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?
