Mastodon looks just like Twitter using Tweetdeck, but it’s very different. It’s a federated system - which means there are many Mastodon instances. You can follow anyone on any Mastodon instance by using their fully qualified name (mine is @email@example.com). I used to be @firstname.lastname@example.org but I’ve migrated over (another nice Mastodon feature).
This particular Mastodon instance will be for TWiT fans, like you. If you already have a Mastodon account you can just follow people on the server. If you don’t, head over to twit.social and create one. This is most definitely not a replacement for TWiT.community. Think of TWiT.community as our TWiT Facebook. TWiT.social will be our Twitter. A place for links, quick updates, and other more ephemeral content.
See you there!
