I have always missed all the early twitter development chat that died when they ratfucked the ecosystem. It was fun talking about what social networking COULD be about, instead of how Ev, Biz and Jack could miss the forest for the trees almost every day,

The fastest way to get your favorite Twitter user to join the Fediverse is simply to ask them for a link to their account on the Fediverse so you can follow them!

It's as simple as that.

The more people that ask journalists and other professionals to provide them with their link to their Fediverse profile, the more people will sign up and create one. #fediverse #twitter #exodus #mastodon #pleroma

⚠️ #Mastodon v3.1.2 is out with an important security fix:

github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/

Likewise, v3.0.2 and v2.9.4 have been released to port this fix to older versions.

The Smithsonian announced today that they have released 2.8 million images into the public domain (CC0 license). In celebration of this I made a bot you can follow that will post one random image from the set every 8 hours:

Attention #Mastodon sysadmins! A new release with some security fixes will drop on Thursday, prepare to upgrade -- we'll release 2.9.x, 3.0.x, and 3.1.x versions to make sure you have the easiest time upgrading for this.

Just a friendly driving tip from a 27 yr veteran truck driver. If you are passing a large tractor trailer. Mash the gas and GO! Dont slow down like you are trying sneak past a sleeping dog.
Dont linger around us. We literally can not see you. And the longer you are there the higher the chance that something could happen. So mash the gas and tote that ass on by. Please!

#Mastodon 3.1 is out! 🎉

github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/

Among other things, bookmarks, admin announcements with emoji reactions, improvements to mod tools and loads of other fixes!

Hey #fediverse experts. I'd like to host an instance for an #environment #protection #ngo but since they obviously care about resources and I heard that #mastodon has a heavy footprint I struggle to find a middle ground. Do you have ideas what to do about it? I e.g. heard about #rustodon but it is nothing near production ready yet.

Boosting is highly appreciated. :)

Dino 0.1 is released! 🎉

Dino is a secure and open-source application for decentralized messaging. It uses the XMPP (“Jabber”) protocol and is interoperable with other XMPP clients and servers. We aim to provide an intuitive, clean and modern user interface.

🎉 First release candidate for #Mastodon 3.1.0 is out for testing:

github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/

There are security-related fixes, improvements of admin functions like search by IP, announcements, bookmarks, and more.

if you're starting an "instance of one" you *really* need to fully examine your options before choosing a particular piece of software. I would recommend doing your homework before jumping directly into this.

Now releasing: FediverseCast episode 3!

In this episode I talk about how the Fediverse doesn't actually solve any of social media's problems... but how it might!

Put your phone down. Step away from the computer. Not forever, just for a couple minutes.

Now we're going to war and I'm still angry about those kids in cages.

USPol 

I called my Representative this afternoon to lodge a request that she urge House Judiciary to introduce new articles of impeachment for Trump's catastrophic mishandling of the situation in Iraq and Iran. (I also took the opportunity to remind her that Flint still doesn't have potable water.)

If you live in the US, when you get the chance, I suggest you do the same. (Representatives also have email contact via their government website, if you're phone-anxious.)

Why don't public agencies run ActivityPub compliant web services? If I'm being taxed at least that public money should fund a fellow fedi admin.
