I'm trying to gauge how much of the iOS / Swift community moved to Mastodon. I crosspost everything there (@twostraws) but:
- If you're reading this on Twitter could you please hit Like on this
- If you're reading on Mastodon press Favorite there
Thank you! 🙇♂️
I am definitely a #fan of #Peanuts. A #CharlieBrown #Christmas can be watched on #AppleTVPlus for free from December 22 thru 25. But if a Apple TV Plus subscriber, you can watch it anytime. Relaxing and letting the #classic Charlie Brown start my Christmas season! https://tv.apple.com/us/movie/a-charlie-brown-christmas/umc.cmc.mbxalimrwrtq72wj4h601pyf
Really struggled with this one. Was completely on the wrong track.

And just to add on to this: I think what's happening at Twitter is such an eye opening thing. To see how fragile and kind of bankrupt things have been, and then to look at something like this and realize it actually doesn't have to be that way. If you've ever left a job that makes you miserable and found one you love, that's the feeling of Mastodon to me. Like, "oh wait I didn't have to feel bad for no reason." It's a breakthrough for me about how to think about the next version of the internet.
Just read a story about all the new social networks popping up/off right now and decided to look at Hive. The stark contrast between what they're doing and Mastodon is really something. Hive feels like a cheap knock-off of every network you already hate. Bad content suggestions, no interesting discourse, tons of people posting for clout... and just a terrible vibe. No thanks.
50 WAYS TO LEAVE YOUR TWITTER
You just pin your last tweet, Pete,
Request your archive, Clive,
You don’t need a blue tick, Vic,
Just get yourself free.
Hop on the tusk, Gus,
You don’t need to delete much,
Except your DMs, Jen,
And get yourself free.
Use Debirdify, Di,
Provide some alt tags, Mags,
Add a content warning, Tim,
To post sensitively.
As its losses pile up, Amazon's Alexa division has fallen out of favor at the company and will bear the brunt of its latest wave of layoffs, according to a new report.

This made me laugh. Here is the description of the "Count" action, in the Shortcuts app on Mac and iOS.
Counts the number of items, characters, words, sentences, or lines passed as input.
This is just like the Count in Sesame Street, but instead of a vampire, it's a Shortcuts action.
I’m #thankful for all of the volunteers running all of the #Mastodon instances out there who are trying to build safe, positive, productive communities. Who willingly give of their own time in addition to their family, work, and other obligations. Who put people before profit. Who believe that when we build bridges and connect with one another, we can accomplish anything together.
