@bretcarmichael I got the notification that you replied to me but had to dig in the app to find it. There isn’t a mentions list. Weird.
I could not remember what mastodon server I was on before. Thought this one could have more interesting stuff since it’s bigger. Are you in a different server?
@joeworkman We were first on .cloud. There are more people on this one though.
@bretcarmichael what app are you using?
@joeworkman I’d definitely use it though. I’d be fine getting news from Twitter and connecting with people elsewhere. There’s no real good place to do that.
@bretcarmichael is there seriously no way to view mentions? I have to go to your profile page. Odd.
@bretcarmichael found it. Notifications. Duh
@bretcarmichael what if Tweetbot made its own Mastodon server and made the app support it. I think that it would be game over.
@joeworkman I don’t know. I’d like to think so, but they made an app.net client once, and app.net went the way of the dodo.
@bretcarmichael good point
@bretcarmichael but times have changed. Twitter was not pulling this crap.
@joeworkman True. In Tweetbot’s absence, I enjoy Twitter a lot less.
@joeworkman I Get it, if Twitter want to block third-parties. I don’t like it, but I get it. Facebook doesn’t allow them. That said, the right thing to do it to communicate to the devs, “Hey, we’re ending support of third-party clients in X months. Start looking for another way to feed your families.” It’s analogous to severance, when a company eliminates a position. Making it a surprise, letting them hang, is cruel.
