A "toot" is always a post, but a "post" may not be a "toot". Sometimes the specificity is desirable, sometimes not.

In my extended family, "toot" means fart.

Which is probably more descriptive of what often gets posted in the fediverse, so there's that.

Toot or post? Which term do you prefer? #Poll

Coming soon…

Adam knows how to make great things that look incredible.

Okie, YTS (torrent website) has an RSS feed also! :blobcatgiggle:

One time a friend had to create an account on Spotify to access a Spotify original podcast which was part of their homework/assignment! 😐

This is shit! No one should be forced to use such platforms with paywalled content and terrible privacy! 🤬 (Also the teacher's bad to give such homework :))

It would be great if there was another way to access the content, like pirated copies, or so! 🤭 :torrent:

If anyone finds any material or method to do so, please share it here for others! ☺️

No, that wasn't a typo.

why the f#$%$ does the ISO website make you pay to look at their standards documentation online? iso.org

just noticed that #tokipona is listed as having an official 3 letter code name on iso639-3.sil.org/code/tok and just wanted to look at the same data not on some creepy missionary website which is apparently what sil.org is since they mention something about the bible on their front page

I've just updated the logos for @FediFollows, @feditips and @FediVideos

Do these look okay? Clear? Also, I hope there's nothing accidentally offensive etc?
