4 years of people making fun of “toots” and Twitter comes out with “fleets” lol

@Gargron @noiob Mastodon stories, but a ML filter rejects all posts that aren’t cats.

@gargron A tooter on the streets, and a flooter between the fleets.

@Gargron and even worse, in such a way it's clear they never really thought about it…

I am again reminded of how much more sensible this is by comparison. Even if they _are_ called 'toots'.

@Gargron it's extremely funny that this was driven by corporate stakeholders because the lack of stories was evidence that they just "weren't innovating enough"

@Gargron When someone told me what they were called all I could do was loudly blurt out "fuck you"

@Gargron eugen please promsie me that you will never just start slowly turning mastodon into snapchat and hope no one notices

@Gargron If they hadn't forgotten the whole "bird" theme they might've called them "flocks".

And then users could've told them to "flock off". Before, hopefully, migrating.

Let's just go with "farts" and get it over with...

@Gargron Perhaps Twitter learned that aping a trending feature isn't the best way to move the platform forward.
