Another great thing about #Mastodon over the bird site: Here, I don’t feel as though people are trying to sell me shit, whether it’s a product, a service, or an “image.” Here, people just seem more real.
Maybe it’s a result of a decentralized network of networks, or maybe it’s just because we don’t have the same number of users on this platform. I hope it’s the former, but either way it’s nice.
@rd That's one thing I've noticed on the bird site. Whenever a tweet goes viral the author always replies to their own tweet with a 'support my patreon/donate' message.
It's almost as if people are writing their tweets to be as popular as possible only to promote themselves ...
@rd yeah, no more spam from advertisers. They wont handle the fact the networks are spread. They could try to glue to the most popular instances though.
The social network of the future: No ads, no corporate surveillance, ethical design, and decentralization! Own your data with Mastodon!
