You know, as much as I love Pleroma, one has to wonder: Why do we have two microblogging services? What is the big difference between them? Sure Pleroma has more features and is more lightweight, but it's still a microblogging platform.
@person There's also GNU social, friendica, and diaspora to name a few. Mastodon and pleroma are just the most well known. Having multiple clients for a protocol isn't a bad thing. For one thing, it allows you to shop around if you don't like one option.
