Say @matrix I'm trying to make sense of how #element and #mastodon coexist in the fediverse. Mastodon uses #activitypub while Element uses #matrix. In essence, the two have different usecases but both follow the 'new' decentralized server paradigm. Are there situations / applications where they connect in some way?

@kerfuffle @matrix Matrix is more geared towards instant messaging whereas Mastodon is for microblogging.

@rodolphe @matrix Like i said: I know how they're different. I'm wondering where, if anywhere, they overlap / integrate.


@kerfuffle @matrix Ah okay I understand. Apart from bridges, I'm not aware of any overlap between them.
