On Mastodon — Four Months (and Five Years) Later

I still don’t consider Mastodon a straight Twitter alternative — at least not the Twitter we’ve come to know during the Trump/Musk Error — but it has replaced the Twitter I used to know and love back in the day.... Contrary to some self-serving media coverage, people continue to sign up and kick the tires — most surges apparently align to Musk's latest shenanigans — and a lot of them are sticking around and, like me, enjoying the experience.
