Not a full introduction post, but hello, I'm David and I have a sona by the name of Bowie. You can probably guess the type of music that I enjoy :bowie_laugh:

I both love and hate technology and that's too much a part of my life. I also love cute things! Pick one for us to bond over.

If you are a nice person, I want to talk to you! You can mention me, DM me, follow me, share fun things, or otherwise interact because I love all of it and love to interact back. :bowie_heart: :bowie_heart:

masto meta 

ive seen people suggest that the ios app thing means it's time to jump ship and... idk? i don't feel like the ios app itself matters because there were already plenty of apps, some of them good i hear. and gargron has made it clear before that he doesn't like any feature that doesn't look good on an instance the size of m.s (personally that's how i read the timeline thing, not "it's not like twitter wahh")

mastodon software meta :dont_at_me: :boost_ok: 

it’s very clear that gargron is just wanting to make as much money as he can with mastodon and nothing else. the sad reality of things is that we think as people who arrived in 2016/2017 and the people who are adjacent to this community, we’re now insignificant to him because there has been huge user waves to come by since that really outnumber us who are just using it as a platform and going with the flow of gargron’s shitty personal vision without caring much about it. he’s catering to them now because they’re the ones who bring in the money and who bring in new people, that’s all

everything that was good about mastodon’s team was mostly the products of a lot of the early contributors who were burned out by gargron because only his vision ever mattered to him

twitch shill 

knitting and stash management strim !

it's called the fediverse because everyone here is an agent of the United States government

very angry all caps fediverse meta mastodon app bullshit rant 

tech-only people fucking suck. β€˜got mine’ people fucking suck.

ok look, the official app doesn't even honor the category system built into masto for emoji, making it hard to sort for them

screenshotting us still on a suggested instance sign-up screen before we go away for me saying this :bowie_laugh:

@cdmnky "the signal to noise ratio" is so low because you're a fucking failure at building community, Gargron. it's fine out here

this is gargron's response to my criticism for intentionally removing local and federated timelines from the mobile app

he used the mastodon account to hide behind and delete @avie 's comment and close all further discussion on it


Ce soir, je continue The Vanishing of Ethan Carter en stream :shiro_smile:

I find it strange that I love dark mode on my phone and iPad but absolutely cannot use it on a Mac.
