I'm really happy to announce that the company I work for has just publicly opened a #Mastodon instance for all its 5000 employees.
This is the result of an initiative @moritzheiber and I have started a year ago and have pushed through with the help of many other colleagues.

@xuv I'm not sure what I'd post on a social media site run by my employer, tbh.
@xuv Like, I'm not saying "this is bad", I'm just unclear on what the goal is here.
@varx Good question. I see myself w/ others in the company wanting to provide that space for colleagues to use. I believe in decentralized communication networks and I see a potential for professionals to use that for whatever they see fit. I think the company I work for has the kind of people and mindset to put this to good use. I personally think the things I would post there would be different from the things I post here with some overlap, for sure. I'm interested in exploring that difference
@bhuvan wow! This is great news!
I already have my personal account on another instance which I think I should still keep since this one requires an Okta login.
I'm a bit puzzled on why I got an _1 appended to my handle though.
