hi guys i'm hoping to write another piece about mastodon, a sort of wrap-up for my experiment a few weeks ago where i tried to replace twitter with masto.
i'd love to to interview a bunch of you guys? looking for old users and new users alike
following up with as many of you as i can but i have to log off now so i can eat. my email is email@example.com if you want to reach out directly!
@sarahjeong I'm happy to be interviewed, if you need me. :)
@noelle would love to have you! my email is firstname.lastname@example.org — lmk how's best to talk
@sarahjeong ping me (here from 3 April)
@sarahjeong i'd be willing to answer a few questions, i've pretty much entirely moved onto mastodon and have been running an instance for 3 weeks (with the tech & moderation issues that entails)
@chr amazing! does email work? mine is email@example.com
@sarahjeong Hi. I joined up in the wake of your article. I still use Twitter, but substantially less.
@sarahjeong I'd love to chat about this stuff - I've been on Masto since november and I have a longstanding interest/involvement with online communities and their care feeding (also hi fellow Vice contributor)
@sarahjeong I've been around since late december, and did the CW stuff / boost spin animation
@sarahjeong heya, I'm a new user!
@sarahjeong i joined the same day you did i think (i think me following you is in the 2nd screenshot of your first article?) and now i'm hosting 3 instances and working on the code
@sarahjeong Sure. Been around for a couple of weeks.
Old hand in running free internet services for the greater good though.
@sarahjeong I have a twitter account, but I'm not an active user. Joined mastodon by chance at the end of Nov, liked it and stayed.
@sarahjeong I'd be down!
@sarahjeong new user here, replacing twitter with mastodon because I believe in the free software philosophy. let me know if that's a perspective you're interested in!
@sarahjeong happy to help! Count me in :)
@sarahjeong I'm happy to answer any questions you might have, as a single-user self-hosted instance tooter. My email is firstname.lastname@example.org.
@sarahjeong I can answer some questions :)
Been around since November, running my own semi faulty instance, and supporting Gargron through patreon for a couple of months I think.
@sarahjeong i've been here for about 3 weeks now, and would be happy to say words if you need more people to say words
@sarahjeong People talk about nothing but mastodon here : - /
@sarahjeong I run an instance (a bit under 2 weeks ago), have opinions, and have never really been into social media until now. Feel free to hit me up here or email email@example.com
@sarahjeong Not sure if I'm what you're looking for but I'm using Masto to share my fledgeling music and make relationships with other musicians.
@sarahjeong hey there! We met at XOXO briefly. I've been a user for about a month, and I run 2-and-a-half instances, including this one, a themed instance mostly for SFF writers, and a locked-down, private instance for a community that wanted more privacy.
Happy to chat about my experiences on both sides of the admin gate.
@sarahjeong Are you interested in instance owners or users?
@Elucidating looking for a wide range
@sarahjeong I volunteer as tribute, if you're still looking.
@sarahjeong I'm a fairly new user but I'd be happy to participate if I had something to offer the project.
@sarahjeong I'd be down if you need any more people. Been here for a while and on awoo since it started.
@lauraritchie @sarahjeong @ShorterPearson @Tdorey Same. I'm watching the changes thinking that all communities shift in this way. So we're getting to a point where mastodon the platform and mastodon the community have to part. One stabilises as the other changes.
The difference with Twitter is that it has a third dimension: Twitter the corporation. So when we say "Twitter does this or that", we might well mean the company.
@katebowles @Tdorey @sarahjeong @lauraritchie I'm honestly only now understanding how deeply the queer community needed and used the nature of Mastodon's platform and its disconnection from corporate structures. So I am starting to understand that level of disenchantment that comes from not having their place in the community acknowledged, even as I don't feel that disenchantment because Mastodon was far more quiet for me and if anything I'm avoiding that type of acknowledgement.
@sarahjeong Sure, I can do you for
@sarahjeong o/ im a toot.cat mod
@sarahjeong It is very different. My twitter timeline is with more established people, more announcement, less opinion. Mastodon allows for richer exchanges
@sarahjeong Happy to help, if only to prove to a friend that there's something here (he's a big fan of yours)
@sarahjeong i can give you a list of russian trolls on mastodon
