Had a real LOL and even my cat thinks I'm mad.
The first item in my Reddit feed was a very well done pic of the 'new' twitter CEO - Elena Musk.
It really made this Photoshop fanboy giggle.
May be removed soon as /WSB doesn't like humour.
...I use Mastadon - most of the folk I follow on Twitter are moving to it and letting everyone know but the interface takes some time to get used to.
They are also reporting a big increase in the number of members coming from Twitter (it was in my feed recently but I can't quickly work out how to find it).
I guess like most things you weigh up the pros and con.
Like the Swiss flag, not having Musk involved is a big plus.
Maybe I'm too naïve or just a cynic.
"We <badcyberguys> have taken down your cybery infrastructure but didn't touch your digital emblemy stuff.
Now do this/send us <some demand or other> so it stays that way."
Really, unless EVERYBODY plays by the same rules it just seems to be like a blunt pencil - pointless.
Still a sad state of affairs all round.
War and hate really sucks.

I used to have a neat Scalextric setup in my upstairs bedroom when I were a young'un.
Used to enjoy playing with it when I could.
Unfortunately because it used to cause such interference with the downstairs telly, I could only do it when there was nobody else home.
So basically twice a year :-(
Not as fast as a chopper --->
I came to say something similar but for footwear rather than underwear.
Here in Oz thongs usually comes in pairs and are worn on feet (or thrown at head by angry mum).
AKA flip-flops in some places, I believe.
Still, these days auto-correct will have anybody typing something they didn't Nintendo.
...if you use something like uBlock Origin, you can block that popup/specific element and continue to see as much as you want of twitter.
I'm in no way suggesting that is necessarily a good thing just that it's what I do if I get the 'urge' to want to see more <shudder>.
He can't see you --->
As a professional lazy person, I concur with your grandad's statement.
I always told my clients that I'm so lazy that I only want to do the job once so it needs to be done properly.
A few of them can remember finding out the hard way with the old "If you don't have time to backup data (or pay somebody to set it up), do you have the time to re-type it all over again?"
Always time for one of those --->
So, how does this work in the real world? Were the original 'innovations' not patented so now Apple takes out a patent and can now sue retrospectively?
Never understood how this stuff works.
Certainly, both my Amiga 500 and 1200 beg to differ that Apple is being innovative. Not sure if I still have my C64.
My coat has a dust rag in the pocket ---->
Here in Oz (at least in my part out bush) there are AEDs outside Post Offices as well as other well-frequented places such as some parks, in shopping centres, some major bus depots and the like.
Our various 'helping' orgs (such as Lions) oft times have fundraising for them.
Being isolated we then wait for one of these or a plane ----->
