@Gargron Mastodon has provided me a first step in more digital sovereignty. It is very refreshing to have a timeline that you can fully control.
Moving to Mastodon felt like moving into a new village. You start with an empty timeline, and you have to actively work on your first connections.
After some initial effort, you are rewarded with meeting interesting people. They welcome you in their communities, and you can keep on discovering amazing people through the messages they boost!
