There will be many tributes to T N Seshan, who headed the Election Commission when it was proud to be independent. I loved his succinct summary of the fate of nations:

"We lost character everywhere. Fundamental laws of physics: human nature turns to chaos. I will give you a simple example. Don't go to your son's bedroom for 15 days. It will look like a warfield. To make it clean, you need to put in energy. To make it unclean, you don't need any effort. Third law of thermodynamics."

@Gargron I made you, I made Mastodon and I made cats. You follow and boost cats on Mastodon, but you don't follow or boost me. You're turning into Jack.

A couple pointers I’ve found useful being new on #mastodon... well, I’m an hour old on this platform, so assume I only know so much ...

1. Set up your profile first. It really helps correlate who you are (very likely coming from twitter).

2. To add someone, goto their profile and click on the profile icon with a +.

3. If you are on iOS, amaroq’s search is pretty good. But tootle’s toot and features are good.

We want to add a moderator who speaks Hindi to the mastodon.social team. Must uphold our code of conduct, must stick around on Mastodon, some monetary compensation is included.

Apply over DM or reply. Will try to get through the applications in the following days (I’m not home though)

For those journalists and media houses, tired of the tyranny of Twitter, and who are covering #AYODHYAVERDICT tomorrow, it would be sweet revenge if you #TootNotTweet
