Anyone else on Mastodon? (Becoming the Twitter alternative)Hey everyone! So depending where your head is at about Twitter I highly recommend Mastodon! I’ve been on Twitter for a few months now and only have like 70 or so followers. I joined Mastodon to try it out, wasn’t crazy about it at first, so went back to Twitter. Came back on beginning of November and this month alone built a network of over 400 followers. The social media site is experiencing a boom due to “Twitter Refugees” migrating to the platform. Therefore, if you start an account now, due to the immense traffic and people all starting out new, you’ll likely build a network a LOT faster than Twitter. It’s probably akin to how it was when Twitter started. Mastodon is unique though in that while having a profile on the site gives you access to the site as a whole, to sign up and make a profile you need to choose a “server”/community. And obviously for folks who are LGBTQ+ there’s plenty. @Jordan Miller not sure if you’ve heard of the platform but unlike Twitter it is open source. Meaning you can start your own server (e.g. a Britney Spears server) and you basically build a community within the broader community. And by you being the creator of the server you are the moderator and admin. Which reminds me, a lot of people are leaving Twitter due to moderation becoming looser. Moderation on Mastodon is decent but because it is open source and the entire site is comprised of “communities” created by people, it’s important you choose the right community for you since the moderation is done by that specific community’s admins NOT Mastodon. It’s really diverse. Doesn’t seem to have the same negativity and toxic behaviours as Twitter. They have a bit of a different etiquette and norms. There are no algorithms so everyone tags their posts so they show up in places accordingly. Oh and, there’s no ads! If you’re on there DM me your handle so I can follow you! Mine is @hyouka See ya’ll around!
