Over the last few months I’ve transitioned from using twitter to my own self hosted social network instance on the Fediverse. After seeing the complete mess the U.S.A in with sensational politics on Twitter the platform lost its appeal to me. I joined something different. The Fediverse.
I started with vis.social and eventually moved to my own instance plorma. I’ve had a lot of great interactions there with creatives and programmers all over the world. However not many of my friends or family know about my feeds there so I decided to aggregate them here via a plugin.
