That said, a centralized alternative to twitter would still be pretty nice, I don't think it has to be decentralized to be good. Whatever's going to win in the end, it's probably going to suck anyway. Let's hope it sucks the least amount possible.

Out of all the complaints I'm seeing about mastodon, the only real thing I agree with is.. it's confusing.

Nobody seems to understand how it works, I have to explain it 3 times before people understand that all instances can talk to each other, they have their own rules etc.

The best comparison I have is "it's like choosing an e-mail provider" which is conceptually similar but definitely not the same thing

But you know.. what's the alternative to birdsite owned by a cr*ptobro?

listen, i'm glad everyone is here/back but platform metacommentary alone won't be enough to make this stick. you need to start posting inane nonsense

what did you eat today. did you see any cool bugs

@welshpixie Oh, I guess it's a known issue currently, sorry for the ping! Hopefully it's fixed soon 🤞

Looking to follow music people on Mastodon, are there any good hashtags? 👀

Maybe 2023 will once again be the year of self-hosting 🤔

Woah I guess the primary Mastodon instance is down. That's .. maybe a good sign? But bad timing

I love Mastodon, it's my favorite place to talk about how bad Twitter is.

Guy with stupid face taking over bird site so hi I'm checking in again here whatsup

At least we don't have nft avatar frames on mastodon.. hi just checking in 👋

I forgot Mastodon existed until someone on twitter mentioned it oops hi hello toots

Do you remember? The 21st night September? 💃

I made a hardstyle bootleg. You can only boost it today. It's the law.

Byyyy the way. I'm releasing my first ever commercial music single next week! 👀 🎉

Presaves VERY much appreciated. ❤️

I've been watching the IT Crowd lately, so naturally I had to mess with the theme song..
