if i could interject for a moment, what you are referring to as "invention" is actually "improvement", you see #mastodon is actually an implementation of the #ostatus protocol that has also been implemented by gnu/social, hubzilla, and others. these make up a wider social network known as the #federation.
Oh, shit, #Uber's board looks to be maneuvering out their founder!
After chatting with folks from #UnionCab #coop in #Madison, I've been getting to thinking at a #Federation of #workercoop cab companies with a shared #platformcoop app might just be the way to take on the "ridesharing" behemoths once the #VC $ starts to run dry... #deleteuber

@ItchCraft but I remember having to explain the importance of uploading a user picture to friends first setting up facebook and twitter. the idiosyncrasies of federation become second nature quite quickly. It may take many years before it will happen but the mainstreaming of #federation is already taking place.
@nolan Would one see the replies if the replies are from someone else that they follow along with following you?
Seems like it'd be great to see replies from /everyone/ in each conversation one participates in in order to make it easier to find other people to connect with.
