Mastodon in the Spotlight

Elon Musk’s deal to purchase Twitter has put the Mastodon social network in the spotlight, with more than 30,000 new users joining in a single day, says Eugen Rochko on the Mastodon blog.

“Mastodon is used to publish 500-character messages with pictures, polls, videos and so on… Unlike Twitter, there is no central Mastodon website — you sign up to a provider that will host your account ... and then you can follow and interact with people using different providers,” Rochko says.

The Mastodon crew recommends using or the official iOS and Android apps to get started.
