Liberals now reading this, who scoff at the very idea of the persecution of Christians in the 21st century: I want you to pay close attention, that you are indeed scoffing at that idea, because soon you won’t be scoffing anymore. Remember.

If claims in a new lawsuit, Doe v. Twitter [link] are true, Twitter refused to remove an explicit video of a 13-year-old sex trafficking victim. The video got over 167,000 views. Why is this not a criminal case? I’d like to know.

Horrible.

I don’t think about whether or not I’m racist.

No serious person accuses me of being racist.

I try to love all people. I am commanded to do so. People fascinate me.

I am bored by the MSM’s concern over fake racism, and by conservatives’ replies.

I’m experimenting with my microblog, making improvements, learning best practices. Then I’ll write instructions & improve requirements for a new plugin.

Love “WP Twitter Auto Publish”—featured images go to Twitter. Here’s me and my NAS!

SocialBlade says [link] I’ve lost 4,276 net followers since Jan. 8, when Pres. Trump was blocked by Twitter—despite 100s of new followers. I’m not sure what proportion is due to Twitter banning accounts vs. people leaving in disgust.

On StartThis.org, my WordPress microblog, I added a plugin (“WP Twitter Auto Publish”) that pushes all new posts to Twitter. If you are reading this on Twitter, hey, it works! Has a handy backlink for replying on my blog too.

As Jack promised, broader conservative Twitter suspensions have arrived. Today they include Michelle Malkin, Right Side Broadcasting Network, and the Gateway Pundit, according to OAN [link]. Despite gaining dozens of new followers, I lost another 200 net (down 11.5% from peak).

So, China sanctions hated foreign individuals in the United States [link here]—just as the Democrats themselves want to do with hated Trump admin officials and key supporters.

They wouldn’t do this unless they were confident that Biden wouldn’t retaliate. Disgraceful.

Well, on my first day of microposting, I made 11 posts.

Could I see doing this instead of Twitter? Sure. Especially if I install a plugin that automatically tweets each post. That’s my intention.

So long as I can draw people back here to reply.

I love the fact that I could host this microblog myself, with the NAS and Internet connection I already own and pay for. As I wrote earlier [link], owning my own server is one of my best technical decisions. It replaced Dropbox, Google Docs and Cal, Slack, and iOS notes, and more.

Hey, if you respond to any of these, please keep the responses to 280 characters. I’m just trying to see how much sense the idea of using WordPress for social media actually makes.

I am trying to install the WordPress ActivityPub plugin for this new microblog, but am for some reason having trouble finding the feed via mastodon.social. Not sure what’s going on.
