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.

@Gargron
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.
