new users, looking for apps? some alternatives to the web app: Show more
- Tusky or Mastalab are the most mature options. Subway Tooter is extremely functional, but also extremely plain-looking.

When I make the same posts on mastodon and twitter:
Twitter: maybe 1 like
Mastodon: 12 boosts, 18 likes
On the one hand, this shows that people here are more into the kinds of shit I post, which makes me feel like I've found the right place to be...
On the other hand, 10-20x more engagement on things makes me feel more popular than I actually am, which is weird
"I wonder," said the robot, "do you think I am human?"
"You feed me, and stroke me, and you are warm to sit on," said the cat.
"Does that make me human?"
"No. But tell me, do you enjoy my company?"
"I do," said the robot.
"That is all I ask of any human," said the cat.

Here is the Anarchism of Blackness btw https://roarmag.org/magazine/black-liberation-anti-fascism/ Well worth a read....as is everything in Roar magazine.
That said, I do think that the impulse here comes from a sense that there is wisdom and solution in the polity and this has been evidenced in many cases. Racists lose their jobs, their apartments, their social status . Call-out culture undoubtedly has its limits, but call out culture/ostracism is a step up from outright impunity which is often the result of appeals to the state. However, embracing and strengthening non-state security and justice could move us further.

Racist attack? Pickup that cellphone and hit RECORD. Black people get more justice from exposing racism on Facebook or Twitter than any appeals to the state https://blavity.com/white-woman-called-a-black-man-a-nr-over-a-parking-spot-and-his-wife-wasnt-having-it I think this is the point Samudzi and Anderson were trying to make in the Anarchism of Blackness. We can't try to reform what is so patently antiblack. My point is FB and Twitter are no substitute for true security/justice.
