I've never managed to get the appeal of Twitter, though I stuck with it for a long while. Ditching it was a good move.
I noticed that super quickly once starting to poke around here. Even though I jumped on larger instances, seeing how easily people moved to other, smaller, more curated instances to get away from the rabble is always really heartening.
If you don't mind me asking, what prompted you to set up your own instance? Other than control, is there a benefit? Was it difficult?
That's a fantastic answer, thank you!
I'm interested only from a curiosity and tinkering standpoint; I don't have any other friends that use mastodon (to my knowledge) so it would probably not become anything more.
Who knows if it'll end up happening or not, though. plenty of other things on the "to-tinker-with" list :D
This Mastodon instance is for people interested in technology. Discussions aren't limited to technology, because tech folks shouldn't be limited to technology either!
