A lot of my friends on Twitter seem to have a deep hatred of Mastodon, and I'm trying to figure out why. I can certainly understand just not wanting to use Mastodon, Lord knows, I'm here very rarely myself, but I don't understand the vitriol against it.


@twylo I think a lot of it is just a misunderstanding of the idea of instances. I think you can see that with thr recent upflow in New users on Mastodon.social in combination of the "official" Mastodon app on the Playstore.

I tried like 10 years ago to sign up for identi.ca and later some pump.io instance, but I never stuck to it because I didn't really get it even though I am a GNU nerd. I gave up Facebook for lent which gave me 40 days to "get it" & since Easter I have not really been back
