again a great chance to introduce many new people to the #fediverse.
#Vero is getting hudge attention over #twitter. It's a new social network, co-founded by a capitalist that left thousands of their workers unpaid in a dessert camp, and even stoped food, electricity...suply.
- make that visable
- highlight the anti-capitalist values of the fediverse
- expand on the beauty of federation and free software
-> tweet by using #Vero
-> rt to give tweets higher ranking
-> spread it
So just aheads up since people here have been into it: Vero is apparently run by a fuckhead who at his previous company jsut.... didn't pay a ton of Filipino workers. Also there's only one woman in the company, and she's relagated to customer service.
They also have some VERY dodgy lines in the TOS about their rights to work posted on the site.
So maybe don't post art there out of caution. Here's a Twitter thread with sources: https://twitter.com/_heyheytyler/status/968301107536523265
Like wow, seriously:
To be advertised to
On an app designed to limit engagement
While they grab your phone number, encourage you to use your real name (irrelevant, because they have your fucking phone number) and sell you content you could just search for. Oh, and the subscription fee basically means they're selling your content (and everyone else's) to each other.
This is a foolish app and a dumb idea and a waste of tiiiiiiime.

Apparently Imzy is shutting down next month: https://www.imzy.com/imzy/post/imzy_is_shutting_down
This makes me really sad. Imzy was a great site with a lot of really neat little communities.

My current stance is that Milan should be suspended or silenced from toot.cat (@ashkitten handled this yesterday) and I'm thinking about blacklisting for social.techncs.de due to its abysmally bad moderation practices (the latest of which is here: https://social.tchncs.de/users/milan/updates/70472)
