The week before Thanksgiving Twitter fires 4K workers, Amazon fires 10K workers, Facebook fires 11K workers, and Disney plans thousands of layoffs—all while US Billionaire pandemic wealth increased an absurd $1.7T.😳
A reminder that billionaires don’t create jobs—they exploit workers.
Tax billionaires. Unionize workers.
I can't help but notice many toots from helpful newbies encouraging you to support the Mastodon Patreon.
It's fine to do that but understand it goes to just two big instances and the official Mastodon dev team.
It does NOT trickle down to YOUR instance. If you want to support your server, donate to it directly. Nearly all the costs of the explosive growth of the past few weeks is borne by local instances.
Mastodon is decentralized. There is no Mastodon Inc. This is not Twitter.
“ The Photo Studio That Immortalized Argentina’s Popular Culture
During an era of political upheaval, a portrait session at Foto Estudio Luisita, run by sisters Luisa and Chela Escarria, was a rite of passage for actors, dancers, pioneering trans performers—and the occasional adorned dog”

if there is anything you simply do not want to see, like, for example, tweets about people you never ever want to hear about again, or if you don't want to get spoilered on that TV show you like but you haven't had time to catch up, or anything like that, here's a guide on how to filter your content so you simply will not see it!
When #ElizabethHolmes was sentenced this week, millions of Americans learned that moms go to #prison in the US. Years ago, my little sister gave birth while incarcerated and because they kept transferring her, I couldn't find/reach her before she was forced to adopt her baby out to a wealthy white couple in Bellevue. America is an irrevocably cruel place built on exploitation. Welcome 🥴

@stevie You definitely don’t need to move instances to find people. I think *probably* what those people mean is checking out the local timeline of an instance you’re interested in? That’s a good way to turn up interesting people, although a lot of instances turn it off. You can check /public/local from the web (you can get there in many apps, but it’s awkward).
As mentioned by someone else, you can view followers on other instances via web profiles.
Every billionaire is a policy failure.
Cars and the space they occupy in motion and at rest are antethetical to vibrant communities. In North America, we have spend 80 years exploiting our surplus of land to develop in a profoundly anti-human way. The only way forward from here is through increased density and human-scale development. #urbanism #cityplanning #bancars #openstreets
(2/2) I get that this place is different from twitter but I can’t help but be my normal goofy self so follow me if you’re into weird shit and bad movie takes and pictures of #cats and steezy bike outfits.
I’m a #bikecommuter and #bikepunk so i’m less interested in #cycling content and more interested in your fucked up vintage roadie conversion or big tire bike or rivendell rip-off or #bikepolo setup. Currently learning to weld so i can build #tallbikes.
I guess that’s good for now.
Now that I know more about how mastodon works I’m going to do a real #introduction post.
I’m stevie. I’m a #queer #transit #organizer living in #Columbus #Ohio. I hope to find and learn from other #leftists and folks interested in #urbanism #mutualaid #climate #environmentaljustice #affordablehousing #sustainability #abolition #antiracism #landuse and adjacent spaces.
