People were worried when Mastodon went from 20,000 to 500,000 people too. I don't see why you would think 1mil -> 2mil to be any different. I really don't agree with the comments that suggest that Mastodon shouldn't grow.

A lot of folks' fear is that when Mastodon grows it'll absorb bad people. I'm gonna say this. I think even if Mastodon literally grows to the size of current Twitter, the world will be better off overall just because of how Mastodon is structured and what values it represents and what tools it provides for dealing with those problems.

@Gargron I think as a community we should acknowledge their fear and make sure they feel heard. That is fundamentally what twitter has failed to do.

From a technical perspective we're not worried about shitlords ruining it but that doesn't mean that people who were traumatized on twitter share our confidence that the new system will protect them.


@foozmeat It's not twitter users who express that sentiment.
