Am I the only one getting the update warning every couple of minutes on the iOS (public) beta?

Wil Wheaton's done with social media. I'm certain he'll be happier for it.
What the fediverse and twitterverse before it did to him is inexcusable, no matter anyone else's hot take (especially mine). No god-damned wonder he's done.
Let's try and do better. At least in this small corner of the fediverse, I enjoy seeing none of the toxic shit I was subject to on 🐦 (and I wasn't even a target!)
Meta take. Of course its about wilw. Everything is. Show more
Mastodon was supposed to be a place free from harassment. It doesn't matter if you disagree with someone.
This was a targeted harassment attack.
I'm disappointed in the community.
I have been notified by an Admin here that they are getting 60 reports a day about my account. As far as I can tell, I'm not breaking any rules, and I've done my best to be a good person here. But this admin is going to suspend my account.
It's the Admin's instance, so I fully support their choice to eliminate a source of frustration, but something to consider: a person who is doing nothing wrong can be run off one instance by a mob from another instance. That seems ... not cool. 1/x
The Bridge has improved a lot over the months. It allows Twitter users to find their friends on Mastodon.
If you have a Twitter account, consider using it at least once so when your Twitter friends discover Mastodon, they will easily find you here.
If you agree to link your Twitter and Mastodon account, see connecting at least once as a small contribution to the Mastodon community.
If you agree, retoot or post your own version.
Any opinions about the new #nvidia graphics cards? (Price aside)
@brunoph Hi! I just realized that you can’t scrub through video in the Amaroq iPhone app. You can’t grab the scrubber. It tries to switch to the next photo/video (as if I was swiping on a picture).

mastodon privacy Show more
since this is coming up again, i feel it's important to stress the following facts about privacy on mastodon:
- DMs are stored in plaintext in the database
- yes, this means admins can access them
- it also means they will be accessible if your instance DB is leaked
- however: this is the same as the situation on any other mainstream social media site
- at the end of the day you should make sure you trust your admins
- ultimately: don't use mastodon for privacy-critical messages
