"This is Europe", Mario Draghi's address to the European Parliament, the speech every #European needs to listen (English subtitles available).
Today is #EuropeDay.
It marks the 72nd anniversary of the Schuman Declaration, a starting point for the EU as we know it today.
Only through unity and solidarity are we able to maintain the European project. Together we are stronger.

Did you see the news that all of the #JWST instruments are aligned now?
Check out this comparison of one of the newly released calibration images from the MIRI instrument compared to images taken of the same region of space by the WISE and Spitzer space telescopes! Look at that resolution! So many newly resolved stars and structures! 🤩
I can't wait for all the new discoveries we'll make with JWST! #Science data starts in only a couple months!

Welcome to all of you, tiled windows fans who are uncomfortable with your data becoming private property of the richest man on earth.
Welcome Twitter refugees. There’s enough room for you here (and, by the way, we know how to make the best use of a given available space. That’s what Regolith is about ;-) )
As one of the main Mastodon developers, I can't promise you that Mastodon will be a complete and exact Twitter replacement for you, but it may fit your use-cases, at least it does for me.
Just keep in mind that it is not exactly the same thing, some core design decisions are different (there isn't an unique centrally-governed website, but many interconnected servers operated by different individuals and organizations) and thus the tradeoffs can be different as well.
While I personally don't think Mastodon should aim at being an exact replacement to Twitter, I do hope Mastodon can be useful to more people wanting an alternative to Twitter! And I know there are lots of room for improvement, on things we do know, and on things we don't.
Also keep in mind that Mastodon is developed by only two core developers payed through a non-profit funded through sponsorship, grants and donations, so please be patient!
