Medium launched a Mastodon instance

I accidentally ran into a recent Medium announcement about their launch of a Mastodon instance over at their blog.

Neat. ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ

I moved from Medium to Write.As for personal blog a few years ago and last year I tried Substack for a new project. I wonder if Substack will also support Mastodon. Not that I am active there; I have not been active in my Mastodon timeline in ages.

I just think it is neat to have major internet properties supporting non-corporate social media like Mastodon.

That is a lot of files.
