@cassidyjames It's nice. I've chatted with and followed some people after searching some hashtags and it's been rewarding.
@cassidyjames On the fediverse, it *feels* more diverse and more aware of others' needs. Perhaps simply having CWs (content warnings), the ability to mark things as NSFW, and accessibility text turned on by default for images (unlike Twitter, where it's opt-in) helps.
I'm not sure if the baked-in diverse backgrounds and courtesy of the fediverse is the features, the people who adopted Mastodon and other fediverse software, and/or me being more aware of who I'm adding here.
