Which instances are you on? I need some ideas.
Are people cross-posting to Twitter whilst trying to improve awareness? I'd like to make this my primary point of entry but conscious of engagement.
Getting some hashtags in my profile description to aid discovery of like-minded people. Is this a thing or are there better ways?
@Gargron Excellent idea! I'd love to share something like this with my networks to emphasise the importance of Mastodon despite how complex it might seem. Maybe elaborate a bit more about decentralisation using the email metaphor, emphasising the importance of it being built on standard established protocols the Internet was originally created with?
Seeing as Mastodon allows for niche communities, is there an appetite for a web-based instance?
The ability to self-host Mastodon instances combined with the new proliferation of city-based TLDs enables "local microblogging", eg. Mastodon.boston. I wonder if it would catch on...
With Twitter’s endless contentious decisions of late (certain megalomaniacs such as Trump and Weinsten to name a few), isn’t it about time we invest a bit more effort into alternatives like Mastodon? It obviously needs press/celebrity buy-in but I expect an exodus is around the corner.
This seriously needs some sort of an app for convenience - that's how Twitter rolled out to the masses so well with endless integrations and third party solutions.
