Don't drink from plastic bottles ...

@qxn I’m not fully committed to Mastodon yet. Let’s see what this turns into.
But I got rid of WhatsApp, LinkedIn and Facebook and I’ve never been better.
I still use Instagram and I wish there was a great photo sharing app with a clear business model and higher resolution photo uploads with great people ...
