In late 2022, Mastodon feels like 2008 Twitter to me in many ways, technically and socially. I'm getting amazing replies. Mastodon hasn't been adopted by mainstream media personalities used to broadcasting, government agencies, or vast numbers of the public. (I suspect people who've been here for years, however, might feel quite differently about a million people migrating from Twitter! I welcome ongoing feedback about how I'm fitting into existing network culture and norms here, as always.)
Trying out Mastoot, an iOS Mastodon client from @libei.
Looks good so far. Though I do wish my account icon appeared in the header. (I switch between three different accounts—this one and to “branded” accounts.)
"Waiting for Spring"
I recently found this wonderful artist and wanted to share. You can see more of his work at:
One thing I notice about the #Fediverse of which I'm not sure of the meaning: as a culture it makes more use of the two-letter and random new-fangled TLDs than anything else I've seen. dot-social of course, but also write.as, tech.lgbt, librem.one, writing.exchange, mastodon.online, botsin.space... they're all over the namespace! :woot:
I was happy to use Linode because deploying the VPS, installing Cloudron and Mastodon were fairly simple following their guides online and videos on YouTube.
Not extremely code savvy, so wondering if it's a similar process on #DigitalOcean using a droplet or if you had a more of a hands-on/code heavy experience.
Any advice is greatly appreciated and have a wonderful evening!
I follow ~500 people overall
My timelines are FULL of great, highly curated content; more than I could ever digest
Plus the people I follow are great about boosting more people that interest me
Now that you're on Mastodon, please enjoy this brief rant about why you absolutely MUST share the stuff you love (even if it's smutty - as long as it's CN'd appropriately). On Here, discovery is mostly reliant on hashtags and SHARING - otherwise posts can't cross instances. So if you're just liking a post and not sharing it, you're saying 'I enjoyed this, but I don't want anyone else to.' Share stuff! I rely on it to find ppl, and so do you!
