He will still join them before the next state elections.

RT: - Rajinikanth slammed the BJP over the Thiruvalluvar row in Tamil Nadu.

I don't think a Shiv Sena - NCP government is going to be any better than a BJP - Shiv Sena combine. None of these parties seem to care about governance, nor what the people of Maharashtra want. All they seem to care about is who gets to play musical chair with the CM's seat. What's really sad though is that the people of the state can't seem to see through their farce either.

I'm trying to keep track of the mass migrations to Mastodon that have happened.

I think it started with:
- early adopters, programmers, FOSS people
- tons of peeps in Japan
- furry community moving off Twitter
- LGBTQ+ folks leaving twitter
- people who saw that polygon article (me) or heard about it when it started getting mentioned on hackernews
- comics/artists leaving twitter
- NSFW blogs leaving Tumblr
- sex workers
- and now, Indian politics Twitter users

Am I missing any big moments?

Looks like more than half the users here from , are writers/authors. I wonder if someone noticed a similar trend with users from other geograhies, which also led to a growth spurt in the user base.

@bharatvarma Thatโ€™s not needed ;-) You can follow / interact with people on other servers! Youโ€™ll only need one account on one server in the fediverse.

See it like email, your address in this case is โ€œ@username@domain.comโ€

If god forbid, there's a lapse in security provided to Rahul Gandhi and family, and something unfortunate were to happen, will the nation hold Modi and the BJP government responsible? Playing politics is one thing, but playing with lives is just next-level evil.

A typical example of today's journalism. Sign-up on a new platform, spend all of 2 mins exploring the features, then write an article on it like you're a pro. But then someone points out that there's more to it than felines and bitcoins, so you add one more paragraph at the end because you're too lazy to rewrite the whole thing.

Sorry, this isn't Netflix - the platform won't 'sustain your interest', you need to find interesting people to follow. Also, .

What is the Liberal Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle?

You can never pinpoint the exact ideological position of a Liberal person, you can only vaguely be sure of which general area they might stand with.

What should you name the Kerala instance on Mastodon?

Kochi Tuskers!

Well, on second thought, maybe not. Not unless, you want the instance to shut down after a year.

Is it just me or is acting up today? It's taking extremely long to refresh/load pages. Or could it have something to do with the server?

We want to add a moderator who speaks Hindi to the team. Must uphold our code of conduct, must stick around on Mastodon, some monetary compensation is included.

Apply over DM or reply. Will try to get through the applications in the following days (Iโ€™m not home though)

It is exciting to be on a new platform where there are no opposing voices, no trolls, no fear of speaking your mind, no account suspensions, no IT cell warriors to make your online life a living nightmare, amongst a plethora of other things that makes Mastodon attractive. But if the quality and topic of discourse is going to be the same here as it was on the birdsite, then is this really going to be any different? It'll just be the minority group peddling propaganda against the majority.

Switched over from to before it was too late. I was able to move over everything, except for my previous toots - wish there was a way to do that. Anyway, you take what you get :0510:
