Every time I show someone something on my phone I get a popup notification like "piss wizard liked your toot: 'i'm a gay little rat'"

I know there's a do not disturb mode but I like to live out loud

@prehensile my phone wasn't connecting to the wifi at my new job so the IT guy came up just after lunch (when I'd been messaging someone on telegram) and had my phone for a solid five minutes as he played with the settings. I think I literally started sweating, and as soon as he gave it back I turned off message preview in notifications

@prumm haha

i assume IT guys know even more freaky/private stuff about people than like, therapists

@prehensile yeah that's intentional. A bit like how Anne Lister would casually mention lewd gay books to find lesbians in the 19th century.
