@celso I agree with most of the article, but doomed assumes a level of expectations that perhaps was never realistic.

At this point, my opinion has evolved to see it less as an alternative to Twitter, and more as an alternative to forums

@celso Although I agree somewhat (people having more than one interest, legal issues), I don’t understand the insistence on owning an instance. Just like in email, why would most individuals want to do that? I think what makes sense, again like email, is entities with relevant visibility having their own instances with their own content (news media and governmental entities being obvious examples). Letting that be on the hands of a single private company may end in a Twitter-like shitshow.
