I agree with this. Average user wants to subscribe without too much complications. The more they've to stop and understand what to do the less opportunity we have they will subscribe to #Mastodon.
Remember this old mantra: "keep it simple stupid"
.@Gargron i don't think using mastodon or twitter has to be one or the other. i think trying to argue against twitter use because of heinous behavior (users or administration) is missing the point. mastodon is superior in said capacities, but it is absolutely a *different* project, with a different network(s), & different reasons to use it. they're not providing the same service, so it's not a case of choosing one over the other… the fight to convert users is missing the point.
i was pretty disgusted with some of the recent rhetoric on twitter, & the administrations selective censorship to some related posts underscores twitter's unfair & elitest leanings. it's not a healthy environment, it's full of abusive behavior (both from users & by the company itself), & the situation there is becoming progressively worse as the attitudes & rules are perpetuated while also being modified to allow for more exploitation of the user. it's not a pretty sight; it's not a pretty site.
