We're excited to announce the ActivityPub conf 2020 keynotes!
Opening up the conference we have a panel featuring the editors/authors of the ActivityPub panel: Jessica Tallon (@tsyesika), Amy Guy (@rhiaro), Erin Shepherd, and Evan Prodromou, with me moderating! (Hear from everyone else this time!)
Wrapping things up is Darius Kazemi (@darius) presenting "Let's Play and Win Our Own Game"!

Update: Marqueece Harris-Dawson's Twitter account is still suspended. Yes, Twitter has suspended the account of a sitting city council member.
Not that I think this would be necessary; there is no one in the administration with the competency and the sophistication to adopt this space as an option.
@Gargron At least with a trademark you could have a bit more control over that.
@Gargron unsolicited advice but I think that you should have trademarked "Mastodon" much earlier in the game. Now you have sites using different top-level domains that all purport to be "Mastodon" and it's a huge source of confusion.
Just a non-specific reminder to periodically review third-party app access to your Twitter accounts:
@christa if you're looking for alternatives and decide down the road to resume a presence in this space, something a bit simpler could be to use the ActivityPub plugin within WordPress. Other things to look at could potentially be Write.as/WriteFreely. At least you're not throwing any more money at Bezos though.
@mastodonusercount Looks like someone's spinning up a big instance right now.
