[I'm not sure what category to stick this in but wanted to compile discussions related to twitter alternatives and just general other social media sites since other threads are kind of derailing or being flooded with condescending nonsense also do not bring that here]
ANYWAYS I've not joined too many new sites for want to avoid spreading myself too thin but I thought it'd be helpful to have one place to keep track of some of the popular ones and things that are going on with each of them
A big one that I personally wanna give a quick boost to is Inkblot, today they'll be holding a twitter space about accessibility features and taking input from disabled creators within the creative community [tweet here] I've been following the site for a while and they seem very promising as opposed to other sites I've seen so far. As they've mentioned themselves the sites still in beta so it will have it's bugs but they listen to the community and are growing well. Their main thing has been maintaining the site and slowly growing it's tools and features but also garnering the funds to do so and have been very transparent about where funds go (so again i'm really digging this place)
Onto the next, it looks like another twitter mirror, somewhat similar to mastodon I guess, Hive has now gained some buzz (pun not intended). I don't know much about it and haven't joined myself but it seems to have seen some positive tweets about it blow up and thus is gaining traction. I'd still prefer to wait before joining and find out more about their policies and tos but it's there.
As for Tumblr, the sites not new by any standards and has some reputations but people are still joining. A big thing for some folks is the big ol nsfw ban which they seem to have dialed back by way of implementing a better filtering system (ymmv) which allows users to control how their posts are labeled and what shows up in their dash (this is all under community labels which can be changed for individual posts when their created or shared as well as dashboard changes under settings and privacy). There's also been a swath of posts giving folks quick tips on how to use and navigate the site and how to better curate their experience (not a self plug but my four/five most recent posts include some of these tutorials [link here])
I'm aware there's other sites people are going to like Pillowfort, Mastodon, Instagram and even DeviantArt but if you happen to know of any and want to share just for information's sake then this'll be the place
again tho play nice and plz stay on topic i dont wanna see arguments about rich idiots i'm over it
