New here? Remember that Twitter is optimized to make you into passive consumers, by en(r/g)aging you with content that you don't choose yourself.

Here, that doesn't happen. But it also means you're responsible to find people to follow.

It will take some work.

If you're willing to put that in, you'll find a wide variety of friendly people that will be happy to have meaningful conversions and laugh and cry together with you.

Start by searching and looking at who other people follow.

@leah Hallo, Leah! I’m currently trying to learn Deutsch and I believe that chaos social would be great for me to practice it. How do I get an invite? Vielen Dank!!

WireGuard removed from Google Play Store due to donation link lists.zx2c4.com/pipermail/wire

And apparently, andOTP has also been removed by Google recently due to a donation link. github.com/andOTP/andOTP/issue

It's just a page that says you can click this link to support the developers, there is no in-app payment. yet the Google overlord banned them from Play.

This is just pure evil.

Confirmed: Windows 10 is DRM digital RENTAL media. You will NEVER own your PC again.

Switch to LINUX such as Ubuntu and Linux Mint operating systems. There are no tasks not to be accomplished with Linux of modern that you did via Microsoft Windows!

Windows 10 setup now prevents local account creation; in practice it forces the user to sign in with a Microsoft account.

"i use linux as my operating system," i state proudly to the unkempt, bearded man. he swivels around in his desk chair with a devilish gleam in his eyes, ready to mansplain with extreme precision.
"actually," he says with a grin, "linux is just the kernel. you use GNU+linux."
i don't miss a beat and reply with a smirk, "i use alpine, a distro that doesn't include the GNU coreutils, or any other GNU code. it's linux, but it's not GNU+linux."

the smile quickly drops from the man's face. his body begins convulsing and he foams at the mouth as he drop to the floor with a sickly thud. as he writhes around he screams "I-IT WAS COMPILED WITH GCC! THAT MEANS IT'S STILL GNU!"
coolly, i reply "if windows was compiled with gcc, would that make it GNU?" i interrupt his response with "and work is being made on the kernel to make it more compiler-agnostic. even if you were correct, you won't be for long."

with a sickly wheeze, the last of the man's life is ejected from his body. he lies on the floor, cold and limp. i've womansplained him to death.

"The reason why so many grown ass men hate Greta Thunberg is because she represents everything they hate listening to; women, children, people with disabilities, science, and just people who are smarter than them in general"

(the author of this was harassed off twitter so let this stand here)

@frumble Yeah, nothing new. You still can do on terminal:

sudo spctl --master-disable

Reader mode is like 1995 with better fonts and background colors. You wait half a minute for the page to load, then you can finally read the thing.

However you do have to put up with a brief episode of 1999 while the page loads: ads everywhere, garish animations, clashing colours, etc.

While this is happening, 201x is still in effect with 3rd party tracking.

If you're really lucky, someone will have embedded an Adobe- or ActiveX-something and you get the full brunt of all 3 decades at once.

For a second there, there was a picture of "FOR ALL MANKIND" in big letters and I thought Tim would make me eat my own words, but it is just a series (which probably isn't available in Brazil, as usual).
