Also:

🧐 Experiment with different accounts on different instances (sites like instances.social/list can help you). Every instance has different feel, vibe and community (and rules). Find one that you prefer or use mutliple accounts/personas/instances.

🏷️ Use plenty of #Hashtags as it is the only way to actually search through the #Fediverse...

❓ Ask around! Many people will be pleased to guide you.. There is no stupid question :)

💖 Be part of making the Fediverse better and more welcoming!

uspol, covid-19, explaining a trend 

the US lying about its COVID-19 numbers and stopping tracking them to make it look like they're doing better they are in reality is simply the most recent example of a pervasive problem under American capitalism. Namely, that if you change the way you measure a problem so that it looks better, that's orders of magnitude cheaper than actually addressing the problem.

Evergreen examples off the top of my head, all from economics bc it's the worst offender in this:
- Federal poverty line is a laughably small amount so that it can be claimed that there's few people in poverty talkpoverty.org/2016/09/13/pov
- US unemployment statistics are juked to look better than they actually are. this one's a great parallel to COVID too bc it *used* to be measured in a more sensible way but they changed it bc it looked bad unemploymentdata.com/unemploym
- The USA doesn't even keep official track of under-employment, which is a massively pervasive problem forbes.com/sites/payout/2017/0

Covid-19, Fuck Capitalism 

Covid-19 is a practice general strike for North America. Tricky part is getting capitalist mind-prisoned workaholics to see they can actually NOT be stressed out, killing themselves running on hamster wheels for billionaire profit for a week or four. This is a crack in the prison bars.

I would've preferred to stay home today but having to do one thing at the office isn't too bad when almost nobody is here.

So, COVID-19 is successful, and is seeing worldwide adoption. I can't wait to see what new features and bugfixes COVID-20 will bring. Can't find any release schedule anywhere, though...
