@bbcworld lo que viene siendo hacerse un "barbijaputa"

@bbcworld The news is clearly good, but I have trouble seeing Mastodon (or rather Fediverse) as a _competitor_ of Twitter. It's more of an _alternative_, which is a term excluding the notion of fighting until the best wins.

Furthermore, I'm not sure federation is in itself robust towards the kinds of abuse happening on Twitter. If Fediverse goes to a hundred million users, curtailing malicious behavior may be as difficult on it as on Twitter.

Ideally, we should avoid inciting people arriving on the Fediverse to believe things which are not completely true.

Anyway, thanks for the journalistic work!
