Well, I saw Gryzor is there, and maybe you too? We can collect our ID if you like.

Mine is: @TFM_FutureSoft

Eventually we can make a Wiki page out of it. Just in case nothing is bad with that.  :)

I left, for several reasons.

Mastodon aligns better with my view re: Open Source, and in case you want to have a bit of social network, it is healthier.

A lot of the people I was following in Twitter are still there, in their cozy retro-bubble I guess; and I miss some of them, but overall I'm much happier in Masto. There aren't that many Amstrad people AFAIK (but that is easy to fix!).

You can search for "@reidrac@social.sdf.org" if you want to find me there.
Released The Return of Traxtor, Golden Tail, Magica, The Dawn of Kernel, Kitsune`s Curse, Brick Rick and Hyperdrive for the CPC.

If you like my games and want to show some appreciation, you can always buy me a coffee.

Eh, Mastodon is ok if you only use the medium for a specific community. But if you use a medium to follow diverse topics, it's pretty troublesome. Plus the user base is a drop in the ocean...

It all depends, but I see that is not like "everybody in on Twitter", and that's a deal breaker for some people (e.g. famous person X is not in Masto). It was never my use of Twitter; I was interacting with a small group of people with similar interests; which is what you say Masto works best once you find those users.

I miss a few retro-devs, the Japanese MSX community, some modern gamedevs, and some retro-folks. But to be honest, the Amstrad conversation on Twitter was close to none. What I don't miss is the ads, the toxic people, Space Karen, doom-scrolling, people pushing shit into my TL because quote-RT, etc.

Whatever. At the end of the day, social networks are a waste of time anyway :D

I'm not on Twitter (fuck calling it X, elon musk is a turd) and have no plans to go back to it ever again..

I'd rather sacrifice "reach" to be somewhere I can be queer and happy and waffle about amstrad while i'm at it.

I like mastodon for that :)

Buuuut "reach" isn't about metrics and internet fake points, it's about people being able to find you, which on Mastodon... not so much.

But let's not turn this into a X vs Y thing - or rather, feel free, I hate Musk and he's made a huge mess out of Twitter, but maybe on a separate thread?

Used to be on it many years ago. It was good during the early to mid 2010s, but it became very toxic very quickly.
I barely even use Facebook anymore, it spends most of it's time deactivated (although I still use the messenger).

Social media has run it's course for me really.
Currently playing on: 2xCPC464, 1xCPC6128, 1x464Plus, 1x6128Plus, 2xGX4000. M4 board, ZMem 1MB and still forever playing Bruce Lee.
No cheats, snapshots or emulation. I play my games as they're intended to be played. What about you?
