Just a quick notice in light of Twitter's announcement today.

Socel exists to foster relationships within the animation and wider artistic community. Charging for access in ANY way grievously undermines the foundations of any community & Twitter is no exception.

Socel (as part of the fediverse) exists to counter such crass exploitation of individuals.

If you hear of Twitter users looking for an alternative, please create an invite & share it with them or direct them to joinmastodon.org/

🎉 Welcome to newcomers! 🎉

A few personal tips:

👌 the Fediverse is NOT twitt*r! enjoy a more relaxed, courteous, benevolent way of interacting! you are part of it!

🤚 introduce yourself! also fill bio and post a couple "toots" before following people to have more chance they'll follow back..

👍 favourite and follow generously! This is how to create link around. No algorithm-god is spying on you, telling you who to follow, what to read! \o/

⚠️ many people care about CW... learn about that

💗

Would the community be interested in a weekly summary of new users to help introduce and welcome them?

We've had more than a few signups recently that mention being invited by a friend.

Unfortunately, they are hard to distinguish from spam.

If you have a friend you would like to invite, please use the invite people function which you can find here: socel.net/invites

This will ensure invitees can complete the signup process.

Thanks everyone :blobthumbsup:
