Mastodon is a trip because people are like, “Content Warning: Twitter exists.”
@anildash Lolol 😂😂
@anildash There's a reason for that: lots of folks have had nasty experiences on Twitter and don't want to read endless screeds on how Twitter is terrible. They know first-hand.
Kind of how after a nasty relationship you'd rather not be reminded about the other person in random conversation.
@craigmaloney I’m pretty acutely award of the problems. I think not mentioning the mere existence of it is a bit much.
@anildash I understand, but I've been asked gently by folks who have feelings about it. So I CW it.
It helps me be kind to others and mindful of their needs.
@anildash [reluctantly looks up from Mastodon] Twitter is still around?
@anildash yeah, I almost feel like I mustn't mention either site on the other site... O_o
@anildash TBH I would watch an hour long standup special where you exclusively riff on the foibles of various social network sites past and present

Generalistic and moderated instance.
