Twitter? Hmmm....

Post by kg »


It seems that there may be an influx to Diaspora from Twitter going on. While I can find no particular news on anything, I've seen a couple of people on Diaspora that proclaim they now are working from Diaspora and can no longer be reached via Twitter. I also just read a post there:

For all of you who coming from #Twitter to #Diaspora Please don't sign up on the big pods. As you know Diaspora is a distributed social network. So it would be better to go to the small pods or setting up your own pod.


I don't know if this indicates an influx from Twitter to Diaspora, nor can I find anything indicating this might be so. Has anyone else heard anything?

Diaspora management supports the anonymous hacker crowd. I follow anonymous and a variety of it's sub cults on Twitter and am often amazed at what I see posted there. Perhaps they are being busted by Twitter and will now be using Diaspora for their message deliveries. Like you, I don't know, and I have not seen any mention of a purge.

Now that you mention it, one of those posters mentioned anonymous and lolz. That might be what it is...it's being made a bit 'hot' for them on Twitter.

The very first day I logged into Diaspora I checked out the "recommended" members, which were few in numbers at the time. But, several of them supported the Occupy movement more than I thought was normal. It was back then that I figured this was no ordinary social network, and one other reason I'm not too active over there. :grin:
