image Mastodon Instance

I created this Mastodon instance with the intention of allowing more people to explore microblogging in the Fediverse. Mastodon is often referred to as a Twitter clone, but it’s been my experience that the only similarity is that a Tweet and a Toot are types of microblogs.

The Code

Mastodon source code is available at Github.

Hosting Options

When designing a Mastodon instance, it’s important to consider an estimation of how many people will be using such a service at a time. I use to manage the web server and database on which my instance exists, and from with Mastodon, I am able to moderate or administer the entire site.

Previously, I hosted my instances through Digital Ocean.

Both hosting options allow me to scale my cloud to meet the needs of the community.
