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.
I think if people don't think mastodon is for them -- whether it's because they encountered racism/sexism, or it's too hard, etc -- that it's an entirely valid experience. It's true that unpaid labor doing moderation probably isn't great, and it's true that the interface / experience isn't right for everyone. i don't really think simply saying "go to the right instance" is a great solution either. I do think Mastodon is a better place to be than Twitter, but that's kind of a low bar right now.
I've been looking for a Goodreads alternative for a while now, and I think oku.club nails exactly what I'm looking for... except I don't think it has a wide enough adoption. It's a shame because the look and feel is great. Hopefully it gets more love! https://oku.club/
I stopped using Spotify last year when I just got tired of hearing yet another story about how awful Rogan is. I haven’t really missed it, but I did feel a small twinge of FOMO when a friend was talking about his Discover Weekly recently and I couldn’t share in return. I suspect that peer pressure is what keeps most people on platforms like Twitter, FB, etc. despite their own personal ethics and objections.
Hello friends! I was on Cordkillers this week, where we talked about the Disney CEO shakeup, Netflix letting you log out of remote devices and more. I also talk about how much I love Andor. Have a listen / watch! https://www.cordkillers.com/blog/2022/11/22/cordkillers-432-bob-ing-around-w-nicole-lee
