10,000 users now on Mastodon twitter!🚀
Up from ~6,000 just a few days ago.
I don't view this as a "one shot and now everybody is on fediverse". If this works it'll be as part of a longer campaign to get people to use fediverse and mastodon etc.
People on twitter need the repeat exposure to get them to shift. Eg when people get censored and shutdown, needs to be fediverse and mastodon shilling just like when bank accounts get closed and people shill bitcoin.
- Mastodon is a federated and open version of twitter. You can use choose between multiple different competing public and private servers called instances. You can also run and use your own instance which is best practice from a trust perspective. Users can interact and 'follow' across instances.
- DMs are not encrypted so instance admins can read them.
- The bitcoinhackers instance is run by @nvk who we trust to keep it up, protect our privacy, and to not censor us.
