"Personally, I don't like Twitter at all anymore. I don't like memes, or internet culture, or silly jokes, or random thoughts from random people. That's the stuff that Twitter—and now Mastodon—is great at, but it's not what I want.
Trying Mastodon led me to trying Micro.blog again, and I've found that I've settled into it more easily this time."
