@joeligj12 Totally agree w.r.t. gaining momentum.
When you Toot/Reply there's much more activity in the way of Follows/Boosts/Comments and your circle organically grows — almost like you have "leaves" of interest that are interacting with other people's leaves in a forest where you as a tree can move around freely. That's probably an analogy for the Fediverse or something. 🤔
Either way, I'll be damned if anything remotely simliar ever happens on Twitter.
For all the hate the federated timeline gets, it's probably the most human. When you're there at the top, someone somewhere is reaching out to anyone anywhere and for a moment, that's you.
You might not understand them and you might not know what they're going through, but you hear them.
For a moment-- across space --you're united with a stranger in time. That's simply unfathomable.
My daily social media #journey :
1- #Mastodon 60% (just started using a couple of days ago but it's now where I spend more of my internet time)
2- #Reddit 25% (you can really dive into subjects as stated on their tagline)
3- #Twitter 15% (to keep track with what going on in the rest of the world).
Haven't use FB since 2021 but still using #Insta from time to time for entertainment.
Hi there! Just realized I was enjoying a really good time here without having done at least some #introductions.
So here I am, at Day2 on #Mastodon and I'm really enjoying a life changing discovery. This social media is just *magic* it is changing my life.
Introducing myself is not easy as I'm actually on active journey on discovering more about.
Fore sure I'm a tech passionate, FOSS seeker, de-Googlifying his online presence. I plan to restart learning programming soon.
Nice to meet you!
I just published my second blog post, where I write about why our right to choice can be more important than our right to privacy.
I'm interested to hear your opinion on this either here or on the blog's comment section!

A farmer from my country.
Lost his turban. Bloodied. Yet laughing. Fighting for his and others' rights. Shouting slogans. The same slogans once raised by Bhagat Singh. A farmer from the land of Bhagat Singh.

Some people claim that instance-blocking weakens the fediverse, and undermines the point of federation.
This is the opposite of the truth.
The point of federation is that it limits the accumulation of power: no single instance can control fedi, because users can always switch instances without leaving fedi.
This is why fedi and fascism are fundamentally opposed -- and why the ability to block fascist/abusive instances is the very heart of federation's power to serve its users.
#OpenSource enthousiast supporting companies who actually care about their users.
Used to be an introvert guy with some social anxiety.
