Oh hi. :)
I'm seriously going to phase out of twitter over the next couple of months. Last week's break proved to me that I can absolutely live without it, and that I will be rewarded by hours of extra free time every day.
I'm giving Plurk a chance, and will probably end up using it for all my micro-blogging needs. When there's something I want to share with the world.
I tried Mastodon back when it came out and I was very disappointed. As far as I can tell, Plurk has everything I need, even a solid user base, a business model and longevity.
