I tell plain and clear. What happened to Twitter can happen to the fediverse too.

if you concentrate on big instances

Big instances are expensive for the owner, (CPU, bandwidth, power, etc), so they put pressure on the owners to sell them. Plus, since they contain data, they are attractive for the millionaires.

To concentrate on a few big instances creates the real danger a billionaire can buy the whole fediverse just buying the first, say, 20 instances by dimension.

please use smaller instances, or create your ones, using services like https://masto.host/

## if you concentate on a single software.

if everything runs on a single software, say Mastodon, the billionaires may want to buy who produces this software, thus controlling the development of the whole fediverse.

So if you concentrate on a single software, you are creating an offer, and the demand of control is there.

Please use different software, like Pleroma, Misskey, Friendica: all they are capable to federate, and make it harder for a single billionaire to control the whole, just controlling the incumbent platform.

You can't walk to the horizon. But you can walk to someone else's horizon.
