@cosullivan a nice idea. seen a few posts mentioning #newcomers. must have missed something. how come there's a wave of new people into #mastodon? #curiosities

@ahanon Twitter deactivated third-party apps; also many are disaffected by the centralized "we can't suspend these abusive accounts because they make us money" commercial moderation of Twitter.

@cosullivan thanks for the explanation. Perhaps a good example of how, to sustain itself financially, an organisation's quality comes apart. #entropy πŸ˜‰

@cosullivan actually, we have already standardised #introduction and possibly #meta + #mastodon as hashtags that people use similarly across instances. was wondering whether it might be useful to have some other functional and general hashtags that could allow new people to feel more welcomed and cozy to begin with?

@ahanon I've used for labelling toots showing how to make RSS and Atom feeds from Mastodon account page. is used as often as . Doubtless there are more but can't think of tem right now ('Morning!)
