LADY: My cat won't stop mewling

ME: It's okay, I'm a cat whisperer

LADY: Oh, great

ME {whispering to cat}: shut the hell up

This is Tinker, back home after two days and a night missing. She was very hungry and cold, we think she was probably shut in a garage or log store somewhere. There's been much rejoicing tonight, after much tearful searching of woods, roads, rabbit burrows and hedgerows. Happy everyone

Won’t be sharing any tweets but Kanye’s account is active and tweeting again. The anti Semitism, anti lgbtq networked violence machine is coming online. People need to be aware this has the potential to make 2015/16/17 look tame.

Bloomberg reports that Twitter no longer has any working content moderators in the "the entire Asia-Pacific region," except one Korean contractor.

If BTS fans get pissed off, it’s all over. 🤣🤪🫡

A warning about deactivating your birdsite account 

Your Twitter handle can be registered by anyone 30 days after deactivation. If impersonation is in your threat model, lock your account and park it.

Unfortunately, I’m seeing this happening as some press give prominence to the question of whether he actually wants to return to Twitter. This is attention hacking learned from Trump’s reality tv experience. It’s very predictable, it will start from his allies and then he will soon turn to an audience and start asking, “should I go back on Twitter?” Ignore him, he wants and needs back on. All choreographed. mstdn.social/@jasonkint/109374

note to self: I will unfollow anyone who quotes Trump tweets, incl. as screenshots. I won’t be part of the next amplification game. No more ‘rage farms’.

#Hello anyway, I'm the previously tweeter previously known as supermathskid. I've downgraded myself over here on account of not doing any maths for a while. I'm a writer, which is exciting and very cool; I have a byline at IFL Science and a book coming out in May(!)

Hmmm learning about icons at the bottom

CW for content warning - what a fab idea
The little globe icon changes audience (I’ve noticed people suggesting that threads have the audience changed to unlisted to ensure only the first post appears in the stream…)

Also lots of comments about including alt text and leaving hashtags until the end to make it easier for people using screen readers… makes sense to me

There seems to be a lot of misconceptions about how to set up Mastodon.

1. You do not have to sacrifice a duck. Any waterfowl will do.
2. The bit about dancing around naked in a forest glade? While dancing is fun, you may just walk.
3. When the demon appears, you needn’t chant in Latin. It is fluent in all languages.

The rest of the guide is correct.

when you boost yourself it’s called tooting your own horn.
