twitter leftists: branding and marketing is used to manipulate our perceptions against our self interest
also twitter leftists: wont use mastodon because the word "toot" is silly
@clarjon1 silly is good.
@clarjon1 brb putting the entire text of das kapital in one post
@dankwraith i simply avoid acknowledging the word and use "post" instead
@dankwraith Look, I'm all for the revolution, but if I see a silly word I'm out! 😤
@dankwraith toot is an exceptionally bad term but gargron is incapable of admitting he's wrong ever.
Also, if you don't like the name: run your (presumed anti-tooter) own instance and call it what you want! Or use any other software to get on fedi. It's really fine.
broke: using birdsite and whining about it
woke: using a decentralized free social network
me, an intellectual: using a free social network and paying for it as praxis 💦
@dankwraith kinda hating how someone can say that the biggest social media networks are run by nazi sympathizers and it's not hyperbole at all, everything is fine
Once I got slapped with the penalty Over Yonder for telling a card-carrying WS that he was a fool (no cussing, even), my heart wasn't in it anymore. My body stayed behind in my locked account for a few months afterward. But then this noble beast here hit "delete" for me because he's the smartest one in the house:
@dankwraith [twjtter leftist clocking in to work for free at the content mines while i ride by on my unicycle wearing a clown nose and eating free pizza]: “what a dumbass”
@dankwraith what i love is that tweet was a “silly” word for a very long time until we started getting news reports “In a tweet today, the President stated...”
They just need some tutoring.
Thanks, you've been wonderful. I'm here all week. Don't forget to tip your waitress.
@dankwraith Twitter leftists: only interested in branding and marketing anyways, just for themselves specifically
@dankwraith see also leftists I know who get really mad when someone doesn’t use iMessage because it has a less readable color
@dankwraith toot was what convinced me to use masto tbh
It was a simpler time
@dankwraith twitter "leftists" are they like american "leftists"?
@dankwraith mocking twitter leftists as radical praxis
Hot take: if you're not willing to fart your opinion online, just blast your ass into everyone's timeline, then you deserve Twitter
@dankwraith No one actually says that.
@dankwraith you laugh, but I personally know "comrades" who told me they would NOT be promoting events outside of Facebook because "how else are we supposed to reach out to people?".
Bonus context: they live in Malta, an island that's 21km long and 13km wide.
@dankwraith you know another words that’s silly? “twitter” “tweets”. it’s called familiarity i think?
@dankwraith oh it’s not tootmaker dankwraith
@softmetals it is now
@dankwraith lmao i’ve been reading it wrong for days maybe weeks
