Imagine the disappointment if a wolf knew it's descendant would be a pug. That's how your grandpa feels when you share your enthusiasm about tweeting and tooting.

keep thinking I should join a smaller instance, but this is literally the most followers I've ever had on any social network and it turns out narcissism sets in really quickly

Mankind is poised halfway between the gods and the beasts. That's why we are beautiful and horrible. I think most online struggle springs from that dichotomy. The metaverse mirrors real life. If you want to have a chance of changing things, you have to get root cause, and it runs deep, deep inside human nature.

The Amaroq icon has now been moved to my home screen.

Honestly, the CW is a brilliant and thoughtful move. It provides a "heads-up" that what lies ahead may be unsettling to some. What makes it even more thoughtful are the tooters who use the "top line" to give an idea of what the actual content is about. This alone is enough for me to fully embrace Mastodon. I, for one, will be here until the last instance goes offline. Yesterday, Mastodon gained my curiosity. . .today it has won my loyalty.

Ok, so I wrote up a quick piece on the spurious and bullshit "dispute" over the Dec 16 crowdstrike D-30.apk blog post. They made a minor error allowing their credibility to be called into question. I provide additional data + analysis to spike that bollocks: medium.com/@thegrugq/voice-of-

I am originating a new usage of the ✅. I hope it catches on, because in a sense it's mostly used this way now.

As portability is currently quite limited, the checkmark now indicates that I am actively using that instance, and that my other nonchecked instance identities are hibernating.

Y'know what's nice? Seeing the "0 requests blocked" on my adblock widget for this tab.

Tweetdeck's only been loaded for an hour or two on another, and it's got >3k ads blocked.

Goodness only knows what kind of horrors I'd be exposed to if I allowed ads to load over there.

This is like moving into a new flat in the same building. It's all weirdly familiar and smells a bit funny.

One more time, welcome to all my peeps.

I came here for the culture which is not twitters culture. No companies, no jerks, no personal brands, no ironic accounts.

Be nice, be real, or please leave. And remember this is an open source product running on the 1 dev's personal server.

Don't complain and please give the dude some $$$

So we've got a Twitter clone with a ton of new options, but when are we all just going to go back to IRC?

Whoa, the federated timeline is now scrolling away faster than I can read, and the local timeline on mastodon.social is approaching escape velocity. And apparently someone wrote a script that translates every other toot into French.
