@Gargron does helldude count
@mythros I'm in an academic meeting. No, helldude does not count.
@Gargron there are at least 2 french politicians and few french journalists...
@Gargron yes of course there are some
That question you where posed, is it about comparing mastodon with twitter?
@Gargron Tommy wiseau
@Gargron realtoddhoward - DSA leader
@gargron obligatory Lance Udanoff mention
@gordon He's not active
@Gargron watching this thread for the follow suggestions. Thanks for putting the question out there!
@Gargron so @occrp has already been mentioned in this thread, but an additional piece of context is that we now have a Mastodon/Fediverse button amongst social media buttons on our website and Mastodon/Fediverse is considered an official channel of communication, just like birdsite or any other social media.
@Gargron Hi, I'm a journalist.
That might look like the attached image...
Sorry, couldn't resist.

@Gargron There's Sarah Jeong but she last posted an Awoo on Mastodon like some months ago... August 2018 to be more precise...
@Gargron And also I guess I'm rather active in Mastodon but I haven't been a journalist since end of March last year...
@Gargron I hope not. When journalists, politicians and marketeers come to Mastodon, then I fear the same will happen as on Twitter. Streams of hate and negativity all day long.
