With G+ shutting down in 10 months, it's the perfect time for Mastodon and federated networks to rise above being clones. Ask G+ users what they liked, why they stuck with it.

@AzureFemme my hot take is that people give twitter the company too much credit for ruining twitter and not enough credit to the people on it, many of whom will be coming here if they’re not already.
