Thank God Mastodon’s a thing y’all, it actually is a good answer to Twitter in a way none of the ‘answers’ to YouTube and Facebook are even trying to be. It’s still growing but it actually offers up real solutions to a lot of the problems that are behind people becoming so disillusioned with bird site. Whereas most of these other ‘answer’ platforms are just trying to remake a busted wheel and be the poorman’s YouTube or Facebook 2.0 etc.
@slipstream So full disclosure: I haven't dug deep enough into PeerTube to form a PeerTube specific opinion. Generally though, the only real way to compete with big Corporately operated monopolistic infrastructure is with a federated
Cooperatively run one. With most competitor sites the draw is 'You hate X platform run by big Corporate Totalitarianism? Well come to Y platform run by smaller startup Corporate Totalitarianism!'
@denidimochka I honestly believe that its better than Twitter. The UX is superior and I've found it to be a lot faster too.
Every time i use Twitter, everything feels slow and clunky. Not only that, but there seems to be more engagement and conversation here.
