Useful resource if you're admininng a Mastodon instance and you find it overwhelmed after a mass migration. https://nora.codes/post/scaling-mastodon-in-the-face-of-an-exodus/
Currently frustrated with some very loud Twitter Migration folks. I’m glad you guys are checking out the fediverse through Mastodon, but we are explicitly not a Twitter clone, people have a right to curate their timelines and some of that is done through content warnings, feedback is fi... https://arush.io/2022/11/10/currently-frustrated-with-some-very-loud/

Damn. Still no archive from the large Mastodon instance. I’m waiting on that before I do the final migration step. And, welcome to new followers. Mastodon is a different experience than Twitter but I think it’s a richer and definitely more interesting experience that’s worth the migrati... https://arush.io/2022/11/07/damn-still-no-archive-from-the/
