It's too bad that Pogs can't make a come-back.
They're *so* easy to manufacture.
Think of all the small, independent, creators out there nowadays that could jump on that bandwagon!
"That's adorable that you were trying to craft an original experience, but what we just take one of our existing games and add some storm troopers or something?"
A lot of people don't realize that Blue-Checkmark people have a different Twitter experience than the rest of us.
They can set it so they don't even *see* notifications/replies from people who don't have the blue checkmark.

Let's be realistic. It won't even be a blip on their stats.
It will be lost in the noise of day-to-day variation.
It's like when the religious right get upset about something and post to social media "If every Christian boycotts [company] we'll show them we matter!!!1".
Don't you roll you eyes at those wingnuts? At how by shaking their fist impotently at a giant, they've proved their own desperation more than anything else?
How is this different?
Idea : Someone should make a twitter bot that searches for people who say "Twitter is garbage" and lets them know about Mastodon.
Here is an official NASA photograph of an astronomer.
I didn't think that's how astronomy works, but what do I know?
An Apple a day keeps the doctor away, but doctors don't make house calls anymore, so you can basically eat whatever you want.
Friends, I used to be an internet utopian.
I was so very very wrong.
I'm a virtual reality and game programmer, who's excited about games, technology, online comics. Currently I work on creating interactive haptic systems.
Octodon is a nice general purpose instance.
