Listened to this episode of the ATP pocdcast as they were talking about mastodon. They talked about the problems of scaling, large instances and what would happen when celebrities arrive. Personally I don’t want to follow celebrities or even slightly famous people who I can’t engage with. I love the idea of small instances of quite like minded folk combined with the ability to interact with other groups.

  1. @taylorjadin I think folk with a huge follower/following in balance will prefer twitter. I guess their experience will be more performative and broadcast rather than a conversation. I love micro.blog’s “no follower count” approach. I hope a small mastodon instance will make a good place to hang out.
