Longevity and Glitchbird
A problem with a federated social network is that users must be certain their instance won't vanish over night. We've seen this happen on several occasions, so we want to allay your concerns if you decide to use the #Glitchbird.
We're not planning on going anywhere, however, we have a strategy in place if we do.
What if we do decide to close down?
The #Glitchbird won't likely close because we have solid staffing and financial standing. However, we promise to provide you at least three months' notice if we do decide to shut down the instance. Our members should have ample time to discover a new instance, migrate, and let their followers know about it.
