I shut down my Twitter and Instagram last week. Instagram and Facebook are their own thing, but with Twitter, it's gotten bad. Despite that I ostensibly enjoyed the chronological timeline of Tweetdeck and third-party mobile clients, I still opened it up on three or four random occasions over the new year to find some big name calling some other big name stupid. There's more to my life than that watching people sling shit.

I think it's kinda weird that the president of the US gets to stay on Twitter after threatening war crimes and cyberbullying children because his tweets are "of public interest" but the president of Syria gets banned...

Not that I'm sympathetic, but it does seem hypocritical and highlights the issues with social media that's controlled by a single US company. Why do they get to enforce their own interests worldwide?

#Facebook has released more of their computer vision road detection results for nearly all countries for """"import"""" into #OpenStreetMap

And the data is bad.

My revolution is entirely boring.

Minimize my participation in systems that hurt
Maximize participation in systems I support
Save resources & money
Gather and practice skills

Buy as local as possible *when possible

Volunteer for community events, political candidates that help humans,
Mutual support of aligned people
Actions

Don't own more than I need
Don't desire what is inaccessible to most

Stay realistic by focusing on money and actions instead of words

So boring I can do this daily

Could this be Twitter realising that it's increasingly out-of-control silo of propaganda is going to be on the wrong side of history? 🙏

twitter will embrace decentralization just like they did with 3rd party developers.

Tired: "men are too emotional to be leaders." *replicates the sexist assumption that unemotionality is always a superior trait and is inherently associated with dominance/authority.*

Wired: "Men aren't emotional enough to be leaders." *Hot take. Asserts the value of traits devalued by patriarchy. Radically re-envisions what leadership ought to look like. Doesn't throw men who experience positive emotions intensely under the bus for being insufficiently "in-control" (read: masculine).*

Seems like the ukpolitics subreddit is scrubbing any mentions so far of the Prince Andrew interview on Newsnight...

I don't like the way oneplus shows the app list, there's no way to sort apps into groups/folders like there was with samsung - it's alphabetical chaos instead of categorical order!

Anyone have suggestions on how I can change this? Haven't done any Android development but am fueled by the discomfort of looking at it - it's the reason I didn't migrate to this phone for the last 4 months =P

jesus christ this post just rung my doorbell and punched me in the face when i answered

Moving from one android phone to another and bringing your data with you should really not be as difficult as I found it today =/
