An aside on Like many, I used to use Twitter to monitor fast developing political events. This was a bit of a test of for me. There I was, quietly boosting bird pics, science, history, dogs and film reviews when my feed suddenly gives me the Brazil news. Thanks to people I follow. I then used relevant hashtags to boost key news myself. It all worked pretty well and fast and I didn’t feel a need to pop over to Twitter. Good. Cheers.

I must say, I am concerned that important voices on twitter have not yet switched over to mastodon, and that some of those that have are disappointingly inactive or see it as merely a side-kick. 👉 Don't! Mastodon is distributively owned, ad-free, non-tracking, which is the way social media should be. Free yourselves from the poisonous thought that essential public services can't work unless they're in the hands of tech billionaires. The purchase of twitter was for political control I'd think.

Just had a request for a "Share on Mastodon" button for a blog.

As far as I know there's no official "Share on Mastodon" button, but there are several third party options.

If you've used a "Share on Mastodon" button on your site, could you give your recommendations/experiences?
