I wonder if Elon Musk can turn Twitter into the Gmail of the fediverse / activitypub / mastodon?

@sgryphon I'm not sure I understand that comparison. An email service versus federated social media?

@trinsec email is a federated service, with many small players and a few big ones, eg Gmail, Hotmail/Live/Outlook, etc.

The fediverse is federated social media, where even the largest are small. If Twitter supported ActivityPub - i.e. accounts can directly follow twitter accounts and vice-versa that would be good.

It would also be the largest instance by a long way.


@sgryphon Ah, on that bike.

I think a fair amount of instances are going to block twitter then, lol.
