weird article on the front page of esquire about twitter vs #mastodon that doesn’t understand even the basic premise of the #fediverse and misses out entirely on the nature of why lots of small self hosted nodes are stronger then one centralized capitalist blob but alas you have to start somewhere. I have a feeling we are gonna get another wave soon. also a little shoutout to #diaspora in there.
The fact that we can't get #Trump out of office with the amount of shit flying his way is so strange to me. 🤔
Trying to figure out how to get people involved with #Mastodon more.
New here? Remember that Twitter is optimized to make you into passive consumers, by en(r/g)aging you with content that you don't choose yourself.
Here, that doesn't happen. But it also means you're responsible to find people to follow.
It will take some work.
If you're willing to put that in, you'll find a wide variety of friendly people that will be happy to have meaningful conversions and laugh and cry together with you.
Start by searching and looking at who other people follow.
