.@firstname.lastname@example.org you should join all the cool trans on Mastodon (hint hint https://notbird.site is a good instance ;p)
the most important thing to understand about mastodon is you are no longer a product to be packaged and sold. you are now a member of an ACTUAL community. your instance admins run your instance because they want to provide a cool space to help their community.
we of the fediverse, whether a developer, admin, mod, and/or user, we all want you to have a good time and make friends and have fun. we don't have shareholders to impress.
don't worry about corporate overlords, worry about being you and doing what you love with people you enjoy
