@Andy_European Everything I've read about the purchase of the birdsite makes me more certain I've made the right choice coming over here.

Oh. So ‘free speech’ isn’t free in Muskworld. Who’d have thunk…

Twitter lovers Mastodon is just a click away (see link in my bio). It’s never too late to do the right thing…

on #FediFriday, i really recommend following the smart people on democracy.town and @stux and @calculsoberic there's a lot of people on both instances that groovy in many ways!

Since we're all showing off our cats, I have four. All originally feral. Three of them are kidney cats and in their late teens and one is still only 12 (and I have his dad too, who was thrown out of a car as they drove past my village and lived under a hedge for 3 years as he healed before deciding to move in one winter). I also have a dog and a lot of wildlife sharing my house and outbuildings, including rather a lot of bats.

We welcome with open arms those who have to flee from Putin’s bombs.

Our Temporary Protection applies to everyone fleeing the war from Ukraine.

Elon Musk is now literally the king of Twitter.

There is nothing stopping him from accessing your direct messages or handing them over to a government—perhaps one in a country where Tesla is trying to do business.

RT @eu_near: The @EU_Commission has proposed today to suspend for one year import duties on all 🇺🇦Ukrainian exports to the 🇪🇺#EU.

This will help alleviate the difficult situation of Ukrainian producers & exporters in the face of Russia's military invasion.

For new people wondering why Mastodon is on thousands of servers instead of one:

-It helps protect us all against Elon Musk scenarios. It's very difficult for anyone to buy a network made of thousands of independently owned servers. (It's the same reason why no one owns the world's email network, because there are so many independent providers out there.)

-If your server misbehaves (or sells out to a malevolent billionaire), you can move your account to a different server, or even to a brand new server. Decentralisation means you're never trapped on a site you hate.

-Mastodon is an open platform where anyone can start their own server, and they don't need tech knowledge if they use a service like masto.host or federation.spacebear.ee

...and there are lots more good reasons too, to do with servers using alternative Fediverse software etc, but I'll save that for a future post 😁
