against what I feel would be disingenuous use of this platform I will set up a twitter bridge...what are some that I can use?

Folks livestream their drawing and art, and I've considered doing the same while working on a mockup or icons or something but I'm not sure there's the same appeal.

I attempted to spin my own Mastodon instance in the cloud the other day but it was too complicated.

I wrote a blog post about what I see as the unethical practice of calling people "users" and how we can do better. samuelhewitt.com/blog/2019-02-

I never know what to toot over here. On Twitter I've generally seen something (on Twitter) that provokes me so I tweet or subtweet about it.

the tactility of the board game is half the enjoyment

trying to get back into chess but playing the computer is no fun

there's some wild masto instances out there

I could do the whole Twitter bridging thing but that's annoying

I'm gonna try and use this more, I put it on my bookmarks bar so I remember it exists.

Wider columns on here on the web would be 👌

Went and got an app for this, Mast on iOS. Pretty nice 👌🏻

Is this where all the FOSS people are since G+ is dead?

🤙 ayyy I'm back (until I forget about using this again)

The overuse of hamburger menus (or overflow menus) is still the worst and Firefox has essentially two (three if you count the overflow menu in the URL bar). Two vague icons in the toolbar that both serve as to represent menus that are catch-alls for a bunch of things.

How everyone got away with the hamburger is beyond me. It's not simplification of the UI it's complication. Simplification would be paring down unnecessary function so you have no need for overflow menus.

I definitely think the Mastodon columns should be wider (for both writing and reading toots), especially when toots make use of the full 500 character limit. IMO, it would make these large blocks of text appear more balanced instead of cramped and stretched.
