Here's a single file, no dependency nntp / Usenet server library in python3 I wrote. It includes an HN gateway as an example. I have used it with slrn (tui), meli (tui), pan (gui) and thunderbird (gui)
Ask HN: I miss Usenet. Are there any modern equivalents?

I wrote a dependency tree python3 library to make your own NNTP servers:
It's used in my link aggregator forum, https://sic.pm/ which also has a mailing list bridge functionality.
As a demo, I have implemented a HN mirror on NNTP: (quoting README.md)
hnnntp.py querying news.ycombinator.com (hackernews) API and caching results in an sqlite3 database. A public instance might be online at nessuent.xyz:564 (TLS only)

Aside from mastodon what are some privacy friendly social media I should try out

Aether, a user-moderated and ephemeral Reddit-like, looks neat. Never tried it myself but I like the idea. I wouldn't rely on a guarantee of that ephemerality, but it's a start.

Request for some personal advice: How could programming skills contribute to mutualist causes?

I'd also recommend looking into anything to do with open source, peer-to-peer networks, end-to-end encryption, federation or platform co-operatives. For example: Matrix, Freenet, Cryptpad, Activity Streams, Mastodon, Aether, Scuttlebutt and Resonate. A whole plethora of services from video conferencing to online marketplaces to crowdfunding platforms to streaming platforms can be built using similar principles and technologies.
Can I use Mastodon or Pleroma or something else for a private (private network) Twitter like product?
4 projects | reddit.com/r/Mastodon | 17 Oct 2022
Aether looks closer to Reddit, but it describes itself as a "distributed," not "federated" network. At first glance that means there is one global Aether network that is supported by the many nodes. If you're looking to build a private network, this might not be a solution for you. But if you like the Reddit feel of threads and subs, you could look up Lemmy which is powered by activitypub just like Mastodon.
