I really hate feeling held hostage by the fact that while the Fediverse is cool and useful, it’s a.) just a bit too complicated for a lot of people, and b.) people are just too entrenched in Twitter/FB/Insta for a wholesale migration to happen. I’m glad to see that a number of people I follow on the birbsite are making their way over here, at least tentatively, but I suspect in a couple weeks traffic will drop off again and it will be like a dead mall again. crosses fingers that Musk keeps effing up and people keep heading over here.
