There's just really no way to stop people from telling you what's happening on Twitter huh
@Louisa Haven't figured one out yet.
Sorry sorry. Three years later and I'm still trying to cut back.
@xenophora it's tough! It's designed to draw you in
I have no account there anymore. I just need to get better about not reading any comments. I work so hard to forget the worst-of-the-worst *~*brand-builders*~* and then like an ass I read 1-2 comments and have to think about those same buffoons all over again. :o
@Louisa honestly when people just don't tag birdsite content or post negative stuff straight plucked from Twitter, I just don't wanna deal with it, get off of my timeline
I really like the suggestion I saw a while back about auto-tagging a toot if it has certain words, I wish there'd be more interest in that coming to mastodon as a whole, so people can curate their experience on the receiving end
@Louisa Yeah (THE DRAMA IS HAPPENING THERE) oh.… sorry, didn't mean to (THEY'RE CANCELING EACH OTHER) …do that 😫
@Louisa My recommendation is: continue to post things like that, to raise the awareness.
Me such as, I stopped using crossposter, to leave things where they were written.
Right now I believe it’s better that way.
@Louisa I had an account there for a day or 2. There was so much lumpy "chocolate milk", aka "Hershey Squirts", that I gave up on it.
@Louisa It's true.
I tell them what's happening on Mastodon, then it's a teachable moment.
@Louisa ... although sometimes it teaches them not to talk to me.
@ddr kinda looks like you only check in on Mastodon every few months anyway
@Louisa Indeed. I wasn't on Twitter much before, and I'm not on Mastodon much now.
The mood comes and goes. I may have recommended Mastodon more often than I have used it at this point. 😅
@ddr yeah great
@Louisa Just left it today! lol
@Louisa I literally just spent like 15 minutes trying to figure out this one thread on there someone linked, so confusing lol
The social network of the future: No ads, no corporate surveillance, ethical design, and decentralization! Own your data with Mastodon!
