According to Google Maps the statue of Edward Colston is out in the middle of the Floating Harbour. Anyone who's seen the video of the relocation effort knows that can't be true.

Yet again it seems that the collectively owned and edited @openstreetmap is much more accurate.

Loving that suggests relevant stickers when you choose a smiley. :blobhyperthink:

Just look at this! Why can't we have this? Except those servants, ofc, that's some fucked up bullshit. But the rest. And the design of that pamphlet! Just look at that shit!

Is this a bug, or are you supposed to be able to lock your account in such a way that everyone can still see your toots, they just need to be accepted before they can follow you?

In my mind the padlock indicates that you don't want people who don't follow you to see your toots. "You can see what I post, but not follow me" doesn't make much sense to me?
