3MY Round-Up: Flipping The Bird
A round up and notes from the last couple of weeks at 3 Million Years
In The Beginning
So, Twitter has a new owner. I’m unsure how I feel about this now, and I think many people I follow are holding fire. I will probably do the same thing. Currently, the alternatives seem to be Instagram, Tumblr and Mastadon. All have their upsides and downsides, but to my mind, there doesn’t seem to be a viable alternative. There is talk about certain people being un-banned from Twitter; I would advise using the ‘block’ and ‘mute’ buttons if this is the case.
I was worried I wouldn’t have a new issue of Custard out before Christmas, but things seem to be moving on well. I’ve done some writing, drawn some comics and now have to do some cooking. I seem to be the only one in the house who likes rice pudding, so it will all be for me.
