Super selective in approving follow requests here.

Off-hand, I make a note of the following:

1. Do you have a profile picture of you? I toot with a real face, I expect you will too.
2. And then, are you tooting personal stuff? Not just the highlight reel, but also the "difficult" stuff.

That said, please don't self-reject -- if I get a feeling we'll get along, I'll be happy to have you onboard.

But if you must, you may follow me on my public + professional-ish Fosstodon account instead: @celia.

This says it all. Wish I’d said it first.

Tooter.in is just copying #Free
Software and shamelessly calling it 'Made in #India'. It is made by people from around the world and shared freely.

Either they did not write even a single line or they are violating the #AfferoGPL #copyright license, which requires them to publish their changes. They are linking to original code in #gab project repos (which is a fork of #mastodon).

Even the terms of service is just copied with references to first amendment in the USA.

When websites say "use our app, it's much better", they mean better for them, not you.

there's something nice about waking up at 5 AM and looking at the fog

I want a bigger soft toy than the one I have. 😭

Please, if you have a bot, make it post in unlisted rather than in public. There is so many bots posting in public now that the federated timeline is becoming unusable.
I don’t usually ask that, but can you boost this to spread awareness?

I'm always in the mood for a tall glass of fresh lime soda.

There's going to be a talk about diversity at my workplace tomorrow and the main speakers are two white men and 4 upper caste Indians.

I can't, but laugh at the absurdity of all this.

Spent last night reading people's thoughts on Avril Lavigne on Reddit. Just a good old search-all-of-reddit.

I had almost forgotten how amazing her first two albums are (to me).
And now I'm going to spend some time listening to her more recent work.

Feeling drained today, tired of everything, can't do anything.

Is headache supposed be a regular part of life now?

We are already in a complicated situation. The situation in the USA is getting even more complicated now. To protect the mental health of all of us, please use CWs or the hashtag #electionday if you toot about the ongoing election! Thank you!

Good folks out there, I seek to talk with anyone who works in a library of any kind!

I'm trying to understand what it's like as a work environment, get real-life examples of what sort of stresses and responsibilities it entails (won't ask for personal details/pay/location etc).

DM and replies open. Thank you!

We, quite simply, are a safe space. A larger goal is to become a place for you and your friends to feel comfortable not just showing your uber positive highlight reel, but also talk about personal, often difficult, content that other platforms tend to penalize.
