    Discontinued Moved to https://source.joinmastodon.org/mastodon/bridge

  • Another new tool in this vein is Fedifinder. It works by scanning Twitter bios of accounts you follow for strings that look like Mastodon addresses: https://fedifinder.glitch.me/

    5 years ago there was a neat tool called Mastodon Bridge that did what Twitodon says it does but much better, I think because it didn't require everyone opt in. It stopped working because of some change Twitter made to their API terms of use. https://github.com/mastodon/mastodon-bridge

    In the category of "low friction, something to say 'here is where I chat'", mastodon is rather high friction and at this time looks to be more self promotion than topics of conversation.

    I realize there's a general "everyone off twitter" feeling going on, but for someone who isn't active on twitter in the first place, mastodon looks to be decidedly worse in terms of signing up and the content.

    I do acknowledge that this may be just my "spend a few minutes looking at it" but for the casual reader, this doesn't appear to be something I'll be sinking any time into and will more likely shrug my shoulders if twitter falls into disrepair rather than seeing out a replacement for it.
