The Lawfare Podcast has an excellent episode in which three well informed people have a coherent discussion contrasting centralized social media (Twitter) to the decentralized model that is Mastodon, Fediverse and ActivityPub.

On the other hand, The Context Machine offers Holy Crap Twittergeddon, yet another embarrassing example of a couple of tech guys who have obviously not taken the time to learn how Mastodon and the Fediverse actually work. Instead complain and offer numerous bits of misinformation.

Confused by @username@instancename? Confused by the idea that there are different instances? And yet, they’ve been using email for years? It’s really NOT that difficult to understand.

They come off as entitled old guys shaking their fists at the sky because they don’t want to learn something new. You’re embarrassing yourselves and doing your listeners a disservice.
