This is a spectacularly good analysis of why traffic referrals from social media have fallen off a cliff and what it means for publishers. This all comes out of what @pluralistic calls the enshittification of publishing, social media, and ads. People are tired of and overwhelmed by clickbait journalism. The answer, of course, is to provide actually good content, and present it well.
In a recent podcast, @pluralistic & said he writes a lot cos it's a way to deal with the anxiety he gets about things.
I can relate. I have a lot of thoughts rattling in my head all the time. If I don't externalise them into words, I get overwhelmed, anxious & can't sleep, so I often share them on #socialmedia first because it's quick. Later, I will flesh them out into a #blog post or a #journal entry.
#Writing this way is a form of selfcare.

I constantly hear "Mastodon looks clumsy" as a reason why X people don't get excited. This is why I for one have focused in making my instance feel good and familiar. The problem is, it's not like this everywhere. It's not consistent. It would be fun to see something more modern in the Mastodon core in the future. After all, Mastodon is the most viable "Twitter alternative" of them all.
If I were to suggest Firefish or Akkoma, most people would be shocked. Mastodon is "almost there". People get in, but then give up. Mastodon should attract more than just a certain type of nerds. This is why it needs more work FROM us, the nerds. #Mastodon #MementoMoriSocial #MastodonBirdUI #MastodonDev #WebDev #SocialMedia

"Of the 153,209,283 X accounts following Musk at the time the data was collected, around 42 percent of Musk's #followers, or more than 65.3 million users, have zero followers on their own account. Just over 72 percent, or nearly 112 million, or nearly 112 million, of these users following Musk have less than 10 followers on their account." 🤡
Elon Musk Begs Taylor Swift to Post Her Music on Zombie Twitter
Between her astronomical album and concert sales, streaming dominance, and general icon status, Swift has no need for further promotion, least of all on a website that sent advertisers fleeing when the billionaire who impulsively bought it became obsessed with defeating the “woke mind virus.”

The Ukrainian government was savvy and quick with its #socialmedia strategy, showcasing stories of Ukrainian resistance all over social media only days after Russia invaded Ukraine in February 2022.
This was back when the site known as Twitter had content moderation and a level playing field.
Yesterday Justin Trudeau revealed that agents of the Indian government murdered a Canadian citizen on Canadian soil. When Canadian Sikhs went to post about it on Facebook, the platform removed their posts as a violation of Indian law.
Today, I presented my thoughts on the critical junction of democracy in our digital age for the media authorities in the nordic region. I based my remarks on the report, "A Nordic approach to democratic debate in the age of Big Tech," which offers a roadmap on how to address these complex issues in our region. My remarks can be found here, in text and recording.
Twitter-Alternative: #Bluesky knackt Marke von einer Million Accounts
Ein Jahr nach der #TwitterÜbernahme hat es den Anschein, dass Abwandernde auf unterschiedlichen Plattformen landen. Nun hat die nächste eine Million Accounts.
#Twitter was one of the most important tech utilities for #reporters to break stories and deliver #real-time news, until Elon Musk bought the company. He not only killed the #SocialMedia platform, he destroyed one of our most vital #news outlets.
The most important part in English:
Past weeks articles of heise online (https://heise.de) got more visits via #Mastodon than via #X/#Twitter. There are a few effects in it (we're re-sharing some articles in the #Fediverse on the weekend, so that brings extra visits and last Friday our twitter-bot did not work), but the trend seems clear: While Mastodon/the #Fediverse remain stable, the visits via X are decreasing now.
The one-year anniversary of the #TwitterTakeover is still some time in the future, maybe Mastodon overtakes X as traffic source for us completely until then?
