This begins with ABC, will end with other media resources. But I doubt Mastodon will be the future. Facebook and Instagram seem to be more viable options for mainstream media outlets, though I would also like to see more of them creating Mastodon servers, the way the BBC did recently.

Actually mastodon is the more viable option for journalist, because you're not depending on the good will of a company (or some rich people in control of it) to not block you or restrict where you can be seen and where not.

It's just that so many people don't care about this.

I can see European outlets, especially state-funded ones going the Mastodon way. Here even municipalities and governments are rolling their own Mastodon instances.

Yea it is crazy. Like most German ministries have their own mastodon Account and sprinkle in some news. And like some news channels have at least a Twitter relay.

Tech and scientists moved in big waves, so to be fair: I switched with the first waves and am fine. Yes I am using it less then I was using Twitter, but less social media is never bad.
