@eviloatmeal Sites that don't generate RSS feeds will often post updates on Twitter. Nitter thusly provides a handy RSS feed for that website.
Twitter might once have been a buzzing place for conversation, but most people I know have drifted off it, leaving it as a glorified RSS-style platform. That just be my experience though.
@rumblestiltskin I think you're spot on.
I kinda see yelling on social media is the 'I demand to speak to the manager' approach. lol

Instagram is a very 'style over substance' type of platform so I can imagine why it's not of interest to many Masto people.
TBH, most men my age on it are probably either bodybuilders or just there to creep on women, so maybe no great loss, lol.
@malin Hooray! Nice one!
@EmeraldArcher I'm sure Mailfence is really good too, but here's what made me opt for Posteo.
- They use existing open source software, rather than building their own, they contribution to patches that everyone can make use of - as FOSS is meant to be.
- They have great workers rights policies.
- Great environmental policies.
- They're run a steady, sustainable business rather than a 'growth at all costs' model.
- They take cash.
- They host lectures on privacy on their campus.
@tagomago Artists and public figures for the most part have probably been lured in by the same con, or feel powerless to resist it.
@tagomago Facebook are pretty good at the whole behavioural manipulation thing.
People fundamentally follow the crowd and open platforms don't really lay down the marketing cash that Facebook and co do.
Well, looks like Instagram is further closing in their ecosystem. This has been giving Bibliogram trouble.
I had a quick look at Timelie. A cute time-manipulation stealth puzzle game. And oh no a video.
@jaz @gomez I took the plunge and deleteed my FB a few years back. It was mostly for security reasons, people kept trying - and sometimes succeeded - to use it to contact people I knew, steal money, generally abuse my personal info.
It took an adjustment period, but honestly, I never looked back.
It does a good job of fostering FOMO and looking like the place 'where everyone is', but I think that's illusionary to a point. Unfortunately, it's a powerful illusion.
@EmeraldArcher Posteo.de is what I use. Fully open source and a really good service.
