lmao, according to Chromium devs Chrome getting OOM killed on a device with 12GB RAM is a WontFix if any accessibility features are enabled

BREAKING: Work on Mastodon grinds to halt as CEO Eugen Rochko is questioned by German police, sources report this is in connection with the strict new law mandating witch hats for programmers.

who here remembers the twitter #carp thing?

Nobody, internal or external, could figure out what the fuck was going on with this tweet that included a button saying "Tweet #carp"; Gizmodo ended up finding out that it was some college dude who just bought an ad — it was the product working entirely as designed.

Today, we're releasing some screenshots we took of the internal confusion at the bird site, thinking they'd be funny as fuck in a couple years. Enjoy!

fyi: the data archive in twitter settings is explicitly not complete. for a complete archive you need to fill out this form:
you will need to include a scan of photo id, and i think they'll likely refuse to give you anything if you aren't in the EU

Elon's tweet about the unnecessary microservices reminded me of Wheatley

picking a mastodon server to join is easy -- just think of it like you're allying with one of many families in a war-torn medieval land, each with their own histories, feuds, laws, blood rituals

has anyone actually followed a gnu social account from mastodon via activitypub (it worked before mastodon 3.0, I think, but gnu social took forever to move from ostatus to activitypub)

are you on normal instance software, or one that for some reason supports flash posts

actual threats to the fediverse:

  • venture capitalists
  • embrace/extend/extinguish by big corps
  • centralization
  • protocol fragmentation
  • fascists

non-threats that free speech foss dickheads prefer to focus on:

  • trans + queer people + people of color defederating from other instances to avoid abuse

The thing about Twitter is that it really lacks a lot of the features you'd expect from a true Mastodon replacement.

For example, there's no way to edit your toots (which they, confusingly call "tweets"—let's face it, it's a bit of a silly name that's difficult to take seriously).

"Tweets" can't be covered by a content warning. There's no way to let the poster know you like their tweet without also sharing it, and no bookmark feature.

There's no way to set up your own instance, and you're basically stuck on a single instance of Twitter. That means there's no community moderators you can reach out to to quickly resolve issues. Also, you can't de-federate instances with a lot of problematic content.

It also doesn't Integrate with other fediverse platforms, and I couldn't find the option to turn the ads off.

Really, Twitter has made a good start, but it will need to add a lot of additional features before it gets to the point where it becomes a true Mastodon replacement for most users.
