Posts about why #Mastodon doesn't attract - or rather keep - more users are popular now. This might be an #unpopularopinion, but I think those concerns are either exaggerated or people should spend more time researching it before committing to an instance (a mistake I also did with my first account).

As for the tech part, now it's as easy as #Twitter, you make an account, log in, and post. For mobile, there's an official app, but also alternatives, as well as the website. More choice is good.

@ninokadic Honestly I think it's just the network effect. Journalists and companies have behind-closed door deals with Twitter and they'll never leave until it collapses. People think they'll want to keep both accounts, but they lose interest in Mastodon because Twitter is more stimulating and they can't stop smoking their crackpipe.

@ninokadic Actually there's another reason. This place just isn't popular enough to carry enough information for major events. I had to go back to Twitter temporarily (just a couple of days) to find out what was going on in Sudan and then Prigozhin's rebellion.

@apodoxus I mean there's a news tab, it's not great but it's something. Twitter is excellent for news, though, I agree. Now, I just read news portals online and sometimes use the tab.

@ninokadic I don't think anywhere else would have covered Prigozhin the way Twitter did though. I'd miss that.

@apodoxus Yeah, news and trending really was great on twitter. I'm just sharing my opinion is all.

@apodoxus Hmm.. Again, definitely more stimulating in terms of news and just the number of users. But still, engagement really is much more frequent here. I guess it depends on the person's priorities.
