Finally finished my two blog posts on why I’m weaning myself away from Twitter in favour of Mastodon:

What’s wrong with Twitter?

What is Mastodon and why should I use it?

@laura These are both really excellent posts! I can definitely identify with what you say about Twitter and follower counts. It makes it really hard to quit if you've invested a lot and built up a big following.


@nolan thanks! And thank you for your valuable work and writing in the area. I feel like a lot of what I’ve got on Twitter is privilege, but still feel invested in that pre-web 2.0 feeling that freely sharing knowledge is the best feature of the “web industry.”
