That is surely good example.
Decentralization example for other institutions and organizations, and ultimately majority of user will switch from Twitter and Facebook.
@pettter Nice! :) The more, the merrier!
I hope this will become a thing more academic institutions -- and related entities -- will embrace!
@nikola so has U. Twente 😀
@nikola There's also instances for locations as well, like rva.party for Richmond, Virginia
@trebach Cool! Is that an "official" instance in any way? I.e. is it used / endorsed by any city officials?
@nikola Almost certainly not. There's only 46 users and the rules preclude some government officials from using it at all.
@trebach Ah. Still a neat idea, though!
I was surprised by the MIT instance because it's on an .mit.edu subdomain, which means it has at least a minimum of institutional support.
