@keli really? Did they tell you w/c steps they find more complex? It seems that the sign up process for twitter and mastodon both accept the same fields - username, email, password (except Twitter has an option to use phone instead of email). If you have specific feedback on how the UI/UX could be improved to make this easier, sending suggestions to the devs might help
@keli I wonder if its because twitter lets you create the account without immediately verifying your email/phone, but that seems less secure though (mastodon asks you to check your email for verification right after signup). well, maybe you can convince some of your more tech-savvy friends to join first?
