Twitter Jack suddenly had the bright idea of a decentralized Twitter, all on his own!!
@socialskeleton isn't this them just hoovering up all the open source stuff so they can ultimately control its development? they know the fediverse exists, this is almost certainly going to be "let's kill it before it gets big by doing it ourselves, but worse and with a marketing budget"
@velexiraptor there's common narrative of "embrace and extinguish" that open source projects tell each other around the campfire. I don't know whether it's true, but I think Jack's naked dishonesty in this announcement, knowing full well we exist (he literally follows us) is craven.
@socialskeleton that stupid fuck must be so far off reality...
And I bet he gets through with this and fedi projects will implement their shitty standard.
kinda rabbling response.
@socialskeleton I get the impression this might be worst possible time line for a lot of mastodon people but I have been saying this for a while. victory is going to look like just being another instance on the fediverse, most likely blocked by every instance with self respect.
@socialskeleton a month or so after following...how do you spell it? mastadon?
@socialskeleton "Hey get this guys: decentralized, but with forced Nazi interaction." -Jack's pitch🍺

(at) jack says, "Twitter is funding a small independent team of up to five open source architects, engineers, and designers to develop an open and decentralized standard for social media. The goal is for Twitter to ultimately be a client of this standard."
(at) MastodonProject replies, "Jack..."
(at) BitScout says, "If only there were such a system already in place! Imagine that!"
@trashcat thank you for taking care of this
@socialskeleton holy fuck
