Turned off Twitter Crossposter.

Friends, please follow me at jon@bitcoinhackers.org rather than here. I'll be concentrating on the technical aspects there.

1/ Looks like many people want to move from Twitter to Mastodon.

Here are some resources to help make the switch:

Official Site: joinmastodon.org/

How does Mastodon work? kevq.uk/how-does-mastodon-work

Mastodon info, including mobile apps: switching.social/ethical-alter

The fediverse transforms the established asset of a large follower count on centralized social media to a potential switching cost liability.

Some other cool alternatives in the fediverse:

Pixelfed: A federated Instagram-like pixelfed.social/

PeerTube: A P2P YouTube-like joinpeertube.org/en/home/

Pleroma: Another federated microblogging galaxy pleroma.social/

Many more here too! fediverse.party/

3/ For what it’s worth, I’m seeing more activity and responses in my fediverse community today than on twitter.

mastodon.social/about is a good place to begin your move.

1/ Twitter friends, a few reasons to move from twitter to the fediverse:

- Non-manipulated feed
- No promoted tweets
- You are not the product
- You can choose a community that works for you or create one
- Less censorship, depending on the community
- Decentralized
- Non-profit

Installed Tootdon for using Mastodon on iOS and seems good so far.

Love the "delete and redraft" toot feature.

TLDR: Don’t wait until lunchtime or the end of the day to commit your progress 😁

Unpopular opinion: If it's too big to throw away, it's too big to commit. Commit small steps continually. You can always reorganise, clean or squash it later.
