2nd time I'm wondering if should set up Wire account here as the cool kids are moving.
But I like the non-commercial ethos of Mastodon (so far) and also it would mean another channel to monitor and maintain. Too many already.
@teller They're different things, aren't they?
Wire is your direct messaging tool, á la WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger, but secure and valueing your privacy.
Mastodon is your fun soapbox where you get news, ideas and random entertainment from, like Twitter, but without the hatespeech.
@brunoscheele Yeah, I meant more like a brand account here to share feature updates, answer questions. Indeed Wire itself is for non-public conversations.
@teller I like how I misunderstood and was explaining Wire to someone that actually works on it :joy:
At some point those weird aggregrator services will catch on and allow you to crosspost to Mastodon as well. Look forward to seeing some Wire stuff then.
@teller I agree with you on both points. I, too, have been wondering about whether setting up an account for the nonprofit I work for would be a way to help people learn of our work and engage with us. But, I do like the "individual" ethos here right now, and, as you said, too many other channels right now. Still, it's something I will keep monitoring. There may be a point where that makes sense.
