Translation stopped working on the bird app :( But it works on Mastadon :) . #twittermigration #mastadon #birdapp
My entirely anecdotal vibe explanations of Mastodon, BlueSky, and the Bird App:
*Disclaimer: I'm using all 3 for the time being but tailoring my content to each. This isn't sustainable long-term.

Israel accuses Elon Musk of stoking antisemitism on Twitter after anti-Soros remark https://www.timesofisrael.com/israel-accuses-elon-musk-of-stoking-antisemitism-on-twitter-after-soros-remark/ #ApartheidClyde #BirdApp #politics
Not end-to-end, opt-in, paid feature that doesn't prevent MITM, doesn't do PFS, and doesn't support groups, photos, or video.
For all the problems with the bird app and all my chagrin to those who contribute to the cesspit that is its community, its users still deserve better privacy and security when they use it. Everyone, including Twitter, benefits from such things being implemented well.

Some reports on this are suggesting #TuckerCarlson *is* vacating his #FoxNews salary in order to break the non-compete (suggesting it might be broader than the other reports believed), which if true means he likely has some kind of financial arrangement with #Twitter (X Corp).
Which really just reinforces my point above: anyone still participating in #BirdApp is allowing themselves to be a part of an explicitly fascist propaganda machine #BirdSite #Hellsite
#TuckerCarlson’s new show is apparently going to be on #Twitter (at least in part, possibly even mostly, because he’d forfeit the rest of his #FoxNews salary if he appeared on another TV channel). So he, for one, recognises #ElonMusk’s version of Twitter as a facsimile for Fox News.
Those folks still sticking around on #BirdApp really need to consider if being a part of that is a good idea, regardless of the reason #BirdSite #Hellsite

How Elon Musk Turned the Blue Check Mark Into a Scarlet Letter
Making the product worse, asking you to pay for it, berating you for not paying for it, giving it back to you for free. https://slate.com/technology/2023/04/elon-musk-twitter-blue-check-marks-verification-lebron-james.html #politics #BirdApp
Bye, bye #BirdApp my account is now gone.
"The Canadian Press emailed Twitter asking for an explanation of the added tag, and the company responded with a poop emoji."
This is completely unbecoming of a platform so influential. #Twitter #BirdApp
if you are looking for #elonmusk takes, #rightwing #content, #incel bs, bought #bluechecks, cheap fake produced videos of mishaps designed for #virality (hello no human context!) and so much of the like more, search no longer, go to #birdsite, click the #algorithm picked content from the #foryou tab. humongous loads of stomach cramps

