I gotta say, I'm liking the interface of Mastodon. I never tried Tweetdeck, I guess it's based off of that.
But I also appreciate the energy; conversations are happening quickly, and it feels a lot more like oldschool identi.ca. I guess that's literally true in the underlying tech decision to use ostatus, and thus probably also means connecting to many people who never left that segment of the fediverse.
Some good conversations there today about maybe Mastodon using the ActivityPub standard maybe
Oh yeah, and I'm firstname.lastname@example.org.
Interesting use of the Catalonia domain =)
