i would fucking hate it if, like, a big rock came alive and tried to fight me

I heard gab fascists have found a way on here, ugh

@A_bern I don't know, but my guesses include things like: established connections people already have with communities on twitter, twitter's 2nd-hand benefit of providing a trickle of news and politics, or twitter's emotionally manipulative tactics to keep people engaging with their shitty website.

Whatever the reasons, I hope people can someday overcome them and flush twitter into the sewer.

what keeps us from moving off twitter en masse, anyhow

throwing out a simple hecc twitter,

keeps banning good people and protecting all the fascists

@A_bern If you are a writer or artist, for real: mailing list. You need to get a PO box (because you have to provide a mailing address), but then you OWN those contacts. And it's explicitly a list of people interested in your stuff.

If not, here and Discord are good alternatives. But yeah, get emails of friends!!
