  1. MIA: news media as watchdog. Headlines reflect Pentagon spin to North Korea as the bad guy in this story of a defection.

  7. Twitter announcement about blocking links is vaporware for every site except Mastodon.

    Sunday morning, Twitter support announced a new policy with regard to Twitter's allowing external links to competing websites. Supposedly, Elon was blocking links to a half dozen sites, included Post.
  8. Curate your timeline !

    I truly don’t understand complaints about seeing posts (here, Twitter with some exceptions, Mastodon) that they don’t want to see. Don’t follow people who discuss topics you’re not interested in.

    Argh. I know better than ✍️ in a beta environment rather than write elsewhere and then paste. But I just did. And didn’t make a copy. Got frustrated because every time I pasted a link, nothing happene
