@ElfLord which do I choose if it's actually tweets/not-tech blog posts?

@ElfLord personally invited to this instance by an online friend

🔘 I don't remember, but probably on Twitter

Other: I followed a migration from Twitter in 2018...

Somebody told me. I'm missing that option, so News it is.😜

@ElfLord I guess the closest is Eugen called me, as HBomb was the one who told Eugen to change the button to Toot

@wolfie @ElfLord when did HBomberguy mention Mastodon/Fediverse?

@ElfLord I was looking for a Tumblr alternative but, at first sight, Diaspora* looked too elitarian so I stopped here

@ElfLord Saw a friend's tweets start showing up with CWs and tracked it back.

@ElfLord I followed the Helldude, I think? I dunno, someone from Twitter

@ElfLord Saw a posting on Twitter aka hellsite about it, came over here, fell in love, and set up shop. ^.^

@ElfLord hi yes I'd like to vote for " @nolan shouted it from the mountain tops & I just do whatever he says"

@ElfLord I saw the link on the profile of someone
