It's so beautiful to see masses of people switch to Mastodon / the fediverse. Big hope feels.

@Gargron okai temme... where do u get the name mastodon and toot

@DILIPDRAVID The name Mastodon comes from a prehistoric animal, which is a fluffy elephant essentially. There is a band called Mastodon which is where I learned about this animal from.

The word toot comes from the Mastodon community. There was a long period when things were called just "publish" and "status" and people were coming up with different things to call them.

@Gargron @DILIPDRAVID - good to know and thank you for sharing . Do you ever see becoming someday 馃悩

@vijaya @DILIPDRAVID No, because of association with a certain president 馃槮
