These are Indians.
You see them everywhere, as you criss cross India by road.

Adivasis
They have no papers to show.

Will they all, end up in concentration camps ?

Frightening situation.

Here we all are, Mastodon. Seeking respect for views government dislikes and swift takedowns of actual hate speech.

Once upon a time, there was a very powerful bird. So powerful, that it silenced the voices of people who didn’t agree with it. And then an elephant stomped on it.

What's happening here at #Fediverse is the true network effect.

There are no paid advertisements. People inviting other people to join the network that is built democratically from the bottom up and has the idea of federation built in.

Without federation, we couldn't really challenge the hegemony of Facebook or Twitter, or Google or Youtube.

It becomes very clear that the idea of #Federation is the key not only for digital platforms but social movements as well.

Educate! Agitate! Organize! and Federate!

How history will remember @Twitter@twitter.com : a social media platform whose owners couldn't recognize how they were helping spread hate through ill-designed and obtuse policies and ended up reducing the platform to an advertising board for other, better regulated platforms.

I've made a deliberate choice against a quoting feature because it inevitably adds toxicity to people's behaviours. You are tempted to quote when you should be replying, and so you speak at your audience instead of with the person you are talking to. It becomes performative. Even when doing it for "good" like ridiculing awful comments, you are giving awful comments more eyeballs that way. No quote toots. Thank's

Seriously wish we lived in a world which wasn't as sex-obsessed as this one.

OK, I think this is a big f***ing deal.

A group directly linked to India's ruling Hindu nationalist BJP is working to defeat Labour MPs and help Conservatives win the election.

This isn't covert like Russia. This is out in the open

I heard Mastodon is becoming popular in India now, that is great news. Welcome everyone

Okay so I'm one of those Indians that stormed in here after that Twitter incident, and I have to say this is a very good platform. Some of the features I really liked are:
1) U can't see the no. of boosts (RTs) or favs (like) a toot (tweet) has got unless u open it, so it makes this more of a content based platform.
2) There are three different feeds– personal, local and global.
3) The instances are regulated by humans so reporting abusers actually works.

Why didn't I find this site earlier 😍😍
