Will saying "toot" eventually come to sound normal, like iPad, or forever induce juvenile chuckles, like squirting to a Zune?
mastodon is twitter if twitter was just people talking about installing their own twitter instance
Best practice for publishing one’s Mastodon ID? I was about to tweet my Mastodon HTTPS URL, but then realized that that’s a bit like publishing one’s email address without anti-bot obfuscation.
I worked for a company in the past―a distributed company. We had a policy that all developers should be able to recreate their development environment within an hour of putting a bullet through their current one. Good policy. Kept everything distributed, and lightweight :)
Let's try again, this time with feeling:
I may need an emergency commission made for me from today until Monday mid-day (CEST), I need it by 14.00 the latest.
It is banners and header for my Twitch channel.
My already commissioned artist has run in to some trouble, and may refund
My budget is $200.
If you are an artist and have time to help me within this timeframe, please send me a link to your previous work so I have a few to look at tomorrow.
OK y'all! http://tooter.today is live and ready to help your friends find places to toot from! It provides scored instances in an easy-to-use fashion for new users and helps onboard them to tinier instances. Please help me load-test it by boosting it across the fediverse! :)
Next to come is a nice home page with explanations of the fediverse!

You know instance admins can read your direct messages in the fediverse? Twitter and Facebook also can - and sometimes do - read your private messages, and they have infrastructure to comply with law enforcement requests. I'd love to see some end-to-end encryption built into Mastodon clients.
This morning I am luxuriating in the character limit.
It's like moving to a nice spacious townhouse after years of living in a shoebox apartment.
for any pals learning another language (like French for example) duolingo is good but there's another free app called memrise that's also good!
I have a hard time writing “toots”. Still calling them “posts” for now.
