I think it’s important to quit framing Mastodon as a Twitter replacement. They both have different uses!
Mastodon’s where you go to build/find community in a decentralized space, while Twitter’s where you go to emulate the feeling of sticking your head into a boiling vat of cooking oil.
@honestlyjon To me it is a bit like the comparison of Facebook and Diaspora*. The one is rather the commercial shit, where you will see everyone and are seen by everyone, whilst the other is the kitchenparty, where you meet interesting people to share ideas and thoughts with.
