Please let this sink in. Not everything is doom and gloom, we are also progressing in some truly significant ways. There is still #hope, if we keep working for it!
guys, when explaining the #fediverse to new people, just go with the simplest analogy, e-mail. worry about the specifics later. no i don't care if it's not completely accurate, you can make it more "correct" after the fact. you just need to put very basic understanding into new people's heads, you don't need to go
"oh well activitypub is a yoingus sploingus babingyi"
no just say something like
"say you were on outlook, and i was on gmail. we could still send each other emails right? imagine that, but with tweets instead of emails"
i've used this explanation dozens of times, and people always get it.
@email@example.com The people of Ukraine are fighting to reaffirm basic ideas: That they are the master of their future–and not some foreign leader.
That it is the international law that counts and not the right of might. And that Putin must pay a high price for his aggression.

Let's talk a little about the hot subject of the week: #Twitter.
It's obvious why Elon Musk wants to buy it -- he's a raging attention vampire who wants to install himself as Twitter's permanent Main Character.
But it takes two to tango. You can't buy a company unless the people who own it are willing to sell it to you.
So why are Twitter's current owners willing to sell? Let's pop the hood on the company's financials and try to find out. (🧵)
WOW. Yeah I've been on mastadon for like only five days now but I'm already flabbergasted at the world that should have been... https://www.w3.org/TR/activitypub/#Overview
Like literally how did we all agree to just NOT have interoperable social networks??? Looking at the activity pub docs makes it clear how ridiculously easy that would have been. You want my content? Just GET my outbox. Want to send me something? Just POST to my inbox. The server can be anything you want, just format your messages in this (VERY INTUITIVE!) way. It's so simple it's STUPID.
I'm very new to all of this, so I'll admit that there's a lot I don't know, but what is painfully obvious right now is how, yet again, the tendrils of Capitalism have fundamentally altered the STRUCTURE of the Internet to make it less open, less empowering and generally WORSE for most users. However, what's also becoming clear is that it does not have to be that way, and being here is in some small way, bringing about that better possible future.
For new people wondering why Mastodon is on thousands of servers instead of one:
-It helps protect us all against Elon Musk scenarios. It's very difficult for anyone to buy a network made of thousands of independently owned servers. (It's the same reason why no one owns the world's email network, because there are so many independent providers out there.)
-If your server misbehaves (or sells out to a malevolent billionaire), you can move your account to a different server, or even to a brand new server. Decentralisation means you're never trapped on a site you hate.
...and there are lots more good reasons too, to do with servers using alternative Fediverse software etc, but I'll save that for a future post 😁
Once again Russia shows its unreliability as a gas supplier.
The unilaterally stopping delivery of gas to customers in Europe is unjustified and unacceptable.
We are prepared for this scenario.

If you want, you can move your Mastodon account from one instance (server) to another.
Moving lets you take your followers, follows and some settings with you.
1. Create a new account on the instance you want to move to, but DO NOT delete the old account.
2. Log into your NEW account, go to Edit Profile > Moving From A Different Account, click on "create an account alias" and follow the instructions.
3. Log into your OLD account, go to Edit Profile > Move To A Different Account, click on "configure it here" and follow the instructions.
4. On your OLD account, go to Preferences > Import And Export > Data Export and download the settings and follows lists.
5. On your NEW account, go to Preferences > Import And Export > Import and upload the lists you just downloaded in the previous step.
After doing all these, your old account will redirect to the new one, and your followers will transfer automatically (with a short delay).
