    Your self-hosted, globally interconnected microblogging community

    I’d suggest looking at the server list on, select a few servers of interest, and then peruse what shows up as local to that server to find a good fit.

    Also, look for indicators of active moderation and participation in the Mastodon Server Covenant if you want to avoid toxicity.

    Some popular instances have been highlighted here.

    Finally, dont be afraid to use a throwaway to create a temporary account on a server or two, just to check it out.

    Be kind to the server owners by deleting your temporary accounts, though.

  • Killed by Google

    Part guillotine, part graveyard for Google's doomed apps, services, and hardware.

    sure, this is pretty standard. how many apps has google shutdown? if google shuts down gmail tomorrow, you'll lose your email. theres an entire site memorializing hundreds of apps google has killed, some of them *very* popular[0]

    however, the creators of mastodon have made it super easy to download backups of your follows, your blocklists, etc... and you can import them on any server. so even if that were to happen, you can easily setup another account and be running again.

    unlike any of the closed social sites, with mastodon, if one server were to close, the network will be fine.
