NZ Government on Social Media

There has been a significant amount of commentary around 'Free Speech' and policies of various Social Media companies over the years with Twitter being the current centre of attention. As you know there are alternative Open Source social media platforms and in Twitters case the alternative is Mastodon. We have noticed a significant increase in the number of new users and consequent message traffic on the local Mastodon instances and one of the conversations asked 'Why doesn't the NZ Government have their own Mastodon Instance?'

Why not indeed!
