On "winning" social media 

I don't think the goal should be for the Fediverse to "beat" Twitter. I think it's okay if Twitter were to just go away (or not). The Fediverse can be its own thing without having to "win" or somehow "defeat" Twitter. Even if Twitter closes up and none of those people came here, the Fediverse is doing fine. Those users should scatter to the social media winds to meet their undoubtedly diverse needs. If some land here, great. If most don't, that's fine.

@cstanhope The fediverse wins if the people using it find that they're happier because they're using it.

It's not a numbers game.

@liw @cstanhope This. I'm still new here, but I think there's actually more to be lost by "winning" against Twitter than would be gained.

I don't want all the toxic people, right wing politicians and influencers here.

Let the fediverse be the home of those who don't want to be a part of that, all the brilliant, weird people.

Just people talking about what they want, not what they think they should want to talk about.
