    My favorite part:

    For some equivalent posts we’ve seen significantly larger engagement numbers for Mastodon compared to X/Twitter, particularly given the relative sizes of different platforms.

      Interesting, isn’t it? I saw a number of people making that same observation during one of the migration waves.

        I don’t do “Twitter style” social media much but when I did use my Mastodon account I found significant engagement. On Twitter my posts were invisible, but on Mastodon people found, liked, and commented on them. Conversation were good as well.

        I was a beta tester for BlueSky and I found the same “invisibility” problem there. Same posts on Mastodon, Twitter, and Blue Sky and only the Mastodon ones generated responses or any acknowledgement for that matter.

      It’s an interesting idea, but I wonder if the “Twitter-like” design of Mastodon is more appealing to brands than the “Reddit-like” design of Lemmy.

      I disagree, I’m able to get world events while they are happening realtime, from both reporters and lay people, and see which way the event is being colored and manipulated by comparing the two. It’s invaluable.
