▰ That thing where at 10 of the hour, while on a Zoom call, everyone looks up because their calendars have pinged them about what happens on the hour

▰ I’m still digging using Mastodon ([email protected]) but I don’t think it’s ready for a Twitter exodus. I don’t think it’s intended or designed for a Twitter exodus. It’s complex to use — not overly, but over what would be enjoyable for a large, broad post-Twitter cohort.
