I see why a lot of artists are moving to Masto now
thank butts my music is at least slightly discoverable outside of me just talking about it on social media o_o
@es2600fm I think it applies across mediums too, if you could get music fans using it I think it would be *incredibly* powerful too. Shame that it's still mostly a geek thing and difficult to get the uninitiated to sign up. I'd love to have all my friends on the london music scene up in here!
@gaffen it would be nice to see more music scenes here, yeah, cause atm i don't really see any big scenes, or haven't at least
@es2600fm Unfortunately musicians haven't quite seen what damage Facebook and Spotify are doing... Even though it's become well known that the only way to get page posts to your fans is to pay for the luxury. We need to have a similar 'exodus' moment!

"twitter is now:
- shadowbanning people who RT their art
- hiding posts with more than one hashtag
- hiding said retweeted posts
- hiding bumped posts
- banning people that post 'artist promo' tweets that retweet others
Small artists need your love more than ever now"
@es2600fm Sad day for Birdsite, but what a great day for Mastodon. Good that something like this cannot happen here. Welcome to all new people!
@kirby yeah, i guess the only things that are a-okay to tweet about is arguing with with, shouting, nazis and uhhh fudging cringy brands appealing to kids lol
@christopher so far all i've found is a Verge article about how twitter is struggling to gain and retain new users
but i have no idea how sticking a knife in the tires of small artists is supposed to fix that problem lol
@es2600fm I really only ever used Twitter _at all_ to talk about my music :/ didn't realize I was gonna be lowkey punished for it moving forward, jeez
@es2600fm none of that is true. the first person who posted this was mistaken and others started posting along with them. its in good intent but its not true
JACK, somewhere: "Those damn artists, taking up my precious political space, preventing people from engaging with vitriol... OFF MY PLATFORM!!!!"
