Weird #mastodon trick / useful bug
Everyone knows by now that you can fake a draft mode by composing a toot, setting its privacy to direct, not @-ing anyone, and clicking "toot!". Then delete+redraft later to edit it again and choose a more public privacy setting or @ someone.
Did you know that if you press reply while editing one of these and say "yes, discard", it will keep any images and image descriptions from the draft, and put them on the reply instead?

This is some serious neo-colonial bs. Who just goes into a poor community in a foreign country and cuts of their water ~for research~ ?!? @Claudia_Sahm said it best: economics is a disgrace.

@ken imo when we call something a model, it needs to be replicated successfully over a range of projects. Needn't be every other project, but still potential early projects needs to be, which imo is not the case with patreon model.
@ken but is that model sustainable especially for early projects? Mastodon may be an outlier and thus survivor bias.
