Mastodon is on XKCD! (And the misspelling was corrected!)

@Gargron Keep us updated on the merge with LinkedIn.

@Gargron this is sadly probably the thing that will outlive mastodon... 1000 years from now when everyone has forgotten about the fediverse you know someone has a floating orb archive of XKCD somewhere on their solarpunk island...

@wakest @Gargron And no one will understand the language, let alone the comic. AIs of the time included.

@Snarky @Gargron like most 'valuable' things in museum. It will be saved only because it was loved in its time by people with 'power'

@Gargron Oh wait the misspelling wasn't intentional? I thought it was poking at the people misspelling it...

@gaditb @gargron yea I thought it was a joke too, I mean to misspell it twice

@Gargron Petition to rename Mastodon to Mastadon, but only until the xkcd gets changed back!

@gargron cool maybe one day he’ll also treat the fediverse with more than condescension

@gargron this comic is using us as a joke and perpetuates the perceived inevitability of centralized social media, imo

As it’s primarily been. And I’m annoyed with it

@matilde Ah i see. Well as they say, first they laugh at you. This is a big win. In this comic we are literally on the same level as LinkedIn, a multimillion company

@Gargron That's the reason I joined 😂

@Gargron woah, im def on the last stage in the hover text.

@Gargron xkcd always goes directly to the heart of the matter. There is great confusion out there right now about social networks. People more and more realize the problem of centralized networks but the alternatives are not yet really visible to the majority

@Gargron never heard of mastodon until XKCD. It’s also how I discovered kerbal space program!

@Gargron Congratulations. For getting it corrected.
