Starting to think they do more harm than good, at least when the direction is twitter->mastodon. Yeah it lets twitter folks try mastodon without committment, but that lack of committment is also a problem. It also lets a lot of twitter bs seep into the fediverse.
@brennen@Gargron I don't disagree, and think it is a legit concern. Otoh, Twitter BS has literally seeped into the US federal government and basically every other institution on the planet. Keeping it out is a Hard Problem.
