It may be a bit late, but I think I should do the #introduction
I've used #Twitter
for almost 9 years, but I dislike it for the same reasons I dislike #Google
and other big commercial data harvesters. I've run my own DNS, web, mail, chat and other servers for some 15 years, so I decided to get "my own Facebook and Twitter" as well.
After having tried #Diaspora
, I'm now settling for Hubzilla. It may look a bit awkward and clunky when compared with Mastodon, but it does everything it should do, including talking to pretty much the entire world.
So... You'll still see me on Twitter (WoefdramCX), and I'll keep my Mastodon account @Hans van Zijst
open for now, but this one here is "my" account.
