Migration from Twitter to Mastodon | ads’ corner

Posted by jpluimers on 2022/11/22

Yet another interesting post (I think it is via [Wayback/Archive] isotopp, but I cannot find the original message any more): [Wayback/Archive] Migration from Twitter to Mastodon | ads’ corner.

Kris helped me motivate to enter the Fediverse, so here I am: @wiert@mastodon.social

Posted by jpluimers on 2022/11/18

Given Elon Musk taking over Twitter, I decided to create an account in the federated social network Mastodon part of the Fediverse realm. In my case it is [Wayback/Archive] Jeroen Wiert Pluimers (@wiert@mastodon.social) – Mastodon (which you can visit at mastodon.social/@wiert).

Right now the account is rudimentary. More meta-data and media will be added later.

Mastodon is open source at [Wayback/Archive] mastodon/mastodon: Your self-hosted, globally interconnected microblogging community and you can join via [Wayback/Archive] Mastodon – Decentralized social media (joinmastodon.org) after choosing a Mastodon server/website. I have chosen [Wayback/Archive] Home – Mastodon (mastodon.social).

Given a Mastodon has a trunk, messages on Mastodon are called “Toots”.

For now some of the Tweets and links that Kris ([Wayback/Archive] Kris (@isotopp@chaos.social) – chaos.social) posted helping me to start on Mastodon.

This is fine #Twitter

This is fine #Twitter (illustration inspired by KC Green; creation video below)

(Edit 20221114: script for high-res images; more tweets from Jan) (Edit 20221116: hat-tip to Sam) (Edit 20221120: archiving t.co links by Michele Weigle) (Edit 20221122: added article by Johan van der Knijff) (20221128 Tapue export tool by Mike Hucka)

Time to be prepared:

The below will help you exporting your Twitter content (Tweets, DMs, media), perform some conversions on them and optionally delete (parts of) your content.

Important: keep your Twitter account afterwards (to prevent someone from creating a new account with the same handle).

Jelmer Visser on Twitter: “Doelwit van een flamewar op Twitter? Dat is vervelend. Zo doorsta je de storm. … 1/*”

Posted by jpluimers on 2022/10/02

Good thread: [Archive.is] Jelmer Visser on Twitter: “Doelwit van een flamewar op Twitter? Dat is vervelend. Zo doorsta je de storm. 1. Blijf kalm, reageer nergens op 2. Traceer de ergste aanjagers, herkenbaar aan quotetweets met meeste likes 3. Zoek naar je eigen naam met een sokpop voor screenshots van geblokte accounts 1/*”

Herhaald appel aan #MeerOverMedisch (hallo @ReneSteenhorst): zorg dat je behalve per columnist de columns van individuele columnisten makkelijk terug kunt vinden. Bijvoorbeeld de geweldige columns van @IvanWolffers.

Ik herhaal mijn appel van een paar weken terug:

[Wayback/Archive] Jeroen Wiert Pluimers on Twitter: “Tip voor #MeerOverMedisch (ik hoop dat @ReneSteenhorst dit kan laten fiksen): zorg dat je behalve meerovermedisch.nl/columntypes/gastcolumn/ ook per columnist de columns van individuele columnisten makkelijk terug kunt vinden. Bijvoorbeeld de geweldige columns van @IvanWolffers.”

De volledige draad vind je op [Wayback/Archive] Thread by @jpluimers on Thread Reader App, waarover hieronder meer.
