Clearly there's a new wave of people moving to Mastodon. Lots of pundits wrote it off as irrelevant when the first wave of people switched and found it lacking.

But unlike centralized, for-profit startups, Masto doesn't require constant growth and capital to stay alive. It doesn't require one big wave, because it can survive and grow through multiple small ones.

@VamptVo I wonder if today's Women's Boycott of Twitter will bring some new voices our way.

@Nezchan @VamptVo Nothing will happen. The amount of people boycotting most likely represent less than 1% of the female Twitter users.

@Nezchan @VamptVo male boycotter here. I uninstalled that other app this morning. Been contemplating it for a few weeks, honestly. It's gotten so darn toxic over there.. This is my first post here, but I look forward to exploring this community further. Based on the terms of service alone, I think I'm going to like it.

@ILiveWithMyDad @VamptVo Welcome aboard! Hope you enjoy your experience.

My problem with leaving Birbsite entirely is the fact that there are still a lot of important women's voices, activists of various sorts, PoC folks and artists that I follow that haven't jumped ship, at least not yet. I don't want to sacrifice those folks as much as I wish they'd sign up too.

@Nezchan @ILiveWithMyDad I highly recommend Twidere and similar apps that allow cross-posting. It's helped me maintain both of my profiles without too much extra effort.
