Brightly burn in our hearts.
For the sake of this land
Let unity blossom!

There are some new EU accounts you can follow on Mastodon!

@EEAS (European External Action Service) is the diplomatic service of the EU representing Europe across the world.

@IHI (Innovative Health Initiative) is a EU public-private partnership, funding health research and innovation. Follow them for news on funding opportunities!

@eib (European Investment Bank) is where you can keep up-to-date on sustainable projects that make impact on people’s lives in Europe and beyond.


When can we expect to see a #mastodon icon alongside those for Facebook et al for easier sharing of content?

If Mastodon is too hard for someone to use, maybe it’s because they’re stupid. Which is a great way to keep out trolls, who are not known for their sparkling intellects.

2005: Rupert Murdoch paid $580m for Myspace.
2009: he sold it in $35m.

2008: Bebo was sold for $850m, to AOL. The founders later bought it back for $1m. It was regarded as one of the worst deals ever made in the dot-com era.

2013: Yahoo paid $1.1bn for Tumblr. 2019: they sold it in $3m.

Elon Musk paid $44bn for Twitter. If history has taught us anything it's that this isn't going to end well… when there wasn't a viable business model in the first place.
