Interesting to see people encountering the benefits and downsides of Mastodon in real time. Federation is a huuuuuge advance over resting control with a single billionaire Jack or Zuck - but comes with usability and privacy tradeoffs.

I think Mastodon will be a success for me either way. If it starts to replace Twitter, great. If it stays quiet, it will be like reading a Teju Cole novel: nothing much happens and it is very peaceful.
