Sometimes I find tooters that look like interesting follows, but 80% of their content is French and I don't speak/understand Français. I might need to learn...

I have no doubt you've heard of these United Airlines shenanigans, including the statement from the CEO Oscar Munoz. You may have even forgotten the Pepsi faux pas of last week. But don't. Oscar Munoz worked at Pepsi before he worked for United Airlines. Mind-blown. 

You know instance admins can read your direct messages in the fediverse? Twitter and Facebook also can - and sometimes do - read your private messages, and they have infrastructure to comply with law enforcement requests. I'd love to see some end-to-end encryption built into Mastodon clients.




(also, like, why is namecheap so cheap? i'm used to domains being like $15-20 per year. i have missed something in the interim where i was trying to stay on the wagon and not amass novelty domain names)

Dad joke: Did you hear about the cheese factory that exploded in France? 

The good thing about mastodon being insanely delayed now is that at least we know that when it's overloaded af it's just gonna run slow, not crash completely

Mastodonners (n.): Furries who fooled infoseckers into also becoming furries.

There are NO checkmark verifications on this instance or any other. People just put emoji in their display names for a joke

The year is 2017. The door to Mastodon has been sealed. Those inside toot for survival.

update: Admins can now easily close registrations with a custom message. In other news, I have closed registrations to mastodon.social for now ensure a quality of service for all existing ones, and to promote other federated nodes.

social media is better when it's a bunch of strangers on the internet sharing their internal monologue with nobody in particular

So, about this Mastodon thing (still learning):
- mastodon.social is to Mastodon what gmail.com is to email,
- like in email @usernames are only unique within a given server,
- MAXLEN=500 here,
- RTFM: github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/
- enough people already asked about end-to-end encrypted DMs. There are no.
- no one asked about e2e signed toots though yet?
- if you believe you're trustworthy enough, consider using the ✅ character to let others know they can trust you.
