Ever since Elon bought Twitter, it caused mass exodus to Fediverse and companies have launched their own Mastodon instances. I am an ex-redditor and I joined Lemmy recently. Do you think Reddit will go the same way Digg did?
PS: I was permanently suspended from Reddit for unspecified harassment.

I think something big should happen sitewide for making redditors searching for an alternative and find Lemmy. It wouldn’t happen in Twitter’s case for example if Elon wouldn’t do such critical mistakes by his side.
Exactly, I think Twitter could have continued on indefinitely if Elon hadn’t dropped in and mucked everything up. The model worked well enough and they were finally tamping down the moderation issues more or less. There were problems with monetizing, but even that gap was being shrunk.
Yep. Because let’s be honest, most of the people that transferred to mastodon haven’t done that based on privacy reason.
