I don't care about follows/clout/etc on the verse. What matters is the interactions, the forging of friendships and how a group of people can make your hour/day/week feel special.

As a whole social media has become a monster, it's lost the social and become more about shouting into the void.

Here on the verse the void not only shouts back, it boosts you, comforts you, chats and laughs with you, helps you and much, much more.

Toxicity has the potential to poison every platform eventually, but so long as we push it out, de-federate its origin and quarantine it through isolation to the fringes, the verse will always feel like home.

This has been my TED talk, thank you for listening, keep being awesome. 🚀

"I don't believe our species can survive unless we fix this (social media). We can not have a society, in which, if two people wish to communicate, the only way that can happen is, if it's financed by a third person who wishes to manipulate them."

I’m gonna need some consensus here so I can decide what to believe

the most ominous thing i've ever heard: in response to an offhand comment trying to deter a salesman about coming back in 2-3 months, he just straight deadpanned to us "in 2-3 months none of us will remember this"

Fit bits are just Tamagotchis for adults but turns out you're the blob you're trying to keep alive.
