Many of my readers subscribe to the blog and receive it every day as an email. I also have a few thousand followers on both Twitter and LinkedIn. I appreciate you all and I hope you have a great 2023.
I’m not planning on leaving Twitter, but like many of you, I wonder if it will implode. It felt like the right time to stretch my wings and try something different.
I recently created a presence on Mastodon and can be found at:
If you’re already on Mastodon I’d love to connect. For those who haven’t tried this platform yet, it’s an interesting alternative. I’ve found that the platform leads to longer and more detailed discussions of issues than other sites. Be warned that there is a bit of a learning curve, but nothing that can’t be figured out.
I personally use social media platforms to find new ideas, and the quality of the content on Mastodon is impressive. It’s also nice to have a platform that is not cluttered with the advertising on Twitter or the site self-promotion and other clutter on LinkedIn. At least in the corner of the Mastodon that I’ve joined, the clutter is mostly nerdy, which suits me just fine.
