I have encountered more image descriptions on Mastodon in 24 hours than I have in Twitter in a couple of years. Seriously. I'm not exaggerating.
As a blind person, this means a lot to me. If you read this and you describe your images, thank you so, so, so much on behalf of all of us. If you don't, now you know you'll be helping random Internet strangers make sense of your posts by typing in a few more words than usual.

text editor recommendations 

I often see things like "nano is too basic, vim and emacs are too messy and hard, atom is slow and vscodium is electron and I don't know what editor to use" (which is of course valid criticism!), so I thought about recommending some less known text editors that I've tried before!

• Lite (github.com/rxi/lite)

it's a small and customizable editor written in Lua and C with SDL, which makes it *really* fast
