Columbia Journalism Review: Journalists want to re-create Twitter on Mastodon. Mastodon is not into it.. “No one controls Mastodon—or rather, everyone controls their own version of it. There are thousands of servers running the software, and each one chooses which servers it ‘federates,’ or exchanges information with. Don’t like the users who belong to a specific server? Just block them. Unfortunately for some of the journalists who have joined the service, this mass-blocking (or ‘defederation’) approach is now being applied to them.”
