@samis @calvin @bhtooefr The attitude seems to be "I can write a web app too, and make it like twitter but not be twitter" which gravislizard sort of addressed as being against the point of twitter, something mastodon fixes by being interconnected. (I mean, we're having this 4-person threadconvo across three servers, like email but faster.)
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.
Had breakfast yesterday
Got a client for my phone.
more thoughts on the #280 - one of the things I do on bird-tweets is I will basically workshop ideas for a blog entry, which often makes more sense because each tweet is a sentence. However, each toot can be a few sentences. If I write a reply to this, the reply will extremely not make sense on its own. I could still add more sentences. My worry is that separating points will be more difficult for me when it ultimately comes time to clean it up in Word/OneNote for writing.
thinking about the #280 again. On Twitter, some jokes come packaged as short threads that work primarily to hide the punchline, creating a synthetic (but well functioning) delivery timing.
Spreche ich auch ein bisschen Deutsch, aber es ist wie babydeutsch.
