With the future usability of Twitter seeming a bit … uncertain, I have been exploring other social media options. A lot of journalists I follow are on Mastodon already so I decided to give it a try. As far as music notation goes, the designer of a Dorico competitor (and creator of infamous YouTube vids) is already on there actively discussing their upcoming v4 release.
Are there any other Dorico users on Mastodon? The dorico, musicnotation, and musicengraving hashtag results are all a bit sparse. Just wondering if anyone else was using it, and if there was any sort of Dorico community developing there as I’m still sort of finding my way around.
They’re called “toots”. Content is federated around the whole network, so your toots can be seen everywhere, but your handle is tied to a specific instance within the federated network (I believe it can be moved if you wish).
I’m not on Twitter or FB (too old, too grumpy, too grouchy) but seem to have succeeded on this Maston thingy (sounds like something from outer space, “The Invasion Of The Mastons”) so I now have a “handle”(?) of @Lloydf@mas.to Waiting with baited breath for zillions of followers…
Daniel posted a screenshot of the forthcoming update - looks great!
