OK instead of doomscrolling what I'm doing is reaching out to everybody in my contact list, asking them if they voted yet, asking them how they're doing, and commiserating about our anxiety. It's led to some great conversations with old friends today. I highly recommend it!
Mastodon is a non-corporate alternative to a social network like Twitter. It consists of a federation of independently run servers which can exchange information with each other. This server, introverts.social, is meant to be a small and low-key one, intended mostly for people who are already my friends in real life. Sign-ups are by admin approval only.
