me on twitter: ugh my TL is hot garbage, I need to unfollow like 200 people

me on the fediverse: followed. followed. followed. youre all followed. all of you are beautiful souls and I want to see all ur posts

@balrogboogie I’ve noticed something similar and I’m wondering why. Mastodon feels a lot like the early days of Twitter. Why is that good? Does Mastodon attract a certain kind of person so we have more in common? Are we on our best behavior because it’s early days? Maybe there’s something about groups becoming less cohesive past a certain size.

A little bit of everything you mentioned I think.

Sientific studies seems to show that a human being is not programed to have to much "friends" at once. So when a community grows to much you tend to be exposed to more "strangers"

That's why the "federation system" might be a solution to choose the social environment you are in and feel a better connection to those around you.

Even if you risk to create a bubble of people you agree with.
