So there you go. Sounds like it's official.
Anyone making a third-party Twitter app might be wise to switch their efforts into making a Mastodon app instead.
One of the most influential rap songs of all time (Ether) contained a homophobic slur. The rapper (Nas) took a lot of criticism for this decades later. So he now performs the song without the slur, and re-released the track without it.👍🏿
Lizzo released a track with an ableist slur. She took heat for this on Twitter too. She apologized, and re-cut the song without the slur.👍🏿
Conversations about what a person said, are valid.
You don't get "cancelled" for mis-speaking. It's the doubling down.
As a human rights lawyer who has done extensive immigration work, let me make something absolutely clear.
Asylum is legal immigration.
There's no "port of entry" requirement.
There's no "visa" requirement.
There's no "first country" requirement.
You enter the United States, and you apply for asylum.
Because asylum is legal immigration. Period.

Risks to Mastodon with increasing popularity
Interesting comment on Hackernews regarding a possible scenario/long term risk should Mastodon threaten the corporate sphere of social media.
I took a few minutes to write up some notes on how Mastodon is different from Twitter for some friends: https://johnresig.com/blog/twitter-mastodon/ Maybe this can be useful to you all, as well? (Although I suspect that if you're already on Mastodon it's a bit preaching-to-the-choir.) I'm excited to become more active in this community!
