@kamado @ParkinJim interesting. They didn’t talk about two things that have been concerning me. Bots and advertising. How do we keep those out?

@jerlich @kamado I think it is the same as any other unwanted content. Those instances that don't act on those will end up being cut off from the rest of the "Fediverse".

It's worth pointing out that bots that are open about being bots can be useful or amusing. The interaction is generally prompted by mentioning them with a keyword, though.

@ParkinJim @kamado I'm not worried about bots that self-declare as bots. I'm more worried about the bots and human trolls that made twitter so toxic.
