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 Isn't part of Twitter's issue is that there is extremely poor moderation of 'bad behavior' ? I feel like if Mastodon could maintain some rules, they may not have the same issues as a massive site like twitter.

@Unusualjuggernaut @Gargron - Mastodon as a platform has no rules. Each individual node and each individual user has tools to craft their experience as they see fit.


This page describes the instance - wondering what Mastodon is? Check out instead! In essence, Mastodon is a decentralized, open source social network. This is just one part of the network, run by the main developers of the project 🐘 It is not focused on any particular niche interest - everyone is welcome as long as you follow our code of conduct!
