It's like Twitter except it's distributed. So people can run their own instances, and people on one instance can interact with people on other instances. Supposedly it's comfier than Twitter because you can actually have conversations with people, but the sorts of people on most instances aren't who I'd want to have a cup of tea with. The sorts of people who *constantly* complain about politics and their periods (not joking) or whatever. And those instances usually have strict moderation policies. Other instances are more loose, but they are mostly filled with shitposters. I just want a middle ground: decent, friendly, interesting people. Am I asking for too much? Maybe. Maybe the world is just filled with shitty people. Or maybe it's just the internet. Who knows?
