some freestyle rap. Rhyme ain't crime! 🤣
