Hm, Elon Musk has bought Twitter after all and now users are busy making (empty?) threats to leave the platform.

So far, I always called Mastodon a failed attempt at building a better Twitter because being a shithole is what makes Twitter successful in the first place. I mean, I don’t really see a mass exodus happening, unless every timeline now gets a pinned MOTD by Elon, but its an interesting question: how much of the userbase would have to break away till the influencers start thinking that the platform no longer provides a large enough audience to bother with and begin to diversify into the Fediverse?

Should be interesting to see how Mastodon will deal with the windfall (if there is any)…
