However, I think that in our case such a scenario is highly unlikely. First of all, the order of events is reversed--ActivityPub and Mastodon have been built after Twitter, as improvements over Twitter, and the current, not insignificant userbase has specifically left Twitter over bad features, management, or misaligned incentives, so there is essentially no risk of losing that userbase back to Twitter even if it joined the space.

It would make non-Twitter social media providers like Mastodon, Pleroma, Pixelfed and others more competetive, since they offer a better experience not motivated by corporate interests and can explore more sustainable and ethical business models. Twitter adopting ActivityPub would also be incredible validation of everything we've been working towards and lead to more platforms joining the decentralized social web and more exciting and innovative projects being created in this space.

I think Twitter adopting ActivityPub would be a good thing and a victory for the web. Twitter's current lock-in on its users is its strength, and weaking that lock-in by embracing decentralization would remove essentially all network effects-based obstacles to people moving away from it and spreading out in the fediverse.

Facebook has recently admitted that its greatest threat, looking to the future, is federated platforms.

Many federating platforms (like PeerTube, a video sharing software, or WriteFreely, a blogging software) are springing up around the federating system.

Capitalist websites like YouTube, Facebook and Twitter are getting progressively worse in how they act, in their quest for profits.

Meanwhile, the fediverse is only getting stronger, powered by money through voluntary donations and the hard work of thousands of admins.

Federation is a positive path forward for the future of the internet, has liberated people and allowed them to form regenerative communities, and is helping to educate people about alternative ideas and methods to those promoted by capitalist business.

It's really encouraging to see the fediverse doing so well.
