The history of referring to Twitter on here going through some faster evolutions recently:

2016
“bird site” 🐥

2020
“that other site” 🙅

2022
- April
“Musk’s site” 💰🕴🏻💰

- May
“Hellbird” 🔥🦅🤑🦅🔥

@continuation i'm resistant to this just because it sounds like it should be something cool, like "the f-69 hellbird can store up to 420 supersonic micro-nuke missles and can do a barrel roll at mach 6 without spilling whatever you put into the cup holder"

@carcinopithecus @continuation I'm legitimately mildly annoyed at how many extremely cool words are taken by military stuff.

Raytheon should've been a Pokemon.

@carcinopithecus @continuation I think the military aircraft aesthetic is perfect for something that looks cool at first but turns out to be a tool for awfulness.

@continuation over on Hellbird I sometimes affectionately refer to this as "the elephant site", which is a compliment because elephants are awesome.

@continuation I like how my instance has an emojo with the shortcode birdsite but a very hellbird graphic: :birdsite:
