As Twitter users fret over the direction that new owner Elon Musk is taking the company, masses of users have hopped over to Mastodon, an open-source Twitter alternative. Since October 27, when the SpaceX and Tesla CEO formalized his Twitter takeover, Mastodon has gained nearly 500,000 new users, effectively doubling its user base. But what is Mastodon anyway, and should we all be getting our accounts set up?
If you’re a Twitter purist who likes to use basic functionality like private DMing, quote-tweeting and user-friendly onboarding, Mastodon might not be for you. But if you’re looking to try something new on the social internet, then why not give Mastodon a whirl? Elon Musk isn’t there!

It’s pretty funny that the twitter exodus is happening not over excessive censorship and tyranny but over the lackthereof. … And he’s not even delivering half of what he promised anyway.
Anyway a mastodon guide should start and end with “pleroma does what mastodon’t”. The middle is “misskey is fine too, and gnu social and epicyon and…”
I agree with you. Most people do not know the Fediverse.
