Just got locked out of Twitter ... again ... because of this tweet, and so was @exiledsurfer for giving me a heads up on the article.

You can't make this up.

Mastodon + Mesh Networking + LN payments............

I think that’s ultimately where we need to get in order to avoid the same issues other major platforms are now facing.

The thing that really impresses me about Mastodon is the number of native clients available in the App Store. It leaves me scratching my head why Gab wasn’t able to emulate this model to bypass the App Store ban? Basically, they could publish a white label client (no Gab branding) but users then add a Gab API key after install to make it into a Gab app. What am I missing here?

I hereby declare this Mastodon server to be under Blockstream dominion. All your toots are belong to us.

I can look into it. Guess it depends on how many drinks i have this weekend playing rock n roll music down at the sock hop

Perhaps Mastodon could even serve a role in LN routing. 🤔 Imagine a Lightning bolt icon next to the star icon below a toot. Instantly send a tip to that person with the press of a button.

@mikeinspace think about it: such a thing would have needed to be done with a Tipping Bot on Twitter. With Mastodon, someone (not me) can actually build native integration right into the platform.

LN micro-tipping integration would be cool...

Crypto-Twitter migration to Mastodon could be the black swan event Mastodon has needed.

halcyon.toromino.de/ is a really nice Twitter "theme" for web if Mastodon feels too foreign.

@nvk just curious: what is your server capacity in terms of users?
