Hey, if you were telling your friend about Mastodon, which of its defining characteristics would you mention?


@Gargron I usually tell them about the first. And then I saw is the software I'm using.
It might seem silly, but one of the main arguments for me compared with is that Twitter decides which tweets you see and can thus influence your and other peoples opinions. While Mastodon shows objective timelines.
Another one is that your account can't be closed by whomever has power over Twitter.

@stevenroose @Gargron hi Steven, this post appears on my timeline and I like it. Well said.

@stevenroose @Gargron Well, the nodes that block a little over a million users by default aren't objective, so... :thunk:
