It’s 2.5 screens on my phone.
Since I can’t quote tweet it, this is intentional garbage that makes using social feeds unusable and is the reason there was such a huge backlash about the 280 on twitter.
Extremely great jams at the sushi restaurant.
@gaditb that’s not how I saw it used on twitter, but I have a smallish account there, the thing I saw used for *that* was usually a screenshot of the tweet, sometimes with a name edited out, and so to me it seems like a bad technical solution to a problem some instances are using human moderators to fix anyway, or someone could report, if it’s an abusive disagreement. Anecdotally, I just figured out what “lrt” means an actual week ago despite being on twitter for like 7 years
@gaditb I’m a way, masto encourages you to talk to everyone, where twitter tends to focus more on friends of friends, or the people who you follow follow. Rarely do i get more than three steps out, vs what the federated feed on this small server is like which is close to being busier than my twitter.
@gaditb so I’ll be straight up, no quoting and the flat structure of threads kills me, personally. I love the weird stuff you can do with twitter threading and I think it supports multiple lines of thought better. Replying to something I quote RTd is also important to me. Searching for people is also pretty bad and for better or worse I can’t be fully here until the people from Twitter I follow are. Masto is good but also it’s trying too hard to be twitter except wen it isn’t
So there's very little likelyhood this'll actually get seen by any of the current influx of people coming in off of Twitter, but I wonder what their initial reactions are to any of our other deliberate design differences are? Like, the only-hashtags searching, the no quoting, etc.?
So my iPod had a bunch of stuff put on it in March 2013. Do I refill it or do I keep it as a time capsule of five years ago?
Hmmmmmm. Do I need (or “need”) a Mac Server G3 and a(nother) multiple scan 20 display? I need to drive to Phoenix today anyway.

What was I listening to four years ago?
It appears to be working so I'm not super pressed. If maintaining it is essentially just a matter of waiting until FreeBSD's packagers update it and then running their updates, I'm not too worried about it.
