Twitter is increasingly driving me mad... so back to Mastodon once in a while?

Oh yeah. The typical early adopter issue... all the nerd are all men! Thanks @alper & @po8crg for the follows, and @superglaze for the idea I should join Mastodon... now let's make this more mainstream and less male!

@superglaze Oh and maybe I might try running my own instance too ;-)

@superglaze And Twitter's API changes killing Tweetbot is what also pushed me over the edge. Let's see if this can be used for politics too :-)

@superglaze Saw something you posted elsewhere... so I am finally on Mastodon, and my first toot is to you!

Recently, the handling of online defamation has become a hot topic on many mass media as well as social media channels. News Article for Reference: https://www.jiji.com/sp/article?k=2020052500387 In response to these reports, it is expected that lawsuits and disclosure requests will become more publicly known; and government agencies will order stricter enforcement in addition to tightening regulations. However, under the current state of Japan, we will not be able to handle the increase of such administrative burdens and will have trouble dealing with it appropriately. Thus, we have decided to stop providing our service on mstdn.jp and mastodon.cloud starting June 30, 2020. We are very sorry for the inconvenience and appreciate your understanding on the matter.
