After reading more, I feel that Mastodon’s regulation is simply problematic in different ways than Twitter.
I also regret not having done more research around instances.
Mastodon overwhelms me.
@Tatianamac it's definitely not perfect. But if you find a community that fits your needs it'd be a better experience.
@Tatianamac I'd highly recommend playvicious.social to you!
@Tatianamac what kind of problematic stuff did you find with Mastodon? I've found myself less overwhelmed here. I felt like twitter was a firehose each morning, while this is like sipping water in over a day.
The way in which your information can extend beyond your instance, so that even private info can be shared with adjustments to code.
The idea of being easily impersonated.
The problematic WM who run Mastodon.
This thread helped me to understand;
@moiety @Tatianamac I think that's the end effect for me also. So far, it's happier. Maybe because it isn't yet a place filled with reports of the worst things happening, and people aggressively pushing their personal brand. I've no doubt that will change, but I'm hoping Mastodon will be able to cope with the change, unlike twitter that is absolutely rigid and inflexible.
And also, I don’t feel safe posting here what I post on Twitter, which is important to me. It feels like there isn’t tolerance for “real talk;” or at least my brand of it.
Haven’t checked these, but they might be more diverse: https://kitty.town/@GinnyMcQueen/100566094103717488
@Tatianamac The proposed solution to every Mastodon problem is "run your own instance, and make it work however you like".
I understand why techies like this approach: it gives them all the power and none of the responsibility.
