Meet Mastodon, the open source Twitter alternative that's spreading like wildfire.
Reading A beginner’s guide to microblogging on Mastodon by Seth Kenlon and testing the “Link” WordPress Format and the “Like” IndieWeb Post Kind.
I’ve been trying out Mastodon as a Twitter alternative for a few days and find it pretty interesting, although I find myself following nearly as many GNU Social users as I do Mastodon users.
I kind of wish that the Known platform I’ve been playing with on and off had been compatible with the fediverse. If there were a way for a platform to be compatible with both the federated social network schema and IndieWeb standards that’s what I would be using for this site.
