@objectinspace I use bitlbee-mastodon and Amoroq on IOS. Not sure what exists for Android.

Yeah may need to find a better way of doing this. Closing out of Bitlbee to have my home timeline work, and having to recreate the local timeline every time is really annoying.

Yep. If I close out of the local channel, I have to delete the channel and remake the local channel to get it to stream again.

Weird that I have to redo my mastodon-bitlbee setup for my local timeline. No wonder Mastodon seemed so quiet.

On a Wednesday afternoon in July 2010, I received a yellow lab named Gavin. Now, eight years later, it’s time for him to retire. Gavin was my first dog from guiding eyes. He helped me through college, the CCB, and my first convention when I got my job. I’m going to miss him.

Grabbed the deal they had for nordvpn from ... I guess it's TWIT. $99 for 3 years. Well, ya can't beat that. Not when the original price for that is $430.

Hey their we go. Got bitlbee-mastodon up and running. Now we're good to go.

One thing I gotta remember is to bring up tootstream after the twitter client. Just so used to only having twitter. Hahaha.

Just to make sure I have this correct, home timeline is just who I follow, local is the entire technology instance and fed is ... everything? Is that right? I'm using this as my mastodon client for the time being unless their's an accessible GUI client that works with screenreaders. github.com/magicalraccoon/toot

So here we go. First post to mastodon. Let’s see if this social network last.
I see some say it won’t, some say it will. I guess only time will tell. For now, I am definitely enjoying it. Take some getting used to, but not difficult. Also it’s still definitely in its infancy. So let’s see where things go.
