Welcome to Mastodon and thanks to any new followers.

I hope you give the place a good chance. There's a bit of a learning curve but it's well worth it.

For new accounts, I recommend checking out @feditips

They've been posting all day to help new accounts adjust to the platform.

@TonyStark @feditips Big day. I'm not a moderator nor server host, but i have pretty much doubled my follower count today.

@GreenFire
I hope they stick and stay active. It took me a little while to figure it out here. Twitter is really a :dumpsterfire: anymore.

About Twitter. I didn't have too bad a time on there, but after being an online climate activist for so long we have pretty thick skins.

I worry about changes there since I got some of the fastest tornado warnings and other government info from the platform. I also worry because I imagine that in many countries it is the most trustworthy source of information about their local political situation etc.

@GreenFire
It's definitely concerning.

Elon Musk is one of the last people I'd trust to do anything but use it for ego massage.

I enjoyed my time there. I had a good account for many years. But the abuse of the platform by bots, etc., became ridiculous. Twitter didn't do enough then. Certainly won't now.

Free, reliable information is vital to society. This is where capitalism really, really fails.

I am definitely not defending Elon, but I was glad that one of his proclamations is that he is going to do something about bots and I am not trying to glorify Twitter either as until it ended up causing J6 it was a cesspool and it hasn't gotten much better it seems as they allowed the insurrectionists to suspend me via their mass reporting popular accounts doing OSINT. I am glad for the shakeup is really what I am glad of because business-as-usual was BAD business.

@GreenFire @TonyStark @feditips

This is the most positive take i've seen about Musk's twitter takeover.

Though I also think one might want to be deleting all their critical of musk & associated companies tweets.

And I think Black twitter has significantly more reason to be worried.

Definitely a good point about Black Twitter. Musk's South African roots are showing more and mor the older he gets.
