Pinned toot

Oh my ahura mazda, people like my joke and I have accidentally ten times as much followers as before, and stars enough to fabricate a moderately sized nebula.
Now how to tell them that I am boring and not funny? πŸ™ƒ

βœ… All links on Mastodon count as 23 characters, no matter how long they really are

URLs can be as long as you want, they will never exceed 23 characters of your limit.

There is no need to use a link shortener!

It's obvious to me but apparently it bear repeating: Trump's ban from #Twitter isn't the start of a slippery slope, it's the very end of one. It is the account that violated their own Terms of Service the longest without being suspended.

They even built an entirely new feature around his account because the last thing they wanted is to suspend it for engagement reasons. The little panels indicating that his tweets were possibly misleading the public about an election were just a workaround to keep his account online as long as possible.

Meanwhile, antifascist and women accounts have been suspended even without clear violation of the Twitter terms of service, just because an alt-right mob bogusly reported one of their tweet. So if Twitter wasn't coming for *you* before they banned Trump, they will not come for you next, you haven't been anywhere near Trump in terms of importance for Twitter's own business.

Just deleted 1.09 billion (1097142511) rows from a database. It felt good.

Funny when a 8000+ member network start sending out with misconfigured settings and bans itself automagically. Good riddance.

Yesterday a ~6000 members started to hosts en masse. Watch out.
