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.
Mastodon source code is available at Github.
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 Masto.host 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.
