I try to be the change I want to see in the world, but I spend a few months here and have like 2 interactions a day with people I know and like (at least compared to Twitter where I have dozens of interactions a day with people I know and like). Most of the people I interact with on Mastodon seem cool but I'm in the "getting to know you" phase. My best friend isn't here. My husband isn't here (he tried).
@darius the amount of value you build up in a social network is always super under rated and not very portable. It took years of sort of using twitter before I found the right group of accounts to follow to make it a daily feed for me.
Follow friends and discover new ones. Publish anything you want: links, pictures, text, video. This server is run by the main developers of the Mastodon project. Everyone is welcome as long as you follow our code of conduct!
