One thing I just realised despite spending the last five years on the Fediverse is something simple but profoundly different to Twitter

Here on the Fediverse, if I boost a post and then someone else boosts or favourite it, I don't get a notification

That's different to Twitter, where you *do* get such notifications

I'm still thinking about the ramifications of this from a sociological point of view, but I suspect, like the (intentional) lack of a quote-tweet equivalent, it's a good thing? 🤔

@dajbelshaw if you have not seen Indie Microblogging by @manton you might find it interesting (it has some mastodon stuff too). I’ve found his thoughts about likes, replies & followers powerful.
