or: "twitter as a technical product isn't the problem" (a thread) https://twitter.com/gravislizard/status/913074147625799680
The argument appears to be less about himself and more about the everyone else on twitter he sees and interacts with https://twitter.com/search?q=gravislizard%20mastodon&src=typd
@calvin @bhtooefr well like, I know gravis isn't moving, for a few different reasons, chief among them being essentially the perception that masto's a weird internet libertarian fever dream and that the different technical features may or may not "do anything" -- whether the new feeling (and, I feel that the "feeling" of twitter not caring is newer) will change that, IDK. I of course can't find the thread because twitter search is awful.
@calvin right? This isn't even for anything specifically. Although the bit about the SDP40F was pretty interesting, because it was given up on primarily for derailing so often, which it did for a pretty specific reason, which basically has to do with it being from the '70s, not the '80s.
I accidentally spent most of the day looking at Wikipedia's pages about EMD locomotives. Whoops.
Also, side note: boosting a toot just sounds wrong.
hanging out with Julie at The Place.
Early Bird Site felt sort of like yelling into a void. Modern, feels like yelling into a void with your online friends. Mastodon feelsl ike the extremely libertarian version of that, where you don't have any friends yet.
