Spent a whole hour talking in therapy about how my first instinct is to hide and be invisible when what I really want is to feel seen. “Yeah that’s a hard question; how do you hide and be seen at the same time?” Well if I knew that I wouldn’t be here would I

Me on Twitter: Ugh who are all these people following me, stahp

Me on Mastodon: WHERE IS EVERYONE, BE MY FRIEND

Well, I guess Mastodon isn't immune to controversy.

If you've switched from Twitter to Mastodon and want to be interviewed for a story, lmk! (DM or replies)

Are there any other famous / well-known folks who made the jump from Twitter to Mastodon (aside from Wil)? Trying to see if I can interview folks for a story. Thanks!

So, does boosting / favoriting a post that's banned from your instance get you banned as well? For example, mastodon.cloud doesn't appear to allow nudity (which... I don't really agree with? but then I'm also not going to be posting nudes; it's just a policy that I find to be a little silly considering that you can hide things with Show More). So if I happen to "boost" a toot with a nude photo or link in it, am I a candidate for banning as well?

Very curious about all of this. Thoughts?

Just blocked and reported an account on Mastodon! Aw, it really is a modern social network after all

It's pretty impressive this works as well as it does but it definitely has some odd quirks.

Viewing someone's profile I only see who they follow on my instance? Following in general is not … easy

I’ll know Mastodon has made it when darth joins

Did you know that you don't need to use link shorteners (bit.ly, etc.) on Mastodon? All links, no matter how long, only count for 23 characters against your 500 limit!

(And since link shorteners are bad for user experience and break the web, there's almost no good reason to use 'em! 😄)

Every time I find someone I know on Mastodon through search, I feel like I've solved a complicated puzzle

Guys I think I forgot how to social network

So what’s Mastodon’s version of subtweeting? Subtooting?

I am extremely tired. But I need to be awake for the next 4 hours. 😬

I've heard people say that one of the nice things about Mastodon is that it feels like the old days of Twitter. While that's nice, the thing that made Twitter a thing was that it blew up, so much so that even people who aren't really into the whole tech thing were on Twitter. That is honestly what I think a new social network needs: It can't just be for nerds or in-the-know people. It needs to be for the "normals" too.

Hallo, seeing if there's anyone still here

Interesting that you can have the same name but in different instances. Will it be like Ricks and Morties in different dimensions? Is there a council of Nicoles?

This feels like when I joined a public BBS in 1997
