Thanks to the love and care from @mheiber, is now running on the latest Mastodon 3.x.x version.

Thank you Moritz! :blobcheer:

The big thing of having running Mastodon v3 is that people can now transfer their account more easily from one instance to another.

So if one of our employees leaves , they can bring their fediverse followers with them to their new employer's instance.

Also, if you have already an account with your current employer and decide to join ThoughtWorks, you can bring that account with you.

Of course, your previous or next employer needs to run v3 or higher ;)

@judeswae presumably it doesn't need to be just an employer's instance? but any v3 instance?

anyway, I was worried/thinking about this for a while, so that's really cool.

@egrasmed Yeah, it's any v3 instance. I'm just being a little snarky and wish there were more tech companies running their own. Would definitely make me consider keeping this a "pro" account, different from my "personal" one.

@judeswae ah, good to know!

yeah. i'd love for a mostly-worky instance where we use this similarly to how we use google chats or emails...

Are you using it for internal / private Toots as well?

@bascht @judeswae All toots are federated, there's no "internal" tooting going on .. if you're tooting on this instance you have to aware that the content is public

@bascht Adding to @mheiber's comment, We're using vanilla Mastodon. Not any of the forks that implement the instance only messaging.

@judeswae @mheiber oh yes – I somehow muddled this up with the "privacy" menu – but that's just "followers-only". I thought it'd be possible to scope something to people on the same instance.
