If you still have a Twitter account, you may want to retweet this:
it’s so sad how good the podcast Heavyweight once was, then it moved to Spotify, so every few months they release teasers on their old RSS feed begging you to go listen to new episodes exclusively on Spotify.
I once loved the show more than any other and I’ve got a Spotify account but I will never listen to it on Spotify using their shitty music-focused player that I’m guessing I can’t speed up and injects just-in-time ads I can’t skip.
Ivory by Tapbots is launching today.
This app marks the beginning of a new era for Mastodon clients on Apple platforms. It raises the bar in this category, but there’s still work to be done.
I reviewed Tweetbot 1.0 on MacStories in 2011; 12 years later, here is my review of Ivory 1.0:

A plea to journalists covering the Fediverse:
If you want to pitch a story and the only people you can think of to talk to are Gargron and the Journa Host admin, please don't.
Instead, use the time you saved to learn more about how this network functions, who the people behind ActivityPub are (and what that even is), who the people keeping instances running are, who the people moderating instances are; you can even get your hands dirty by digging through the Mastodon GitHub issue queue and learning why exactly some design decisions ended up the way they did, it's all right there!
Mastodon is not off-brand Twitter. You do this entire community a massive disservice by painting it as such, and you do our profession a disservice by expressing a complete lack of curiosity about this community before you report on it.
