I signed up for Mastodon. I’m using https://masto.themimitoof.fr as my instance. It looks interesting so far, and there seems to be a massive flood of people adopting it. It looks like it might actually manage to dethrone twitter through the simple promise of a chronological timeline and no ads. We’ll see how it goes, right now, of course, it has no revenue stream, relying entirely on donations and people hosting their own instances (which I’m thinking of doing). It’s an amazing idea, a radically decentralized open source network with all instances being tied together.
Anyway, I’m still going to post my new posts to both facebook and twitter, mostly because that requires literally zero effort on my part (it’s pre-configured via a plugin – I publish and both sites get updated) but I think I like Mastodon much better.
