things mastodon has:
โ€” the good ui hidden behind a button that is itself hidden
โ€” performance issues hide your posts more efficiently than any algorithm
โ€” platform moderated based on what your choice of a german engineer or a bunch of rabidly antisemitic furries have deluded themselves into thinking is good pr for their platform the public doesn't know about
โ€” can't access the local tl
โ€” project manager who sees you as sex doll sponsorship revenue

things users coming in from twitter like:
โ€” the tweetdeck-like interface
โ€” chronological tl
โ€” platform moderated based on actual principles, not what a braindead billionaire thinks is best pr
โ€” the local tl and how it acts like a chatroom
โ€” admins who see you as a community, not ad revenue
โ€” ability to spin off and customise your own instance

lewd, gross, cursed, & food

looking back, this is terrible and i should probably just report to the closest jail voluntarily.

@jackdaw_ruiz LOL, you got me good! It took me a while to realize you aren't really an admin. Some friendly redditors pointed it out to me.

huh ever since the Twitter news got announced there have been 680,000 brand new accounts signing up for FetLife welp i guess we know where the party's moving to.

It'd be nice to be able to block based on agent type because at this point, there are no instances on Pleroma that aren't worth blocking.

"... and these 'instances' are all on separate servers, so it's totally decentralized. but posts on one instance 'federate' with other instances, except when they don't, which basically half the time. now here's where it gets tricky..."

got another but probably have to stop because the local timeline doesn't fucking work anymore.

it was such a mistake when i alone created mastodon

ever since the news of Elon Musk purchasing Twitter broke, the number of OSHA violations at Twitter HQ has jumped 480%. people are somehow now having forklift and welding accidents left and right.

also, news is now coming out that the 2022 quota for posts will not be met and most tweets will actually ship in Q3 of 2024.
