Hi all. My name's Chris Were and I work as a reporter at the Monmouthshire Beacon.
I'm not new to the #Fediverse but I thought I'd join Toot.Wales since it's a bit more relevant to what I do and looks like a really fun place to be.
I'm looking forward to getting to know you all.
@ChrisWere Chris Were? With all your accounts, it's more like Chris Where!
@ChrisWere WHAT! You got hired as a reporter! That's AWESOME! Can't wait to see the stuff.
Also toot.wales should have been a obvious instance hahahh
Will the articles or what you make be shared here?
@ChrisTalleras Yeah, it's friggin awesome, I'll be sure to post what I write here.
@Clipsey Hello 👋

@ChrisWere Looking forward to the posts
@Christian I believe it says: "not new". lol
Woops, sorry, I must've screwed my eyeballs in upside down today lol
@ChrisWere Hi Chris, welcome to the instance! Thanks for joining us here, anything you need let me know.
@tooter Thanks for the warm welcome. I do have one question. Does this instance have a Patreon?
@ChrisWere For now no, we have a charitable non-profit that "owns" the instance and we are funded at least through the end of this year, we won't be accepting donations until we absolutely need them.
@tooter Nice! That's pretty awesome.
@ChrisWere welcome man!
@ChrisWere So, what was the determination, is this going to be a twitter bridge, or an account unto itself?
@murph Maybe both, probably closer to the latter. I haven't worked that part out fully yet, I think I'll work it out as I go.
@ChrisWere That's great. We could really do with some good content here, and Tŵt has such potential for Cymru.
@AngharadHafod Thanks. I don't suppose you know if there's a keyboard combo for the ŵ character?
@ChrisWere On Android, it's available via long hold on the w key to me. As a Linux desktop user, I have it via the compose key. M$ alt code? I wouldn't know, but I seem to remember that 373-376 are the html entity codes for the Welsh letters. That might work with alt.
