I have encountered more image descriptions on Mastodon in 24 hours than I have in Twitter in a couple of years. Seriously. I'm not exaggerating.
As a blind person, this means a lot to me. If you read this and you describe your images, thank you so, so, so much on behalf of all of us. If you don't, now you know you'll be helping random Internet strangers make sense of your posts by typing in a few more words than usual.

Metatext already has the option to change all instances of “toot” to “post”, I think I might change the default to be “post” but still leave the “toot” option in honor of its history

Hi I'm looking for work again

Notable experience: I wrote the Mastodon documentation and I help manage Pixelfed

Resume: resume.abdullahtarawneh.com/

Looking for documentation, technical writing, could also do Github issue triage or junior programming, project/product management

Can be either a permanent role or a temporary contract thing

Which portmanteau of “animal” and “architect” is better?

The first Metabolist Monthly Mascot is ready and it is great, very excited to reveal it May 1st :blobpeek:

Pleased to report that @jomc and I are speaking at a free online event hosted by the Internet Archive and Library Futures on Apr 28. We will be discussing her book Lurking, and what happened when "in the 1990's and early aughts, people became users, and users put their trust in a corporation to do the job of a library."

Decided to add Esperanto to Metatext’s target languages on CrowdIn, if someone actually does translate it I’ll add a switch to set the app to it

Every device should let you set your language to Esperanto imho

Second: Metabolist is looking to commission its first mascot!

Metabolist will pay $100 USD to an artist for a mascot that will be this account's header image for the month of May.

This month's theme: 🐻 A Bear 🐻

It is weird that macOS / iOS doesn’t come with an equivalent to MS Paint
