Can we vote to change "toot?" The word "toot" is what my childhood Sunday school teachers used to mean "fart"
@chasevasic Yeah, I think it should be retoot, not boost
@chasevasic Maybe instead of TOOT! we have a SHILL! button?
@btcFUD haha. That should be the word for retweet
@chasevasic Yeah it's stupid.
@chasevasic We should also stop having "conversations" as that is the word for "sexual relations" in early translations of the Bible.
@BitcoinBelle I suggest that we instead have "mouth flappys," "finger scribbles," "thought squabbles," and "phoneme exchanges"
@chasevasic You can totally create a platform that calls them that. It's a brave new world.
@BitcoinBelle seriously though, I just think "toot" is kind of a lame alternative to "tweet." I get that it's supposed to be a reference to an elephant using it's trunk as a horn. Maybe there's a better word? I wonder if an Asian or African language has a good word for the sound of an elephant.
@chasevasic what is another sound an elephant would make? a chortle?😂
