ok. took 15s to get back. we are running the last mastodon version. i hope you all enjoy the new features. #Mastodon
@sergey stop that. no scam allowed here. last advice!
If out there there is some fellow #Italian interested in #datascience you might want to take a look at our upcoming new event: https://www.datasciencebologna.eu/category/eventi/
I'm thinking of making a quick next project: scraping the admin accounts of the top-100 instances and putting them in a list. It seems @TheKinrar doesnt't expose that information on the instances.social API - guessing that's intentional? Or is it not provided by Mastodon (didn't check yet)
In any case I have absolutely zero proof that people at large use joinmastodon.org to sign up anywhere, that is to say, the reason a lot of people sign up on mastodon.social is because of high search ranking due to its age and a lot of links from the press. So all these potential changes might be absolutely meaningless.
I've also seen people say "their top server is only 200k users" as a negative when checking what Mastodon is, so consider that as well.

The man the authorities came to blame
For somethin' that he never done
Put in a prison cell, but one time he could-a been
The champion of the world”
new mastodon feature #relay is awesome. excited to start streaming from other instances in our timeline

you may get some errors in the next few minutes. I'm going to start full instance upgrading with last mastodon version. ill let you know when we are complete.
Last Release can be checked here: https://github.com/tootsuite/mastodon/releases
@VersionObserverBot for add mastodon.cryptodont.io to be verified about Mastodon version and SSL. We are working to provide all information to show cryptodont users how seriously we are taking this instance. Thanks
it's a bit galling that people are criticising mastodon instead of thinking about solutions that could help instead. the problems that mastodon faces about moderation are nothing new in terms of social platforming, forums, and also to an extent: real life professions like counselling, working child cases, psychological therapy and the like.
here is why i started this instance. if you want to understand what is happening whit twitter take a look on this article!
