mastodon is written in ruby, which is supposedly a garbage collecting language, and yet my toots pass through unscathed

@lynnesbian Doesn't that mean your mastodon actually collects garbage thus fulfilling it's role?

@lynnesbian yup that's what it's supposed to do, pick up our toots and collect them

@lynnesbian Your posts have too many strong references between them.

@lynnesbian this explains so much about my relationship to this web site

@lynnesbian And my toots don't even come from a trunk.

Example: 💩

Yeah, well, Twitter is written (largely) in Scala and yet isn't even a little bit functional so ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

@lynnesbian no it means it's a language that is garbage at collecting, which explains it
