I'm about to make a research about #mastodon and it's community to also find out what should be improved.
It will basicly be a quantitative research.
What would you like to know from mastodons community, if there's anything?
Here're some questions I had in mind:
- why did you joined mastodon?
- are you thinking to switch back to twitter?
- in which way do you contribute to mastodon?
- In which way do you think of contributing in the future?
For you to consider, since you were kind enough to ask:
Q: If you are on both Mastodon and Twitter, how have you shaped your digital identity for each space? Same or different?
Thx (and OK if you don't use it)
1. Because it sounded awesome, any alternative to a corporate thing I uses gets me interested. I'd prefer I use as few corporate things as possible
2. Not if I can avoid it.
3. I mean toot-wised I've made short little comments, shared #videos and #photos and some #poetry
4. everything I just said in 3. but also probably money.
@paulfree14 in order:
- i saw mention of it and liked the federated & AGPL aspects
- twitter is pretty much dead to me (but i gave up a while ago)
- i support a few instance admins on patreon
- it's possible that i'll spend development time on the project or related code
Twitter was fun for a while, but twitter seems to be infected by a lot of the same problems of any capitalist speech platform (eg - hierarchy of voices, pay for speech, accumulation of followers and views as power, etc.) The word limit is a little constricting too. And many people are very harsh.
I go back to sometimes check on twitter, but I'm trying to not rt or tweet. Discussion seems healthier here
Not as much as I should. I do watch the issues list. I haven't put anything formal into it though. I've thumbs-up'd some issues on github I think are important.
At some point it would be fun to code some enhancements if I ever get the time. Fundamentally I think the most important thing is to get the open social networks (diaspora/gnu social/etc) all integrated together
@paulfree14 might be interesting to see how many currently use both Twitter and Masto. And whether there’s a different use case for each platform. Not everyone will have completely abandoned the bird site yet, I’d imagine.
