Do You Even Toot? – Mastodon for Developers

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.

Round 2

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 nikoheikkila@mastodon.technology which you can also find in my profile. If you need invitations or any help in getting started with Mastodon, let me know!
