Turning Point USA, the far-right astroturfing group, is holding an event at #NCSU tomorrow at 5:30 to 8:30pm. Charlie Kirk, of TPUSA, and Lara Trump, Eric Trump's wife, will be speaking.
A coalition of students plan to protest this event, but campus police are inhibiting organization. Last night, they detained two organizers.
Mike's one piece of advice for new Mastodon users - dive into that Federated column and follow ANYONE and EVERYONE who looks like they've posted anything at all interesting to you. Just hammer the button. There's no penalty for mistakes. Go wild.
Later, when your Home timeline is buzzing, go in and unfollow people you decide you're not enjoying so much now.
Then do that again a few times. Then some more. Forever.
I don’t have any knowledge of that happening, but as different marginalized groups come to the fediverse, it’s an almost certainty that it’s happening, most likely by multiple entities, under the auspices of anti-terror or other similarly inane reasons, probably even some of which are purely for research or marketing purposes.

Enough is enough. It's absurd that ads for shoes and deodorant receive more scrutiny than political ads.
This isn’t a free speech test. It’s a test of trust and it’s time Facebook stepped up to the plate. tweeted by @Firefox
I’ve been hearing this whole “the kids will save us” line since I was a child myself. In the 1980s.
What that line means is “I can’t be bothered to lift a finger, so I’ll make someone else take the responsibility”.
I'm 39 years old. If the people who had said that about my generation as children had decided to actually do something about either climate change or white supremacy, imagine where we’d be by now.
