Thanks to Morass of Molasses, Trevor's Head and First There Will Be Fires for ruining my neck muscles for the next few days. Really awesome to be going to gigs again!

Looks like kolektiva.social is down, anyone know what's up?

I want to vito the word 'Content Creator' from my lexicon. I think it is unhelpful language that masques algorithm-chasing dross as creativity. "Content creation" surely means that you have something you do that people enjoy, 'content' is just a way of documenting it. Any suggestions of a word that retains any kind of artfulness? I find it difficult lumping in youtube drama videos in with film makers and artists.

Wild, Twitter just straight up deleted the bridged tweet linking back to my original boost from @hearsepileup . No explanation or justification, I can see it from my account, but not others.

Genuinely curious, can any of you see the first reply in this thread? This isn't self promo I just legit want to know what is happening and why.

Not even a mention of mastodon or the fediverse in this article, anywhere.

A reminder that if you migrate to a non-federated social network, you're not actually solving the problem, just encountering it in a new space.

if you have uBlock origin, add this rule to block out Twitter's sidebar with trends, login stuff, and other boring but attention-grabbing addictive nonsense:

twitter.com##[data-testid="sidebarColumn"]

This goes into the "My Rules" list in your uBlock settings.

Make sure "cosmetic filtering" (with the eye symbol) is enabled.

Le jour 10, vaguement dans les temps (oui la fourmi n'a que 4 pattes ; je trouverai du lore pour ça)(c'est faux).

Installing an adblocker is the gateway drug into anti-consumerism, which is in turn the gateway drug into anti-capitalism.

Tell all your friends how to install adblockers.

OMG, IS STARTING TO TREND TOO; PLEASE BE TRUE 🤩😆🎉

Sorry for swearing but for fuck's sake, why is trending on twitter? The very idea that the internet is 'owned' by a small cabal of social media services is exactly why they all need to be burned down. If a few servers can go down and put the net in peril, it's time to build a new network.

Solidarity with whoever's behind Facebook's server outage. Your efforts are commended and I hope there is more to come 🎉

Facebook, whistleblower 

Facebook's internal research: "We estimate that we may action as little as 3-5% of hate and about [0.6%] of V & I [violence and incitement]… We have evidence [that] Facebook and the family of apps are affecting societies around the world."

Frances Haugen, whistleblower: "Facebook has realized that if they change the algorithm to be safer, people will spend less time on the site, they'll click on less ads, they'll make less money."
