Hah. This guy replied (then immediately blocked me):
We are only talking about social media, and we fundamentally agree that that usage was literal. But thanks for showing you can't back up anything you said and provide alternate social media, or any news media forum, to match those
So Glenn’s usage wasn’t literal at first, then it was literal. Also, those were their goal posts, not mine. They wanted me to back up things I didn’t say.
Their initial reply didn’t seem to have that much animosity, so I presumed good faith. I guess this is another lesson in determining when something is worth replying to or not.
We fundamentally disagree about social media being “the internet.” I didn’t say he will have the same voice or was just trying to be social. I was responding to your context of the subset “social platforms.” I don’t think anyone is guaranteed an audience (or the same audience size), especially when relying on other people’s “free” services.
To be clear, I take issue with companies consulting the government about removing content. I’m also no fan of Facebook, which is one reason I promote the indieweb. In the context of the actual internet, I don’t think it’s unreasonable to say “vaporizing” was a bit hyperbolic. I guess you disagree based on the SMH. Not that your disagreement is relevant. ;]
I disagree and find this hyperbolic, especially about “monopoly.” There are many alternatives to being social online. It’s naive to think AJ is now “vaporized from the internet.”
Facebook is not “the internet.”
.@nprgreene On @UpFirst, “mostly uneventful” is a weird descriptor for the Portland police seriously wounding by shooting grenades into the anti-racist crowd. They would have killed a person if not for their helmet.

Those are called Twitter Cards. I don't have a specific WordPress plugin recommendation to add that; there are probably several. Twitter has a Card validator so you can confirm if the plugin's working: https://cards-dev.twitter.com/validator
This should be fixed now. Can you try logging in again and let me know?
Awesome! How did this event go? If this is a recurring event, I’d like to include it in our list of events at https://indieweb.org/events. Also, is there an organizer we can list?
Finally, some goat news.

Fix your shitty site, @jack.
Cool! Any recommendations? I’m an omnivore and don’t mind vegetarian/vegan.
It’s for everybody. :] But yes, webmentions were developed in the indieweb community and a lot of our personal sites support it so we can interact between our sites.
I’m biased, but the indieweb chat is a good place to keep up with things people are doing on their personal sites and get inspired! https://indieweb.org/discuss
@nicopolitan Whereabouts are you in LA? I’m going to a concert at Anaheim House of Blues this Saturday. If you’re not too far away, maybe we could grab a bite beforehand.
I was reminded of ICQ today and tried logging in. I remembered my ID and the password I used from the late ’90s. Good jorb, brain.

@thetwilightsown Hey Mark, I just got an email confirmation about the album shipping (awesome!) but unfortunately my address has changed. I replied to the email but wasn't sure if a human would see it. Should I email someone else?
