Starting with reports from @chad (Mastodon Canada), @nova (Hachyderm), and @aurynn (Cloud Island, New Zealand).

Learning lots. If you know of other reports, please @-tag me and I'll add them to the list. is not meant for general personal accounts, there are already two directories for them at and

I'm trying to build lists of accounts that focus on specific topics.

Blogpocket Show (episodio especial): La crisis de Twitter

Episodio especial de Blogpocket Show,  dedicada a la crisis de Twitter.

#live #webshow

The four stages of Mastodon user:
* what’s a Mastodon
* I feel lost and alone how does this work
* oh wow this is actually pretty cool
* I’m an instance admin now

A VERY good question:

"Twitter’s potential collapse could wipe out vast records of recent human history

What happens when the world’s knowledge is held in a quasi-public square owned by a private company that could soon go out of business?"

I just graphed Mastodon's MONTHLY ACTIVE USERS each day for the month of November.

At the end of October there were 496K active users, and at the end of November there are 2.6M -- that's over 500% growth.

This is just ACTIVE users; there are millions more non-active accounts.

(For comparison, Twitter allegedly has 396.5M monthly active users, or about 152x the active userbase of Mastodon.)
