Google saves your purchasing history for years, pulling the information from email receipts received in Gmail. In this post, we'll quickly explain how you can delete this information and take back your privacy. 💪👇

@ilyess @CodingItWrong for me it happens with emojis on peoples profiles and it can be very annoying at times.

@ilyess yeah me too! The guy really nailed it from early on.
I’m still very happy with it and plan to still use it :blobcat:

@violet tusky is awesome! I’ve only used it a couple of times but I really liked it. Still sticking with Metatext though since I’m in iOS and I like the trending page it has.
Yes, the feature parity with the web is really good as well and it also spares you installing another app :)

@ilyess Metatext has a great trending page, which is also missing from the pwa. But Metatext is not being actively developed any more which is quite unfortunate :blobpensive:

Man I really wish iOS supported notifications for PWAs because Mastodon’s PWA is so good!

Remember to hug (ask first!) and otherwise appreciate your instance admins today and over then next week or so.

Your instance admins will be putting in additional time and effort due to a washed-down right-wing celebrity's latest vanity project.

They will handle it, the heroes that they are. But they will need hugs and appreciation.

If you can, also throw a coin, that helps of course. But hugs and appreciation, first and foremost.

Today is the first Global Encryption Day!
