Diversity and Inclusion at Micro.blog: Where We Are, Where We Want to Go

Jean MacDonald:

Micro.blog was built from the ground up to protect its users from the type of abuse so common on Twitter and elsewhere. In the Kickstarter campaign, Manton’s one stretch goal was to hire a community manager to be steward of this commitment. As our community takes shape, I feel strongly we have something to offer to those who have not felt welcomed on other social networks. For my part, I am reaching out to people whom I talked to a year ago and encouraging them to give Micro.blog a try, now that there is a fairly active community of users.

I’ve noticed more women signing up and actively participating on Micro.blog, which is really encouraging. I’m glad to see that inclusivity continues to be a driving force behind what they’re building.
