@liaizon и что там на мобилке?
@liaizon which mobile client it is?
@liaizon This could result in a large influx of users. India is a big country, and I guess we'll know if the Mastodon infrastructure is ready to handle it.
I guess I was lucky that I joined at that time. I really have nothing against mastodon.social, but the more instances there is, the better the network.
@liaizon would you share the pdf version with me if available for me to read? preferably on mega as it's easy to just put it safely onto my computer.
crowd intelligence (in social networks for example) is still more efficient to describe things that so called "specialists" in mainstream medias, that mainly just write #bullshit. They should at least ask review for comment by people that work on subject of their articles.
@liaizon Here's the online version:
From tweets to toots: https://www.asianage.com/life/more-features/141119/from-tweets-to-toots.html
@liaizon incoming a lot of Indians!
@liaizon i remember when everyone made jokes about tweeting on the toilet and being a "twitter shitter"
@dsfgs every instance can pick their limit. there are ones where its 10,000
@dsfgs there are a ton of inaccuracies in this article. But I am also glad to see the fediverse getting some press. Especially in countries outside of "the west" whatever the fuck that means
@liaizon Is Pavan Duggal a tooter?
@liaizon Wow that's cool! Is it also online?
@liaizon Some ppl may not realize that they can middle-click the image or right-click and choose 'show image' to see the full, readable size:
Please stress to new users to pick something from here:
and not all flock to the same instance, which will add a lot of server strain to people who are hosting mastodon out of their pocket and donations, which is ALL INSTANCES.
No big corporate advertisers here. Only people.
@gemlog only way a social network can survive is to be centralized. it's why all the others practically died at the advent of facebook.
@Beiz This is blatantly and historically false.
Perhaps you have a mistaken idea about centralization and federation.
Do you imagine that e.g. MySpace was anything except centralized?
Email is federated in exactly the same way as mastodon, only with a different protocol. Peertube, Pleroma, Funk Whale etc. are the same.
I think we can safely declare email a success at this point...
@gemlog People in this discussion are understimating the threat. Due to the lack of controlling entities maintaining censorship of this particular type of manipulation, Mastodon cannot survive as a fullfledged mainstream social network, yet it is headed for critical mass.
Here is a video series touching on this topic: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1PGm8LslEb4

@Beiz My only other thought on this is to do the exact opposite of what you suggest: do NOT rely on corporate 'channels' to choose what you see and read!
My own online activity predates the www, so I may have a different perspective from some new users.
Don't sit back and let fox, cnn's focus groups and facebook, twitter and youtube algorithms dictate what you see like you are a slave to some TV-like experience.
Curate your own. Use mutes, blocks and filters.
It's YOUR timeline in the fediverse.
