"But why are you still on Twitter?"

Listen. I am an internet ancient. I stood amidst LiveJournal as it crumbled while I watched the fall of Flickr. I was there both times Tumblr burned down, toasting marshmallows over its smouldering ruin, laughing at the folly of Verizon. The death of Twitter was foretold by the dark prophecies of the forgotten internets. I am there to witness its passing as the old internet is dying and the new internet struggles to be born. Now is the time of monsters.

Frage mich, warum alle schwarz-gelben Politiker die gerade so gegen den Atomausstieg poltern nicht darüber reden wer sie 2011 gezwungen hat dafür zu stimmen. Ich meine, dass muss doch eine krasse Verschwörung sein. 🤔

Diese Kernkraft-Geschichte wird ja zunehmend unübersichtlich.

Aber wusstet Ihr, dass die FDP den Rekord für AKW abschalten hält? Und wer alles dafür gestimmt hat? Und was jetzt ohne Kernkraft passiert und wie viel wir nach 🇫🇷 exportieren?

Here you go:

Arrived in DUS for . Fracking tired and stoked. Also: I managed to pour red wine all over my only piece of warm clothing during my flight from KUL. If you smell an open bar somewhere, say hi 🙈

Reached our goal of going from Hanoi to Kuala Lumpur without flying. It's been 3 months, 5 countries, and too many buses and trains to count 💪

I hate aircon. Why do you have to cool a room down to a temperature that requires you to wear long pants and a hoodie, when it's 30+° C outside? 🥶

Next checkmark on the "make twitter horrible" to-do list.

Best thing about flying to DUS is that I don't have to keep up with the shenanigans at BER. Last time I arrived there, I almost got stuck in an electric door.

Starting my journey from Kuala Lumpur to Düsseldorf for @btconf. This probably the longest I ever travelled to a conference 🛫

Looking very much forward to this. It's been a while! Who's gonna be there? 🥳

Oktoberfest (ein Drogenfest) trotz Pandemie feiern wollen, aber bei Canabis mimimi.

Das nennt man wohl Doppelmoral.

Die Ampel ist grundlegend auf dem Irrweg. Drogenlegalisierung ist einfach der falsche Weg. Karl Lauterbach schlägt als Gesundheitsminister ernsthaft die Gründung von Drogen-Clubs vor. Das löst keine Probleme, sondern schafft neue. Hände weg von Drogen!

Wenn du in Physik eine 5 hattest, aber in Deutsch eine 2- und dann der Chefredakteur der WELT zu dir sagt: "Schreib mal was gegen Wärmepumpen, gerne auch eine neue Angriffslinie, die wir noch nicht hatten".

Do you know of any beautiful examples of Component Libraries built with or ? Preferably for or projects.

What movie lines, with exact intonation, are burned into your brain?

Note: I don’t think the make-shit-up-machines are going to create some sort of AI singularity apocalypse. That’s wishful thinking.

I just think they’re going to be used for spam and misinformation, and they’re going to hurt people who are already fragile in a world of growing fascism and ongoing calamity.

And all so a few techbros can say they were first.

I am curious. Who here has made the full switch from Twitter to Mastodon since that muppet took over?

RT @missjansevilla
It's quite intriguing what AI does in coming up with these travel suggestions. I have a feeling that you had fun while at the same concerned about leading a travel blogger going to Vietnam astray. Very timely post for this extraordinary times @bl2life :-)

Seems like Twitter turns into the opposite of a free-speech platform. Who would have guessed 🤡
