New micro-post in a introductory series to data science concepts: Clustering metrics: Dunn index - ruivieira.dev/micro/8/

Got a security update from developer.twitter.com/. Forgot I even used it. Here's my bad experience with it:

I was trying to deploy a generative art bot on birdsite. Opened a dev acc (with a secondary email, since you can't associate a bot with your primary acc) and providing my *personal phone number* was mandatory. I reluctantly complied. Deployed the bot and it was suspended after a single tweet as malicious/spam.

I closed the account, went to botsin.space and started having fun in 5m.

Holy crap, google is apparently taking down all/most fediverse apps from google play on the grounds that that some servers in the fediverse engage in hate speech. At least three apps I know of anyway and I'd imagine the others will follow soon under the exact same reasoning.} Seems to be the case with Husky, Fedilab, and "subway" tooter.

this is a scary precedent if google play is going to ban any apps that can in any way be used to access content with hate speech. So what about a forum client, do they take that down just because there is a forum somewhere on the internet posting hate speech?

This is particularly worrisome because for most people Google Play is the only way they understand to install apps at all.

Picture attached of one of the notices received by fedilab.

I've made a patch for just this feature at gist.github.com/christianp/629, though it's only really useful in conjunction with the rest of my mathstodon branch, which uses MathJax to render LaTeX in toot content: github.com/christianp/mastodon
