I no longer consider Twitter to be a social network. I see it as a carefully curated feed of corporations and personalities selling things. It doesn't seem to be useful for socializing, rather, it seems outright anti-social.

Mastodon.social is the gulag of .

Join you an instance that doesn't censor.

Presto.

try doing this to an open-source decentralized blockchain

I was trained from an early age in the fine art of computers, and I am still not sure whether they were a good idea.

To be absolutely fair to @CassSunstein (h/t @lightcoin), he prefers a conspiracy of propaganda and brainwashing (Steps (3), (4), (5)), but Step (1) isn't off the table, eh @CassSunstein?
