Mastodon Happenings 

Maybe I picked a bad time to join Mastodon, but so far it seems like it's as bad or worse than Twitter.

@sbanwart Things get worse before they get better. Might be cliché but it's just about the only thing I can think of. It's currently in a state of turmoil but the dust will settle

@brandon Yeah, I think I'm going to wait and see how this current mess plays out. Maybe my expectations when joining were unrealistic too.

@sbanwart What were your expectations?

@brandon That there would be a lot less noise, and more signal. That people who disagree could have a meaningful debate about their differences without the screaming and ad hominem.

@sbanwart There's /technically/ less noise, but that's more from a corporate content perspective. But again, that's only technically.

Every social media platform that exists in the same time frame as these big corporations and whatnot will inevitably shift towards being something that's /somewhat/ influenced by them, because we're influenced by them, and we're here.

That includes the political agendas unfortunately...and the mess that comes with tribalism
