The Finnish Left Party (Vasemmistoliitto) just announced their new logo. My first reaction was ”twitter for commies”.
Which is, like, Mastodon?
Hmm oh yeah? https://social.coop/media/IWToAwfPxvi2SHSt1Vc

Worried about the dominance of big instances? No, really, this is quite natural.
As an emergent and self-governing system, it could be expected that the size distribution of #Mastodon instances roughly follows Zipf's law.
At first you see the top 6 instances, and then the rest. But on a log-log scale the size distribution is close to a straight line, which would be expected from an emergent system.
Ah, my kind of journalism 🍍 https://social.coop/media/t3FpTiNnU6nc39xKfyI
When a now-defunct mastodon instance is found from the vaults of the internet archive. https://social.coop/media/NFgjI7oPF_v7xVAuuxQ
In Sep 2007 my friend invited me to a new social media platform. It was fun to play with, but I never got the hold of it. As years passed, I grew to hate it, but felt forced to use it to keep contact with others.
In Sep 2016 I decided to quit it, but keep my account for the moment, because during those 9 years the service had got its tentacles everywhere and I wanted no extra bump on the road.
In Oct 2017 I still had the account I hadn't used for a year. Not any more. https://social.coop/media/OE3f4hrXH2MRJQazIrs
