It would be funny AF if Twitter would die off because everyone moved to a platform named after an extinct animal. Irony +1. #Mastodon

Wait, what? 1055 more?
What is this thing installing?
tl;dr: stop changing UI around to be cool. It messes people up and then they don't upgrade.
And why I -still- remain on the CLI for a good chunk of my work, and I deeply, deeply resent the debian linux folks for changing to 'ss' from 'netstat' even though it's fewer characters - muscle memory works for words as well.
Or on Android, changing how to find the part of the UI that dictates the kind of action your phone takes when plugged into a USB source - whether charge only, or making a drive available, or what.
Or windows, and why people remain with XP even still - because they know how to find what they want to do on that interface.
This specifically applies to, for instance, the changes in UI on twitter and people's inability to figure out how to control the scope of their tweets' visibility.
Y'know, when I have a moment for my head NOT to be buried six layers deep in dependencies, I'm going to have to write up a nasty note about how changes in UI are a significant problem for infosec in that users are trained to perform actions-on-interface, rather than understanding what the dev's intent for those specific parts of the interface are; thus, changes cause behavioral problems.
This is awful and a privacy nightmare!
