Once we settle down with low or minimal trolls, I want to have serious crowd sourcing ideas on how to defeat the fascist fucks

Mastodon is not Twitter
BUT THIS ALONE WILL NOT HELP...
...if you are still tangled in a Twitter-mindset!!

Are you still searching for the Trending Topics that will impose to everyone what is the thing about whom you "must" talk today?

Are you searching for "people to follow" instead of "people to interact with"?

Are you still planning time wasting things like hashtag wars instead of doing something real?

Are you searching for emotional and social gratifications by the number of retweets you received?

Are you still judging a post by the number of likes that received?

Are you still writing '"cool lines posts" for obtaining likes insted of writing interesting posts that stimulates discussion and interaction?

If so, pkease pay attention: there is still much Twitter INSIDE YOU.

(It takes some time to heal 😉)

All the Mastodon Instances that together form the entire 'Mastodon Galaxy' are part of something much bigger called the #Fediverse.

Apart of Mastodon there are many other free platforms. Some of them, like #Pleroma or #Misskey are also similsr to Twitter but others are very diffetent.

#PixelFed is similar to Instagram
#PeerTube is similar to Youtube
#Friendica is similar to Facebook
#FunkWhale is sumilar ti Soundcloud
#Writely and #Plume are blogging platforms
#Hubzilla is a powerful.multi-functional platform
And there are more...

All of them, like Mastodon don't have a unique central server but are a 'Galaxy' of many Instances.

You can choose between different PixelFed Instances and so on...

But ALL these platforms ('Galaxies') interact with each other forming the Fediverse.

What does that mean?

welcome fellows and comrades from #india

the typical profanity in #italy is "#mannaggia i #marò", which directly translates as "blame the riflemen of the Italian navy"

this is explicitly made in solidarity with #kerala fishermen (and their family) who were killed by Italian marò

This whole boycotting twitter, looking for an alternative, trying it out, convincing other people to come and network here.
This is what Ravish Kumar meant when he said, “It is possible that they may lose the battle. But sometimes resistance is not a matter of choice. Not all battles are fought for victory. Some are fought simply to tell the world that someone was there on the battlefield.”

Here we all are, Mastodon. Seeking respect for views government dislikes and swift takedowns of actual hate speech.

Once upon a time, there was a very powerful bird. So powerful, that it silenced the voices of people who didn’t agree with it. And then an elephant stomped on it.

Hello the India I love. So good to be in a space without the nazis.
