Michael Harley, welcoming all the newcomers to Mastodon:
I hope everyone coming over to give it a try can give it an honest try. While the two microblogging platforms have similarities, I think people are better served to think of Mastodon as it’s own thing and not just “not Twitter”.
I remember really struggling to find interesting people to follow when I first started and that was probably the hardest part for my own transition. So, I want to share some of my favorite people to follow on Mastodon.
It’s a great list of folks.
