hypothesis: by filtering out posts on social media that conspicuously incorporate the word "y'all", you can eliminate a huge chunk of content that's not worthwhile

Posting on birdsite: kind of like attaching sticky notes to this lovely blue container...

I find it amazing that they haven't ever set up a POTUS micro-blogging website (you know, like anyone can do on the e Web), from which they sync the administration's posts to the respective birdsite and facebork accounts.. Granted, facebork doesn't even support that anymore, but I'm sure it would've been easy to make an exception for the API in that case.

Even dumber: people seem to think that's impossible, and that a couple of corporations should control this information in the first place.

I'm also sure them requiring public display names and refusing to decouple it from SIM cards, which are KYCd in most countries these days, is purely to protect your privacy.

Aha:

> The judge has ruled Assange should be discharged. The U.S. government asks for him to be kept in custody while they appeal; the defense requests his immediate release. The parties have taken a recess to discuss their positions on the matter.

By the way, that same judge, who now fears he's suicidal, is the one who kept him locked up in isolation for years.
