So I understand that the bird site has started blocking links to common/known Mastodon instances, and that doesn't seem like free speech to me. So... I did a thing.

If you go to it is now a URL shortener that blocks the twitter user agent. That means you can share that link that will redirect to your Mastodon account without the pouty baby stopping you. If you find this helpful can you boost so others can find it? #TwitterMigration #Mastodon #Musk #introduction

I've read many requests to add Mastodon links to GitHub profiles for verification and discovery purposes.

My team is working on allowing you to add a number of social profile links, but given upcoming holiday vacations, it won't ship until the new year. We don't want to rush something out at the potential cost of disrupting what is generally a quiet time for our engineers.

Ordinarily, I wouldn't talk about in progress work on social media, but y'all seem like you can keep a secret.

They're not going to block And while no one likes people who still use for normal links, at least you can get the link out there (ideally with adjacent plain text '' reference as well).

If you’re going to leave Twitter, please don’t

b) delete your Tweets, because their existence doesn’t help Elon and it’s like burning the Library of Alexandria.

Twitter captures a real-time historical record of a couple of decades and the billions of individuals’ snapshots are irreplaceable.

The thought of all those tweets being erased makes me feel physically sick.

I've made a post to share a fascinating little detail of Apple's M1 design so well explained to me by @dougall, as a follow-up to his Rosetta 2 deep-dive blog post.

The Continuity of Splines spoilers 

Did not expect to laugh this hard in an otherwise dry mathematical video.

The Continuity of Splines is now on YouTube!!

it has been a year in the making, goodness ;-;🎉 I hope you'll like it ❤

Eagerly awaiting the two-steps-forward part of this process.

So here's the thing. You can only violate people's legal rights and your own word so far before they lawyer up and come after you.

I really do hope Musk changes his mind and does the right thing - the employees deserve that. But it'll be fun as hell if he doesn't.
