2007: twitter.com
2017: bingus.planet, gay.water.source

It's kinda weird to think about a social network where businesses own their own presences, rather than relying on a capricious third party service like Twitter or Facebook. Imagine NBC or The Verge running a Mastodon instance for their reporters to toot from, or Bethesda operating an instance for PR and customer support. No more lost business when Facebook changes their algorithms again because they need more money from boosted posts.

Weird, right?

what if I make this account my primary shitposting account

Since Tusky doesn't support multiple accounts yet, I'm going to switch the account I'm using to my icosahedron account.

That way I should hopefully ease out the server load a bit, since push notifications and whatnot.

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

I think I should put in a little disclaimer before continuing:

1) Retweets !== endorsements.
2) Opinions expressed here are of my own. It *definitely* does not represent that of my friends, my family, or my employer.

the great thing about open source is that instead of screaming into the void and then receiving bad features you never asked for, everything is broken but you shrug it off because no one has any money anyways

Since I'm considering instance-hopping, I'm going to promote my other accounts:

icosahedron.website: @resir014@icosahedron.website
tiny.tilde.website: @resir014@tiny.tilde.website
quitter.se: @resir014@quitter.se

Federation, Mastodon 

I'm slightly annoyed at the people from other GNU Social non-mastodon servers being asshole-ish. They're under no obligation to be helpful, so they don't need to whine while refusing to.

Lmfao the Mashable writer thinks the Walmart account is actually Walmart @resir014 cc @five

wow mastodon censors out your private key if you post it. that's really smart

-----BEGIN RSA PRIVATE KEY-----
-----END RSA PRIVATE KEY-----

okay look
#mastodev, there needs to be a brainstorm on something:
a lot of users are concerned about cross-instance users using their username and impersonating them

what would be a good and userfriendly way to fix this?
gnu social doesn't even have a fix for this yet, it seems, so...

Any idea on when multi-account support will come to Tusky? @Vavassor
