We Are on Mastodon! JOIN US

So it's pretty wild on Twitter lately, and people are abandoning ship. Or at least, they're making sure there's another boat to jump to in case the ship sinks.

And that is where Mastodon comes in. This open source social media network is gaining popularity by the day, and honestly, I can see why. I've been on it for less than two weeks and already the interaction I've gotten is of higher quality, frequency, and enjoyment than anything I'd experienced on Twitter for a while.

Especially when it comes to art, Mastodon seems to be the ideal place. There are instances (the servers catering to people with similar interests) dedicated to art or comics. So if you're considering joining, make sure you join one of those rather than the big ones blowing up these days- the big ones are also relatively generic and potentially poorly moderated as of now.

Personally I would recommend for everyone to join yesterday. It's an easy learning curve and there are a lot of people happy to help you out and even happier to meet you and see your art.

Drunk Duck is already on Mastodon and I'm the one that runs it as I do with the Twitter one. You can find us on (search us once you make your account). The DD Mastodon account for now works as it does in Twitter. We boost (aka retweet) your updates, there's the quackchat (only it happens on Monday because I can't stay up late to release it real time with the Twitter one), and there's boosting of interesting webcomic related accounts.

However soon, as I get more familiar with Mastodon and its culture, I will be working the DD Mastodon account to have more content than that. I'll be announcing what here in newsposts and in the forum.

And if you want to find me on Mastodon, come on over

Instances that are art-related I recommend for you to try as your first server (you can move servers later, I did):
Comics Town
Mastodon Art (you might need to wait until they accept applications again)

I'm sure more will pop up as people flock to Mastodon and new servers are set up every day by different people and communities around the world!

So if you have the time and want more people to interact with art wise, take the plunge!

Don’t forget you can now advertise on DrunkDuck for just $2 in whichever ad spot you like! The money goes straight into running the site. Want to know more? Click this link here! Or, if you want to help us keep the lights on you can sponsor us on Patreon. Every bit helps us!

And I'm in🔓 Now begins the getting-adjusted-and-go-socializing game🧐

Many thanks for doing this Tantz, Twitter is definitely not about to become a better place for creators. Got my Masto account registered and I'm about to jump in!

Just sent an application for Indiepocalypse. Now begins the waiting game⌚⌚⌚

Good call, I'm there already 😎👍 Birbsite is definitely on it's last 2 legs.

Yeah, there are a lot of out outside interests that are spreading bad info about Twitter in an attempt to take out some kind of misguided revenge on it. There is no way Musk is going to drop billions on it and not make it work but I don't think Twitter as we know it today will exist in five years. He has repeatedly stated that he wants to turn it into a wechat type of platform he's calling 'X'.

The media keeps telling us that "people are abandoning ship over at Twitter". Maybe some are. Twitter keeps reaching all-time highs in usage though.

You can never be a member of to many social media sites. Might give it a try.