Hey, is there a list somewhere of progressive, thoughtful, or insightful journalists and commentators who are still on the #BirdApp but not here?
I'd like to encourage them to be strong and come bloom with us.
The main reason I'm drifting back to using #Twitter over #Mastodon isn't due to a lack of interesting people to follow here, or falling short of some critical mass, it's #TheAlgorithm. It is better.
I don't want to see the same person who just posted 4 different things all at the top of my feed, followed by someone who boosted a bunch of stuff in a row. I don't want to miss things just because I'm not online at the time they were posted.
The bird app is doing me a great concern and I read an article that suggested that things are going to get much crappier on there before they get better. #birdapp
Melon Husk's basic #birdapp sued again for #failure to pay over a million in back #rent since #socialmedia site acquisition. No word on if landlord will accept #dogecoin
Elon either can’t figure out how to remove blue checks, or he chickened out, so he’s instead trying to make it look like everyone is paying for Twitter Blue even when they’re not. Dude really can’t take two steps without tripping and falling down the world’s longest staircase. #birdapp
They're kidding right? This has to be a joke.
Do I reopen my #birdapp account? Because there’s a long list of blocked/muted accounts that I need to gloat on.
To all the folks seeking refuge from the #birdapp or bring news from #twitter:
Have you ever considered we are here because we *never* ever liked twitter? Do you ever spare a second's thought that you were the victim, the addict, the hostage, and the stockholmian participant in someone we *never* ever engaged with or enjoyed?
Will we be seeing another mass migration in the next few weeks? #birdapp #twitter #twittermigration
@AbbyFla Every once in a while I’m reminded of certain people on the #BirdApp whose every post I enjoyed but no longer see. Very sad that none of us will read any more Aunt Crabby’s tweets.
Guess I'll start with an #introduction toot.
Came here from the #BirdApp. Have had enough of the changes made to that platform. I don't give a damn about the number of likes, or impressions I receive. I'm tired of adverts interwoven in the stream of posts. Most of all - I'm sick of the #ChiefTwitt doing monkey business.
Enough of all this rage. I'm here to start anew and I intend to make a positive contribution to #Universeodon... Hell, to the whole #Fediverse! Hope an occasional rant won't put you off interacting with me.
#Geek at heart:
Does the above qualify as tag-spamming? :D
@mmasnick I do #Lego #dinosaurs stuff and best i got on #Birdapp was around 100. Now I'm passing 600.
Everyone here is so nice I love it.
Im honestly looking at dumping all socials for this place because of how less stressed I get here
If for some unfathomable reason you are reading this and you are still on #twitter and therefore supporting #fascism ...
... the least you can do is tell people on the #birdapp that March 9 is #JoinMastodonDay.
Finally deleted the #birdapp. #byefelicia 👋
Update : Elon Musk has apologized after publicly scoffing at a Twitter employee's uncertainty about whether he had been laid off in a recent round of cuts and speaking dismissively of the employee's disability in a series of tweets Monday night.
"I would like to apologize to Halli for my misunderstanding of his situation. It was based on things I was told that were untrue or, in some cases, true, but not meaningful," Musk tweeted Tuesday. "He is considering remaining at Twitter."
Translation : "I would like to apologize to Halli for my not knowing that if I followed through on this, I would have to pay him $100 million, and I am so ungodly desperate for every last cent right now."
Elon Musk publicly mocks Twitter worker with disability who is unsure whether he's been laid off
Elon Musk publicly scoffed at a Twitter employee's uncertainty about whether he had been laid off in a recent round of cuts and spoke dismissively of the employee's disability in a series of tweets Monday night.
Here's the series of all tweets related to this all in one uploaded to Imgur - https://imgur.com/gallery/PFc3k0d
I would've uploaded it here itself but I'm too lazy to upload em one by one as mastodon android UI is still not super user friendly
Wie hat das Tool geheissen, dass Twitter Handles (denen dort gefolgt wird) abfragt wo / ob sie im fediverse vorhanden sind? #help #fediverse #birdapp
Because ... of course it doesnt.
#BirdApp is a circus clown show.
@caseynewton @zoeschiffer I'm pretty sure that slamming everyone's #birdapp timeline with Elon's #Musk is not the surefire winner he thinks it is.
That said, it's worked a tweet for me - I can't see a single tweet at all. From anyone.
Appears I’m unable to post anything whatsoever on #BirdApp … lmao what …
How can I be over my limit when I have not posted in weeks?
Anyone else? I bet it’s everyone isn’t it? LOL. This is hilarious.
i think melon husk broke somethin again
Meanwhile, on #Twitter... They're trying to charge businesses $1k a month for their little "verified" checkmark now.
That won't tell you anything about who's a legit business, only who makes more than $1k a month from Twitter. My publisher Fractured Mirror, for example... no way they can be verified now.
Having people pay for clout is so ridiculously classist I have no more words.

@andybaio it worked! And I love the #Windows95 interface😻
Hey what are your favorite #bot or #bots you've discovered here in the fedi?
One thing I miss about the #BirdApp is all the amazing art that would show up, and the network of art bots that would clue people into other art bots.
Anyway, @gaycats may or may not be considered art, but it posts some gay goddamn cats on the regular !
This is my re #introduction after moving to this server. My name is Josh Hill, and I’m a PhD in #criminaljustice. I focus mostly on quantitative #methods which means I’ve spend a lot of time outside my regular field, and lately have been doing mostly #marinescience. I’m also interested in all things #jewish, including #yiddish, and am becoming increasingly observant.
I finally deleted the #birdapp, so plan on spending more time over here and I look forward to an increasingly active community!
Can they… not?!

@chemoelectric No, not against you personally. Just against this statement. I’m a journalist who has been on Twitter for over a decade. But I am, like many, testing out alternatives (this is Day 4 for me on Mastodon!) before completing a full #twittermigration. I know in many newsrooms, there’s talk about what happens next and where social media investments should be going. But please know we are working on it in re and can’t leave readers behind on the #birdapp just yet!
People who left #twitter more than a week ago: do you miss it?

It’s Day 2 for me on #Mastadon as I test out ways to take part in the great #twittermigration.
One thing I can say with absolute certainty: It’s a breath of fresh air to find a community that understands the value of strong journalism and supports the #journalists that are trying to do that work. Thank you.
If you’re looking for stories on America’s housing and homelessness crisis, give me a follow. Reach out anytime.
What a joke. #birdapp #SpaceKaren
