I guess maybe I'm thinking too deep into it. All these communists complaining that Twitter isn't for us still refuse to give Mastodon a chance. Like... Bruh we're trying something new and it could work. You gotta take that chance.

Mastodon could flop, Mastodon could be bigger than Twitter, we don't know. But you damn sure aint gone know if you don't try it.

Most of this is coming from people just not wanting to lose their huge following on Twitter.

You're used to having 10,000+ followers and you don't want to give that up.

@AquaMarching I already like my 12 followers here better than my 4500 there, lol

And yes I also understand a lot of our friends are on Twitter and there's a good chance they won't even attempt Mastodon either.

@AquaMarching I have spent over a year on Diaspora, a dentralized network famed from being a more privacy aware Facebook, and it has been there longer than I. Can it dry out, yeah, it has, but those coders and programmers that hosted the open source servers, they keep it alive, because cells that are there want it to live. can it be bigger? Yes, but no cell is dominating another. and i never felt dominated. But all this is determined by the users, its always about them

@AquaMarching mastodon won't flop. This irritates me when I hear this. It was a thriving community and it doesn't need to be a viable alternative to twitter for it to not "flop" because it's its own thing.
