Sorry, I won't be active on #Niu, #Mastodon. Here are the reasons.
- User base (MAIN REASON). I'm following many accounts on #Twitter, most are official accounts of all kinds of organizations, such as #Ubuntu, #SekaiProject, etc. Most of them don't have Mastodon accounts. Besides, my Tweets may be seen by more people in Twitter than that in Mastodon.
- Full-text searching feature is missing.
- The horizontal scrolling is too sensitive in mobile phone web version. (not the main reason)
But Mastodon is still better than Twitter in some aspects, which makes me in a dilemma while choosing between Twitter and Mastodon.
- All you need to register a new account is an email (MAIN advantage). Some websites require your phone number during registration, such as #Google, #Telegram and nearly all websites in Mainland China.
- "Who can see this Toot" feature.
In a word, Mastodon is awesome but I would like to be activate in Twitter due to the reasons mentioned above.
