Twitter finally unbanned me this morning.
But they didn't admit wrongdoing or say it won't happen again.

Let's keep Mastodon alive and growing as the primary social media network, and use Twitter only as a fallback to interface with normies? ;)

Hello friends, I thought I'd share how my first year of proper vegetable gardening went - so much better than I even expected!

It was a lot less work than I thought it would be, thanks to the no-dig method, and literally ever veggie I ate was so much prettier and tastier than any store bought one.

If you have the space and a bit of money to get started (mostly just buying compost) you can definitely do this! Its not as hard as one might think. Here to answer any questions!

Regardless of where you instantiate it: in the government, in large tech monopolies, wherever--

Regardless of what you call it: "content moderation," "neutral third-party fact-checkers," whatever--

Regardless of your intention, once you create a Ministry of Truth, it will be used to spread lies.

I'm starting to get the point behind (some) NFTs.

They can be used as a form of access control to exclusive communities and/or events.

You buy in, in order to get access to something else, and the JPEG is just what it happens to look like.

Yes, someone else can download and use the JPEG, but they don't get the exclusive access that ownership of the NFT gives you.

This is why I don't understand some people who continue to insist why there's no need for decentralized money.

You can become de-banked for saying the wrong word while performing a legal transaction.

The US embargo of Cuba is so psychotically repressive that @Venmo will literally investigate any transaction that mentions the word "Cuba". My friend just sent this to me:

In the basement doing weights and because I'm a 90s kid I listen to Korn to get pumped.

3yo walks in. "Hey dad, cool music!"

Too cute. God I love this kid so much.

The history of human intellectual debate is arguing over what is true and false. That's what free debate is for: a core enlightenment value. These billionaires are so hubristic they think those debates should be replaced by Truth Commissions they own. That's what this is about.
