Regarding Google linking Chrome's sign-in state with folks' Google sign-in state: This was the RIGHT move for MOST people. Having two sign-in states was THE thing that confused people about Chrome.

It's bad for techies & privacy hawks. But for everyone else it's a usability win.

Found an interesting spam/scam scheme today:
- Attacker posts their link that redirects to a legit news article
- Twitter resolves the redirect to news article
- Twitter hides link from Tweet and displays Twitter Card with news domain
- Attacker changes redirect to spam site

The Tweet now displays a legit looking Twitter Card with the news website domain, but actually goes to the scammer.

I blocked my first account on mastodon.
