How did you hear about mastodon?
Really surprised by how many people Eugen has called.
@ElfLord ○ Some gay antifa dogs talked about it on hellsite
@ElfLord which do I choose if it's actually tweets/not-tech blog posts?

@ElfLord i dont know, i think i just read about it on twitter
@ElfLord personally invited to this instance by an online friend

@ElfLord my friend started running an instance

@ElfLord What's Mastodon?
@ElfLord Someone I know started an instance
@ElfLord it was a couple of years ago in a Linux and free/oss software meetup. I signed up to get my usual handle; but I t’s still hard to move here from twitter, though.
@ElfLord I've been busy
@ElfLord I saw the link on the dev.to profile of someone
