Want to talk with people around you? You can use geographical hashtags! You can use to find yours and to read messages close to you.

To be fair, I am not in favor of forcing people to give their exact location on a website (although mine is completely static and doesn't save your info in any way) so I would really like it if someone can make a better tool to find your and someone else's local tag.

Also, I would love it if you build this in apps.

COVID-19 is exposing a lot of truths.
The free market is useless in any kind of crisis. It is barely functional in terms of mobilising labour and resources in the best conditions, it is flat out useless when things are tough - and things are going to get tough as the climate worsens and the oil runs out.
It turns out that the people paid the least in society are the most important, and many highly regarded jobs just aren't all that important.

For everyone who has a account or is interested in it, the 20th of March a fork will happen, forking out Steemit Inc. at It should deal with basically all problems that are dealt with now and all criticism that people had about Steemit so far. I highly recommend staying tuned about this, it's a huge step in decentralized social media.

@MartinShadok nun plene enrete, mi ĵus memoris vin pro la "heviti", ĝi parolas pri la h-problemo se oni havas la francan kiel gepatran lingvon...

Venu elprovi aŭ pli bone, starigu vian propran WriteFreely-servilon kaj komencu uzi ĝin kun mia Esperanta traduko, eble aldonante tradukojn kie mi ankoraŭ ne tradukis/forgesis partojn...

Por ĉiuj ĉi tie kiuj parolas Esperanton kaj ŝatus kunlabori pri pli bonaj ebloj por la estonteco de interkontaktiĝo por Esperantistoj, mi ŝatus se vi legos kaj donos al mi viajn pripensojn.

Since a long time logging in again on my Mastodon spot. I am playing with some other technology, and it looks like a truly P2P social network is actually there, although in its infancy. PM me if you are interested in P2P rather than federation and/or server independent profiles.

My latest trip made me realize that I am more trans that I thought I was. I updated my profile to pangender. Please use any pronounce you are happy about using with me. I am perfectly happy with the genders people assign to me and I am perfectly happy with my body, there is no mismatch at play.

@mew sorry, just have to say to you how cool your Temmie userpic is. can't help.

This is an Esperanto-speaking instance, so it goes without saying that users are expected to toot in Esperanto. There are a million other instances to create your account if you intend to toot in English or any other language.
