I think I saw @bhtooefr and @calvin use the term "exodus" a few times and I think I discovered what it meant. It wasn't about a mass migration to mastodon, but a migration to a new, similar-but-unrelated-and-incompatible platform?

@coryw @bhtooefr I think it's the general zeitgeist in that section of twitter - of which some people want to take advantage of this new situation; and some (read: us) are promoting Mastodon instead.

@calvin @bhtooefr *cliks reply all* there's a specific person trying to build an actual thing. twitter.com/AdrianCJax

Granted, the whole "omg jack follows bad people" - is that even new or did someone just comb through his follow list in detail?

@coryw @calvin AFAIK, someone combed through in detail - I've found some other instances where someone found out that he was following those people and it didn't take off, now it did

@bhtooefr @coryw but I also see a lot of abandoned accounts from last handwringing from a few months ago - that likely informs people's ideas of it being a "failure?"

@calvin @bhtooefr
perhaps! I'll be perfectly honest here, it's difficult for me to keep up the pace posting on twitter, and reading it, so I can't imagine being able to withstand both my previous level of twitter engagement *and*, say, that level of engagement on this thing. Especially if like @samis or others don't ultimately show up and make this a different experience than I get on, say, oshaberi's IRC channels or in the internal maron sharepoint site.

@samis @calvin @bhtooefr

I am extremely interested in that, and will look into it or see if there's something I can run on my shellbox to do it.

@coryw @calvin @bhtooefr by the way I looked at the docs. It seems to be regular web app using Ruby and JavaScript...could even run on the same box as mastodon maybe?

@samis @calvin @bhtooefr Probably! Calvin was talking about being able to run other things on the VM we are using. I will admit to not being a skilled Linux system administrator, but he may be able to get it running if there's interest in another instance.
