Musk thought he could Ponce in, stomp all over Twitter, and we’d all sit up and go “yes sir!”
Well based on my Mastodon account (which I originally set up when he first showed an interest in Twitter) it looks like the mass exodus has begun. My friends are now popping up on various instances; and because of the way Mastodon works – no billionaire oligarch can ever buy it. It’s not for sale, ever, because it’s community run.
It feels nice; rather like WordPress, which is community built and just administered by automattic. The internet needs to be for the people.
Twitter will probably stay around, and he may get bored of it and sell it for a massive loss, but I’m now a Tooter not a Tweeter.
