I had to deprecate Corebird from the Solus unstable repo today as a result of Twitter killing off their UserStream API ("retiring" it, in their words), officially tomorrow, thereby killing a plethora of third-party apps. So disappointed in the move by Twitter to do this, really enjoy Corebird as well as the numerous Android clients like Fenix and Talon.
I think it's about time I start promoting and encouraging people to switch to Mastodon, as well as starting to use it more heavily myself.

Adobe announces a record $2.2B quarter. Time to plug my article "Creatives, Just Say No to Subscriptions" again: https://blog.freehive.net/just-say-no-to-software-subscriptions/
My wife is an alumni of Marjory Stoneman Douglas HS and is looking to help defray the costs for a student there to attend a 4-week course at her job (the Dauphin Island Sea Lab).
If anyone following me is up for donating a little to help the student to attend that would be AWESOME! Plus, the lab is a non-profit so the donation is tax-deductible.
Please help! Every little bit is appreciated!
