Twitpocalypse Now

The big winners of this so far have been ActivityPub servers, especially Mastodon, and, where I've seen a lot of people finally jump out of the boiling pot (I was gonna say "frogs" instead of "people", but the whole right-wing frog avatar thing…). My handles are in that About page above you, if you want to follow.

If you're picking an ActivityPub instance, be aware that is a giant possibly-hostile mess like Twitter, and not really a "community" like many other instances. Pick a smaller instance, read the timeline on their instance's front page, and make a more informed choice. You can communicate with almost everyone in the Fediverse and see a similar Federated timeline from almost any instance, but the Local timeline will be different.

You can ask me for a invite, it's mostly populated by technical weirdos. Pleroma is also interesting, and might be more to your taste.

Anyway, welcome to the free world, ex-twitterers!
