Social media musings

I’ve been using Mastodon for a couple of weeks (I’m if you want to follow me there) and am beginning to feel like it’s where I want to follow “the world” on social media; it’s certainly more hospitable than Twitter these days.

I haven’t closed my Twitter account nor even stopped the automatic tweets when I post to this blog, but it’s been a long time since I’ve been an active tweeter. Twitter has been useful to communicate with companies when all else fails – but lots of companies are leaving Twitter, so that may not be true much longer.

Facebook has always been where I interact with family and friends, and that hasn’t changed much; it’s not a news source for me and never has been.

Of course, I still do a lot of blog reading (and writing), which I don’t see changing any time soon.

And speaking of learning things on Mastodon, today I found out that Tom Lehreŗ has made all of his albums available for free download on his site at

The site says that it will be shut down in the not too distant future, so if you want to download anything (including sheet music and lyrics as well as the songs themselves), don’t wait! I downloaded all of his albums already.

Shabbat Shalom!
