It's been almost two years since I started this thread.
Since then, I've found quite a lot of interesting topics and developers to follow. Despite the comment section Mastodon is still thriving and attracting users who wish not to be poisoned by a toxic cloud.
The user experience and federated community spirit of the Mastodon also drove me to quit Twitter. I still do cross-post there using a 3rd party integration bridge but I haven't otherwise felt the need to look back.
How is the general Mastodon appeal after a couple of years? Obviously, it won't kill Twitter, but not every social network need to be a killer of something.
Have you jumped the ship? Are you posting to a well-known instance or running your own?
I am firstname.lastname@example.org which you can also find in my profile. If you need invitations or any help in getting started with Mastodon, let me know!
