what if I imposed a MINIMUM length on rars (possibly not to replies, sometimes 'yes' or 'no' or '🖕🏾' really IS all you need to say) Show more
what if I just took this down because sometimes I consider microblogging to be fundamentally harmful and started hacking together some kind of longform-oriented thing on top of activitypub with easy-to-use post locking and multiple icons and shit
the former is less likely because "drawing comics" kind of takes all of my time but
I dunno, I think there's a lot more value in a place that invites people to create long entries with some form of nuance - or even to just ramble for a while - than there is in a place still fundamentally designed to imitate the not-even-big-enough-for-a-sentence limitations of Twitter. All our commercial social media has been converging on ever shorter and ever less well thought out posts, because that's more likely to create ✨e✨n✨g✨a✨g✨e✨m✨e✨n✨t✨ without any regards to whether said engagement is healthy for anyone involved in the conversation, because that's what you get when you optimize for serving as many ads as possible.
Anyway I am slightly baked and I am about to shut off the internet to focus on converting a pot of tea into yet another page of my dense, many-paged graphic novel.
