So I See America's News Media Has Been Covering Itself With Glory This Weekend

And by glory, I mean shit.

That woman is Kim Yo Jong, North Korea's Minister for Propaganda, responsible for ordering at least a hundred political executions.

When BuzzFeed has to call you out for shoddy journalism, you know you've screwed up.
(Stan is a portmanteau of stalker and fan.)

Also, I'm on my 19th 20th 21st 22nd 23rd suspension on Twitter right now.

Also, back to reinventing cryptocurrencies again just after I got it working the third time.

I've come to loath and fear

Our corrupt press, 
But I must confess 
Some astonishment

To see it descend
Into this hot mess.


All this Olympiad needs is a Zeppelin doing a low pass.

2 Goebbels in drag. How charming.

3 Frankly, I'm surprised you're visible enough on Twitter to get reported and suspended.

4 I never had a problem with Twitter until they changed the rules last December.  Ten years without a hitch, followed by 21 suspensions in under two months.

I could change my behaviour, but at this point it's easier just to start my own social network.  (mee.ms, coming in March/April!)

5 The only time I got suspended was early on, when I @named someone who had blocked me (after he lost an argument) just as I was replying. They said I was trying to circumvent his block or something. I think they must have changed that rule since then. These days I merely get unthreaded, semi-shadowed, and hidden below the "Click for more comments" line (Ever click that and have nothing else show up? that's a special level of naughty). So I pretty much don't post. I did break my personal 4000 tweet cap, but since they keep deleting stuff, I should be back down to that soon enough.

6 You could switch to an instance of Ostatus, you know. Pawoo, maybe. Or even roll your own.

7 I chose option C.  smile

Back-end and API are complete, working on the UI now.

8 One reason I rolled my own was that I wanted an updated platform for mee.nu as well.  So it does a lot more than Twitter (though lacking some Twitter features I don't care about), and also more than Minx currently does.

9 Well, does it federate with OStatus or not?

Posted by: Pete Zaitcev at Saturday, February 17 2018 03:01 AM (h8yX6)

10 No, the OStatus standard, such as it is, is awful.  I'd sooner support NNTP.

I am looking at ActivityPub though.

Apple pies are delicious. But never mind apple pies. What colour is a green orange?
