Media is silent coz the victim is Muslim.
Politicians are silent coz the victim is Muslim.
Policemen are not performing their duty fairly coz the victim is Muslim.
IIT Madras has not suspended the professor she accused coz the victim is Muslim.

Artificial scapegoat: Why algorithms can't be blamed for political or corporate decisions
Basically @Anupam_Guha says, don't blame AI blame the humans behind the AI

One among many challenges, yes -- the biggest challenge, of course is the network effect -- people want to be where people already are. And its UX has a long way to go. But it's being there at all as an alternative is in itself a big plus.

[email protected]@twitter.comto be an official account of @RahulGandhi on @[email protected] on hasnt showed up on @Twitter so far. If its a genuine account, then political journos, esp. those tracking cong, may have no option but to get onto mastodon.

Mastodon is not Twitter
BUT THIS ALONE WILL NOT HELP...
...if you are still tangled in a Twitter-mindset!!

Are you still searching for the Trending Topics that will impose to everyone what is the thing about whom you "must" talk today?

Are you searching for "people to follow" instead of "people to interact with"?

Are you still planning time wasting things like hashtag wars instead of doing something real?

Are you searching for emotional and social gratifications by the number of retweets you received?

Are you still judging a post by the number of likes that received?

Are you still writing '"cool lines posts" for obtaining likes insted of writing interesting posts that stimulates discussion and interaction?

If so, pkease pay attention: there is still much Twitter INSIDE YOU.

(It takes some time to heal 😉)

Seeing lots of well-known figures in India setting up @[email protected] accounts. @[email protected] just the latest. This is great! Next up: ditch WhatsApp for @[email protected]!

Will India ditch the monolithic American services in favor of open source distributed solutions? Hope so! twitter.com/samzsays/status/11

Yes -- and cleanliness and sanity are basics that sane people cannot and should not have to manage without for too long.

Federated options like fsmi.social, mastodon.social etc are giving social media new possibilities. But do think the party at violent downtown pubs will still continue, just that mastodon is like creating cleaner, saner neighbourhoods to party. twitter.com/samzsays/sta…

There doesnt seem to be any rational explanation for why @[email protected] continues to be in denial mode - that @[email protected] is broken, and unless it's fixed, they will pay.

Delighted to see the editor of The Caravan on #mastodon. Hope all the other sane journalists/publications will follow.

Time to explore saner, independent options in the social media space..
1. Opened a free account in fsmi.social 2. Downloaded Amaroq from AppStore. And that’s it! Exploring, so still figuring out... @[email protected] @[email protected]
