@gargron email journalists, retalk aboit masto as a user-owned way to minimize or eliminate the kinds of excessive data scavenging being undertaken.
@gargron reach out to wired maybe. They're weird and hit and hot trash but they have reach. Be publicly visible.
@Mainebot Unghhhh I need help
@Mainebot Alright! We've found the EXACT words to give me a shitload of anxiety ✨
But this is how you make the numbers big! You need to reach people, and typically you need someone with an audience for that. THEN, you need to be receptive here! Make it easy for people to find their place. That's working pretty good so far, despite a lot of weh weh weh about it.
You need a message that's going to make attention on Mastodon a good thing: we don't steal data, we're decentralized, we scale, we aren't subject to CA-style mining events, we aren't a single entity.
these are all the pieces of the puzzle: you have existing content that reinforces these points, too, meaning when a journalist googles for it, it shows up. Link all the pages you have together in one place, and make it your home, so people can get around easily.
Then, come up with your central message, your reason for reaching out. Then, with that, reach out.
But the most important thing you have to keep in mind
THE MOST IMPORTANT THING
Under ANY CIRCUMSTANCES do NOT have a mouth full of baby spiders while you try to eat food.
