Matt Haughey is the canary in my Twitter coal mine. https://a.wholelottanothing.org/2018/08/08/im-done-with-twitter/
@andybaio he's not on mastodon though, right? I'm also enjoying Darius doing bots on RSS, and still hopeful for micro.blog
@brook He has an account, but doesn't post.
@andybaio cool. I was just talking to him about slack being a good alt for DMs
@andybaio mine (although more like a straw that broke my Twitter back than a canary?) was Gaby Dunn
@roseveleth Yeah, that one hurt.
@andybaio I keep looping back around to thoughts of choosing to use less convenient/slick services in the name of values we believe in. Cabs > Uber, Domestic > Overseas production, Women- and POC-owned businesses > White male companies, etc. More users will hopefully mean a more robust interface over time. It's weird to see where the tipping points for these things are.
@LuBellWoo Twitter was awkward and boring for like two years, and they had tons of money pumping into it. All things considered, I'd say Mastodon shows a lot of promise!
