- Tusky or Mastalab are the most mature options. Subway Tooter is extremely functional, but also extremely plain-looking.
- Amaroq or sign up for the @tootapp beta.
Pinafore also works on mobile! (picture 3)
ugh i really hope crossposters don't slowly choke mastodon like they did to diaspora*
if you're just crossposting everything you tweet on birdsite then what even is the point of making a mastodon account? that's glorified spam at worst, and a recipe for abandonment.
imagine a smooth horse. just the slickest, most frictionless horse

And honestly, the biggest environmental challenge is not having ready access to a support net. No healthcare or psychologists. No guarantee I can fix anything if it breaks, like that 6 months I spent without a working computer. No guarantee of food in my stomach or a roof over my head. All this is like an omnipresent miasma.

Maybe it's just something i'll need antidepressants for? But I feel like there should be a way to break this ingrained habit of mindlessly refreshing feeds when there isn't anything new. At least I don't feel like I have to read everything here on Mastodon, though! That's a huge plus. I just feel like relevance is utterly warped outside of this space, e.g. YouTube.
I need to put in the energy to foster a healthy environment, and I'm maybe halfway there?

I feel like I've made progress overall, but I still find myself unable to do the things I want to do. The last thing I need to overcome is the sense of boredom at feeling like I have nothing to do. I need to relearn how to dedicate my time once again. And I don't really know how to do that, with all the existential angst and the general stress of wondering how my life is going to continue, how I'm going to survive.
you'd think that this meant everyone was having a nice clean wholesome day online, but no... you'd be so incredibly wrong...
Did you know that Beef Bowl is a registered trademark of Yoshinoya America?
My milkshake brings all the boys to the yard and they're like "wow this is delicious and affordable" and I'm like "thank you for supporting my small independent business"
@RecursiveRabbit Ooh, I like this... although after more research the root word is actually not "angel", it's "evangel", the archaic term for "gospel"! Its antonym is "layman".
For the original question, I think I'll settle on "devil's advocate", which serves a similar purpose but not 100% analogous to "spreading the word".
The New Yorker dropped a piece today on Linus Torvalds and the sexist culture of abuse within Linux. Turns out Linus's apology came after they contacted him for comment. https://www.newyorker.com/science/elements/after-years-of-abusive-e-mails-the-creator-of-linux-steps-aside
what's the devilish equivalent of the word "evangelist"
Hell yeah I study STEM
one of my favorite Pokemon is based on one of my favorite cryptids
Disabling all phone notifications from social media apps (not IM, only stuff like Mastodon, Twitter and other) is one of the best decisions I've taken in my life. If you have the possibility to do it please consider it. It's been a huge improvement for my mental health.
@maloki Whiteness isn't a race, it's a socioeconomic status that has dropped and added people to its umbrella term as it sees fit and has no culture inherent to itself because it's simply a caste.
Ask any Polish or Jewish person who lived through holocaust denial or colonialism how 'white' they felt.
ok, if people walk next to us, we gotta run away. it's what we do. as soon as you see someone within like three feet of you, book it
*other cats jot this down in their... cat notebooks? whatever*
k but the thing is, and make an asterisk here, if they're trying to step OVER you, or walk in the path you're laying in, don't move. demand control. that is your spot & you should never leave even long after they've passed
*cats writing this down also, one scratches its head*
