Huh. Toots and Replies from some other instances aren't showing up in the timelines. @BTCKitty appears to have an empty timeline when looking at it locally. Still connecting via Tor here.

if you're using firefox—

- open about:config
- toggle app.normandy.enabled to false

this disables the "random" experiments that mozilla performs on you
(see wiki.mozilla.org/Firefox/Shiel and jeffersonscher.com/sumo/shield for a list)

don't know if this could potentially be targeted to remotely control someone's browser, but I don't like it
