Hmm, is it just me or are a lot of people joining Mastodon right now? Did something happen?
@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 we aré people from venezuela pro goverment ! To support the president Nicolás Maduro and twitter close aré account
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.
