@CiaraFaith hello there!
so we have accounts on different "instances" - mstdn.io vs mstdn.social, they're independent sites running the same software, otherwise it kinda works like Twitter but with better features.
Hi! mastodon.social is being slow right now, as far as I can tell because there's twice as many people using it at the same time as ever have; I'm working on making it go fast again, but in the meantime, do remember to invite people to joinmastodon.org instead of directly to mastodon.social. People don't have to be on the same server to follow you! Thanks!

Yesterday, 26th of September was Stanislav Petrov Day.
A day to celebrate that you, me, everyone isn't nuclear vapour right now.
SP - disobeyed orders and military protocol, used his own thinking, and by doing so averted nuclear retaliation based on false alarms that would likely have caused a mass nuclear war in 1983.
Stanislav Petrov, often referred to as "The man who saved the world" died in December 2017
