So, has anyone in #linguistics started work on an oral history of people saying birdsite/birdworld on here or were you all waiting for an internet linguist to take up residence?
Please @ me with your theories/stories!
@gretchenmcc I remember @Gargron saying 'bird site' a lot early on, but I'm not sure if that came from quitter or other gnusocial before mastodon
@bob @KevinMarks @gretchenmcc @gargron ISTR birdsite was used nearly 10 years ago, back in the identi.ca days. I know for sure that "t-word" was used.
@bob @gargron @gretchenmcc @KevinMarks definitely could be wrong, and my memory definitely could be wrong
my memory: notoriously not good
Octodon is a nice general purpose instance. more
