My review of Becovi Search made a brief cameo appearance on page 1 of Hacker News. Hacker News page 1 cameos lead to the appearance of interesting referrers in our Koko Analytics referrer logs. One referrer, Mokum.place, caught my attention.
Mokum describes itself as a “small-scale Firefly-class social network.” It is available in English, Russian, Italian, and Turkish (Russian and Turkish appeared to be the most commonly-used languages from my cursory look at Mokum’s time-line). It has a very minimalistic user interface and its functionality seems to resemble Twitter, but with a bigger character limit (Pleroma may be a good analogue for those who are familiar with the Fediverse).
I was curious how we were linked on Mokum. It appears that someone created a Hacker News account (or bot) for Mokum.place which aggregates tweets from various Hacker News accounts. We appeared in one of its posts after our brief page 1 appearance.
