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 just joined. I have a couple questions about Mastodon.

@Gargron what is the purpose of Mastodon? Is it a Twitter alternative? Just FYI I was shut down by Twitter for libertarian anti big government views. I was never vulgar or indecent.

@SJNX You were shut down by Twitter for libertarian anti big government views??? Ah! They should kick off Trump then...😏 En plus, il EST vulgaire et indécent!
