What other microblogging platforms /other/ than Mastodon and Twitter are there?
#Plume as the still in development but already very nice federated blogging (micro or not) platform,
#Pleroma as alternative to Mastodon, yet still federated with it and the rest of the Fediverse;
#Pixelfed as the soon to be federated alternative to Instagram, which is what I used to microblog before, along with others.
@dredmorbius There's also Diaspora, of course!
@eloisa Diaspora is more a social network / lightweight blog platform.
It doesn't have the character limits of Twitter / Mastodon, and has formatting, but misses tags, user-specific / blog-specific search, and some other bits.
@eloisa I think I consider Plume a blogging, not microblogging, platform.
@dredmorbius yes, the focus is more on the long-form however it can be both.
Especially since we thread toots or tweets and they end up long-form as well, if we got by word count.
@dredmorbius Ah! Gotcha! :)
@clacke I tend to consider microblogging some small character count.
If you tell me I can't blog more than a few MB of text, I'm going to get frustrated, eventually.
@dredmorbius GNU Social federates with Mastodon and Pleroma, and runs on shared hosting rather than needing the more techy requirements of everything else.
@clacke Thanks. That's what I was thinking.
What kind of IP address exposure does that entail? Is ther a concept of relaying through a hub?
@dredmorbius GNU Social
Suspect they just need to patch up latest version but they are too busy surfing and reading.
Generalistic and moderated instance.
