@live when she asks for your Twitter and you're like "actually let me tell you about federation"

Instead of bringing in brands, let's bring in more Markov bots.

i just realized
since mastodon doesn't compress things you can just do weird stuff like files in image-format

here's 2048 for the nes (headered)

each color is 3 hex digits

"Will Mastodon make any money?" scream the journalists, who have forgotten the joy of building sandcastles on the beach

thanks to @acw I could make a Turing test-passing bots that just toots 🍍🍍🍍s at people all day

But how can I turn Mastodon into a money-making machine?
*thinks about it*
*opens a webshop that sells pineapples, introductory books on the French language, and incrementally larger server thingamajigs*

Hello there! I published Glitchet 1.20: Atomic Rooms! glitchet.com/issues/1.20

Repurposed nuclear shelters, Twitter without the Nazis, FedEx being weird, microbial ballistics, nukes, and more!

And of course, tons of great glitchy/net-y artwork, and I plugged Mastodon because I really do like it very very much. (goodness, I like to stretch my character-limit legs.)

Mastodon is the Dark Souls of social media

another thing cool about instances: unlike on birdsite, which feels like everyone trying to get everyone else's attention, in an instance, you have a firm sense of reputation and identity among your community. you are someone! anyways, what I'm saying is, buy local toots

remote start for your car has exactly 3 uses:

- warming up/cooling down your car before you get in it
- priming a getaway during a zombie stampede
- making people standing/walking by it jump

using ^((?!@).)*$ as your home timeline regex helps you find interesting conversations

is it true that mastodon is actually a psyop created by hover and namecheap to spur people into paying crazy prices for hip domain names such as "balls.hypno.gongle.sigil", "godzone.fuck" and "will.i.am.shitner"

If nothing else, Mastodon has exposed me directly to every side of various discussions about free speech, censorship, etc., and various ways and viewpoints of arguing about it, which is really interesting.

@way - one where you all work through choose your own adventure stories. Do it with a bot and people can just toot directions.
- one for dog pics only

!

- one where you only speak in code puzzles
- one where you can only post video clips and gifs at each other
- one where nobody is allowed to actually toot, just mysteriously boost
- one for cat toots only
- one for a whole-world collaborative rp
- one for lojban/esperanto speakers only
- one where people complete a novel in the local timeline one word at a time
- one specifically for subtooting the entire fediverse
- one for those weird sun universe birdsite people

@HedgeMage HA! you really pegged that guy for "shy" and he knew it :)

Mastodon: *paints beautiful wall mural*

Twitter: Who's gonna buy that? You can't even transport it?

Mastodon: *does an elaborate interpretive dance in front of the mural*

Twitter: Wait, is that part of the art?

Mastodon: *group meditation chanting "awooo"*

Twitter: Ok but how do you monetize?

Mastodon: *stretch*

Twitter: ...?

Mastodon: *a thousand voices sing a hymn to diversity as a million weirdos dance*

Twitter: We're, uh... we're going home now...

Mastodon: *builds space ship*

People still keep asking me how federation works. So I made two images to show the difference.

Image 1:
"Centralized"
That's how Facebook and Twitter work.
Most things really.
Pretty self-explanatory.

Image 2:
"Federated"
That's Mastodon.
People connect to servers and the servers share data with each other.

E-mail also works like this. It's why you can send mails from Gmail to Hotmail
