@srijays @mheiber @egrasmed I'll ping @Gargron but I don't think so - see github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/

At a network/server level, you could prevent communication with the larger fediverse. But Mastodon doesn't have that functionality.

@njoseph_1 It would depend what app you're using, if I understand you correctly

@srijays @egrasmed I suspect you'd end up with instances that had almost no local traffic at all.

You haven't seen many names because only 3-4% of TWers have signed up here, and most don't actively toot.

@hoodieak Your profile shows you as posting 171 statuses a day 😆

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!

@hoodie@dev.glitch.social @hoodieak Ooh, another ActivityPub implementation

Thankyou for your time

If having a coffee in the morning doesn't wake you up, try deleting a table in a production database instead.

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.
