Mastodon Explained in 100 Words

  1. Mastodon is a microblogging social media platform like Twitter; you can write posts ("toots") and interact with other people's posts on a timeline.
  2. To sign up, you first need to choose a server (an "instance"), like choosing an email provider.
  3. Start posting!
  4. It's probably adequate to start with the official app made by the Mastodon group.
  5. There are three timelines; "Home" shows posts from people you follow; "Local" shows posts from people who are on your instance; "Federated" shows posts from all people known to your instance.
  6. You may notice some differences and limitations in the experience as compared to Twitter.
