Bye bye birdsite

In early June I pinned a “nobody’s home” post to my profile and said goodbye to Twitter. After 15 years, I was sad to leave behind friends and colleagues, but glad to get away from the hate, the nazis, and the transphobes. I hadn’t been posting much since Elno took over anyway, and was happily building a new network over on Mastodon. This morning I finally removed the Twitter links from my home page. Bye bye birdsite.

If you want to find me now I’m @wragge@hcommons.social. If you’re still wondering about making the move to Mastodon, I can heartily recommend hcommons.social as a friendly, well run instance. They also have a really useful guide to Mastodon for humanities scholars.
