So, has anyone in #linguistics started work on an oral history of people saying birdsite/birdworld on here or were you all waiting for an internet linguist to take up residence?

Please @ me with your theories/stories!
@gretchenmcc I'm not a linguistic, but I've witnessed "birdsite" first used in my timeline as a euphemism for one centralised network specifically because the instances these people were on discouraged any mention of the said network. Something about keeping their culture away from the fediverse or stuff.
I've never been to Twitter so I wouldn't know what they're running away from exactly :-).
