This is a brief post today to let anyone who follows my blog know that I have officially socialported from Twitter/X to Mastodon today. If you previously followed me on Twitter/X, I invite you to check out and follow me there instead.

I first discovered Mastodon in November 2022 and quite enjoyed its positive federated approach to social media. I found it to be much less toxic and more about real engagement and collaboration. My ListMessenger account was actually my last Twitter account to officially move.

If you haven’t checked out Mastodon before, I encourage you to visit While the concept of federation adds a small amount of complexity overhead, the idea of selecting your own social community server that matches your interests while still being able to engage with other audiences really makes a lot of sense to me.
