mastodon performance is going to be very bad today. for everyone, on every instance. please do not bother your admins about this. thank you, we love you, maybe take a nice lil walk outside in the crisp late autumn morning (or spring evening, whatever hemisphere) while you wait for your picture of your cat to upload. cheers.

@alex oh look, just like my real dad, not actually helping me

@alex oh man everythings getting hit hard lol. did the mass resignations yesterday really drive this much traffic today

@alex im a bit mean now :blobcatevil2: that might also be a reason to join a comfy pleroma/misskey instance :comfy:

@alex Really squandering my ability to entice new follows with my cats Alex!

@alex Looks out of window. Given how heavy that rain is I'll be better off staying in and somehow introducing even more bugs to the server.

@alex if you intend to bother your admin, take these simple steps:

1. Write out the message.
2. Subtract the remaining character count from 1000.
3. Donate a number in your local currency equal to the result of step 2 to your admin.
4. Delete the message and have a cuppa.

@jayatid @alex Yesterday was an ultimatum Space Karen set for Twitter employees. It basically said "agree to hardcore and extreme work or get 3 months severance".

Some sources say currently 200 people are left at Twitter. Some are wondering if Twitter will survive the weekend.

@jesper @alex I didn't think that would directly translate into immediate user movement to Mastodon or at least not so immediately. Interesting times!

@kebokyo @alex Twitter is IMPLODING and everyone's fleeing. A lot of them are fleeing to fedi. So lots of instances are slammed right now!

(Over here we've barely even noticed. Made some new friends though. =^.^=)

@frostwolf @alex I thought that already happened. Didn’t know there was another wave happening

@kebokyo @frostwolf @alex yeah there's supposedly a big wave of employees leaving twitter now which triggered more people jumping ship

Satire. Don't do what Johnny Don't Does 

@alex so what you're saying is @ tag our admin(s), complain, AND self-boost that post? On it!

@alex performance on my pleroma instance is very good

@alex Also, maybe look up how your instance is supported, and chip in if you can. I signed up for Techhub's patreon today.

@alex as @joenewberry sez the outside is good for your insides. Have a terrific weekend all y’all. 🍂🍁😎

@alex Do people actually write the admin, call IT, or complain to the company? Maybe it's working in corporate for so long, but I avoid calling at all costs. If things act slow, I figure they need a vacation and I give them one.
