Hmm, is it just me or are a lot of people joining Mastodon right now? Did something happen?
@Gargron I hear there's this thing where they're making people stay in their homes a lot...
@Gargron i pushed an update to my app on google play so people receive push notifications

@Gargron people are getting fed up with Twitter
@GreenEggs Amen! Their AI drives me freaking crazy.
@Gargron seems to be a lot of Venezuelans coming this way
@williamgarcia I love your profile. Communicators always ring my bell 🔔
@Gargron We are from Venezuela. Twitter censures our reality. We believe in Mastodon.
@Gargron An epidemic sir.
@Gargron I just like the band tbh.
@Gargron It either mastodid or it mastodidn't
@Gargron Facebook exodus. Coronavirus means they sent home office staff and handed moderation over to bots. Except the bots suck at it and are censoring all kinds of stuff that's not actually against TOS. People have been looking for new platforms.
@salimrezanewton @Gargron @lubrio Twitter once banned me October 1, 2017 https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Catalonia#Independence_movement
Other times was momentaneus ban.
@Gargron mostly of people are Venezuelans like me, Twitter is sanctioning Venezuelan accounts because of the US Sanctions over our country.
@Gargron Perhaps it's some combination of everyone being isolated due to coronavirus, but also realizing that twitter is very depressing and alienating as a result of increased exposure to it, and looking for alternatives?
@Gargron how do we know the number of active users in this app?
Twitter shadow banned mastodon

Yeah — Twitter, THAT'S what happened. It's getting noisier and more toxic by the day. We're being overrun by Party-sponsored trolls and bots, fascist howlers, brainless show-biz celebrities and mainstream media hacks dropping shit-takes.
I've been evangelizing for Mastodon in "Birdland" every chance I get, every time a comrade or important dissident voice is restricted or silenced by Twitter.
