1 On the one hand, distributed social media sounds interesting.

OTOH, I would want to check the substance on anything coming from Jack Dorsey. 

Gripping hand, my MO with social media is figuring out how the administrators are going to behave, and if they will allow what I am interested in saying.  I'm not sure I care for the risks of a distributed scheme.

2 Well, wheels always need reinventing.  It's not like there's not already dozens of federated social networking platforms, or that we really needed to rebuild usenet but enhanced with dark patterns.  Hopefully Musk can convince Dorsey and Zuck to be the first billionaires on Mars.

3 Still not seeing included tweets. Current Firefox, Noscript is not blocking anything on the page, and neither is AdBlock.

4 Yeah, I'll need to figure that out.  I'll check Brave as well.

5 Check the level of blocking FF is doing.  I found that the default (I think) level of anti-tracking kept Twitter from showing up on most sites and I had to dial it back a notch.
