Today, Medium is launching a Mastodon instance at to help our authors, publications and readers find a home in the fediverse. Mastodon is an emerging force for good in social media and we are excited to join this community.

    I wonder why they’re doing this, considering that the fediverse has the ability to break medium’s stranglehold on long-form blogging too. Writefreely and plume already do what medium does, but better, and already plugged into the fediverse.

      @muad_dibber @ragica Hmmm, likely hoping to give their writers a reason to stay, and federating will likely come when they feel that they need to leverage their brand to keep users from jumping ship.
