@nathanpitman I suspect that will be a problem, particularly early on. There's a 'I've moved' setting, perhaps in future that could be more of a redirect than just a signpost.
@steve and even if you do move, what then becomes of your old toots, at present you can’t take them with you - there needs to be a solution to that.
@nathanpitman It will be interesting to see how this all pans out as time goes on.
@nathanpitman @paulannett Data payment will actually be fine for the great unwashed, paid instance for the slightly more tech savvy, and own-instance for the nerds, it's likely not a one-for all. The good thing though is that this caters for that, the Bird model doesn't. Time will tell if it sinks or floats.
