My darling , a reminder that after the initial burst of energy as you explored Mastodon, you'll be drawn back to Twitter. You're addicted, I'm addicted, Twitter wants us to stay that way by making us endlessly upset.

Make a mindful effort to pop in here once a day at least to toot something, or boost something. You're actively building community now, and it matters for the future.
