folks i'm gonna be real honest with you...
i NEED this Mastodon thing to take off because i just ordered 80,000 of these bumper stickers from the printer, and i can't afford to be caught holdin' my junk if this whole thing fizzles.
please consider my personal commercial interests when choosing a social media platform, thk u!
To put into perspective what is happening, here is 6 month of history of the processing required to run mastodon.social:
Hey @Gargron I have an important question
On April 1st can we please change toot to “florps” with no explanation and then back again the next day
Thankyou for your time
I still see the occasional person on Twitter say that Mastodon will never "succeed", but I wouldn't call what Twitter has "success". Mastodon is good ol' community building.
We don't want to be exhausted by brands and promotion, nor have the platform continue to be unethically designed and lack any backbone for moderation. Federation spreads out the moderation task and the lack of brands and promotional nonsense is good. We can just follow and talk with others which is all people really need.
