      I have a couple thousand followers on twitter but no followers on bluesky or mastodon ahahh. It’s so hard to grow them. I post my content on all three for now.

        How does your engagement compare across all three?

          Mastodon I rarely get one or two favourites. BlueskyI get either ignored or 5-10 likes. Twitter I get anywhere from 5-multiple thousand likes, but 30-100 with maybe 2-5 quality replies is the most common range. I think issue is content is too niche and bluesky/mastodon need to grow before a significant chunk of people with my illness move there.

          I wish I could leave twitter, I hate musk with a passion.

            That really sucks. I’m sorry to hear that. Community support is huge, especially with rare illnesses. I’m not sure if it will be helpful, but try and search for your illness via hashtags on different mastodon servers. Sometimes things are missing from one server or another. I sadly don’t have any advice for BlueSky. But I wish you luck, everyone deserves to have a community.

            Any sense on if the Twitter engagement is real people?

            I worry with a profit motivated place like that that they’re incentivized to trick me, to make me feel like it’s a more vibrant place than it is in reality.

              A lot of them are people I know in real life. And others are respected / “well known” members of the community who have significant contributions outside of twitter. Can’t tell if the 300 likes are all legit on a post with 300 likes. But I am fairly certain about 100 of those are because I genuinely know the people behind the account.

            Huh, I have the opposite. On twitter I never get traction (I assume its because I’ve never paid them $$ to promote my content) whereas I’ve gone viral and attracted press from the same content on Mastodon

              That’s really weird. Because I obviously haven’t paid a cent to Musk either, and I’ve gone “viral” on twitter.

              I really just think it’s due to the fact there is a well established niche community of people of which I post very niche content on on twitter, so it’s rare to have a post that doesn’t do well for me. And if my post ends up more general than the niche ie. disability in general and not just my illness, it sometimes goes viral.

            Fediverse has a higher ratio of mentally ill to normal people than twitter, you’ll find your audience eventually.

          You do realize that people who stopped using Twitter before whatever you specifically have a gripe with could still be affected by this, right?

    The breach, sourced from a Twitter (X) database or scrape…

    The fact that they don’t specify, and that it’s names, usernames, and email addresses, means this could all be public data.

    It all happens on X, right? Wait I mean Twitter. No, X. Wait. The X formerly known as Twitter. Twix? No wait, that’s delicious candy. Well whatever, it was going to happen sooner or later, Musk’s an idiot.

      That’s unimportant. All that matters is that we hate Elon Musk and never stop talking about him

        I’m just about at my two minutes, so I’ll see you all tomorrow.

        Oh what? That was 40 years ago? We’re now doing 20 minutes of hate per day? Okay I’ll stick around.

    Okay this looks big as far as data, but is there any information here that isnt (wasnt) already public? This looks like profile information. Isnt all this already available?

        10 GB of a database table sounds like a lot of records. Of course if this contained pictures or other media then this wouldnt be much. But I dont know for certain what data was leaked.

      Well, text is very very small. Make a Notepad doc with your username, phone number, email and your data you’d put on a social media and check the weight and then divide 9GB by it!
