I'm not sure why I'm saying all this.

I think it's because all the really good stuff in Twitter (@-replies, usable clients) was actually designed and built by users, not Twitter. Twitter, the company, didn't embrace those ideas until very late.

Mastodon and other fediverse remind me of that time, when good ideas could come from anywhere. It's the bottom-up experience that's been missing from the web for years.

If you are wondering how does Mastodon do the magic of talking between all the servers, read the protocol behind, #ActivityPub activitypub.rocks/ #India

I have boosted so many folks today, here is my favourite handle from bird app, so follow @imMAK02 #FF #India #Introduction

For those who don’t know he diligently documents all lynching crimes under this fascist government, he shares videos of hate speeches by prominent politicians which is way to marginalise & dehumanise religious minorities.

If you are anti fascist follow him
