What if people stopped charging for public data and made data services free.

Put up a script on checking up instagrammers data. Put it up for free... I hope it benefits all who are being overcharged by their agencies for public data.

Pro tip: If you're in a restaurant or a coffee shop or any other place with a menu of products or services, you're more likely to get what you want if you use words that appear on the menu instead of trying to make stuff up (for example, if the sizes are called 8, 12, 16, and 20 ounce, asking for the "medium" is asking for trouble).

If you're not sure about something, it's always fine to ask questions to get you to a confident order for the thing you want.

Went to a weirdly fun place today. It was an open karaoke bar with people dancing but also with darts and also with arcade machines and pool tables and then there are also private karaoke rooms. It’s like 5 different bar concepts into one.

This instance can be a harbor for people if they're looking to leave other instances. Everyone's welcome as long as you follow the code of conduct, but I'd prefer to invite you personally rather than having open registration. This goes for friends of mine, friends of people who are here, or people we're federating with!

If you want to join, (it would be a good idea for you to know how I operate since I'd be your admin) all you need to do is shoot me a DM and I'll get you set up! :lazerpizza:

Does anyone use a service like hootsuite to post to your Mastodon account?

If God imparted to you his infinite wisdom you won’t have any friends left. Think about it using your limited wisdom and be careful what you wish for

Before today, I knew: the reason Twitter was originally limited to 140 characters was so it could be transmitted over SMS (which was limited to 1120 bits, or 160 7-bit characters).

TIL: the reason SMS is limited to 160 7-bit characters is because Friedhelm Hillebrand, who was the chairman of the non-voice services committee within the Global System for Mobile Communications (GSM), found that a) the average sentence was <160 characters, and b) that matched the average postcard.

Should I make this game harder?

How does anyone follow conversations on telegram?

We need a button on sharethis for Mastodon

In case you haven't noticed, I boost a lot. It's great to get people's work around so we can all be friends and follow each other's journeys! If you like a post, consider giving it a boost. :)

But if you're tired of seeing so many boosts from an individual, there is the option to turn off boosts from certain people you follow. That way you can still follow them. Just look for the dots for options under a user's profile.

I'm officially on Mastodon more than Twitter. It's happening.

Some twitter v. Mastodon tips for all of the lovely new tooters:

When you like a tweet on twitter, a swarm of AIs spin into action, analysing every aspect of the tweet and trying so desperately to find the matching tweet to show you next that will keep you scrolling, lest their masters decommission them in favor of a new version.

When you fave a toot on Mastodon, there aren't any AIs; you just made another human being across the world feel nice.
