Mastodon is a social network that is part of the Fediverse.
Like Twitter, it's a place where you post to your followers and they can read you and you can read the people who you follow. You can post text, images and video (And very soon polls!)
Unlike Twitter, Mastodon is federated. That means the social network is spread out in many nodes, or instances. In the words of @eightbitsamurai: The Fediverse is an MMO and your instance is your Guild.
give a warm welcome to our first moderator here on gentler earth, @6BPA9NMU! :)
while we're at it:
we are an openly antifascist instance. this place was born out of a need to protect those who need it from the rise of fascism worldwide.
we will moderate heavily in that regard. if you need refuge, whether it's from online harassment, an influx of bad news, or real life fascism on the rise in your country, don't hesitate to contact us.
