It is worth noting that auto-delete capabilities are built into Mastodon as of version v3.5.0 which is really cool!

The settings can be found in Settings => Automated post deletion (or by visiting /statuses_cleanup on your instance)

I've been working on this story on how location-tracking firm Anomaly Six proposed to combine its surveillance with Twitter firehose partner Zignal Labs for a long time and it's finally up.

I woke up this morning to find a Twitter thread I posted yesterday about the massive number of hacks against Russia, and DDoSecrets, went viral. It's at 20k likes and notifications are scrolling by way too fast to follow
