Twitter/X has hung around longer than most of us had anticipated, and at this point its hard to say how long it will take Elon to get bored with his toy. Fussing with the algorithm disrupted the automatic connection between our RSS feed and the LGM twitter account, which is why that profile slowed down considerably over the past few months. We’ve hired an intern to manage our non-automatic feeds, which has (for the moment) reactivated X, Bluesky, and Threads. Here’s where we are right now in terms of group feeds and individual feeds (I will eventually repost this as a Page):

LGM

  • Facebook You can follow my public posts, but I try to keep the numbers of friends low. The public posts are most of them, anyway.
  • Twitter I refuse to use Elon’s letter. It’s not possible to completely divest until a great many other accounts do, but I don’t post much.
  • Bluesky This is where I mostly post now. I am concerned about what will happen with federation, but the developers haven’t asked my opinion.
  • Mastodon I don’t post much here. I’ve never fully figured out how it works.

Lemieux

DJW

Loomis

Nexon

Nussbaum

  • Twitter/X – I’m still here, though my posting has dwindled almost to nothing
  • Bluesky – still ramping up on this platform
  • Mastodon – more and more I feel like Mastodon is an evolutionary dead end, but my account is still live
  • Tumblr – I reblog things with absolutely no regularity, and occasionally write longer posts that feel too long for Twitter/BlueSky, but not polished enough for a blog
  • Blogspot – still the best place to find my writing that isn’t LGM. Blogs were cool, could we maybe bring them back?
