Dear #black / #brown / allied photographers:

Got nice, sfw photos of black / brown people having fun, playing, celebrating, being in love, and so on?

Consider donating them to @blackjoy to help grow its feed. Normalize black joy. Send a DM with the file/link, photo credit and description.

Boosts appreciated!


Still trying to get used to this and trying to rebuild my Twitter network and of course make some new friends. Any #TEL #EdTech #PhD in #Education #HigherEducation #HE #LearningTechnology peers out there?

"To help some of the newcomers make connections: name 5-7 things that interest you but aren't in your profile, as tags so they are searchable. Then boost this post or repeat its instructions so others know to do the same."

That's not procrastination, that's useful community building. A great list. Thank you!

You can tell you are in the company of mathematicians when someone asks "Which is the nearest planet to the Earth?", someone else says "The Earth", and everyone else just nods.

I'm seeing people on twitter saying admins can read all your DMs on mastodon.
This isn't true, we only see a DM if a person in the DM group that's allowed to see it reports it.
Then, like any report, it shows up in the moderation panel, just like it would for twitter moderators.
Otherwise, it won't show up, as shown here.

BUT. No, DMs aren't a fully private end to end encrypted system, don't consider it as such.
But no it's not just an open thing for all to see on your admin team either.

I'd really like to connect with (among other folks, of course):
- Secondary maths teachers
- Museum/ heritage sector folk

👋 #New Users of Fedi,

Although I would love to say hello to everyone of you, that simply can not be done! So, welcome!

Fedi is an amazing plance where you can find social circles of all types and of all genres!

There is no pressure to have any number of followers or to be verified. Just make friends! It's as simple as seeing someone to talk to and replying to their post! On the Fediverse, there is no such thing as verification, and is a common "joke" emoji on many instances

I would like to say- Give a follow (and a donation, if you can!) to! They do a lot for the Fediverse, including ensuring it is a safe, fun, and inclusive place for all, providing several services, most importantly,,,, and more!

I would just like to end by saying hello, and wishing you good luck along your fediverse journey!

Research shows that 6 out of 7 dwarves are not Happy, and over 14% of them are actually Grumpy.

I see an #introduction is in order...
I'm Tom! Part-time maths teacher, part-time museum learning consultant, part-time MA student.

On that note... if you're a teacher who is taking students on a maths trip (e.g. to a museum) over the next term I REALLY want to talk to you about a research project I'm doing.

Hello world - happy to meet you! I'm just starting to find my way around Mastodon.
