The fastest way to get your favorite Twitter user to join the Fediverse is simply to ask them for a link to their account on the Fediverse so you can follow them!
It's as simple as that.
The more people that ask journalists and other professionals to provide them with their link to their Fediverse profile, the more people will sign up and create one. #fediverse #twitter #exodus #mastodon #pleroma
@tn5421 Most Twitter users don't know there is an alternative. You're letting them know that there is.
@mjc So you mean, create a FOMO in their head, just by asking for something they should have, but don't yet have. Yes?
@shoq yes ;-)
FOMO? I get the concept, but what does it stand for?
@MariSamurai "FOMO = Fear of Missing Out." :)
@MariSamurai You're certainly welcome, but for what?
@MarcusAgrippa I'd gleefully direct MLRS fire on a pride parade these days. I was part of the underground club scene in the 80s and early 90s. Not even in the darkest clubs did shit like this go on. Everybody knew somebody gay. Nobody had any problem with them. As a matter of fact, the best DJ in Detroit for quite a while was at a gay bar. But now, all this utterly disgusting hedonism, debauchery, and filth... This is Weimar Germany behavior. It will not end well.
@mjc One thing that'd make me use Mastodon more, was if I could embed toots onto Discord servers
@SubspaceJetWitch Does Discord not support oEmbed?
@SubspaceJetWitch I know Matrix does.
@mjc How do you exactly ask? If I ask someone "Could you please send me a link for your account on the Fediverse?", they might not have an idea what I am talking about and even if they know, they might be confused what Fediverse service they shall choose. I have difficulties to send a link describing "Fediverse" or an information like "please subscribe here: ...." For example, if I send www.joinmastodon.org they might end up in very small instances that might not be well federated.
@gerald_leppert hopefully that prompts the recipient to ask, "what's the fediverse?" which opens up the opportunity for you to tell them what it is, and provide them links.
The Toot Zone has one overarching rule that guides us, our instance, and our members: "Don't be a dick!" All are welcome, and we treat everyone with dignity and respect. We do however demand the same from our users. Harassment will not be tolerated. NSFW content is permitted so long as it's legal, flagged, and marked appropriately. Advertising is not welcome.
