4 years of people making fun of “toots” and Twitter comes out with “fleets” lol
@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 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.
In nursing parlance a "fleet" is a very effective enema treatment, https://www.fleetlabs.com/constipation-relief-products/enemas
@Gargron Perhaps Twitter learned that aping a trending feature isn't the best way to move the platform forward.
