It's not the "Mastodon Network" It's the Fediverse
Referring to the entire thing as Mastodon is simply incorrect pls don't
@Ocean22 I find it's sometimes easier to call it "mastodon" when trying to get people in, tbf. It's a lot easier to say "get on mastodon" than "join the fediverse," b/c that leads to a lot of questions with answers long enough for them to lose interest.
