one thing I hate about twitter is having zero control of your posts’ reach. it strips agency, flattens context, contributes to uncontrollable harassment in the service of “connection”. imo mastodon’s insistence on following the same value of maximization, removing any ability to foster small local community, is equally harmful. if decentralization is about control then why strip that at the individual and community level? it’s no better than twitter. glad to be on the hometown fork

Can you share some specific information about how the hometown fork solves this? I am unfamiliar.

@dynamic Hometown adds another toggle to the web interface; you can choose between posting federated or local-only. Federated means doing it as everyone does, where as with local-only, the toot never leaves your instance. It's useful for community events, or just posting to a smaller audience when you wish to. And of course, you can further narrow it down by posting a local-only followers-only post, if you wish to for some reason.
