Mastodon 2.0: The Big Emoji Update https://medium.com/@Gargron/mastodon-2-0-e93d9d28dbb9
The reason #Twitter won't ban Trump is because he's the only thing keeping the site relevant at this point. They're losing users hand-over-fist and they're desperately grasping at toxic relevance. We all know it.
If they ever decide to go ahead and ban him, it'll be a PR move and nothing more.
Here are some of the major features of the upcoming v2.0 as of now:
- Custom emojis
- New emoji picker
- New emoji images (twemoji)
- Emoji autosuggestions
- Ability to define themes for admins and select a theme in preferences for users
- No more private toots sent over OStatus
- When only one image/gif attached to toot, it's displayed uncropped in detail/public view
- New error page with elephant friend
I dunno, would you be happy with just that?

I love everyone and I hate everything. You're all so wonderful and the world is such a steaming pile of shit I don't know how to reconcile it.
I have conflict.
I did it. Quit Facebook. I had many personal reasons, but philosophically, what moved me was Aral Balkan’s critique based on cyborg ontology and theory of surveillance capitalism. This, combined with a vision for decentralized planetary democracy, combined also w/ @Rushkoff's point about it just not being nice to your friends to link them there (like poor hygiene, or knowingly spreading a disease) finally broke my inertia.
This article sums up the argument well: https://ar.al/notes/encouraging-individual-sovereignty-and-a-healthy-commons/ ~ @aral

Where my grandmother worked, they had problems with snacks and other food items disappearing, figuring they were being eaten by the night cleaning crew, right out of people's desks and the fridge.
She decided to bake some ex-lax brownies and have everyone put them in their desk. The brownies were gone the next day when they came in.
They never had a problem with any food disappearing ever again.
