Emerald Manchild Woes on Birdsite

Good lord what the hell has happened during this fine* weekend? (not fine)

The whole world knows what’s up with the recent events at the Twitter dot com. Several things have made me uncomfortable when the manchild took over, but I sort of just let it slide as long as I’m not directly impacted. Of course, he does something that impacted me directly And I Took That Personally™️.

Honestly a good chance for me to make an actual use of my blog (that probably nobody sees) instead of just dumping random thoughts on Twitter.

For the time being, I’ll be trying to use Mastodon in place of Twitter. It’s definitely a struggle because it doesn’t have the same content I’m used to. A really bad habit a lot of people have developed over the past decade was putting a stop on posting on dedicated or personal sites and instead just toss everything into one basket, being their social media of choice. I always preferred social media being a supplement, where a person could easily be themselves while mixing in whatever they like to do. In my case, that’s art.

I never really understood why a lot of people decided to just turn Twitter into their only art gallery. Even though I’ve posted all of my art there, it’s NOT the primary place to find and see it. My “main” art gallery is over at Fur Affinity, followed by this art site. FA being the defacto furry art site and this site being something for me to do as I please.

I’ll see how it goes. I never cared about follower count, but I do care about what I followed. Mastodon for me is pretty barren, but I hope it populates over time.
