The Verge wrote a piece about Mastodon and Gab. There’s also a paragraph in there about what I had to say about this whole thing. Give it a read if you’ve got a few minutes to spare.
@JPEG "But if they go to war, they risk fracturing Mastodon in the process. "
That's the only part of the article I think really misses it. We're fractured by default and like it that way.
@tewha They also claim Gab to have a large user base which could impact Mastodon, but that’s just not the case.
@JPEG Well, I think it *will* impact us. It's a lot like a mosquito bite, or maybe a spider bite is a better analogy. You get bit, it's a pain, you maybe do something about it… then you move on.
@tewha Well said. I think that’s exactly it.
@JPEG well said!
@danarel Thank you!
@JPEG THhis article is just so much better than the Vice News piece.
@avolkov There was definitely more research gone into it.
@darius this article mentions dolphin.town!
@JPEG Thank you for taking a stand on this issue. I appreciate it personally and professionally!
@patrickmcurry Thank you for the kind words.
