2nd time I'm wondering if should set up Wire account here as the cool kids are moving.

But I like the non-commercial ethos of Mastodon (so far) and also it would mean another channel to monitor and maintain. Too many already.


@teller I agree with you on both points. I, too, have been wondering about whether setting up an account for the nonprofit I work for would be a way to help people learn of our work and engage with us. But, I do like the "individual" ethos here right now, and, as you said, too many other channels right now. Still, it's something I will keep monitoring. There may be a point where that makes sense.

@danyork @teller One interesting possibility is setting up (for example) a mastodon.wire.com instance. That way it's clear what toots are official. And you don't have to worry about maybe violating some other instance's rules about advertising. Makes ads less intrusive, more opt-in.

@NfNitLoop @danyork We're trying to keep our core thing the core thing and not host and maintain non-core services ourselves. Good example of this is opting to use Medium for our blog and release notes.

@teller @danyork yeah. Not so much recommending that Wire do that as brainstorming on non-intrusive ways to use Mastodon for commercial purposes in general.

@danyork @teller I would suggest you set them up and monitor for occasions where you can help by answering a question. It's always a good way to communicate, helping others. NOT to announce blog posts, new releases or events, unless asked. /opinion
