Free, Open-source Decentralized Social Media Platform

What Is Mastodon?

It is not a dinosaur, no. Developer Eugen Rochko introduced Mastodon, a "free, open-source, decentralized social media network," in 2016.

Mastodon looks and feels more like Discord than Twitter, despite the fact that it promotes itself as a Twitter substitute. Mastodon has servers that are all connected to the Mastodon "fediverse," as opposed to a single continuous timeline, but each has its own distinct rules and content.

Posts are arranged chronologically rather than algorithmically, there are no advertisements, and there are no additional restrictions save those set out by the servers.

Let's not get ahead of ourselves; while many fascinating social media ideas are being developed, it will be exceedingly challenging to unseat Twitter.

The irony is that, despite the increase in Mastodon debate, Elon tweeted that this was the busiest week ever for Twitter usage.

Never forget that while the dinosaurs perished, the birds survived.
