Mastodon must have been getting more users since a few days ago due to Twitter’s policy update, or downgrade, in other words.
I am optimistic about this situation.
More people on Twitter, even Japanese speakers, can jump into the Mastodon world. I doubt we all in the same Twitter timeline can meet again at Mastodon, but it is the new norm. We don’t need to use a single giant platform, as we have accepted without any doubt in the last decade.
This is also a massive step towards web3. We’re on the way. Distributed and decentralized, but have no barrier.
