Here we go again. Fingers crossed this one sticks. 🤞💪✊️

Has anyone done an instance migration? What was it like? Painful? Easy-peasy?
I got on mastodon.cloud 5 years ago and never used it again, and now that I do it seems like I bet on the wrong horse. Wondering if it’s worth moving or not.

Teachers: 20% of Millennials & Gen Z in NY believe Jews caused the Holocaust & nationwide 63% didn't know 6 million Jews were murdered in the Holocaust. Students need to know the Holocaust was caused by unfettered hate.

Me: *buys a mirror*
The internet: Would you like more mirrors?
Me: I have one thanks, it has shipped!
The internet: You need mirrors. More mirrors!
Me: I am good on mirrors...

Me: this is weird, stop with the mirrors

imagine deciding which engineers to keep around based on lines of code and choosing to keep the ones who wrote the MOST

Part of the scam is to define basic bedrock standards of decency as "left" & then, lo, you find "left bias" everywhere you look.

But that's not bias, fellas. That's just people trying to live in a society together.

Congresswoman Vicky Hartzler wept because Respect for Marriage Act passed. Here's her nephew's reaction.

Hey, fellow white people. Listen up.

Black people, Indigenous people, and other people of color do not exist on this site or anywhere to “help” you or teach you how to be less racist, how to understand racism, or how to understand their experience of racism.

They do not owe you explanations, apologies, or education.

They do not owe you a seat at the table.

They do not owe you friendship, conversation, or even acknowledgement.

If you don’t get why, you have a lot of work to do.

Has the Spotify Mac app been randomly corrupting itself for anyone else? Have to re-install it every 3-4 weeks now to get it to launch.

This is truly enraging.

The terrorist who killed 5 people at Club Q boasted during a 2021 bomb threat about his plans to become “the next mass killer.” Knowing this full well, authorities dropped all charges anyway and still let him keep his guns. His records were then sealed to ensure he wouldn't have to face the consequences for his threats to terrorism.

Meanwhile, Tamir Rice played with a toy gun and authorities killed him in 1.7 seconds because they "feared for their lives."

Two Americas.

Don’t believe in God myself, but that said, Raphael Warnock’s God seems a whole lot more godly than the other side’s god.

One World Observatory posted one of my photos to their Insta account instagram.com/p/Cl1O56tOyyk/?i

I'll be accepting all of their likes as "my" likes in my head canon now.

Just used ChatGPT to generate a fake bio for a fake company my friend and I made up, and the response to the prompt was so good I made it a website twatty.co

In 1925, Dr. Cecilia Payne completed her PhD thesis, described as “the most brilliant ever written in astronomy.” At a time when few #women entered academia, Payne discovered what the universe is made of. Her work began a revolution in astrophysics.

Dr. Payne-Gaposchkin became the 1st female professor & 1st female department chair at Harvard. Given most of us remember names like Darwin & Newton, we should also celebrate Payne. #science #space

So wait... the standard-bearer of the Republican Party has called for the "termination" of the Constitution, but it's progressives who don't believe in the rule of law?

We're currently testing an alpha version of Ivory for iOS. As we continue to make progress we will expand access to it. Just follow this account and @tapbots to hear about it first!

We truly appreciate all the love and support in this community! Here’s an XDR-sized desktop background (wallpaper) to hold you over. 🐘

Hello people of the Fediverse! Some of you may have heard that a new Mastodon client, Ivory,  is in development for iOS (and Mac!). This is true! Tapbots is going all in on Mastodon and we hope this place continues to grow and thrive. Tweetbot will continue to be developed alongside Ivory as a lot of code is shared. A new Mac version of Tweetbot and Ivory are also currently in development and we are working hard on getting those towards a public beta state.

"waah waaah mastodon is slow and glitchy sometimes, how can you bear it"

bitch I grew up with dial up. I scrolled endlessly through the hampster dance, half the jpegs broken. I spent an hour looking for and downloading a simple mp3. I waited my 54 minutes to continue watching a ropey stream of true blood with unsynced audio. I still use tumblr. you are like tiny baby

Welp, it only took a couple of weeks but my timeline over here is now just as much covered in anger and fear as it was on Twitter. On the one hand, I guess it means Mastodon is hitting mainstream. On the other, this is what drove me away from Twitter in 2016.

It was nice having fun on these platforms again the last few weeks, but I just don’t need constant panic and doom scrolling in my life. Guess I’ll check back in in a few months.
