Well that was a good weekend off the birdsite. I wholly enjoyed Mastadon only, but I'm turning cross-posts back on while we all decide where we're going to live.
Me, I can see myself maining Mastodon very soon. Just need a few more people and some polish on the clients.
I’m sorry. I really don’t want to be a boost factory, but that one made me laugh out loud.
TOOTS TOOTS TOOTS TOOTS

me, chanting: toots, toots-
followers: toots, TOOTS
other people: [arriving from twitter] TOOTS, TOOTS, TOOTS!
Mastadon milestone #2
My mother has successfully managed to SIGN UP for a Mastadon account.
She has not successfully yet been able to ACCESS that account to follow me.
I have to help her with that.
Stay tuned for #3: Mainstream
🐉🎤 Sing me the song of your people Kiryu! It's time for more Yakuza 6! 🐉🎤
New masto-milestone! I just muted my first user!
I'm told the tester limit is now 10000 users rather than 1000. So signups are open again, since there is lots of space!
Just remember, this is still a beta! Not everything works. No content warnings, no federated timeline, no search, no autocompletion for user names, and so on.
Useful keyboard shortcuts for the web client that aren't documented in the panel yet, courtesy of @Gargron:
gb -> blocked accounts
gd -> direct messages
gf -> favourites,
gh -> home,
gl -> local timeline,
gn -> notifications,
gs -> getting started panel,
gt -> federated timeline
gm -> muted users,
gp -> pinned toots,
gu -> your profile
Oh right, he said remembering, the best part of the old site was when it was just hearing what your friends were thinking about. Kind of like it is here right now.
Thanks everyone for coming.
Friendly reminder: this isn't Twitter.
If you're mad about something? Use a content warning.
If you want to write a long post? Use a content warning.
Don't share screenshots of toots that make you mad, and don't follow people that make you mad.
You've left the swirling fire vortex of rage birdsite created to keep investors and advertisers happy. Live free! Live well 👍

Another thing I'm really enjoying about this Mastadon rush is how in addition to feeling like early twitter, because it's an open source project, I don't feel like we're all piling into a walled garden that will eventually be torn up for business reasons. It feels fresh and hopeful again, like the internet used to be decades ago.
Closed it down for now since no more requests seemed to go through. Will open it again in maybe half an hour and see if it works better then.
Purveyor of quantified bullshit since 2005. Definitely not a crook.
