Mastodon users, do you actually also use Twitter at the same time?
@boilingsteam I've tried Twitter multiple times, but I've never been a regular user. I've never been a fan of social media, and to be frank, that's still largely the case.
These days, if I sign into my Twitter account,, it's to marvel at how much of a mess I find it to be more than anything else.
Until.the artists I followed from tumble move here (or elsewhere) I'm stuck on Twitter for some things.
There are a few people where it's the simplest way to get in touch with them.
It's not a viable long-term solution, as you're there at someone else's whim, but it'll do for now. :D
@boilingsteam I'm still mostly on Twitter, and use it for marketing... but with the whole Elon Musk situation I want to have an exit strategy.
@boilingsteam I rarely use Twitter officially, but I do use Twitter clients like Fritter. It's a great way to get away from all the garbage drama and recommendation algorithms and just focus on who you follow. I still rarely go there since it's not good for seeing art.
@boilingsteam Exclusive content is important. I think especially leaders should not use both, because people (including me) tend to literally follow the people they want to learn from.
Also, I really value having conversations and getting input in a public space where interaction and expression is not shaped by commercial interests. So here, or on the streets and in cafes :-)
@boilingsteam I mostly use Twitter, haven't found a lot of people who only use Mastodon that I'm following.
@boilingsteam I only use Twitter to tell people who use Twitter that my content is available.
And to yell at services I use because they usually respond faster to tweets then emails.
