HEY HEY FRENZ on mastodon.social! You may want to MOVE to a new instance, very soon.

Why? :sealion:

Mastodon is a bunch of islands that can talk to each other. The smaller and more spread out we are, the easier things are to moderate. Horizontal scaling FTW!

All of you who fled that one site 🐤 ended up at mastodon.social for likely a few reasons. It was obvious, it was big, and it's where you saw a bunch of folks going.

But it has a long history of being poorly moderated, which means a LOT of instances are silencing or blocking it. Which means you're on the big island that SEEMS like it's "where everyone is", but in fact, it's a giant island unto itself (momentarily trending toward turning into a post-bird-site echo chamber), and huge swaths of the Fediverse don't talk to it, or even see it.

If you want the quality of interaction (and moderation!) Mastodon is known for, move thy funky buns to a smaller instance of cool folks you enjoy. :blobcatrainbow:

Ok #mastodon, let’s show our true colors.

Reblog this if you’re a champion of the Oxford comma.

We’re officially friends.

PSA - with the tsunami of people signing up at #mastodon instances all over the #fediverse, things will be a bit sluggish, federation will be slow and local outages will happen. Rest assured that admins everywhere are working hard to scale their instances with the demand. But be forgiving, too. This is the biggest wave I’ve seen in my many years on the fediverse.

It's completely valid to mourn Twitter because it has been good for many things. But unfortunately, it also played a massive role in cyber-enabled harrassment and influence campaigns along with the proliferation of disinformation. None of its stakeholders showed a more interested efforts and political will to address these problems meaningfully, which were facilitated by its RT and quote RT functions. It deserves to be dismantled.

I just suspended two accounts from Car Companies that have registered on website boy's instance.

If you see more Corporations that are responsible for accelerating global climate change joining the fediverse, please join me in pointing a ban hammer at them.

Judging social media sites by how well they allow you to realize Graeber and Wengrow's 3 neolithic freedoms:

(1) the freedom to move away or relocate from one’s surroundings
(2) the freedom to ignore or disobey commands issued by others
(3) the freedom to shape entirely new social realities, or shift back and forth between different ones

It is profoundly intellectually lazy and offensive to the soul to think that the sum total of human expression could ever be mediated by any single entity.

I built the foundations of Twitter with my bare hands and watched in awe and sadness as it grew into a cynical temple of ego.

I delight in its destruction.
We're better off here.

This is basically how it works:
Boosts follow the path of a normal post.
If you boost something it goes to your followers, which always implies you endorse it.
Favorites do nothing except notify the original poster that you liked it.
There are no quotes, because they inevitably lead to antisocial behavior.
Content warnings are a thing - use them.

Norms here might be a bit strange. It's not twitter, it's something else. Look around and get a feel for it. There were people here long before you.

One thing that's getting a little lost in this mix, is that some of the people desperately holding on at Twitter are because they are trapped by either healthcare or visas.

That there are systemic traps that trap workers in America so they feel unable to move freely to new employers who want them and would have better pay or conditions is *nuts* and deserves a lot more attention than it gets.

Which browser do you use?
