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 https://joinmastodon.org/
Socel is a place for animation professionals, freelancers, independents, students, and fans to connect and grow together. Everyone in related fields such as comics, illustration, and video games is also very welcome. As an implementation of Mastodon, Socel connects you to almost two million users around the globe as part of the Federation; a network of independent social spaces communicating with each other.
