snoop the federated crimeline
Big name leftist accounts refusing to leave the unjust system that enriched them are a pretty good metaphor for the limits of people embracing socialism when capitalism has made them rich.

I have a tough time with Mastodon. I'm going to use it. But every time I login all I see is competitive snark about Twitter.
This makes Mastodon feel like Left Gab to me.
Mastodon is not "eventually going to beat Twitter." I don't even understand why that is what's on so many people's minds. The reason to use Mastodon, I would think, is to be in a place you can think, interact, organize, and exist with less bullshit.

TFW you log in to Mastodon and see all your friends Twitter banned for giving Nazis a sad:
My least favorite part about new folks logging in is the DM panic.
“Oh no, my DMs are unencrypted and can be read by the instance moderators and admins.”
“... just like every other social platform you’ve ever used, plus most email platforms.”
“Well, yeah, but on those other platforms the admins are a team of underpaid entry level employees at a faceless company, not a single person or small group of individuals that’s I can get to know”

Also, just because ActivityPub and Mastodon are Not Birdsite doesn't mean it's impossible for fascists to invade the spaces. It just means we have more collective control over their reach.
You should still practice good online safety. Get to know your instance mods. Use the report function. Don't engage with fascists for dunking points. We possess the tools to isolate them, unlike on Birdsite.
