FYI it looks like registrations to the mastodon.social instance have been temporarily closed https://mastodon.social/media/VincNfyscIvGcT8JzRw
@schlink Yes, he mentioned it on his TL earlier, other big instances should follow soon:
@anarschtroumpf :thumbsup: I boosted him. I logged out mostly to see what the sign up screen looked like, and thought others would be curious.
I guess it's one way to promote decentralization!
@lmorchard yep, I boosted. Just wanted to see for myself what all the Verge readers were going to be greeted with (http://www.theverge.com/2017/4/4/15177856/mastodon-social-network-twitter-clone?utm_campaign=caseynewton&utm_content=chorus&utm_medium=social&utm_source=twitter )
@schlink I wanted to make a "fake news" joke, but I can't make it funny. Honestly it's nice to see you here :grin:
@lambadalambda I was thinking the same thing. "rebuild twitter from scratch" LOLOL I built an app 7 years ago using pretty much the exact federated protocols
I registered on an other instance...
@claudegohier yep, I think you chose well!
How is the lag currently? Thinking of slowly switching...
