If you're feeling lost right now, and you want to know what to do. How do we organize now? A comrade in the communist collective I'm in put together this really good introductory text compilation that I HIGHLY recommend you read:

docs.google.com/document/d/1lP

It's only 54 pages, it's not dense, it's very accessible. You can read it all in 1-2 hours and you will feel a lot more prepared afterward. It's worth your time whoever you are, I promise.

In case you're wondering, yes, of course we're running the latest Mastodon security update 3.1.2 (have been for a few hours).

TootWorks is safe™️

Lovely colleagues, we're taking the dive towards Mastodon 3.1.1 in a few short moments to prepare for the impending security patch on Thursday .. shouldn't cause any downtime 🙂

I want a social media place where people talk about themselves and the thing they dream of, maybe complain about their failing mental health, and make shitposts. authenticity.
