Also, on Twitter, I’ve no idea whether/if people see my tweets and why/why not. And if Twitter wants to, they can gaslight me by not showing my tweets or algorithmically reducing their reach. It’s a black box. And it’s theirs. So, yeah, your follower count doesn’t mean a thing.
@aral I would also argue that the fediverse has higher quality content from it's users.
Yes you have to take time to sort through and find the right people to follow. But on Twitter you're also sorting through more memes, shitposts, and spam.
Your statistics are appreciated!
