A very high level review of my experience with Mastodon/Fediverse after preemptive flight from the Musk Twitter takeover: https://www.openpersuasion.org/life-as-a-twitter-refugee/
I hope to dedicate more posts to the individual UX issues.
Trying to shift my focus away from centralized platforms and over to the #Fediverse. My impression so far is that "discovery" needs a lot of work here on Mastodon, especially on mobile.
Seems to me that there could be a lot of potential in the Fediverse content discovery space, perhaps even an industry focused on just that.
For now, stepping inside this world, it's quiet at first. There's a certain charm to it, like you're out in nature, away from the crowd.
