So you just arrived here from twitter and it's quiet. Real quiet. That's because there's no algorithm here designed to drive engagement(which equals profit).

Here, you are the algorithm. It's up to you to find and follow people that are interesting to you. You can also see who they follow and who else follows them, as you build it up, it gets more interesting.

Also, if you find people you don't like or entire instances you don't like, you can mute or block them. You are in control.

Does the official mastodon iOS app not have any way to view the local and federated timelines?

Might keep me using toot tbh, though I do really like the official app so far.

The worst feeling is when you unwrap a peanut butter cup, remove the paper cup, pop it in your mouth, and then taste paper.

It's like, wtf I took off the cup. But it was double-cupped.

Very curious that the effective response to a global crisis is to stop all the shitty parts of capitalism as quickly as possible. Suspend rents, interest, loans, provide people with healthcare, and the ability to get food. The host body is in trouble and the parasite ceases

Why does my cat feel the need to be on my makeup bag instead of, idk, my bed or the multiple cat beds in my bedroom.

What is a fully-qualified IP address? Is it...

@LottieVixen Hey so I can't log into toot.cat on any of my other devices. This one was already logged in which is how I have access now, but anywhere else I am simply sent back to whatever page I was on when I attempt to log in. No errors or anything :/

Neat! Toot.cat is looking spiffy on the glitchsoc fork. Nice job @kity, @woozle, and friends!

@LottieVixen o hai I didn't realize you helped admin this mastodon! Awesomeeeee!

I guess mastodon instances can fill in here somewhat but Tumblr's got a much nicer UX for that sort of content.

Man. Someone should make a new Tumblr-killer but with a promise that (consensual, legal) adult content will always be allowed.

Independent blogs are great and all but tumblr really shined with content discovery and whatnot. It's gonna be difficult to replace.

My favorite part of Mastodon is I can trash-talk Comcast and not get a response like "Hi! We're sorry to hear that. We really care about you!"

The Declaration of War against Cryptography (aka "The 2nd War against Cryptography") has been issued by the "Five Eyes":

Some choice extracts as an image for posterity attached to this toot and the close:

"Should governments continue to encounter impediments to lawful access to information necessary to aid the protection of the citizens of our countries, we may pursue technological, enforcement, legislative or other measures to achieve lawful access solutions."

I ate a yummy chimichanga today, drenched in queso. Behold the chimichanga in all its glory.

I will always favourite photos of cats.

On the internet, everyone knows you're a cat — and that's totally okay.
