Saying it again for new users: The official Mastodon apps kinda suck. They don't have the local/federated timelines that you'll see on Mastodon.lol itself so it might be harder to discover users and posts at first.
There's a bunch of third party apps which I recommend you try and see what feels best for you!
Hi! mastodon.social is being slow right now, as far as I can tell because there's twice as many people using it at the same time as ever have; I'm working on making it go fast again, but in the meantime, do remember to invite people to joinmastodon.org instead of directly to mastodon.social. People don't have to be on the same server to follow you! Thanks!
Imagine Bitcoin mining farms on fire.

German lawmakers call on leader to cut Russia from vital SWIFT payments system
German lawmakers criticized Chancellor Olaf Scholz for not cutting Russia off from the vital high-security payment network, SWIFT, in the European Union’s latest round of sanctions on Moscow.
German Parliament member Norbert Röttgen, from the Christian Democrats party, said on Twitter that cutting Russia from SWIFT is the ''sharpest sword'' for sanctions, adding that: ''The SWIFT exclusion of Russia must not fail now because of Germany!''
As a Russian citizen, I'm really sorry for what currently happens on Ukraine or in the world in general. I wish it would all stop new and be forgotten like a nightmare dream. Ukraine is our neighbor after all, with closely related languages and cultures, and this is great. Why couldn't we just live in peace?
Countries wants as many people to stand for defending their home. And I agree with this if we were attacked, but in this case we're the bad one here...
