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.

@m4ngo5 in this case, ACLU is representing Twitter. It looks like the investigation going into deanonymizing this specific account started with a data request to Twitter, and Twitter is fighting the request.

"Soon after Donald Trump’s inauguration, persons critical of the president and his administration began creating anonymous Twitter accounts claiming to be dissident members of the federal government, such as the famous “Alt BLM” and “Rogue POTUS Staff” users.

#Mastodon 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.
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: https://github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/tree/master/docs
- 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.
