I rarely interact with twitter (aside from following links from here). My last two interactions there were August and November. But it is sometimes handy to have a login, so I'll delete my (former) work account but keep my personal one.

Post. so far looks to be an interesting place. The interface is pretty and relatively easy to use. Lots of people are posting photos - so there's that visual appeal, as well. It is not accessible by default, but there are calls to make it more accessible - and the site owners have been pretty responsive to user requests (it's in beta right now). It is ultimately more likely to be accessible than Mastadon since it there is a single set of rules (rather than each server creating their own), and it doesn't have the complexity of multiple servers - which makes it more accessible from a technological standpoint.

About 2 weeks ago they let everyone on the waiting list in - not sure what the status is now - but the waits have been short.

ETA: My former work account has been deactivated - so I've contributed one account to anyone tracking the number of deactivations.
