Not quite sure whether this reflects gratitude or passive-aggresive self-righteousness:
RT @Elloryn@twitter.com Just read something about replacing "I'm sorry" with "thank you". So, instead of saying "sorry I was late", say "thank you for waiting for me". Replacing negativity with positivity and gratitude and breaks the "i'm sorry" cycle. Powerful.

RT @alcor@twitter.com: I’ve made you an itty bitty experiment just in time for independence day–
a tool to create websites contained within their own link.

RT @soulellis@twitter.com: this is a nice idea: portable websites contained within their own URLs — no server itty.bitty.site/

Trying this place here with @Mastalab
The experience is nice, but it's a shame such a small fraction of people I follow on @twitter use it. In the meantime I'll try to syndicate my posts here.

@Gargron is there somehow a way to connect IFTTT to Mastodon?

Staring at an uneventful timeline, I realize that Twitter’s “who to follow”, is a silent killer feature. I wonder if there’s a trend here, but to even search for it, I first have to type it.

kudos @Gargron now let's all find a way to make people uncomfortable elsewhere :)
